Property description

Tenure: Freehold

A substantial family house in an elevated rural setting with an array of excellent schools nearby. The house has spacious reception rooms, an integral flat, indoor pool, stable & garage block, all weather tennis court and superb established gardens including a lake. About 10.3 acres. EPC rating F.

Coombe Cross is a handsome country house of traditional stone construction under a clay tile roof, clad in creeper, climbing roses and a magnificent wisteria. The house is situated in an elevated rural position and bounded by mature gardens and grounds with an enclosed duck pond. There are far reaching views over the surrounding rolling Somerset countryside.

The house is approached from a quiet village lane with a gravelled 'in and out' drive leading to a turning circle to the north of the house. The principal rooms all benefit from excellent views and the indoor pool, built in 2000, has been designed with care to complement the house. There are some exceptional rooms, including a substantial family/living room with lovely views over the gardens. Upstairs, the bedroom accommodation would suit a large family and a wing has been arranged as a separate annex with its own access, ideal for a nanny or dependent relative.

The traditional U-shaped garage and stable block is conveniently placed and would suit a car enthusiast and domestic equestrian use.

The land has separate access from the village lane and comprises two paddocks, one with a lake. In total the property extends to about 10.3 acres. Please note there is an Uplift Clause on a part of one of the fields.

Owing to our commitment to keep both our colleagues and clients safe during this period of recommended isolation, we also have many self-serve viewing options available to you. Please contact the office to see which self-serve options this property has to offer. These may include video guided walkthroughs, 360 virtual reality viewings and enhanced comprehensive photography.
