Property description

Tenure: Freehold

The private tree lined drive sweeps through the parkland with the imposing Georgian façade of the house creating a magnificent and welcoming first impression. The house is Grade II listed and believed to date from around 1800. Marsh House has been brought firmly into the 21st century thanks to an extensive and sympathetic renovation that combines the elegant original features with a practical and manageable layout, ideal for family life. A central entrance hall leads to the well-proportioned reception rooms all with high ceilings and sash windows. The drawing room is of particular note, a superb entertaining space with a triple aspect and French doors leading to the terrace. A further sitting room sits on the opposite side of the entrance hall beyond which is a large and light home office with far reaching views.

The Mark Wilkinson kitchen forms the heart of the home, and is beautifully fitted with a four oven AGA, walk in pantry and central island. This part of the house has been beautifully designed, linking to an orangery with French doors out to the terrace, seamlessly linking the interior and exterior. The semi open plan layout and superb flow of rooms on the ground floor ensure Marsh House is an ideal family home. The extensive cellar has been refurbished and provides ample space for wine storage as well as a media room and hobbies room.

The superb attention to detail in the refurbishment continues to the first floor where a large landing area leads to the bedroom accommodation. The views are superb and the proportions match those of the ground floor rooms. The principal bedroom is particularly impressive, with a delightful outlook over the gardens and a stunning en suite bathroom. There are a further four bedrooms, two of which have en suite shower rooms as well as a family bathroom, all finished to an exceptional standard.

The Coach House provides ancillary accommodation in the form of three bedrooms, one of which has an en suite shower room. There is a separate bathroom and a kitchen, reception room / garden room.

The indoor heated swimming pool sits within the attractive pool house with vaulted ceiling, shower room, sauna and cloak room.

The mature and established parkland gardens offer an abundance of impressive trees including a cherry tree lined drive and a magnificent Copper Beech. The drive leads to a gravelled parking and turning area in front of the double garage with electronic up and over doors. A large swathe of lawn sweeps around the front of the house and a path leads to a terraced area on the south side of the house, ideal for The Coach House entertaining and with views over the paddock.

Marsh House sits at the end of a long private tree lined drive on the edge of the highly sought after village of Kingston St Mary. The elevated position gives views over its own parkland to the rolling countryside of the Quantock Hills in the distance.

Kingston St Mary sits in the foothills of the Quantock Hills AONB about 2 miles from the county town of Taunton which is well known for the quality of its schooling, with Kings Hall (1 mile from Marsh House), Kings College, Queens College and Taunton School all situated within the town. Slightly further afield but still within easy reach are Wellington School, Blundell's in Tiverton and Millfield.
