Full description

Tenure: Freehold

An impressive Georgian village house with adjoining annexe set within highly attractive established grounds in a sought after edge of town location.

Taunton Centre 2 Miles

Steading Hay would appear to date from the Regency era and has a typical double fronted facade with attractive veranda with the benefit of an adjoining wing currently providing a two bedroomed annexe but with further potential for the conversion of additional space into domestic accommodation if so desired. Links exist at both the ground and first floor level allowing for incorporation into the main house if desired or equally for retention of the space for a dependant relative or for additional income according the buyers needs. The principal house offers extremely elegant living accommodation with three good sized reception rooms centred around an elegant stair case and unusually with the benefit of lift access as well if needed. Four double bedrooms are present at first floor level with two bathrooms and a separate shower room. In addition to the domestic wings that adjoin, there is a useful range of outbuildings providing garaging and storage discretely arranged around a rear courtyard. The gardens are stunning, the whole property extending to just under an acre and having been particularly well tended by the owners. Unusually for a property in a built environment, a good deal of privacy and seclusion is present, the gardens affording generous areas of lawn with well stocked rose and shrub borders as well as plenty of space for children to play. A good sized swimming pool and walled vegetable garden complete the picture and form a delightful setting for this premier village house.

It is extremely unusual for properties of this quality to become available in the county town and Steading Hay is recommended to the most discerning of buyers.

Staplegrove is widely regarded as one of the premier addresses of the county town of Taunton lying about two miles to the northwest of the town centre and very well placed for ease of access to all quarters. The Somerset Nuffield Hospital and Musgrove Park Hospital are both within easy striking distance as is Taunton School, one of Taunton's three public schools each providing co-educational facilities from 5 - 18. Taunton is the administrative headquarters for its county and has representation by most national retailers together with excellent sporting and recreational facilities. The town enjoys excellent communication links with the rest of the UK with fast rail link to London Paddington and M5 interchange (junction 25).

The Quantock Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is within 3 miles to the north where a wide array of both foot and bridal paths will be found. Staplegrove itself retains much of its original village charm and character and benefits from a well stocked convenience store and excellent parish church.
