Full description

A splendidly situated 5 bedroom former Victorian rectory located in the sought after hamlet of Thorne St Margaret and enjoying far reaching views across the Taunton Vale to the Blackdown Hills and Wellington monument. The property affords spacious, light and well proportioned accommodation with a wealth of retained period features. It is set within attractive and private gardens with adjoining pasture paddocks and range of adaptable buildings. Although extending in total to about 26 acres the property is available with less land if desired.

The Old Vicarage, as shaded blue on the plan, is an attractive Victorian former rectory, occupying a prominent and peaceful south facing position and enjoying outstanding views across the rolling countryside to the Blackdown Hills. The former rectory is of good proportions and affords spacious accommodation in a stunning setting. It is complimented by attractive gardens, and adjoining paddocks, with the option of purchasing two further fields, as shaded pink on the plan, to the rear of the property which extend to about 10.33 acres. Immediately to the south lies Old Vicarage Farm, as shaded green on the plan, which comprises a number of traditional and modern farm buildings together with productive pasture land totaling about 14.34 acres.

The Old Vicarage occupies an attractive position in the pretty hamlet of Thorne St Margaret. The nearby villages of Langford Budville and Holywell Lake provide useful facilities; the former having a primary school whilst the nearby town of Wellington offers further schooling including the independent school of Wellington as well as a good range of usual services and amenities. The property is within easy reach of Taunton and Exeter with each affording the range of amenities and services expected of regional centres.

Exmoor National Park, the Blackdown Hills and the Quantock Hills as well as both the North and South Devon coasts provide a range of diverse scenery and the property is ideally located to take advantage of the wide range of recreational and sporting opportunities the region has to offer.

Communication links are good with the A38 providing easy access to the M5 motorway at Junctions 26 and 27. There is also a regular train service to London Paddington in just over 2 hours available from both Tiverton Parkway and Taunton stations. Exeter International Airport provides convenient flights to a wide range of destinations.
