Wilton House is probably one of Taunton's finest houses and has a long and interesting history. A carved stone above a doorway indicates that the property dates from 1705. It has a particularly handsome and striking main facade of beautiful symmetry with brick elevations under a predominatey slate roof with the elevations being enhanced by sash windows and is accordingly Grade II listed. The interior also has many interesting features typical of the period with the main reception rooms being of wonderful proportions with large fireplaces with timber over mantles, together with ornate ceiling cornicing. An impressive reception hall opens through to a staircase hall with an elegant balustraded staircase rising to the first floor. There are 3 large reception rooms, a kitchen, the usual domestic offices, 10 en-suite bedrooms, 2 further bedrooms and a 2 bedroom annexe.

The property, until recently, has been used as a residential care home and now offers the potential (subject to any necessary consents) to provide a substantial private dwelling or alternatively a mix of private and commercial usage.
