Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A substantial and well presented detached pre-war house conveniently situated just South of the County Town of Taunton and standing within well tended gardens of about 1 acre.

Thornwick appears to date from the 1930s era although it has been subsequently extended some 20 years ago. Built of rendered elevations under plain tiled roofs, the property is typical of the era with good sized rooms and ceiling height benefitting also from modern double glazing and gas fired central heating. The present owners have maintained the property to a good standard and have modernised fixtures and fittings over the years to include the kitchen fittings and sanitary wear throughout. For many years a children's nursery was run from the property and this area (described as the games room/office within these particulars) is ideally suited for those who require additional reception space, well suited for perhaps a games room or equally for those who have work at home or dependent relatives. Thornwick offers great versatility and is set within well maintained grounds that are a particularly good size which form a delightful setting for this high calibre pre-war house.

Thornwick is situated in the Shoreditch district which lies just South of the County Town of Taunton and approximately 2 miles from the Town Centre. Local facilities are available at Mountfields about half a mile away including a mini supermarket whilst both Primary and Secondary schooling are also within easy striking distance. Taunton racecourse and Pickeridge golf course (18 holes) are also in the locality whilst there are numerous local foot paths that provide easy access into the surrounding countryside. The Blackdown Hills area of outstanding natural beauty is close at hand.

The property is approached by an Entrance gate that leads to a parking and turning area adjoining which is a detached single garage. A further pair of timber gates gives access to an inner courtyard area adjoining which is a detached double garage with light and power. The property stands within gardens and grounds of about an acre that are primarily arranged to the rear which are South and West facing and enjoy excellent views over adjoining farmland to the hills beyond. The gardens have been very well maintained providing a large area of lawn with rose, shrub and flower borders adjoining and incorporate a number of flowering trees, a further grassed area lying beyond again with flowering trees and well bordered by established Beech hedging. The gardens at present incorporate a large covered play area, well suited for those with young children or equally for a host of hobby purposes.
