Chapel House originally dates, we understand, from the early 19th century and has been skilfully and sympathetically converted to create a beautiful family house, ensuring that the original features with stone mullion windows and ornate roof trusses have been retained and enhanced. The accommodation centres around a stunning sitting room with doors opening into the gardens and there is a beautifully appointed kitchen, with hardwood units and granite work surfaces. On the first floor there are four generous bedrooms with en suite facilities to two bedrooms and a family bathroom. The property has the benefit of central heating and double glazing.

Gardens and Grounds
The property is approached through wrought iron gates leading onto a paved driveway providing ample parking, giving access to the double garage (19 x 194) with double doors, power, light and loft room over, which is accessed by an external staircase. The gardens enjoy a high degree of privacy and stunning rural views and a southerly orientation. The gardens are laid principally to lawn with a range of shrubs and trees and a covered outside dining/sitting area and gazebo with hot tub.
Chapel House enjoys a delightful situation within the parish of Curry Mallet, which is a most attractive historic village and has a strong association with the Duchy. The village has good local amenities, including post office/general store, public house, village primary school, parish church and village hall. There is a network of footpaths and bridleways in the local area, across lovely Somerset scenery. Taunton, the County Town, provides a comprehensive range of recreational, scholastic and shopping facilities as well as a main line railway station and M5 Motorway interchange.
From Taunton proceed in a southerly direction on the A358 and after crossing over Thornfalcon traffic lights turn left signposted Hatch Beauchamp. Proceed into the village and turn left on a right hand bend immediately before the Hatch Inn and turn left signed to Curry Mallet. Follow this road for approximately 1½ miles to Popes Cross where there will be found a grass triangle and turn right at the triangle and first left into the driveway of the property.
