Gardens and Grounds
The property is approached from the road through double five bar gates opening onto a tarmacadam driveway giving access to a large parking and turning area in front of the property and giving access to the detached double garage with twin up and over doors, electric light and power connected and side pedestrian door. To the rear of the garage is a very useful lean-to garden store with electric light.
The gardens are an undoubted feature of the property, have been equally well maintained and are stocked with an abundance of specimen shrubs and trees. To the front of the property can be found areas of lawn bounded by lavender and heather borders and the front elevation of the house is enhanced by a mature Wisteria and climbing roses. Beyond the driveway can be found a large expanse of lawn which adjoins open farmland and from here there are glorious views towards the Quantock Hills. This area of garden is stocked with an abundance of mature specimen trees, including copper beech, weeping willow, silver birch, horse chestnut, walnut and fruit trees. Here can be found a summerhouse affording lovely southerly views over the surrounding countryside. Kitchen garden area, aluminium framed greenhouse. From the driveway a gate opens to the side terrace providing an attractive sitting/dining out area and enjoying complete privacy. From here steps rise to give access to a further area of garden planted with numerous shrubs. The terrace continues to the rear of the property bounded by a rockery and lawn. The rear garden is enclosed by fencing and hedging and also enjoys a good deal of privacy and backs onto open farmland. Within the rear garden can be found a pond and former Victorian kennels now utilised as a chicken run.
Redstone is situated on the fringe of the popular village of Combe Florey. It stands adjacent to open farmland and from the garden there are beautiful views over the surrounding countryside and towards the Quantock Hills. Combe Florey is a popular village, with amenities to include pub, village hall and parish church. The larger village of Bishops Lydeard is about two miles away and here can be found further amenities to include shops, primary school and doctors surgery. Taunton, the County Town, is within easy travelling distance, being about six miles away and provides comprehensive facilities with, in addition to a good range of shops, excellent schools within both the state and independent sectors, a theatre, county cricket ground, racecourse and a main line rail link to London (Paddington). The M5 (J25) is accessed on the eastern side of town and close to this junction there is a large out of town shopping and leisure complex.
Leave Taunton in a north westerly direction on the A358 heading towards Williton and Minehead. Continue past the village of Bishops Lydeard and into the hamlet of East Combe. Proceed through East Combe heading towards Combe Florey. At the end of the straight between East Combe and Combe Florey and just before the road descends the hill and under the railway bridge, Redstone will be seen on the right hand side set back and above the roadway.
