Broadleas sits well within the plot and accordingly enjoys a good deal of privacy. The property is approached from the road through double five barred gates opening onto a circular gravelled driveway, providing ample parking and turning space and giving access to the detached double garage. The property is set back from the road way and enjoys a good deal of privacy being screened by high hedging. Gates to either side of the property give access to the rear garden, comprising a large expanse of lawn with fruit trees and paved path running all the way around the edge of the house. On the west side of the property there is a large terrace with water feature and BBQ stand. On the west side of the garden can be found a paddock with a separate vehicular access from the driveway. On the east side of the property can be found a separate paddock/orchard with numerous fruit trees. Adjacent to the paddock there is a substantial barn/store providing garaging and general storage. This building has its own separate access from the road and subject to the usual consents provides the potential to provide a separate annexe if so required. There is also a substantial glass house.
In all the grounds extend to about 2.44 acres.
Broadleas occupies an extremely convenient location, being only a short drive from the centre of Taunton. Haydon is small hamlet located on the Eastern fringes of Taunton and close to the popular village of Stoke St Mary. This is a particularly sought after village offering a thriving community with many local clubs and organisations and amenities to include a pub and village hall. Haydon offers the dual benefits of an attractive rural community, but is only about two miles from Taunton town centre and is also readily accessible to junction 25 of the M5 motorway
Leave Taunton in a south-easterly direction on Haydon Lane and on reaching the hamlet of Haydon Broadleas will be found on the left hand side, set behind a high hedge.
