This substantial semi-detached Victorian town house offers particularly spacious and meticulously presented accommodation arranged over four floors. It exhibits many wonderful features typical of the period including large reception rooms with high ceilings and with many of the rooms having ornate plaster work, good quality carpentry and Victorian fireplaces.
The accommodation includes three large reception rooms with an elegant drawing room overlooking the front garden whilst the well fitted kitchen and dining room overlook the rear garden.

South Road is a sought after address, which as its name implies, can be found on the southern side of Taunton. It is primarily a residential area which has largely developed since Victorian times so that there is now an interesting variety of good quality houses dating from that era. Large, well established trees which line much of the road, give the area an air of maturity. The town centre is about one mile away and provides comprehensive facilities with recreational, scholastic and shopping facilities, as well as a main line railway and an M5 Motorway interchange.
