About the property

Culverhead West is a handsome Edwardian attached house, forming part of a country house, which we understand was originally built for the Hancock family in 1908 and exhibits many features of the period. The current owners have skilfully and sympathetically remodelled and refurbished the accommodation, to create a well presented, versatile family home, with accommodation laid out over three floors. The property enjoys a stunning drawing room with wonderful views across the gardens to the valley beyond and has a handsome feature fireplace.

The property is approached over a shared driveway giving access to a parking area suitable for vehicles. The property is accessed through a wrought iron gate into a delightful gardens which sweep around to the side and rear of the property. The garden is laid principally to lawn with well stocked beds and mature shrubs and trees. There are delightful views to be enjoyed across the valley over open fields and the gardens have a good orientation and high degree of privacy. There is a generous sized lawned area, which we understand was a former tennis court and is perfect for recreational pursuits, with steps leading down to a lower lawned area, with raised planters and vegetables. There is an enclosed fowl area and a small copse and a high stone wall at the far end, with a covered lean-to providing a storage area.


Culverhead West is situated on the fringes of the town of Wiveliscombe, which offers a range of day to day amenities, including doctors' and dentists' surgeries, veterinary clinic, primary and secondary schools, shops, inns and garage. There is a selection of sports facilities, including a recreational ground with tennis, cricket and rugby clubs and an open air swimming pool is situated nearby. The property is surrounded by delightful countryside, within easy reach of Exmoor National Park and the Brendon and Quantock Hills. 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.


Leave Taunton along Staplegrove Road and at the Crosskeys Inn continue on the B3227 towards Milverton. On the outskirts of Milverton take the right hand turn at the roundabout signposted to Wiveliscombe. Proceed into Wiveliscombe, go straight over the first roundabout and again at the traffic lights onto the Bampton Road. The rugby club will be seen shortly on the left hand and immediately on the entrance to the club is a lodge house.

The entrance to Culverhead West is the next entrance off the road on the left hand side. Proceed up the drive and park on the gravelled area facing and enter the property through the wrought iron gate and up the steps.
