This substantial and handsome detached house offers spacious, light and airy accommodation which has been designed to take further advantage of the wonderful setting with all the main reception rooms enjoying glorious southerly views over the garden and the surrounding countryside.

They enjoy a wonderful southerly orientation and beautiful views over the surrounding countryside.

There is an ornamental pond and former tennis court now requiring refurbishment
Sanford House occupies a glorious elevated position with no immediate neighbours, standing adjacent to Duchy farm land and with far reaching southerly views. Whilst having a Wrantage address, the property is situated approximately midway between this village and Curry Mallet. Wrantage has a pub, whilst Curry Mallet provides amenities to include a village shop, primary school and pub. Despite enjoying a glorious rural location, the property is by no means remotely situated as the large country town of Langport is about six miles away with supermarket and an interesting collection of independent shops, whilst Taunton, the county town, and the M5 Motorway are about five miles away.
Leave Taunton in a south easterly direction on the A358 heading towards Ilminster. At the Thornfalcon traffic lights turn left onto the A378 towards Langport. Continue into the hamlet of Wrantage passing the Far Canal pub and St Giles Animal Centre on the left hand side and take the next right hand turning into Rock Hill towards Curry Mallet. On cresting the hill at the staggered crossroad, turn left and continue for approximately 0.5 mile where Sanford House will be found on the right hand side.
