The property has the benefit of the communal gardens, which are extensive and stocked with an abundance of mature shrubs and trees, including a magnificent cedar tree. The gardens also include a wooded area with streams. Situated within the main house are extensive cellars, providing very useful communal storage space.
The property occupies a prominent situation some three miles from the county town and enjoying a slightly elevated location with excellent views. Local facilities are available at Monkton Heathfield in particular including primary and secondary schooling whilst Taunton is an easy drive some 10 minutes away where a wide range of shopping, recreational and scholastic facilities will be found together with excellent communication links with the rest of the UK with main line rail station to London and M5 interchange (junction 25). The Quantock Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty are within easy striking distance to the North where a host of fine footpaths provide easy access into this lovely area of countryside.
