We are delighted to offer for sale this substantial Georgian town house in the heart of Wiveliscombe, yet enjoying excellent privacy from its surroundings.

One enters the property into a magnificent 25' hall with high ceilings, panel doors, tiled floors and seagrass matting. There is an excellent sitting room with fireplace and log burner, with French doors opening onto the south facing terrace and an additional drawing room to the side of this, again with French doors leading to the verandah and courtyard. There is a walk through larder and boiler room with access to a superb kitchen/dining room with a vaulted double height ceiling with lots of natural light and a galleried landing above. The kitchen is fitted with a range of appropriate units and Rayburn range. This is a sociable room ideal for family use.

At first floor level there is a master bedroom with en-suite shower room with south facing window, second double bedroom with south facing window overlooking the courtyard to the garden and hills beyond. An additional bedroom which has been converted into a very useful laundry room, a substantial dressing room and family bathroom. On the top floor there are three further bedrooms and a superb independent bathroom. All the rooms enjoy an excellent open outlook and views to the south of Wiveliscombe.

Attached to the kitchen/dining room and the galleried landing is a two storey barn conversion. On the ground floor there is a flexible living space (formerly used as a kitchen) and a ground floor cloakroom and independent access. At first floor level there is a large room with two windows overlooking the courtyard and Velux skylights above. This is currently used as a home office suite but could quite easily be adapted into a bathroom/shower room subject to some refurbishment.

Outside the property is a 60' courtyard immediately in front of the property with access back into The Square. This leads down to a terrace which again is south facing and gives access to the lawned garden with wall and fence boundaries.

AGENTS NOTE: The property has lapsed planning permission granted in November 2011 Application No. 49/11/0045 for a single detached dwelling to be built in that garden.

There is additional access to the free car park.

The former market town of Wiveliscombe has many shops and amenities including post office, doctors' surgery, vets, library, public houses, churches, community office and restaurants. There is a primary and secondary school with an excellent recent OFSTED report and further education colleges in Taunton. The recreation ground has tennis, football, cricket and rugby clubs and an open air heated swimming pool. There is public transport to many surrounding areas including Taunton 11 miles distant which also has excellent road (M5) and main line railway links. The beautiful surrounding countryside is easily accessible leading to the Brendon Hills, Quantocks and Exmoor National Park.
