Bedrooms: 7
A fine Georgian manor house, Listed Grade II, meticulously restored occupying a private setting, yet close to the centre of Taunton. This beautifully presented family home lies beyond the classic Georgian facade where symmetrically placed sash windows and central front door and portico are surrounded by Roses, Wisteria and Boston Creeper. The origins of the manor house date back to the 17th century, where fine period features, including inglenook fireplaces, flagstone floors and ceiling beams confirm its age. More formal Georgian additions complete a fascinating and elegant interior, which in recent years has been meticulously extended and restored, now providing a spacious, yet comfortable family home. Great attention to detail has been the theme throughout the renovation, which also includes high quality fittings and fixtures and modern appliances.

The typical panelled front door and portico lead through to the reception hall, which is a room in itself, has a fine cut stone fireplace, a garden door and a turning staircase with handsome handrail and balustrades, which not only leads to the first floor but also leads down to the cellar, being particularly noteworthy with its exquisite cobbled floor, wooden wine racks and built in cupboards, which house the central heating boiler. The elegant and beautifully proportioned drawing room has a high period mantel piece, ceiling cornice and ceiling rose and three windows looking to the front of the house. The sitting room / library lies to the other side of the hall with bookcases and cut stone fireplace with open grate. An inner flagstone hall leads through to the original dining room, which is at present furnished as a further sitting room with large inglenook fireplace, flagstone floor, windows looking to the south and a door leading through to the kitchen. Beautifully fitted with a range of David Chapel design and built cabinets in a traditional style, with deep granite work surfaces and centred around the central island with built in cupboards and a small wine rack, there is also a four-oven gas fired AGA. A door leads out into the garden and a further door leads through to the laundry, which is particularly well fitted with a door to the outside, a door to the back staircase and a door through to a rear hall, where there is a traditional pantry and a cloakroom. The main turning staircase leads to the first floor where there are traditional shelves and storage cupboards and lead to three good sized principal bedrooms each having a dressing room and a bathroom. A curved inner landing with bookcases leads to the particularly spacious principal bedroom with a high cut stone fireplace, windows looking across to the gardens and one of the dressing rooms. A door leads down a short flight of stairs to the en suite bathroom with a freestanding copper bath, two granite hand basins set upon an oak chest of drawers, and a walk-in shower. A further well fitted dressing room leads out onto the rear landing. There is a mezzanine en suite bedroom together with the original smoking chamber. A further flight of stairs leads to the second floor. A suite of bedrooms has been created from the original attic space and offers rooms with huge character with exposed, restored beams and roof timbers and Heritage Velux windows. One particularly large room at the eastern end of the house, with a mezzanine den, leads through to a jack and jill shower room with walk-in shower, wc and two granite wash basins set upon an oak chest of drawers. A further bedroom leads through to a superb sitting / media room with vaulted ceiling with exposed beams and double doors leading down to the games / hobbies room and an office / study.
