Bedrooms: 6
An attractively presented period house, Listed Grade II, of great charm and historic interest, set in the heart of a sought after Somerset village.

Thomas Poole House is undoubtedly one of the principal houses in the village with its Georgian facade and classical panelled front door with portico surround and stained-glass window. The property is of particular historic interest and carries a blue plaque commemorating Thomas Poole's friendship with the poets William Wordsworth and Samuel Taylor Coleridge who, we understand, were regular visitors to the house. Thomas Poole himself was a wealthy farmer and tanner still remembered today as a major local benefactor. His impressive bookroom with its barrel ceiling receives a mention in Pevsner. The house has been well restored over the years and now provides a most comfortable and spacious house. Particularly good reception space includes a charming drawing room with wood burning stove, ceiling cornice and three large sash windows. A sitting room, which could also be used as a formal dining room, lies to the other side of the hall and adjoins the refitted kitchen with an AGA. There is a further reception room/library to the rear of the house, which leads to an adaptable studio/events room. The bedrooms are all of a good size, the principal bedroom having an en suite marble bathroom. There are two further bedrooms, both en suite and two double bedrooms on the second floor with a family bathroom and dressing room.
