Guide price

Bedrooms: 5
A beautiful Grade II Listed 16th Century house, together with outdoor pool, adaptable outbuilding and generous gardens and grounds in all about an acre. No onward chain.

(further land available by separate negotiation).

This delightful period property comes to the market for the first time in over 35 years and offers prospective purchasers the rare opportunity of acquiring a superb family home boasting a wealth of character. The property is believed to date back to the 16th Century and is of stone and cob elevations under a pitched thatched roof and is well worthy of its Grade II Listed status. In brief the accommodation comprises a cross passage hallway with flagstone flooring, original turning staircase and beautiful bevelled mirror (included in the sale). A door leads through to a boot room which in turn gives access to a courtyard. The principal reception rooms lie to the front where there is a formal dining room, a dual aspect living room and sitting room with impressive inglenook fireplace. A door from the sitting room leads to a generous kitchen/breakfast room fitted with a range of base units with rolled top work surfaces. Adjacent is a large games room/gym with en-suite. This could easily be converted to an annexe or a large kitchen/diner if you so wished subject to the necessary consents. A utility and study completes the ground floor accommodation. Upstairs are five double bedrooms with master en-suite, together with a family bathroom. The house has been well maintained over the years and benefits from the majority of the thatch replaced only last year.


Lying on the opposite side of the lane is a further 1.52 acres which is available by separate negotiation.


It is the vendor's intention to impose an overage clause on the orchard and the additional land whereby if within a period of 25 years change of use, planning consent is obtained for either residential or commercial use, then the vendors or their successors in title will be entitled to 20% of any resulting uplift in value.

The property is located in a private position on a no through road with little passing traffic. Langaller is a hamlet comprising mainly detached period properties and is located between Monkton Heathfield and Creech St Michael where local amenities are available including a Co-op, primary school, secondary school, Tacchi Morris Arts Centre, public house, village hall, vets and health care centre, amongst others. The County Town of Taunton is less than 3 miles to the Southwest offering all the services you would expect from a regional centre including Taunton Race Course, Somerset County Cricket Ground and three noted public schools. Langaller House is well placed for the commuter with access to the M5 (J25) 3 miles to the south and Taunton enjoys a direct line rail service to London Paddington. The Quantock Hills lie to the north, an area designated as being of Outstanding Natural Beauty and where many footpaths and bridleways can be enjoyed. The cities of Bristol and Exeter are both within 1 hours drive, both hosting international airports.

The gardens and grounds are a real selling point and can only be fully appreciated when viewed. Access is gained from the rear via a pair of stone pillars which lead to a cobbled courtyard with carport and mature flower borders. Here access can be gained to 'Summer Cottage', a two storey attached building currently used for storage but could convert to an annexe, Airbnb, study or similar, subject to the necessary consents. A side access leads to the side of the house where there is a fabulous outside swimming pool and large lawned gardens contained within mature hedgerow boundaries. Directly to the front of the house is a more formal lawned garden with gravelled path and further afield is a another area of lawn containing fruit trees referred to as the orchard. In all the property extends to approximately 0.93 acres as shown on the attached plan.
