A beautifully presented regency house with ancillary accommodation found in a highly convenient setting close to Taunton. In all about 2.65 acres.

Hillbrook House is a particularly handsome and elegant regency country house and is a fine example of regency architecture. Typical of the period, the front façade has two square bays and elegant entrance porch with steps up to the front door. The house has been well-maintained over the years, with modern day fashions and provides beautifully decorated, elegant reception rooms. A reception hall with turning staircase gives access to the double drawing room with typical regency arch and marble fireplace. A good size dining room with a large bay window leads into the sitting room. The Mark Wilkinson kitchen provides the focal point of the house and is beautifully fitted including a four oven gas fired Aga. The bedrooms are all of good size, the principal bedroom having an en-suite and dressing room and there is a further guest room with an en-suite shower room. An air conditioning system has been installed. Ancillary accommodation provides excellent space for a dependant relative and can be totally self-contained.

A long private carriage drive leads up to the house and opens out into a large balustraded parking area in front of the house. A separate gate at the head of the drive leads to the rear of the property and opens out into a paved courtyard leading to the annexe cottage and a three bay open fronted garage. A small arboretum lies to the front of the house providing protection and includes a variety of specimen well-chosen trees which are accompanied by a magnificent holm oak and magnolia. A deep terrace stretches across the west side of Hillbrook and French doors open out from the kitchen and sitting room which enjoy glorious views up to the Blackdown Hills and Wellington Monument. A traditional walled garden lies to the east and is lawned with deep herbaceous borders. A rose covered gazebo provides a lovely place to sit. A gate leads through to a wildlife pond (created from an original swimming pool) which is netted and has a summerhouse. An adjoining area of kitchen garden has a greenhouse and a quaint, hexagonal garden shed as well as a soft fruit cage with mature raspberries and established fig trees. The gardens stretch out the north of the property and include an established orchard area with both cooking and eating apples and plumbs. A greenhouse and the all-weather tennis court is also found to the north of the property. Other features include an aluminium framed greenhouse and a stone barn providing garaging and workshop space with security roller door.
