THIS is a fine Georgian manor house, Listed Grade II, meticulously restored occupying a private setting, yet close to the centre of Taunton.

The beautifully presented family home lies beyond the classic Georgian facade where symmetrically placed sash windows and central front door 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 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.

The kitchen is 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.

The main turning staircase leads to the first floor where there are three good sized principal bedrooms each having a dressing room and a bathroom.

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.

Then a further bedroom leads through to a superb sitting/media room with vaulted ceiling with exposed beams.

In total the property has seven bedrooms, five bathrooms, an all weather tennis court, a pool house and heated pool, a jetty onto the canal and gardens set over roughly 4 acres.
