This substantial detached residence, named Little Gables, occupies a prime position in a desirable address in Taunton, close to the town centre and the nearby shops in French Weir.

Previously utilised as a bed and breakfast, the property has now evolved offering versatile living quarters across both the ground and first floor, presenting lucrative opportunities for additional income. The house comes with the ability to adapt the accommodation to create a one-to-two-bedroom bungalow-style annexe, creating an ideal environment for extended family members or to use as a versatile workspace.
