This individually-designed, detached dwelling sits in a commanding location in the centre of Stoke St Mary, on the lower slopes of The Blackdown Hills and only three miles south of Taunton.

The two-bedroom property, named Firbank, has two-storeys with a garage and entrance hall on the ground floor. There is the potential to convert the garage into living accommodation to create a more substantial house, subject to the necessary consents.
