This handsome modern family house occupies a quiet rural position in the pretty village of Sellicks Green on the southerly edge of Taunton.

The individually designed five-bedroom residence, named Wayside House, was built around seven years ago and has several energy-saving features, including a Mitsubishi air source heat pump providing central heating and hot water. The ground floor has underfloor heating, and the first floor has sophisticated wall radiators.

Inside, the house is presented in excellent decorative order and has a wealth of fine fixtures, fittings and finishing touches. On the ground floor, the main reception room has a feature fireplace with a Bath stone surround and a hearth on which stands an Aga wood-burning stove. This room is light and spacious with French doors to the south and a large window showcasing far-reaching views of the Quantocks.

There is a study and a family room/snug, which then leads into the beautifully fitted kitchen with high gloss cupboards, white work surfaces, a central island and a range of Neff appliances. From the dining area, bi-fold doors open to the outside terrace.

On the first floor, there are five bedrooms and a well-appointed family bathroom. The principal bedroom has a well-fitted dressing room and ensuite bathroom featuring a freestanding bath and walk-in shower. The guest bedroom also has a well-fitted ensuite bathroom.

Outside, the front garden features an area of lawn, mixed borders, a variety of specimen trees, and a low beech hedge allowing wonderful views over a natural meadow and distant views of the Quantocks. The rear garden is planted with a wealth of specimen trees and roses and has a deep-facing terrace that stretches across the rear of the house.

At the front, electronically operated gates open to the brick-paved driveway that provides ample space for parking and leads to the triple garage with a loft area and plenty of room for storage.
