A beautifully appointed detached house, set in gardens and grounds of about 1.5 acres, with substantial outbuildings providing garaging for 5 cars, set on the lower slopes of the Blackdown Hills.
This handsome individual detached house was built for the current owners in the late 1990's. It stands in gardens and grounds of about 1.5 acres which have been equally well maintained and they provide a wonderful setting for the house. Within the grounds can be found a substantial detached garage with workshop over. There is also a further double garage with home office above, ideal for those wishing to work from home. The house offers light and airy accommodation and the sitting room and kitchen/breakfast room have French doors opening directly to a large paved terrace which enjoys a southerly aspect and provides a wonderful sitting/dining out area. The property is well presented and is double glazed and has oil central heating with underfloor heating to the ground floor and conventional radiators to the first floor.
In summary the accommodation provides:
Entrance hall with guest cloakroom. The sitting room is a particularly light and airy room with a triple aspect and wood burning stove. The dining room is another well proportioned room with a double aspect and with French doors to side terrace. The kitchen/breakfast room is a great family sized room is well fitted and also has French doors to the terrace. Also on the ground floor can be found a very useful study and utility room.

The gardens and grounds extend to about 1.5 acres and have been well maintained. Adjacent to the house can be found a large paved terrace which enjoys a southerly aspect and provides a wonderful sun trap and dining out area. It is part walled and enjoys a good deal of privacy and seclusion. Steps rise to give access to an area of lawn and vegetable garden area. The remainder of the grounds are lawned and include a large pond which we are advised is about 6' max' in depth. The garage/workshop has its own separate access with a large hard standing area providing ample off road parking.
Higherlands occupies an attractive location on the lower slopes of the Blackdown Hills which have been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and they provide miles of footpaths and bridleways, ideal for those with walking and riding interests. Being elevated there are stunning views from the grounds over the Vale of Taunton and towards the Quantock Hills. Despite enjoying an attractive rural location, the property is by no means remote as the country town of Wellington is nearby offering excellent amenities including a Waitrose supermarket. Junction 26 of the M5 motorway can be found on the outskirts of the town and is about 1.5 miles from the property.
On reaching Ford Street from the Wellington direction, continue past the village green on your right and the property will be found shortly thereafter on the right hand side.
