Superb setting for imaginative design

Mulberry House occupies an enviable position on the eastern slopes of the Quantock Hills, enjoying some superb views to the east and south.

The house has been imaginatively converted from a range of stone field barns, once belonging to the Halswell Estate, the design allowing every opportunity to benefit from the south-facing setting.

The layout provides excellent reception space including a marble-floored reception /dining hall, which leads into a beautifully light drawing room, a superbly-fitted kitchen with breakfast area enjoying the glorious views and a staircase which leads down to a sitting / media room.

No expense has been spared in the bathrooms including a particularly impressive en-suite principal bathroom and guest suite, again with shower room and dressing room. There are two further bedrooms sharing a Jack & Jill bathroom.

Great care has been taken over the energy efficiency of the property with under floor heating throughout, although the principal bedroom has a hot/cold air conditioning system. It is the setting of Mulberry House which is so special.

A pillared entrance leads into the gravelled drive, which sweeps around to the front of the house

and provides parking. Lawned gardens sweep up to the north and are planted with young specimen trees including a mulberry, weeping willow, magnolia and holly. A bed of lavender lies along the front elevation. The lawned gardens extend round to the west and open out where the main gardens slope down to the south, where there is a terrace immediately in front of the drawing room and a lower terrace enjoys all available sunshine facing due south. The gardens lead down to a decking area together with a garden store. A more

informal area of garden is post and railed and lies to the east and could easily provide a small paddock. In

all the grounds amount to about 2.031 Acres (0.822 Hectare).

Jackson-Stops &Staff (01823 325144) is marketing the property with a guide price of £995,000
