About This Property

A landmark Grade II Listed Town House affording spacious and very attractive accommodation occupying a superb and central location by St Mary’s Church.

The property is reputed to date from 1308 and has always been in Church use in that time – this is the first occasion it has come to the open market for sale! The property has been much altered over the centuries and most of the existing house appears to date from the 16th and 17th centuries with later, mainly Victorian, additions including an excellent rear dining room. The property is of an appealing two storey design built of mellow brick elevations under clay plain tiled roofs. It is of an ‘L’ shape with a double pitch roof and provides 3 reception rooms approached from an excellent hallway together with a family kitchen/breakfast room with additional utility and store rooms beyond at ground and first floor level, which would offer potential for an annexe or similar, subject to planning consents. 5 bedrooms are arranged on the first floor with 2 bathrooms. The house is set within charming, largely walled gardens, which despite its central location afford good privacy. Parking is provided from a shared driveway approached from Whirligig Lane next to the recently completed replacement Vicarage.

This is an intriguing and most attractive property, which now requires a programme of improvements and would appear to offer a range of varied opportunities to prospective buyers.

The property occupies a unique central location and adjoins the churchyard of St Mary’s, the principal Church of Taunton – a magnificent Church with the tallest Church tower within Somerset. Although very centrally situated within the town, it enjoys a good degree of privacy although obviously all of the towns facilities are immediately at hand. Taunton is the administrative head quarters for the County and is a thriving centre and offers a wide range of shopping, recreational and scholastic facilities including 3 noted public schools. The town enjoys good communication links with the rest of the UK with a fast rail link to London
Paddington with many services in under 2 hours and with an M5 interchange (junction 25). The town is a thriving and expanding business centre within the south west with strengthening growth prospects over the next 20 years. St Mary’s Vicarage stands within a strong conservation area not only including the Church but adjoining the Church Square and Hammet Street which is one of the best preserved Georgian facades within the area.

The Vicarage is set within largely walled gardens that are primarily dedicated to lawn at the present time with planted shrub borders in addition. There is a large and attractive Mulberry tree within the grounds. Parking arrangements are provided from a private driveway approached from Whirligig Lane with provision for several vehicles. Please Note: The garage, which adjoins The Vicarage to the East, is not included within the sale, as this is being retained by the Church and will be given to the Parish for their use.
