A most delightful 5 bedroomed character grade ll listed Somerset longhouse, now in need of renovations. Located on the northern edge of the County town.

Wellspring comprises a spacious detached Grade ll Listed cottage built of stone and cob with rendered elevations, set under a thatched roof and dates back, we understand, to the early 1700s. The property is now in need of a programme of improvements and updating throughout. Character features include exposed timbers and flagstone floors. The accommodation is surprisingly spacious with a shop and 2 offices located on the ground floor which could very easily be reverted back into the living accommodation. There is a lovely thatched canopy porch way which leads to the entrance hall with the main stairs to the first floor. The drawing room is a most delightful room with inglenook style fireplace and two windows, there is an inner lobby giving access to the outside and also access to the kitchen and large store room off. The breakfast room has a Rayburn range and also secondary stairs to the first floor. There is a rear hall with ground floor bathroom off and access to two useful store rooms, one having an access door to the garden. On the first floor there is a long landing with the main bedroom having an en suite shower room, there are four further bedrooms, all of a good size.

The property is located in a prominent corner location at the junction of Kingston Road and Wellspring Road. Local amenities are available close by with Taunton being easily accessible providing its extensive range of facilities. The town also provides a main line city rail link, London Paddington being about 2 hours and the M5 at junction 25 Blackbrook. The property is also well placed, being on the northern edge of the town, for easy access to the Quantock Hills which are designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty, with he northern coastline and Exmoor National Park also readily available.

To the front of the property there is a brick boundary wall with entrance pillars and gateway leading into the gardens which are well established and form a most delightful feature of the property.
