Curland House was constructed approximately 10 years ago and is of an attractive two story design built of rendered elevations on a stone plinth with bath stone detailing and set under a slate roof. Providing spacious and free-flowing living accommodation, the property features some lovely reception areas including a good sized principal living room with an adjoining large kitchen/breakfast room/garden room/conservatory which forms the focal point of daily living and which takes full advantage of the amazing views. Direct access is provided from the conservatory to the large adjoining terrace area, which also enjoys the lovely views. There are four bedrooms on the first floor, two of which have en suite facilities and the master bedroom also has a lovely roof balcony. The quality of construction and attention to detail such as the Lutron Lighting is evident throughout Curland House, making a very appealing and well-presented property.

Curland House sits within an elevated location within the Blackdown Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) some 7 miles to the south of the county town of Taunton and enjoying simply stunning views over the surrounding countryside. The views probably stretch some 35 – 40miles, range through 180 degrees and must be among the best in Somerset. M Communication links are excellent with the M5 motorway at Taunton (junction 25) providing very good access to Bristol, Exeter and the national motorway network. Rail services operate from Taunton Parkway direct to London Paddington with the fastest trains taking circa 1 hour and 40 minutes. Exeter Airport has a growing number of flights to national and international destinations including a direct service to London City Airport. The county town of Taunton is 7 miles away and provides comprehensive shopping and recreational facilities consistent with a town of this size. The University and Cathedral City of Exeter is well known as the major regional centre for the whole of the South West Region and has an extensive range of shops, restaurants and theatres. Somerset has an outstanding number of state and private schools and Curland House is ideally placed to access the majority of them. There is a range of both primary and secondary schools nearby with excellent independent schools in Taunton (Kings and Queens Colleges, Taunton School and King's Hall Preparatory School) There is also Wellington School in Wellington and Blundells is just outside Tiverton. For the sporting and recreational enthusiasts, the opportunities are endless. There is excellent walking, riding and cycling in the Blackdown Hills and there are a number of golf courses in the area. There is racing at Taunton, Exeter and Newton Abbot and the Jurassic Coast is not far away with a variety of sailing and beach opportunities. Taunton is the home of Somerset County Cricket and Exeter is the home of the Premiership Rugby side The Exeter Chiefs. The Quantock Hills and the Exmoor National Park are also within easy reach.

The property is approached via a pair of hardwood electrically operated gates on stone piers. A gravelled driveway leads to a large parking area with space for multiple vehicles. A detached stone built double garage sits close to the house with light and power provided and with a side timber storage shed. Gardens surround the house on three sides and are largely dedicated to lawn. There is a generous stone terrace on the western side and takes full advantage of the views and the evening sun. Two attractive ornamental ponds adjoin the terrace area with waterfall features. A further small wildlife pond is on the eastern side in all set in around 4.49 acres.

AGENTS NOTE: Immediately beyond the gardens are two paddocks with separate access and bounded by well-established hedges and a number of mature trees. These paddocks are well-suited for those who wish to keep horses, ponies, a few stock or simply for amenity purposes. The current owners let the grazing to local farmers and this may be continued if desired. This is available by separate negotiation.
