Windflower occupies a stunning elevated position with views across the village, Vale of Taunton, and Blackdown Hills. West Monkton is highly regarded and lies at the foot of the Quantock Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with various footpaths and bridleways for those interested in walking and riding. The village is within a conservation area and features a parish church and a popular village pub.

The county town of Taunton lies to the southwest, offering a wider range of shopping, leisure, and educational facilities. There are three well-known independent schools and excellent communication links to the rest of the country, including a mainline railway station with links to London Paddington and access to the M5 motorway via Junction 25.


Windflower is a delightful detached family home situated in an elevated position, out of sight from the village lane below. It is set in landscaped gardens on the edge of the village, enjoying south-facing views. Built in 2002, the house features an attractive façade with partially faced local red sandstone and rendered elevations under a slate roof.


The house features a spacious open porch that leads into the reception hall. There are four reception rooms in total, with all but the study facing south, offering wonderful views across the gardens. The sitting room is centred around a large open fireplace with a fitted wood-burning stove and has two sets of French doors that open onto the terrace and garden. The dining room has Karndean flooring and opens onto the kitchen, creating a large single room ideal for entertaining. The kitchen is fitted with a range of matching wall and base units with grey granite work surfaces and a range of integrated appliances, including twin ovens. There is also a large, built-in wine fridge. Adjacent to the kitchen is the utility room, with matching wall and base units, and doors providing access to the double garage, driveway, and rear garden.

Two of the five bedrooms on the first floor have en-suite bathroom/shower rooms, whilst the remaining three bedrooms share the family bath and shower room. Currently, the two attic rooms serve as a home office and games room/gym. The principal suite is a light and spacious, including a large en-suite with a Velux skylight and two individually fitted walk-in wardrobes, complete with shelving and hanging space.


The property is accessed via electrically operated gates that open onto a sweeping driveway leading up to the double garage, with ample parking and a turning area. The surrounding gardens are well-established and beautifully maintained, predominantly laid to lawn. There are several planted herbaceous borders and an established hedge at the rear, providing a high degree of privacy. To one side of the property is a large terrace area that enjoys the evening sun, and the garden is equipped with an automatic watering system throughout. At the rear, in a private and sheltered location, is the swimming pool. The heating and exchange unit connects to a gas central heating boiler. The swimming pool is fully lined and has a retractable trip-pull cover integrated into the terrace, along with an automatic chlorine feeder. There is a separate plant room housing the equipment.


Proceed into the village of West Monkton and, passing the Italian restaurant on the left-hand side, continue around the bend/triangle. The gardens can be found on the left. Follow the private entrance, and Windflower is the first of two properties.
