An attractive detached barn conversion set within grounds of about 2.67 acres in an attractive location on the western side of Taunton Vale.

Goldcleeve comprises a barn conversion set in about 2.67 acres. The house was converted some 35 years ago and was run for many years as a nursery. Built of attractive local sandstone elevations under tiled roofs, it is arranged on something of an 'upside down' basis to take into account the excellent southerly views that are afforded. The rooms are of a good size with one en suite bedroom provided at first floor level (this could also be used as an additional reception room) with 3 / 4 others below according to buyers needs. There is a good sized main reception room with adjoining kitchen/breakfast room and a large conservatory. The house is set within lovely, well tended gardens and a paddock lies beyond well suited for a variety of amenity uses or for a pony paddock if desired. The property is an excellent example of its type and given its quality location on the western edge of the Vale of Taunton, it comes highly recommended by the sole agents.

The property is situated some 6 miles to the west of the county town of Taunton and is less than 1 mile from the village centre of Milverton which is regarded as one of the premier addresses within the district. Local facilities include primary schooling, doctors surgery, convenience store and pub whilst Taunton is readily accessible via the nearby B3227 where a wide range of shopping, recreational and scholastic facilities will be found including three noted independent schools, sixth form college and major hospital. The town of Wellington is somewhat closer about 4 miles away which also offers a good range of amenities. The surrounding district is one of high quality, attractive countryside and there are numerous local footpaths that provide easy access to the adjoining area. Both Exmoor National Park and the Brendon Hills are within easy striking distance where a variety of sporting pursuits may be enjoyed. Taunton enjoys excellent communication links to the rest of the UK with fast rail service to London Paddington and M5 interchange (Junction 25). The M5 may also be joined at Wellington (Junction 26). Goldcleeve is set a little distance from the nearby road enjoying a slightly elevated situation with good privacy and far reaching views.

Goldcleeve is accessed from the adjoining lane which leads to good sized hard standing and turning area. Goldcleeve stands within large and well tended gardens that provide informal areas of lawn interspersed with a variety of flowering trees and shrubs and is set within well established boundaries. Beyond the gardens is a separately fenced off paddock well suited for ponies. Adjacent to the paddock is an orchard of twenty mixed fruit trees with a field beyond being occasionally used for horses. There is a good access track leading down to the paddock and orchard area from the entrance. In all the property extends to about 2.67 acres.
