A striking residence occupying one of the most sought after locations in the town together with annexe, garage and beautiful well maintained gardens enjoying southerly views towards the Blackdown Hills.

Greenlands is a fine example of 1930's architecture and is a building of grace, stature and beauty. The accommodation, which benefits from gas fired central heating and double glazing, retains many of the original features such as parquet flooring, servant's bells and original joinery and tiles. The rooms are well proportioned with generous ceiling heights and substantial bay windows. In brief, the accommodation includes a galleried reception hall, two spacious reception rooms both with open fire places and bay windows overlooking the south facing gardens, a well equipped kitchen/breakfast room and separate dining room. Also, on this floor is a conservatory with wood-burning stove, utility, two toilets and various cupboards/storage options. On the first floor are four double bedrooms with two en-suites and a family bathroom. Three of the bedrooms enjoy south facing bay windows with far reaching views towards the Blackdown Hills in the distance. In addition to the main house is an annexe ideal for a B&B or to accommodate an elderly relative.

The property has been designed to take full advantage of the wonderful setting with the main rooms enjoying a wonderful southerly orientation with views of the Blackdown Hills. Wellesley Park is a particularly sought after area in the southern fringe of the town and is within walking distance of the town centre and Wellington School. Wellington offers a wide range of independently run shops and larger national stores including a Waitrose supermarket. The prestigious Wellington School and Wellesley Park Primary School are both situated just a short stroll from the property and Taunton the county town, with its main line rail link providing fast and convenient access to London Paddington, lies approximately six miles to the east. The property is also well placed for the commuter with Junction 26 of the M5 Motorway also being situated on the fringe of the town. The cities of Exeter and Bristol, both hosting international airports, are within an hour's drive .

The property is approached from the public highway via a double five bar gate opening on to a brick paved driveway giving access to the integral garage with timber doors, fitted shelving, electric light, power and steps to extensive storage above. A further pedestrian gate with paved path gives access to the front door and the property is set back from the road side behind hedging and iron railings with an area of lawn and shrub borders. Paths to either side of the property give access to the rear which enjoys a wonderful southerly orientation and a high level of privacy being enclosed by mature hedging and panel fencing. Paths to either side of the property can give access to the rear, where the very private south facing gardens enjoy views towards the Blackdown Hills and Wellington Monument. Adjoining the house is a paved terrace providing an attractive outside dining area ideal for al fresco dining and summer entertaining as well as a underground bomb shelter currently used for storage. Well kept flower beds and shrub borders adjoin the terrace and steps descend to the remainder of the garden which is predominantly lawned with central paved pathway and further paved terrace bounded by shrubs and trees providing another sitting out area. To the side lies a productive kitchen garden with raised beds, fruit garden and aluminium framed greenhouse. In all the property extends to just under 1/2 acre.
