The agent said: “This is a super opportunity to purchase this imposing former rectory in this sought after little hamlet, just four miles from Wellington. 

“Set in a total of 12.6 acres, The Old Vicarage has far reaching views across Taunton Vale towards the Blackdown Hills and the iconic Wellington Monument. 

“I particularly like the light,  well-proportioned rooms set off from the large inner hallway and landing, combined with the high ceilings, sash windows and other features so typical of this era. 

“And of course, the sun terrace and pool must be an amazing space for family and entertaining in the warmer months!”
