The house is believed to have been built in the early 1900s of an arts and crafts style, which incorporates many features typical of the period, including moulded skirting boards, original wooden banisters, and lead lattice windows. The property was for many years owned by the Somerset County Council and was used as offices but has now been reverted into a beautifully spacious family home.ACCOMMODATION
