The property is situated in stunning landscaped gardens close to the centre of the County Town of Taunton. Taunton is a delightful traditional English market town with a vibrant centre. The town gets its name from the river Tone that runs through it and is nestled in the Vale of Taunton, which comprises the Quantock Hills, Blackdown Hills and Brendon Hills, offering a wealth of idyllic walks and boating on the canal. There is a County Cricket Club and numerous golf courses, bowls and horse racing. Taunton has a wide range shops including many top brand names and several independent retailers. There is also a popular weekly farmers market, The Brewhouse Theatre and an arts centre, which is a popular creative hub in the region with a range of performances and exhibitions. Vivary Park also offers free weekly concerts in the band stand, plus many other events.

The property has been sympathetically and intelligently designed and is one of 14 freehold homes at Cedar Gardens. Number 7 provides generous accommodation with excellent energy efficiency. The design philosophy within number 7 was to create bright rooms, which have a fresh internal feel with generous proportions. The accommodation is arranged over two floors with potential to create a ground floor bedroom with en suite fitted for ease if desired. The property is well insulated throughout, with easily controlled underfloor heating across the entire ground floor, traditional radiators on the first floor and highly efficient condensing boilers. Cedar Gardens was developed by Blue Cedar Homes. There is an estate manager employed by the Blue Cedar Homes Management Company who is responsible for a range of services including estate maintenance, gardening, external window cleaning, periodic external building redecoration, waste management, general security and well being of the scheme. These tasks are covered within the annual service charge.

The accommodation as mentioned is arranged over two floors and includes a front door to an open entrance hallway with turning staircase to the first floor. There is a door to a downstairs storage cupboard and a downstairs shower room. The kitchen is fitted by Mayflower Kitchens and includes a range of matching wall and base units with integrated appliances including a fridge/freezer, dishwasher and Neff oven. There are granite work surfaces with a one and a half bowl sink unit, mixer tap, four ring hob with extractor hood over, tiled floor and a front aspect window. The sitting room has double doors leading through to the conservatory with a wooden floor and doors to the garden. There is a squared archway leading through to the dining room, which has been specifically designed to be blocked off to create a third bedroom if required, with window over looking the side garden.
On the first floor there is a landing with electronically operated Velux windows and doors to the bedrooms. The master bedroom has dual aspect windows and built in wardrobes with a shelf and hanging space. There is a door to a Jack and Jill bathroom, which is fitted with a double ended bath, wash basin, WC with enclosed cistern, enclosed tiled shower cubicle and a door to a built in storage cupboard housing the boiler. The second bedroom also has a built in wardrobe, window to side and there is a door to the eaves storage.

There is a communal entrance with a brick paved driveway providing access to a communal garage, which is open plan and has a door to an attached store to the rear. A path leads down to the house where there is an area of garden, which is laid to lawn with deep planted herbaceous borders and a number of mature beech trees alongside other specimen shrubs and plants. The garden is enclosed by wooden fencing panels.

From the centre of Taunton, proceed along Corporation Street in a southerly direction, passing County Hall on the left. After filtering off right continue on Compass Hill and take the first left hand entrance to Cedar Gardens.

Please note that we understand the Service Charges to be just under £2000 per year, this includes the lawns being mowed and that the Council Tax is approximately £3000 per year.
