A two-bedroom ground-floor flat and the four-bedroom coach house provide additional accommodation, while the gardens include the walled garden/orchard and a pretty stream.

An indoor tennis court lies within a large general purpose building, but has also been an indoor riding school.

Aside from the landscaped gardens, the property extends to around 73 acres of pasture land which provides privacy but is also ideal for equestrian enterprises.

Briscoe House occupies an enviable position on the western edge of the Blackdown Hills, an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Wellington is two miles and Taunton is seven miles for local amenities and there are very good local schools.

The guide price is £2.5m. For further information please contact Knight Frank on 01392 848 823.
