Drayton Court is a Grade II listed former rectory for St Catherine’s Church in the pretty Somerset village of Drayton which was built in the early 19th century with some more recent editions.
The large reception hall leads to the three elegant main reception rooms – the drawing room, dining room and the study – as well as the walled garden outside. The kitchen/breakfast room has a useful sitting room adjoining, which leads through to the playroom, and the indoor swimming pool.
The first floor has a wide galleried landing which leads to the six bedrooms, including the master suite, and a concealed staircase to three attic rooms, which could also be converted into further accommodation.

Outside are the walled garden and a recently completed detached barn conversion with two bedrooms, sitting room and kitchen, and to the front a fully paved courtyard garden. There is also a recently resurfaced hard tennis court. The gardens include a main lawned area and a central rose garden, as well as a mature orchard, and parkland which could be divided into paddocks. A glazed verandah lies to the east, overlooking a Japanese garden with a Koi pond.
Drayton is a small village close to Curry Rivel and the small town of Langport, which has most everyday amenities, while Taunton and Yeovil provide a more comprehensive range of shops and services.
