The Court is a substantial detached property on the edge of the village of Hallatrow in Somerset. This house thought to have been constructed for a local landowner back in the Stuart era and there have been several additions since that time.
The house also has some fascinating period features including a nineteenth century stone porch with Tuscan Doric piers and round arched frieze which adds to the southern face of the property. The accommodation is generous and spread over three floors, with large room sizes and a particularly notable first-floor drawing room.
The Court has been in the same family since 1974 and during that time was well maintained, although would now benefit from some updating. ‘This is the ideal opportunity for a family to establish themselves in this popular hamlet for generations to come,’ says agent Carter Jonas. ‘The house has enjoyed many years of family life and indeed has been known as the venue for the local village fête from time to time.’
