'One of finest houses in Somerset' for sale through Jackson Stops & Staff, Taunton
The Taunton office of Jackson Stops & Staff is pleased to announce the sale of Crowcombe Court, a historic Grade I Listed property that offers an unusually flexible range of uses, from magnificent family home to lifestyle business or commercial venture. Crowcombe Court is a Georgian mansion described by Pevsner as the finest house of its date in Somerset, south of the Bath area. Built in the 1730s, the building retains most of its important historic features, including superb plasterwork, chimneypieces and impressive original staircases. The property comprises the entire principal house, including the quadrant links to the original service wings, now in separate residential ownership, that lie to the west. To the south, east and north the property overlooks registered historic parkland, offering a wonderful rural setting, yet it is only about 200 metres from the centre of Crowcombe village. Over the past ten years, the house has been carefully conserved and brought back to its original magnificence as a substantial private dwelling. The owners have also hosted weddings and receptions here since 2004, and the property has both a civil marriage venue licence and a premises licence covering sales of alcohol, entertainment and other licensed activities. Planning consent has now been obtained for broader business use as a wedding, function, conference or training venue with overnight accommodation, a B&B, guest house or private hotel, or for self-catering or catered house party rentals. In all there are about 7 acres, including walled and woodland gardens for restoration. Guide price is 2m. For more information click here or call 01823 325144.
