A beautifully presented period house, Listed Grade II, of great charm and historic interest, set in the heart of a sought after Somerset village.

Poole House is undoubtedly one of the principal houses in the village with its Georgian façade and classical panelled front door with portico surround and stained glass window. The property is of particular historic interest and, as its names suggests, was once owned by the Poole family, Thomas Poole being a local farmer and tanner who had an interest in literature and who befriended Coleridge and Wordsworth, finding them houses to rent in the neighbourhood. The house has been well restored over the years and now provides a most comfortable and spacious house. Particularly good reception space includes a charming drawing room with wood burning stove, ceiling cornice and three large sash windows. A sitting room, which could also be used as a formal dining room, lies to the other side of the hall and adjoins the newly refitted kitchen with an Aga. There is also a library / reception room to the rear of the house, which joins a play room / studio. The bedrooms are all of a good size, the principal bedroom having an en suite marble bathroom. There are two further bedrooms, both en suite and two double bedrooms on the second floor with a family bathroom. Poole House is a large family house with the potential for a Bed & Breakfast business.
