Four Stunning Million Pound Mansions in Somerset Market
Somerset is quickly becoming a retreat for many celebrities and wealthy people. With miles of stunning coastline and countryside, it’s not hard to see why.
From Bath to Exmoor, a wide variety of properties can be found, from multi-million pound urban townhouses to mega-mansions in areas of mostly untouched land. But the question remains, which areas of Somerset are home to the most expensive and sought-after properties?
With four properties currently on the market at over £4,000,000, potential buyers are most likely a select few of the population. Although some also require a certain taste.

This nine-bedroom home is available for a low seven-figure sum of £6,000,000. The spectacular Simonsbath estate is struggling to find suitors, however, with the stables, spa and party barn seemingly not enough to win over potential residents.
The house is not the only feature on offer here, with a range of outbuildings and a staggering 894 acres of land adjacent to the property. To top it off, the estate is located in the heart of the Exmoor National Park, so you won’t be short of things to do.
The property, nicknamed Emmetts Grange, is an attractive agricultural and moorland estate accessed by a long drive.

Combe Florey, Taunton
At the slightly more affordable price of £5,000,000 as you might say, this property is closest to Taunton but still close to the Quantocks and Exmoors. The 17th century house was previously owned by the famous novelist Evelyn Waugh.
The house retains its historic charm and features a swimming pool which overlooks the Quantocks Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. A long private driveway winds through the grounds, passing between the house and the lake which leads to a forecourt in front of the house.
The Elizabethan house was demolished after the English Civil War before being extensively renovated by previous owner William Frauncies.

A massive 20-bedroom Grade I listed Georgian country house is in fact the most expensive common property currently on the Somerset market. Just eight miles from the bustling city of Bath, the countryside location has excellent links with Bristol and its neighbour.
The 20 en-suite bedrooms have extensive gardens and grounds. The gardens represent a superb opportunity to acquire one of the most beautiful bastides in the region. It currently has both hotel and residential use, so the opportunity for a commercial venture could be offered.
