14 New Road is situated towards the Northern edge of the town in a favoured residential area being conveniently set just a few minutes from the town centre. The house is set back with an attractive frontage and is arguably one of the most impressive houses of this type in the town. The house was built in the late Victorian era of red brick and local stone elevations under a slate tiled roof with recently replaced gas fired central heating with radiators. The house over the last 2 ownerships has undergone extensive refurbishment whilst maintaining many character features, including tiled floors, pine floorboards together with a range of fireplaces and recently refurbished sash windows. The accommodation to the ground floor is typical of a house of this period with two delightful reception rooms with high ceilings, an entrance hall with original tiled floor, set to the rear of the house is a lovely kitchen/breakfast room with doors out to a courtyard area leading through to the main garden and open outlook through the garden itself. There is also the recent addition of a ground floor cloakroom. To the first floor there are 3 good sized bedrooms, the main of which has an impressive bay frontage and delightful open views over the town to the Blackdown Hills beyond. There is also a recently refitted shower room and separate cloakroom. To the second floor there is a generous size double bedroom along with a fully fitted bathroom with roll top bath and large shower enclosure. The gardens are an attractive feature of the property with a good size front lawn setting the property back from New Road with stone chipping drive way leading to The Coach House which appears to offer scope for creating a home office or studio should any buyer require but at present gives a good double garage with storage over. The south facing walled rear gardem is a delightful feature of the property having been fully landscaped with a range of beautifully stocked flower beds adding colour and interest, seating areas, fully walled with outlook down over the town and back towards the property.

Ilminster is a Medieval market town, the centre of which is dominated by the ancient Minster. The town developed further during the Georgian period with many of the properties being constructed in the local mellow Hamstone.
