Property description

Tenure: Freehold

A beautifully appointed, spacious & individual detached property built by Minster stone in the 1930’s as a showcase house. The property sits on an elevated plot with far reaching views and benefits from a double garage, driveway and gardens extending to 0.371 of an acre.

Shrigleigh is believed to date back to the late 1930's and was constructed by local company Minster Stone, as an example of the type of stone they could produce. The property has been refurbished by the current owner to a high standard and now provides a beautifully appointed town home. The house is built of reconstructed stone with colour washed elevations and impressive mullion windows set with lead lights. There is gas central heating along with the added benefit of a top-up solar hot water system. Internally the property has a well planned layout, with 3 good sized reception rooms each sitting on the corner of the house with bright double aspects. Minster Stone open fireplaces vary from room to room, each accessed from the entrance hall with ground floor cloakroom.
The sitting room to the front of the house has the added advantage of glazed french doors leading onto the sun terrace, which offers superb far reaching views. The accommodation downstairs is completed with a refitted kitchen breakfast room leading through to the utility/study and in to the double garage.
On the first floor there are 2 large double bedrooms, each with fitted wardrobes and double aspect windows. There is then a third double bedroom and family bathroom along with a separate shower room. The property has an attractive outside layout with large gardens, which are beautifully planted with an abundance of colour, attractive terraced seating areas, driveway and a double garage. There is also a useful single garage at road level for storage.

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. The surrounding land is lightly wooded and is designated a Special Landscape area. Ilminster offers a full range of shopping and other amenities, together with schooling at primary and intermediate levels with churches of various denominations. Ilminster has convenient road access to both the M5, junction 25 lies 11 miles to the north-west and to the A303, now dual carriageway most of the way to the M3. There are mainline railway stations at Crewkerne 7 miles (London Waterloo) and the county town of Taunton 13 miles (London Paddington). Bath, Bristol and Exeter offer excellent cultural and shopping facilities within easy travelling distance. The World Heritage designated Jurassic Coast lies 18 miles to the South.

The property is approached off the Beacon with a driveway leading up the northern boundary of the house to an attractive pillared entrance opening into a parking and turning area. Adjoining the drive area is a DOUBLE GARAGE 19'11 x 19' (6.07m x 5.8m) with large up and over door, loft area suitable for storage over, light & power, rear door to garden plus internal door into the property. Approached from road level on foot there is an archway with steps leading through the beautifully landscaped front garden. Adjoining this arch is a single garage at road level, useful for storage with up & over door. The gardens to the front of the house have been well planted with a range of flowering shrubs, and are set in two large beds with a central lawn with arch through to a further area of the garden. The lawns extend up the southern side of the plot with a recently landscaped terrace set to the side of the house which enjoys a sunny aspect throughout the day and into the evening.
