The properties in Breowan Close are very unique in terms of their layout and generous proportions. On the rare occasion they come to the open market they are highly sought after by those who appreciate not just their excellent room sizes and versatility, but the convenience of such a peaceful cul de sac just a short walk from the pretty town centre.
As you enter the property the large entrance hallway sets the scene for the rest of the property. Stairs lead to the first floor (the stairlift can be included) and allow plenty of space underneath the stairs for a desk or easy chair. To one corner a useful built-in cupboard houses the alarm controls and fuse box. The property is well presented throughout and modern white doors open to a ground floor master bedroom or guest suite. This is a spacious double room with two sets of double built-in wardrobes and a generous en suite bath / shower room. This is attractively fitted with a modern white suite including low level WC, panelled bath, separate shower cubicle with mains shower and modern vanity wash hand basin, alongside a large chrome ladder style radiator / towel rail. The light marble effect ceramic tiles are bordered with pretty mosaic feature tiling.
From the hall a further door opens to a second shower room which has also been fully modernised in recent times with attractive aqua metro tiling, and suite including contemporary concealed cistern WC and wash hand unit with useful storage, extra-large low-profile shower unit with glass screen, electric shower and external start / stop function. Again, this is complemented a chrome ladder style towel rail / radiator.
Adjoining the shower room is a spacious separate dining room with south facing aspect over the rear garden. Its proximity to the shower room means this could easily be utilised as an extra ground floor bedroom should you require it. A glazed door currently leads through to the main reception room (also accessible from the hall).
The main reception room is L-shaped and spacious enough to be used as an open plan sitting / dining room if you prefer. To one side a Minsterstone fireplace has a real flame gas fire inset. Double glazed French doors open to a UPVC double glazed conservatory with triple aspect windows overlooking the sunny courtyard garden and a door opening to one side. The conservatory also has its own radiator for the cooler months but enjoys a southerly aspect.
From the living room a further door opens into a well-appointed kitchen with birch units, green granite effect laminate worktops and attractive glazed rustic aqua tiled splashbacks. There is a white ceramic one and a half bowl single drainer sink unit with mixer tap, integrated slimline dishwasher, under counter freezer and separate fridge. It also includes a Zanussi double electric oven and AEG stainless steel has hob with matching cooker hood over. Beyond the kitchen is a separate utility room opening to the rear garden, and with an internal door to the integral garage. The utility room houses the wall mounted gas fired Worcester combination boiler for central heating, further sink unit and cupboards, with space for both your washing machine and tumble dryer. There is additional space if you would like room for an extra chest freezer or similar appliance.
The first floor of the property has an equally versatile layout. A spacious modernised family bathroom has a white suite including bath with shower over and a Velux window letting in plenty of light from the south side. To one end is a useful large double width laundry cupboard with slatted shelving.
From the landing one door leads to another double room with front aspect, fitted wardrobe under and further storage cupboard under the eaves. Adjacent to the bathroom there are two infinitely versatile rooms which could be combined if you wish to create a huge master suite with dressing room or subdivide to make two further spacious bedrooms. Currently, this portion of the first floor is laid out as an unusually spacious bedroom with southerly facing dormer window has a range of fitted storage to one side, including hanging space, shelving and deep fitted storage shelves under the eaves. There is also plenty of space for a sofa or comfy chairs if you wish. Beyond this bedroom a door opens to a large study or hobby space with window overlooking the front aspect. Whether you are a keen artist, work from home or have a train set you have been hiding in your attic, this room has plenty of potential!
To the front of the property a driveway provides parking and access to the integral single garage. This benefits from an electric remote controlled up and over door for ease of use, and has power and light connected as well as an internal water tap.
The front garden is laid to low maintenance borders with raised beds including various shrubs and perennials, underplanted with daffodils and self-seeded plants in the gravel borders. A raised bed on the shadier side is designed as a fernery. A pathway leads to the front door and a further pedestrian access to the side leads through a private side access passage which has double glazed doors to both ends and as such provides useful extra storage space for bikes and garden implements perhaps.
At the rear of the property is a southerly-facing courtyard which enjoys a surprising amount of privacy for a town centre property, and is completely walled creating quite a sheltered micro-climate. Although the majority of the garden is paved for ease of maintenance, there is a raised bed with ornamental Japanese Prunus tree and borders around the edge of the courtyard containing some larger shrubs such as Tree Peony, Roses and Ilex Golden King. They are also happy to leave many of the container grown plants including Hydrangea, Iris and a Wisteria, (excluding the Hortas).
The vendors have kindly provided an extensive list of plants included and their care regime, should prospective buyers be interested. We are happy to provide this upon request.
The property is attached on one side via the integral single garage and first floor hobby room. To the other side, the properties are attached at roof level and via an enclosed side passageway.
Breowan Close is a small cul de sac of similar looking properties which are actually each quite different in their internal layouts. They form part of a small development built in the 1990’s alongside a high-quality retirement complex, offering a chance to own a freehold property in what is naturally a peaceful but convenient location. The main town centre of Ilminster lies within two or three-minutes’ walk of the property with its good variety of independent stores.
These are mostly centred around the market square and 15th century Minster church and have everything you need from an award-winning butchers, delicatessen, cheese and dairy shop, super hardware store, homewares, antiques stores, clothes boutiques and gift shops.
Ilminster is well served by a town-centre Tesco store with ample free parking. Alongside is a bowls club and tennis club and close-by a town library. There is also an excellent Co-op store with adjacent Peacocks clothes store. Ilminster Arts Centre is a vibrant arts venue with a licensed café and there are plenty of other places to eat, including pubs, cafes and restaurants. The town has several hairdressers / beauty salons, a dental surgery, Primary School and a modern health centre with two doctors' surgeries. It is a charming market town and benefits from superb road-links via the A303 and A358. There are mainline stations located at Crewkerne (London Waterloo to Exeter) and Taunton (London Paddington / Bristol / Bath).
