Full description

Handsome Grade II Listed property in the heart of the village. 2,792 sqft Property with generous adaptable accommodation. 3 - 6 bedrooms. Parking and garden

Situation - Set in the heart of the bustling community village of Kilmington, overlooking the green. The village is home to an array of clubs and facilities, with two pubs, and churches, renowned primary school, garage with shop and popular Millers Farm shop.
The village has a bus service to the nearby market town of Axminster with its mainline station to London. The Jurassic coast is a short distance to the south with Lyme Regis, Beer and Sidmouth an easy drive.

A range of educational facilities are in the area including the renowned Colyton Grammar school around 4 miles away.

Description - This charming Grade II listed home has an adaptable arrangement with generous light rooms exuding in character. Believed to date back to the early -19th Century (possibly earlier), the property has evolved over recent years and has scope to develop further, consents may be required.
The Georgian proportions, timber sash windows and exposed stone floors have been enhanced and improved by the current owners to preserve this property's charm.
On the ground floor to the front of the house is the former shop accommodation with the large retail space, plus office and store room. This portion of the property could be retained as commercial use or renovated into generous living space.

To the rear of the property, on the ground floor, is a possible annexe or guest accommodation with separate entrance. It has a good sized sitting room with double doors into the garden, and a small utility room. There is also a double bedroom with en suite wet room.

Rising to the first floor, previously used as the shop proprietor's quarters, forms two double bedrooms, south facing kitchen and shower room. The dual aspect sitting room has village views and lends itself to become a master bedroom.

Accessed from a stair way is the attic space, divided into three spaces with windows to both ends, beautiful curved vaulted ceilings and wide timber floorboards. This space has listed building consent to convert into a bedroom, shower room, and additional bedroom/ study/ dressing room as well as three roof light windows.

Planning - The property benefits from change of use from the post office and stores into the main residential accommodation (Ref 17/1959/COU).
Listed building consent (Ref 14/1302/LBC) was granted in 2014, many of the improvements have been made, but there remains the consent to progress this further.

Outside - To the front is an area of gravel parking, and double timber gates to an enclosed gravel parking area to the side of the property.

The recently landscaped garden is just one of the outstanding features of the property. Set on the south westerly elevation this private walled garden has a lovely sunny position with interlinking paths and patios surrounding a lawn and attractive borders, alongside a garden shed.

There is a further gravelled rear courtyard with a stone store to the back of the annexe/ guest accommodation.

Services - Mains water, drainage and electric. Oil-fired central heating.

Viewing - Strictly by appointment only after calling Stags 01404 45885.

Directions - Turn off the A35 at the Old Inn just West of Axminster into the village. Shortly after passing St Giles Church on your left, the property is set in front of you on the right-hand side of the road.
