Tenure: Freehold

In the heart of our pretty market town with a glorious leafy outlook to the front, this super Victorian terrace house has lovely proportions typical of the era.

The Property
With accommodation typical of the era, the entrance hall with wood effect flooring opens to two separate receptions rooms on the ground floor. As the house is situated just a few yards from the market square, it overlooks the mature gardens of an attractive Grade II listed property and hence enjoys a remarkably leafy outlook to the front towards the tower of the Minster. The front sitting room enjoys this view through the bay window which makes the most of the afternoon sun. A feature fireplace is a nice focal point, although the property also benefits from full gas central heating. The dining room behind is a nice size and a sash window overlooks the lower enclosed courtyard. Back in the hall there’s a handy understairs storage cupboard and an area with a light to hang your coats too. At the rear is a galley style kitchen fitted with modern units and a single bowl single drainer stainless steel sink unit, space and plumbing for a washing machine, and integrated electric hob and oven with extractor over. A raised niche provides a space for an upright fridge freezer. Like the dining room, the window and door overlooks the lower courtyard.

On the first floor the landing is a generous size with a handy space for a nice piece of furniture, but also plenty of room to contemplate a second staircase should you wish to look at the possibility of converting the attic. The master bedroom sits at the front of the property and enjoys the same lovely view as the sitting room. Adjoining the master bedroom is a walk-in dressing area with its own separate window to the front. The second bedroom is also a nice double room, whilst to the rear of the property is a good sized bathroom. It is fitted with a modern white suite including wash hand basin, low level WC and L-shaped bath with shower area. A convenient cupboard with bi-fold door for easy access, houses the wall mounted gas central heating boiler and handy extra storage shelving. The bathroom is fully tiled in crisp white tiling to the walls and slate effect tiled flooring, and also benefits from a chrome ladder style tower rail / radiator.

Outside
Immediately to the rear is a sheltered courtyard with high walls surrounding giving a more private feel. There’s room for your own pretty pots if you’re green fingered. The back door to the kitchen makes it the perfect spot for a culinary herb or two! What you initially think is just a small courtyard takes you a little bit by surprise as the path leads around the end of the kitchen, past a handy timber store and outside tap up steps to a further courtyard area. Set in an elevated position behind the terrace of properties there’s ample room here for a table and chairs, and a small flower bed bounded by an old brick wall.

It’s just a short walk down into the pretty market town centre with its wide 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, homewares, antiques stores, clothes boutiques and gift shops. Ilminster is also 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.

The market square is just a short walk away and also serves as the bus stop for local bus services to neighbouring towns and the Berry’s Superfast coach service to London. Main line train stations can be found at Taunton (London Paddington / Bristol / Bath etc) and Crewkerne (London Waterloo / Exeter etc).

Ilminster Arts Centre is a vibrant arts venue with licensed café and there are plenty of other places to eat too, including pubs, cafes, restaurants and take-aways. The town also benefits from several hairdressers / beauty salons and a dental surgery as well as modern health centre on the southern side of the town with two doctors' surgeries.

Ilminster is arguably one of South-Somerset's prettiest market towns and has everything you need for day to day living on your doorstep. Should you need to go further afield it benefits from superb road links via the A303 and A358. The town has two schools, Greenfylde First School and Swanmead Middle School.
