About This Property

An enchanting and rare opportunity to acquire this beautiful 3 bedroom former Toll House, with excellent and well-proportioned accommodation, scope for further improvement, off-road parking, large garden and situated on the outskirts of Ilminster.

An outstanding and truly charming Grade II listed three bedroom detached former Toll House, set in generous grounds and situated on the outskirts of the increasingly popular Medieval town of Ilminster. In brief the property comprises an entrance hall, dining room, sitting room, WC and kitchen/breakfast room to the ground floor and three bedrooms and a family shower room to the first floor. The Toll House is steeped in history and its exposed stone exterior adds to the curb appeal. Both the dining room and sitting room are warm, welcoming and intimate spaces, with central fireplaces providing wonderful focal points. The noticeably light kitchen/breakfast room is well fitted and takes in views to the gardens and is reminiscent of a country cottage. To the first floor, all the bedrooms are of generous proportions with two being good-sized doubles and the third lending itself to being a home study for those who need to work from home. They are all serviced by the family shower room. Approaching circa 1,150 sq ft, The Toll House is deceptively large and with substantial grounds surrounding the property there would be scope for further extension subject to the necessary consents. It is rare to find such a charming and inviting property and it will undoubtedly appeal to families, those looking for character properties and those looking to be in close proximity to excellent amenities and communication links. Viewings strongly recommended.

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 coastline lies 18 miles to the South.

The property is approached via a driveway giving access to off-road parking. The expansive gardens lie beyond this and are made up of lawn, a raised patio area and further complemented by an abundance of colourful flora mature shrubs and trees. It makes more an idyllic setting for childÂ’s play, alfresco dining and entertaining whilst keen gardeners will appreciate the blank canvas.
