About This Property

NO ONWARD CHAIN. Our team are delighted to offer this gorgeous, charming and characterful Grade II Listed, 2 bedroom cottage in one of Ilminster’s most exclusive central addresses, with front and rear gardens and outbuilding. Now in need of general updating and modernising.

A rarely available and attractive two bedroom, double fronted townhouse in one of Ilminster’s most exclusive and sought after locations with the added benefit of front and rear gardens and a large, versatile garden room/outbuilding. In brief the property comprises an entrance hall, dining room, sitting room and kitchen to the ground floor, with two bedrooms and a further bedroom/study/storage space to the first floor. Although now in need of general updating the property offers an exciting footprint from which to stamp one’s personal design and taste on. The dining room and sitting room offer excellent and practical reception areas and although the kitchen is small, it is functional. There are two double bedrooms to the first floor serviced by a surprisingly large family bathroom with separate shower. There is an additional ‘bedroom’ space but such is its configuration lends itself to more of a study area, ideal for those needing to work from home. Whether you are looking for character, a manageable project, or simply want to be situated within a prestigious and central location, this property must be viewed.

Ilminster is a medieval former market town, situated about 12 miles south east of the county town of Taunton. Surrounded by undulating open countryside designated a Special Landscape area, the majority of the town falls within a Conservation Area with many character properties built of the local mellow Hamstone. The ancient Minster dominates the centre of the town. Ilminster offers a full range of amenities including doctors, dentist, shopping facilities and weekly market. The town also benefits from an arts centre and theatre. There is schooling at primary and intermediate levels and 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. Mainline railway stations are situated at Crewkerne 7 miles (London Waterloo) and Taunton 13 miles (London Paddington). Berrys coaches offer a service to London twice a day. Bath, Bristol and Exeter offer excellent cultural and shopping facilities within easy travelling distance.

The property is approached directly from Court Barton with an attractive front garden complemented by mature shrubs and colourful flora and a central pathway leading to the front door. The west-facing rear garden is predominantly laid to patio and is enclosed to all sides. It has a brick-built storage shed and a rather fascinating and attractive, two storey outbuilding. It would make for a wonderful workshop, studio or even home study and has to be seen to fully appreciate. Please note there is no designated parking for this property.
