About This Property

An enchanting, beautifully renovated and completely unique 2 bedroom barn conversion, with stylish and thoughtfully designed accommodation, manicured garden and situated in a private and secluded position within the heart of this thriving town.

The proverbial hidden gem, tucked away in an exclusive and private setting in the very heart of Ilminster. In brief the property comprises a kitchen/dining/sitting room, two bedrooms and a family bathroom. The current owners have resurrected what was previously a thatched derelict cattle shed with cattle stalls and a hay loft into a magical home, perfectly combing originality with stunning modern day living. Whilst renovating The Barn, a number of treasures were uncovered including flagstones, stable blocks and cider flagons, all of which have been integrated into the design process to truly showcase the rich and varied history of this unique building. Historians will be fascinated to learn that part of the building may have been used as an ARP post during the war, with the discovery of helmets, a valve radio and even the remains of a military style bed. The open-plan living space is a wonderful spot for entertaining with double doors leading out onto the garden and the addition of a wood-burner creates an intimate and inviting ambience for the colder months. Both the bedrooms are comfortable doubles and are serviced by the luxurious family bathroom. The bedroom to the rear is a relatively new addition, with a floating foundation and beautifully clad in Hamstone, reclaimed from the site. The original building is also built from Hamstone and exudes quality throughout from the lime plaster and wash to the engineered oak flooring. For those looking for a romantic escape, holiday home or simply wanting an individual and private dwelling at the heart of Ilminster, it must be viewed.

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). 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 World Heritage designated coastline lies 18 miles to the South.

Nestled within its own secluded grounds and accessed by a private pathway, The Barn occupies a magical and idyllic spot within the heart of Ilminster. The main garden is laid to a stone-base patio, manicured lawns and further complemented by mature shrubs, flora and trees. It is a wonderful spot for alfresco dining, and sitting out in the warmer months whilst the summer house enables any buyer to enjoy the garden through the seasons. It should also be noted there is a private walled garden accessed from the rear bedroom, a fabulous spot for a coffee in the morning or a glass of something in the evening.
