Property description

If you're looking for something smaller but would prefer not to buy a leasehold flat, this compact freehold house could be just the ticket. For one or two people there's everything you need day to day, but it would also make the perfect lock-up and leave, or holiday let because of its tucked away location and proximity to local attractions. The shared courtyard provides access to the front door, and also an access into the rear garden, so it's ideal if you need to bring things through to the garden without going right through the house.

The UPVC double glazed front door opens into a kitchen, where the stairs lead up to the first floor and the understairs cupboard houses the gas boiler that provides gas central heating throughout. A UPVC window lets daylight in from the courtyard, and a range of cream shaker style units provide ample storage. There's space and plumbing for a washing machine and space for an electric cooker. In the corner by a small breakfast bar there's room for an upright fridge freezer too. A glazed door leads through into the living area, where UPVC French doors make the most of the south-facing aspect and views. The laminate flooring extends through this room and the kitchen, helping to maximise the feeling of light and space as much as possible.

Heading upstairs, the stairwell has useful display shelving and the landing opens into a central shower-room with WC, wash hand basin and shower cubicle housing Triton electric shower. There's a bedroom at the rear which would fit a single bed or could make a useful dressing room to the main bedroom. It also provides access to the loft space via a hatch, whilst the main bedroom is a double room with two windows letting in plenty of light and allowing you to enjoy the rising sun from the comfort of your duvet.

The property was originally part of a larger building, converted back in the 1990's and is tucked away alongside a footpath, with a small shared doorway opening into a shared courtyard area leading to the cottages at the rear.

It's just a short walk down into the pretty market town centre, and yet to the rear enjoys lovely south facing views over the town and countryside. The town centre has a 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.

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.
