TUCKED away in one of Ilminster's most "secret" locations, this substantial home is set in 0.51 acres and offers light filled accommodation with glorious views, surrounded by beautifully traditional gardens.

It is clear from the moment you enter the driveway that Rosewalk has been beautifully looked after.

The house sits almost in the centre of its half an acre plot, with the main entrance being approached from behind.

The layout is such that all principal rooms then make the most of the glorious south facing position behind with views over the garden towards the open countryside.

Entering the property through a useful and generous porch, the hardwood front door is surrounded by the original stone mullion doorway.

This leads into a traditional and spacious entrance hall with original parquet flooring and its turning staircase giving a grand feel.

Gentle natural light from the north floods in via a large picture window on the half landing. There is under stairs storage and plenty of room for traditional hallway furniture.

Doors lead off to all the principal rooms, and the owners have previously extended the former downstairs cloakroom to create a large accessible ground floor wet-room with shower area.

An attractive secure wrought iron gateway leads through to the gardens at the rear.

These have been beautifully designed with a block paved sun terrace across the rear of the house, with long brick raised bed well stocked with sun loving plants. A pergola is clad with climbing roses and ornamental grape vine.
