This charming end-of-terrace period cottage is just a short walk from the centre of Ilminster, and close to the recreation ground and several countryside walks.

Tucked away off Listers Hill, this beautifully presented property is within easy reach of the town's main facilities and offers more than meets the eye with deceptively spacious and thoughtfully refurbished accommodation. Unlike many other town centre period properties, it comes with off-road parking and a south-facing courtyard-style garden.

Inside, the three double bedroom cottage is presented in superb decorative order which is immediately apparent in the large entrance hall where there is a period wooden front door, an original stained glass fanlight window and practical oak effect flooring that flows from the porch, through the hall and into the kitchen/diner.

The generous sitting room has a dual aspect, cottage-style window seats and a modern feature fire recess with a tiled hearth and oak mantle shelf creating a nice focal point. The sizeable kitchen/dining room is a true highlight and extends across the rear of the cottage, It has been updated beautifully with an attractive range of grey shaker-style units with Victorian-style pull handles in a pewter finish and oak worktops, complemented by the oak effect flooring and overhead beams.

On the first floor, there are three good-sized double bedrooms and a family bathroom with a panelled bath. The principal bedroom has a westerly aspect and fitted storage including wardrobes with louvre doors.

Outside, the majority of the outdoor space is located at the front of the cottage on the south side. This front courtyard has been landscaped with attractive block paving providing ample space for parking, while there is enough room for a lovely sunny garden with raised timber sleeper flower beds. An adjoining substantial timber store is a handy addition, and behind this, there is a timber pergola creating a pleasant seating or BBQ area that is perfect for entertaining.

The property owns a strip of land at the rear of the terrace which is laid to hardstanding with a raised timber flower bed.

The property comes with no onward chain.
