This substantial period townhouse and adjoining self-contained cottage is situated in the charming market town of Ilminster. The Grade II listed house is one of Ilminster’s principal residences and is thought to date back to the 1500s. It was remodelled in Georgian times to create the grand house with elegant proportions that exists today. Constructed of mellow local stone, it has a handsome Regency style front while the back displays the charm of the Elizabethan era.

The house was purchased by the current owners 27 years ago and over the course of time, they have renovated it to an exacting standard and restored its many historic features.

Inside, the main house is beautifully presented which is instantly evident in the

entrance hall where there is a geometrical patterned tiled floor and a traditional staircase. The dining and drawing rooms display classical Georgian features, while the kitchen and sitting room provide a more informal intimate space.

On the first floor, there are five double bedrooms, three with ensuite bathrooms. A connecting door to the adjoining cottage gives access to a sixth double bedroom and additional bathroom. On the second floor, there is a study, a gym/hobby room and storerooms.

The attached self-contained cottage has been used as a granny annexe and for short-term lets.

Outside, the landscaped south-facing walled gardens provide seclusion and offer a tranquil setting to enjoy the distant views over the town to the open countryside beyond. A veranda with ornate iron columns spans the width of the rear of the main house with an alfresco dining area at one end.
