A particularly handsome country house offering surprisingly spacious accommodation and occupying a highly convenient setting within open farmland at the foothills of the Quantocks.

Ilbeare is built of whitened rendered elevations under a pantile roof. The leaded light windows and French doors enhance its appearance; many of the rooms at Ilbeare have either double or triple aspect. A veranda porch to the north side of the house leads into a particularly spacious reception hall with a parquet floor, a window with lovely outlooks across the gardens and two staircases to the first floor. Glazed double doors lead down into the drawing room, which is a particularly light room having windows on four walls, a handsome cut stone fireplace with wood burning stove and French doors leading out to the garden. There is an inner hall with a cloakroom, French doors to veranda and doors leading through into the dining room, which has two exposed ceiling beams, inglenook fireplace with an Efel woodburning stove and further French doors to the gardens. Further doors lead into the sitting room, which has a double aspect, two window seats, a fireplace (at present blocked off) with an antique oak carved mantelpiece and woodblock floor. The kitchen/breakfast room has west facing windows with views of the Quantock Hills and is well fitted with a range of floor mounted cabinets, with wood and granite work surfaces and includes two under counter electric ovens and a four ring ceramic hob, a wine cooler and an offset area with two Bosch undercounter dishwashers. There is also a secondary sink. A four oven AGA is set in an original fireplace. A door from the kitchen leads into a rear hall, having a boot room, walk in pantry and a laundry with a floor mounted Grant boiler, deep sink and plumbing for a washing machine and with a stable door leading to the gravelled driveway.

The principal staircase leads to the first floor landing and leads into the principal bedroom, which is particularly spacious, beautifully light with a triple aspect and glorious views over the garden. There are ample built in cupboards and a door into the en suite shower room, having a wash hand basin, wc, a shower and a heated towel rail. There is a spacious family bathroom with contemporary style bath, a wash basin, wc and a walk-in shower.
