Full description

Imposing detached five bedroom Edwardian house to the center of the historic Abbey town of Sherborne.

Fairfield House is a large five bedroom family home typical of the Edwardian era with handsome local stone elevations under a tiled roof. As one would expect of a property of this era it enjoys spacious flowing accommodation with generous ceiling heights, large windows and a south and west aspect all of which enhance the feeling of light and space throughout. Character features include an original tiled floor in the hall, open fireplaces, picture rails, window seats, sash windows and bay windows while modern additions include a large south facing garden room, two bathrooms one of which is en-suite and both enjoying both a bath and a shower, a gas fired Aga and a recently installed gas fired Worcester condensing boiler.

The accommodation is conventionally arranged around a central hallway with a fine spindle staircase and an original tiled floor with, to one side, a dining room and to the other a drawing room each with its own fireplace and an attractive bay window. Off the drawing room double doors flow into the garden room while to the end of the hallway there is a well equipped kitchen with a comprehensive range of floor and wall mounted units and cupboards with granite worktops, with a dining area and double doors onto the garden to one end and a gas fired Aga to one side. The practical side of the house is catered for to the other side of the hallway with both a utility room and a cloakroom. Upstairs on the first floor there is a principal bedroom that mirrors the drawing room below with an unusually large en-suite bathroom. The four remaining bedrooms spread over two floorsall contain wash hand basins whilst sharing a family bathroom which is also equipped with a separate shower and bath. In short the combination of its location to the centre of town, off street parking and the breadth of accommodation makes Fairfield House a rare commodity indeed.

Fairfield House lies a short step to the north of the main shopping thoroughfare of Cheap Street and to the centre of the historic Abbey town of Sherborne. The town has amenities that include the Abbey, a main line stain station, two supermarkets, three doctors surgeries, a community hospital and a comprehensive range of shops, public houses and restaurants all within walking distance. Sporting, walking and riding opportunities abound within the area with golf clubs at both Sherborne and Yeovil while the region is well known for its schools which include the Sherborne Schools, the Bruton Schools, Millfield and St Antony's Leweston. Communication links are good with a main line station linking directly with London Waterloo while road links are along the A303 joined at Wincanton giving swift access to London and the Home Counties along the M3, M25 route.
