Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Imagine getting out of your car in your double garage with remote control door, and accessing the lift in the basement to take you to the ground or first floor. This is what the current owner thought when he first set eyes on this property in the mid 1980's. He saw the potential to develop it into an adapted living space. This house is now unrecognisable from the one purchased. The original garage to the side of the house was completely knocked down and rebuilt into what is now the kitchen and utility room and the master bedroom and ensuite. Added to that was the lift shaft, the basement, and a 7.5 meter tunnel leading from the basement to the double garage. The front garden was landscaped and there is a big patio area with elevated flower beds. To complete the picture the owner purchased land to the side of the house which enabled access around the side to the back garden which was previously not possible.



In brief the house comprises, double garage with tunnel leading to the basement. Lift and stairs leading to the ground floor. Entrance hall with triple sliding doors to the front garden. Off the entrance hall is the large adapted kitchen with utility room. The utility room has a door to the back garden. The large dining room is off the hall and has double doors to the back garden. The living room with large double glazed windows to both front and rear gardens. There's also the lift and the cloakroom/WC. The stairs to the first floor open out to a spacious gallery landing. Off the landing are the 4 bedrooms, all doubles. The master bedroom has an ensuite wet room. All bedrooms have fitted double wardrobes. All the bedrooms have large double glazed windows, a real feature of this light and airy house. Also off the landing is the family bathroom, an airing cupboard, the lift, access to the loft and a door leading to a small balcony.

To the side of the garage is another door for easy access when not using a car. There is also a set of steps to the side of the garage that lead to the front garden. The front garden is south facing and is part laid to lawn nearest the house and a snail shell effect patio with raised flower beds, again due consideration given for wheelchair gardeners. There's a large elevated brick pond that makes a wonderful feature. To the side is a summer house, a large greenhouse and a vegetable garden surrounded by patio paving for ease of access. Beyond are 2 further sheds with a lean to for wood storage. From the side garden to the back garden there is a ramp. The back garden is mainly laid to lawn. There are a variety of established trees and shrubs.

The property is ideally located for access to the town centre and the schools. In fact it is opposite Sherborne Girls and just along the road from the Oxley Sports Centre which has it's own swimming pool. The town centre is but a few minutes walk and there you will find the amazing Abbey and the quaint, mainly independent high street outlets, restaurants and bars. The train station is serviced by the main line from Exeter to London Waterloo. Access to the A303 and the M5 is straight forward as well. The larger regional centre of Yeovil is approximately 5 miles away where you will find larger outlets.
