Full description

Spacious detached four bedroom family home with parking, double garage and wonderful views.

139 Lenthay Road is believed to have been built in 1986 and has warm reconstitued stone elevations under a tiled roof. It is apparent that this house was built specifically to take full advantage of its southerly views which take in the open countryside and beyond up to both Dancing Hill and Honeycombe. The accommodation is surprisingly spacious centred around a large entrance hallway on the ground floor and an equally light and airy landing on the first floor. There are four living spaces on the ground floor and four good bedrooms and a two bathrooms on the first floor. The sitting room lies to the right hand side of the hallway running from the front to the rear of the property and is centred around a fireplace equipped with a coal effect gas fire with to one end sliding doors that lead out onto the terrace and garden beyond. Behind the hallway there is what would normally be a dining room that is currently furnished as a snug besides which a door leads through to a large kitchen which in turn leads through to a utility room. The kitchen is equipped with a comprehensive of floor and wall mounted units and cupboards with space for an everyday eating area to one end while to the front of the house there is a study that is currently furnished as a formal dining room besides which there is a cloakroom. Upstairs the principal bedroom stretches across two thirds of the width of the house taking in the views behind with to one end a comprehensive range of wardrobes and to the other a door through to an en-suite bathroom. The three remaining bedrooms lie to the front and side of the house and are served by a family bathroom. The property is double glazed and has a three year old gas fired boiler.

139 Lenthay Road lies on the southwest side of the historic Abbey town of Sherborne. Sheborne is a particularly attractive Dorset town with the Abbey and the conservation area to its centre and amenities that include a main line train station, three doctors surgeries, a library and a comprehensive range of shops, public houses and restaurants. The local regional centre of Yeovil lies within short motoring distance and with Sherborne provides an excellent range of cultural, recreational and shopping facilities. Sporting, walking and riding opportunities abound with the area with golf clubs at both Sherborne and Yeovil while the region is well known for both its public and privately funded schooling. Communication links are good with the 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.

To the front of the property a pillar flanked entrance sweeps round into a driveway laid to tarmac providing parking and turning for a number of cars and access to the double garage that is equipped with an electric up and over door, light and power. To the rear of the property the southerly facing gardens sweep out from the house and are for the most part laid to lawn and edged by well stocked mature herbaceous borders punctuated by an array of shrubs and ornamental trees. To the left hand side of the house there is a useful timber garden shed and a greenhouse while the gardens as a whole are enclosed by a mixture of wall, timber fencing and mature hedging creating a secure outside space.
