Full description

Handsome 3/4 bedroom Victorian villa with period features with a contemporary twist.


Overton is believed to have been built at the start of the 20th century and has attractive brick elevations under a tiled roof. For the most part Overton is what it appears from the outside which is a classic Edwardian villa with period features that include a box bay window, spindle staircase, sash windows, good ceiling heights, open fireplaces, dado and picture rails however the addition of a garden/living room to the rear of the property and the conversion of the roof into a playroom/occasional bedroom give the property that extra bit of space lacking in its neighbours. The accommodation is conventionally arranged with a sitting room to the front of the property centred around a fireplace with a box bay window looking out to the front, a dining room, a kitchen and a utility room to the centre of the property with the kitchen opening out into a stylish family/living room. The dining room also centres around a fireplace while the kitchen is equipped with a range of floor and wall mounted units and cupboards, has a gas hob with an electric double oven under and an ingenious hidden bin area under a solid wood work surface. The garden/living room has a conventional roof to its centre with windows to the edges and double doors opening out onto the gardens. The kitchen is laid to quarry tiles while the living room is laid to attractive ceramic tile flooring. On the first floor there are three good bedrooms served by a family bathroom and off the main bedroom there are stairs leading up to the second floor which has a playroom/occasional bedroom.

Overton lies in one of Sherborne most sought after residential roads just to the north of the main thoroughfare of Cheap Street within walking distance of many of the towns amenities. Those amenities include a main line station, two supermarkets, the Abbey, three doctors surgeries, a library and a comprehensive range of shops, public houses and restaurants. Sporting, walking and riding opportunities abound within the area with golf clubs at Sherborne and Yeovil while the region is well known for both its public and privately funded schooling. Communication links are good with a main line station at Sherborne 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.
