EPC Band D

4 Church Close is believed to have been originally built in the 1980's and has been substantially reconfigured and extended over the last fifteen years to create some outstanding flexible accommodation. The whole property is specifically configured to take full advantage of its position which is to the centre of the hamlet of Beer Hackett in a raised position looking out across the glorious Dorset countryside towards the south toMelbury Bubb and Yetminster. The scene is set the moment you walk through the front door into a large dining hall from which the two principal living rooms are accessed both having good views over the gardens and countryside to the south. The sitting room is particularly handsome room and is centered around a carved ham stone fireplace with double doors that lead out onto the terrace and garden again taking in the views. The kitchen also stretches along the back of the property with an eating area to one end and a beautifully fitted contemporary kitchen to the other that is equipped with integral appliances that include a double electric oven, a ceramic hob, a dishwasher, a fridge and a freezer. In front of the eating area there is a second set of double opening doors overlooking the terrace while the kitchen floor is laid to some high quality laminate flooring. On the other side of the house there are two bedrooms one with an en-suite bathroom and the other having use of a shower room. It has been suggested that this end of the house could easily be organised as a separate annexe if so required. Upstairs there are two further bedrooms served by a particularly spacious bathroom with all four bedrooms having good built-in wardrobes. The principal of the bedrooms upstairs has the added bonus of a balcony which takes in the views behind to maximum effect. The property is in immaculate decorative order throughout, is fully double glazed and is equipped with electric storage heaters.

4 Church Close lies to the end of a small development of six properties away from any passing traffic and adjoining open farmland. The hamlet itself has a church to its centre while the neighbouring villages of Yetminster and Thornford within short motoring distance have shops, a couple of public houses, a health centre, two primary schools, two train halts and a selection of village shops. The historic Abbey town of Sherborne and the local regional centre of Yeovil are also a short drive away providing between them an excellent range of cultural, recreational and shopping facilities. Sporting, walking and riding opportunities abound within the area while the region is well known for both its public and privately funded schooling. Communication links are good with the thornford train halta short step away on the Bristol to Weymouth line, a main line station at Sherborne linking directly with London Waterloo while road links are along the A303 giving swift access to London and the Home counties along the M3, M25 route.

To the front of the property twin gates give way to an extensive area of tarmac drive providing parking and turning for a number of cars and access to the detached double garage that is equipped with light & power and a remotely operated up and over electric door. Immediately to the front of the property there is an area of garden laid to lawn with raised herbaceous borders to the edges. The gardens to the rear can be divided into two areas designed to take full advantage of the views with a paved terrace running much of the width of the property with a pergola topped eating area to one end and in front of the terrace a lawn stretches away from the property with herbaceous and shrub borders to either end and a picket fence the width of the rear boundary. To the right hand side of the main body of the garden there is a decked terrace with a timber summer house to one corner.
