EPC Band E

Keswick is believed to have been built in the early 20th century and has classic red brick elevations under a tiled roof. The property has all the charm and character one would expect of a property of this age with the scene immediately set on entering the hallway which is laid to the original tiling with a fine spindle staircase leading up to the first floor. Other character features include open fireplaces, plank & tiled floors throughout and stripped wood doors providing a feeling of continuity throughout the property. The accommodation is arranged with two reception rooms either side of the front hall, the principal of which has an attractive open fireplace as its centrepiece, behind which there is a good kitchen/dining room. The kitchen has been fitted in contemporary style with an eating area to one end that can accommodate a good dining table. To the sides are a good range of floor and wall mounted units and cupboards with a hardwood work surface over and space for both a dishwasher and an electric cooker. On one side of the kitchen a door leads through to the utility/laundry with further cupboards and plumbing for a washing machine and space for a tumble dryer. To the other side of the kitchen there is a dog & boot room with a door through to the gardens. Upstairs there are three good bedrooms served by a family bathroom that has also been remodelled in recent years with a thermostatically controlled shower over the bath. The property is in good decorative order throughout and has gas fired central heating.

Keswick lies ten minutes' walk from the main thoroughfare of Cheap Street to the centre of the historic Abbey town of Sherborne. Sherborne is a particularly attractive Dorset town with a conservation area to its centre and amenities that include the Abbey, 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 providing with Sherborne an excellent range of cultural, recreational and shopping facilities. Sporting, walking and riding opportunities abound within 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 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.

To the front of the property there is a small enclosed garden with a low brick wall framing it with areas of gravel either side. To the rear of the property there is a charming south and west facing garden with two areas of paved terrace with an area of lawn in between and herbaceous and shrub planting to the edges. To one corner there is a useful storage shed that has been used to store motorbikes in the past with a pedestrian walkway on one side leading out onto the street.
