4 bedroom cottage for sale

Ryme Intrinseca, Sherborne

Sold STC £385,000

Property Description

Full description

A rare opportunity to purchase this delightful semi detached cottage lying in a tranquil location with lovely rural views, and just on the outskirts of the pretty Dorset village of Ryme Intrinseca which in itself is about a mile from Yetminster where there are excellent day to day facilities, the mainline train station at Yeovil Junction just 3 miles away and under six miles to the historic town of Sherborne which offers further amenities. We believe that the property was built in the 1960's to sympathetically blend in with its environment which it does successfully - looking more olde worlde than modern with its Georgian style windows and 'cottagey' style porch. Over the last few years the current owners have improved the property with new doors throughout, replaced the en-suite and bathroom fittings with more contemporary suites, installed new kitchen units as well as some new flooring laid. In addition, the property benefits from Upvc double glazing and oil fired central heating via radiator. This charming home must be viewed to truly appreciate how easily it lends itself to a variety of requirements - as an established or growing family home, in between downsize or for retirement

In brief, the ground floor accommodation consists of porch opening into inviting entrance hall, sitting room with multi-burner, dining room with multi-burner, kitchen and garden room which offers a multi functional space. There is also a cloakroom. On the first floor there is the family bathroom and four bedrooms, three of which are of a double size with the master having the use of an en-suite shower room. Outside there is a single garage, generous parking, front garden and a lovely landscaped rear garden.
