Full description

Tenure: Freehold

1 Lawn Court is a handsome mid terrace Grade 11 listed property, formerly the ’Registrars Office’ for Shaftesbury.  It was once part of a much larger 500 year old town house which has subsequently been divided.  The property is arranged over three floors providing spacious and adaptable accommodation with four/five bedrooms.  The property benefits from a quiet and private location in the centre of Shaftesbury set around a central courtyard and has been sympathetically renovated and improved over the last 500 years and maintains much of its charm and character, with original beams, wooden panelling, quirky windows, cellar and fireplaces.  There is a small paved outside seating area and an integral heated garage through the courtyard with door into the kitchen.  This is a fantastic opportunity to own a wonderful part of historic hilltop Shaftesbury.
