Full description

An elegant period house well positioned close to the town centre with 4 bedrooms and courtyard garden.

45 Hound Street is a beautiful period Grade II Listed property arranged over three floors in a quiet backwater to the centre of the historic Abbey town of Sherborne. The property has warm stone elevations under a stone and tiled roof and has a wealth of character with generously proportioned rooms with good ceiling heights, open fireplaces, exposed stone walls, timber beams and deep window seats.

The property is of particular historic interest as it is believed to be the former residence of the late Archbishop of Canterbury "Geoffrey Fisher" who crowned Queen Elizabeth II at her coronation in 1953

On the ground floor a large entrance hall is laid to blue Lias flagstone floor with to one side a generous sitting room which is centred around an attractive fireplace with coal effect gas fire. There is a fitted glazed unit with shelving and cupboards to one end together with a recess providing further shelving to the other side and an understairs cupboard providing parking. To the other end of the hall a door leads out to the west facing courtyard garden and further along the hall the dining room is also laid to blue Lias flagstones and has a fireplace with wood burning stove (which requires a liner). The bathroom is a good size with a white suite and separate shower and has oak flooring. Opposite the dining room the kitchen is equipped with a range of floor and wall cupboards and has space for a cooker, dishwasher adn fridge/freezer and flows through to a breakfast room with a vaulted ceiling, timber beams adn a cupboard with fitted shelving. Beyond the kitchen a utility/cloakroom has space and plumbing for a washing machine and offers further space for appliances. Besides this the conservatory overlooks the courtyard garden and is a light space with some exposed stone wall.

Upstairs there are two double bedrooms one of which has an ornate fireplace and built-in wardrobes and the other has an understairs cupboard and has been given Listed building consent to covert some of the room into a bathroom which would provide facilities on this floor. The second floor feels particularly historic with two A framed timber beamed bedrooms one of which is double aspect with views across the towns roof tops and gardens beyond.

The property is in good working order throughout, has gas fired central heating and the benefit of a water softener.

45 Hound Street lies on the centre of the historic Abbey town of Sherborne within walking distance of many of the towns amenities. Those amenities include the Abbey, a main line train station, three doctors surgeries and a comprehensive range of shops, public houses and restaurants. 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 private and publically funded schooling.

Communication links are good with the 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 rear of the property there is a private courtyard garden laid to paving making an ideal entertaining area during the summer months.
