Full description

Tenure: Freehold

An attractive Grade II listed Sherborne townhouse with a beautiful courtyard garden, parking and garaging, located a short walk from the town centre. The property was extensively re-modelled in the mid-19th Century to create the classically fronted house as it appears today.

It has been lived in by the current owners since 2000 and since then has been sympathetically renovated and upgraded, including the creation of a courtyard garden at the rear. The rooms have good head height throughout and retain many period features including Tudor stone mullion windows, working shutters and a number of open fireplaces. It has also been enhanced with extensive, bespoke joinery throughout. On the ground floor there is a sitting room, which looks out over The Green, it has a tall coffered ceiling and wood burning stove. A door leads through to the study and on to the kitchen/dining room, steps lead up to a large dining area with a door leading through to the pantry. On the first floor are the master bedroom, which has an en-suite bathroom and a door leading to the large
artist's studio, and a further double bedroom. On the second floor there are 2 more double bedrooms and family shower room, with 2 very useable attic rooms on the third floor, 1 of which is set up as a home office.
In addition to the small, colourful front garden there is a paved courtyard immediately at the rear, which is accessible from the utility room and pantry. Steps lead up to a paved terrace and a further pergola to the rear of the double garage, with a side path leading round to a walled, gravelled parking area with private vehicular access leading into Priestlands Lane.
