ASTONISHING PERIOD GRADE II LISTED CONVERSION PROPERTY! 32' COURTYARD GARDEN! OFF ROAD SECURE PARKING! MASSIVE 2864 SQUARE FEET OF STYLISH ACCOMMODATION OVER FOUR FLOORS! TOP CENTRAL SHERBORNE POSITION! ELEGANT PERIOD CEILING HEIGHTS, EXPOSED HEAVY BEAMWORK, FLAG STONES AND INTERIOR NATURAL STONE! AMAZING ECLECTIC BASEMENT CONVERSION WITH ANNEXE POTENTIAL! This one-in-a-million house has to be viewed to be believed. The huge living accommodation has character themes running through each of the four floors. If you want a mixture of impressive, elegant, Georgian ceiling heights and grandeur, heavy cottage-style original beam work and flag stones and a large country farm house kitchen then this is the property for you. The current owners have converted the vast period cellar to make a lower ground floor that is huge further accommodation (incorporating a multi-media room) at minimum or, potentially, a large annexe/apartment in itself. The property has been renovated and converted by an architect to a very high standard throughout, retaining much in the way of period character elegance but with a full gas-fired radiator central heating system, under floor heating and some secondary and double glazing. There is a low maintenance courtyard garden and one allocated parking space in a gated courtyard. The house enjoys lovely, historic, central Sherborne outlooks extending to hills beyond. It is located at the top of Cheap Street - the main, pretty shopping centre of Sherborne - with its sought-after 'out -culture' and lovely selection of coffee shops, restaurants, gastro-pubs, boutiques and delicatessens. It is only a five minute walk to the historic Abbey and Alms-houses and the top, private Sherborne Boys and Girls schools. Sherborne Mainline station is only a ten minute walk away providing a direct rail link to London Waterloo in just over two hours. NO FURTHER CHAIN. INTERNAL VIEWING IS ESSENTIAL AS NO PHOTOGRAPHS OR FLOOR PLANS WILL EVER DO THIS PROPERTY JUSTICE!
