8 Chapel Meadow is one of eight properties built in the mid 1990's and has handsome stone elevations under a slate roof. The house has been built with a traditional look contrast to many of the period properties to the centre of Yetminster the property has all the cost saving insulation qualities one would expect of a property built just twenty years ago.

The accommodation is arranged around a spacious hallway on the ground floor and an equally light and bright landing above with on the right hand side of the house a spacious drawing room that stretches from the front to the rear of the property with sliding double doors to one end looking over the terrace and gardens behind and an attractive and imposing marble fireplace as a focal point to its centre that is equipped with a coal effect gas fire. Immediately behind the hallway there is a dining room that has double doors that open out into the sitting room making it ideal for entertaining on a large scale when needed and to the front of the hall there is access to a study to one side and a cloakroom to the other. On the left hand side of the hall there is a door through to the kitchen that is equipped with a comprehensive range of floor and wall mounted units and cupboards with integral appliances to include an electric double ovens and a ceramic hob with space for a fridge/freezer and a dishwasher. To the centre of the kitchen there is more than enough space for a farmhouse everyday dining table while to the other end of the kitchen a door leads through to the double garage that has a utilities area to the rear that is currently organised with plumbing for a washing machine and a point for both a tumble dryer and a freezer. Upstairs there are four good bedrooms three of which share a family bathroom that has a thermostatically controlled shower over the bath while the principal bedroom has a dressing area, and en-suite shower room equipped with a double sized shower with the main bedroom having extensive built-in wardrobe space. The property is in good decorative order throughout, oil fired heating (the boiler is located in the garage), also has the benefit of cavity wall insulation, has a burglar alarm system and useful storage space in the roof which is accessed via a loft ladder.

8 Chapel Court lies in a quiet backwater to the centre of the popular and attractive village of Yetminster that has a conservation area to its centre made up of period houses and an unusual number of amenities including a Spar supermarket, a public house, a primary school, a health centre, a train halt and is on a bus route while both the local regional centre and the historic Abbey town of Sherborne lie within short motoring providing between them an excellent range of cultural, recreational and shopping facilities. Sporting, walking and riding opportunities abound within the area with many walks to be had from the village itself while the region is well known for both its public and privately funded schooling. Communication links are good with the train station at Yetminster on the Weymouth to Bristol line, a 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 front of the property a stone path leads up to the front door with areas of lawn punctuated by mature herbaceous and shrub planting either side. To the left hand side of the house there is a further area of lawn beyond which there is a hard stand that provides parking and leads up to the double garage that is equipped with twin up and over doors one of which is equipped with a remotely operated electric opening device. The garage itself is equipped with light & power and has a door out onto the garden behind. The rear garden is particularly attractive and was created by the well known local garden designer, Nick Williams-Ellis, and is made up of a series of attractive herbaceous and shrub beds surrounded by paving designed to give shape and colour throughout the year and be relatively maintenance free. Beside the garage there is a utilities area that has a timber garden shed beyond which there is a lockable gate that gives access to Chapel Meadow while to the other side of the house there is a screened area within which there is both the gas tanks for the coal effect fire and the oil tank for the central heating.
