EPC Band C

George Street is a quiet backwater close to the bustling centre of Sherborne. No.8 is a stone built terraced cottage in the conservation area. It has been well maintained with recently installed central heating and a brand new shower room. The cottages were originally built for the ostlers who looked after the stage coach horses and this cottage retains its flag stone floors and panelling.

The charming accommodation comprises two individual reception rooms both with feature fireplaces and individual character features. The kitchen extension has a part glazed roof, flooding light into the back of the cottage. This room has ceramic floor tiles and farmhouse style units with wooden worktops, stainless steel sink, integrated electric oven and four ring gas hob. The newly installed shower room completes the ground floor accommodation with two double bedrooms to the first floor, both being bright and spacious, the front room has the original "baby cupboard".

The property has been in our vendors' ownership for many years. This is an ideal bolt hole for someone working in the city or downsizing to live within walking distance of all amenities Sherborne has to offer. It is easily managed with low running costs, but has enormous appeal and a homely atmosphere.

8 George Street lies to the centre of the historic Abbey town of Sherborne within a short step to Waitrose and many of the town's amenities that include the beautiful Abbey, a main line train station, two supermarkets, three doctors surgeries and a comprehensive range of shops, public houses and restaurants.
The local regional centre of Yeovil is within short motoring distance providing with Sherborne an excellent range of cultural, recreational and shopping facilities while the region is well known for sporting, walking and riding opportunities. Communication links are good with a main line station linking directly with London Waterloo while road links are along the A303 joined at Wincanton.

The garden is surprisingly long and easily maintained with a shed and mature hazel tree positioned at the end. Parking is possible in George Street and there is a car park behind the cottages with residents permits available at a reduced rate.
