EPC Band D

Woodstock lies in the Bradford Road one of Sherborne's most sought after roads, is believed to have been built in the 1930's and has brick elevations under tiled roof. What marks out Woodstock from many houses that have come to the market in the Bradford Road over the last few years is its position which lies on the south side of the road allowing the sun to be enjoyed across the back of the house for the whole day. The house sits in the front third of the plot with a large driveway to the front and a rear garden that sweeps away to the south. Given the way the property is positioned and subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents it has been suggested that the house could be substantially extended on either side or to the rear and still sit comfortably within its plot.

The house itself has "an arts and crafts" feel to it with the attractive brick elevations contrasting with the timbered middle section of the house and the tiled roof. The house is arranged with an entrance hall giving way to a central hallway from which the main living areas of the house are accessed. There is a sitting room to the right hand side which flows through to a garden room, a formal dining room to the centre and a kitchen and a utility room to the left hand side. Both the drawing room and the dining room have attractive stone fireplaces as their focal points with the dining room having double doors onto the terrace behind and the drawing room having double doors into the garden room. The kitchen is equipped with a comprehensive range of floor and wall mounted units and cupboards and integral appliances to include a gas hob and an electric double oven and a dishwasher while in the utility room there is a gas fired boiler. Upstairs there are four good bedrooms the principal of which has an en-suite bathroom, a walk-in wardrobe and a number of further wardrobes while the three remaining bedrooms share a family bathroom. The fourth bedroom is currently being used as a study. The property is in good working order however it is likely a new owner will want to update. The property has gas fired central heating, is for the most part double glazed and has an intruder alarm system.

Woodstock lies on the west side of Sherborne in the Bradford Road one of Sherborne's most prestigious residential roads. Sherborne is an historic Abbey town with the Abbey and a conservation area to its centre and amenities that include a main line station, three doctors surgeries, a library and a comprehensive range of shops, public houses and restaurants. The local regional centre of Yeovil lies within short motoring distance and provides with Sherborne an excellent range of cultural, recreational and shopping facilities with golf courses at both Sherborne and Yeovil.
Communication links are good with 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 gated entrance gives way to a substantial area of driveway providing parking for a substantial number of cars and access to the double garage that is equipped with an electric remotely operated up and over door. On either side of the drive there are substantial borders planted to bulbs, shrubs, herbaceous plants and mature trees designed to give shape, colour and form throughout the year. To the right hand side of the house and there is a seating area with a large ornamental pond beside while to the rear of the property a substantial paved terrace stretches the width of the house providing an attractive outside entertaining area during the summer months. The terrace is edged by mature yew hedge with to the centre stone steps that lead down to the main body of the garden that is for the main part laid to lawn punctuated by mature specimen trees with shrub planting to the sides. Behind the garage there is a screened greenhouse while to the end of the garden a screened area serves as a composting/utilities area. The gardens are enclosed by mature hedge and timber fencing.
