Full description

Tenure: Freehold

An outstanding residence, beautifully fitted and presented throughout providing very well appointed and light accommodation all set within a landscaped half acre garden in one of Sherborne's best tree lined residential roads.

West Dene has brick elevations under a tiled roof to hip design. It dates from the 1960's and was acquired by the present owners about ten years ago. Since then it has undergone a comprehensive programme of restoration, extension, modernisation and re-fitting, the result being an outstanding house incorporating a blend of art deco, mid 20th Century and contemporary living. A particularly attractive theme which runs through the whole house is that of the original restored floors, architraves, doors, window cills and staircase which for the most part are of oak, this feature gives a warmth and quality to the interior using materials that would be hard to replicate at current day prices. Attention to detail is illustrated by way of the refurbishment of the original skirting radiators which serve the principal reception rooms and bedrooms. All of this blends with art deco style fittings and sanitary ware and a kitchen breakfast room which befits 21st Century living.

One of the bedrooms is located on the ground floor and served by a well fitted shower room which doubles as a cloakroom. On the first floor there is a principal bedroom suite with its own lobby. Also on the first floor is an oak floored sitting room which has French casements giving on to a south facing balcony from which there are views across the town to hills and woods on the Dancing Hill escarpment.

Double gates set on stone pillars open to a good tarmac drive leading to an unusually large parking and turning area to the side of the house, in turn this gives access to a detached double garage and workshop with electric doors, its own sink with hot and cold water, power and light.

The gardens, which extend to about half an acre have been professionally landscaped with an Italianate garden at the front and a wide terrace giving on to a main sweep of lawn at the rear shaped by well stocked and colourful borders. To one side of the lawn is an impressive entertaining area with hexagonal gazebo looking down a terrace with central water feature together with underfloor lighting flanked on either side by a seating area and planters. Beyond this is a screened fruit and vegetable garden with greenhouse and potting shed. To one side of the house there is even an artificial turfed practice putting area with several holes and a borrow.
