Kings Road, Sherborne

Sold STC £380,000

Property Description

Full description

A charming and distinctive detached family home situated in a popular area on the fringe of Sherborne yet within walking distance to the primary school, doctors surgery, nature reserve and the town centre itself. We believe that this striking home dates to the early 1900's and retains a host of characteristics related to the era which include sash bay window, picture rails and some exposed floor boards as well as very high ceilings. The property has been a well loved family home for the last seventeen years during which time it has been improved and maintained and is presented to the market offering comfortable and well proportioned rooms with a flexible usage. The property lends itself ideally as a young growing family home and equally an established family home with plenty of internal and external space. A viewing is imperative to truly appreciate just what this house has to offer.

In brief, the ground floor accommodation consists of entrance hall, sitting room with bay window and fireplace, family room with double doors opening to a large dining/garden room with utility space and sliding doors to the rear paved terrace. In addition there is the kitchen with range style cooker and downstairs cloakroom. On the first floor there is the landing with study area and access to the large loft space with potential, subject to the necessary permissions, to convert, a shower room and bathroom plus four generously sized bedrooms. To the rear there is a pleasant outlook over treetops to countryside. Outside there is parking for two cars and a good sized sunny and private rear garden.
