Full description

An individual detached 4 bedroom home with planning permission for a separate dwelling. The property sits in grounds of over 1 acre on the edge of Sherborne and enjoys lovely views. EPC Band D.

The Property - Lynwood is a superb detached home which has much to offer a busy modern family and is situated in an elevated position between the popular market town of Sherborne and the commercial centre of Yeovil, with no near neighbours. Constructed less than ten years ago by the current owners, the property exhibits family-orientated accommodation with excellent facilities including under floor heating on the ground floor, en suite shower rooms to bedrooms 1 and 2 and versatile reception rooms which can be adapted to suit the needs of an incoming purchaser. It is clear that great attention to detail was paid during the build, with fine Hamstone used to create impressive elevations and high quality fixtures inside, such as the wooden flooring which stretches throughout the entire ground floor, and the property benefits from the remainder of a 10 year NHBC warranty.

Owing to the elevated position and the undulating geology of the surrounding countryside, Lynwood enjoys stunning, far-reaching rural views with both interior and exterior spaces arranged so this wonderful outlook can be enjoyed to it's fullest advantage. Double doors lead out from the breakfast area and sitting room onto a paved sun terrace, serving the dual purpose of ensuring that these spaces are full of natural light as well as providing marvellous opportunities to enjoy the views from a variety of vantage points and allowing a highly desirable indoor/outdoor lifestyle when weather allows. Upstairs, all four bedrooms have windows to the rear, offering the best internal viewpoints, whilst the two largest bedrooms also benefit from double doors onto the balcony which, with a south facing aspect, is a sun drenched and private place to sunbathe or recline al fresco with the most sunning of panoramas stretching far into the distance before you.

The reception rooms are thoughtfully arranged to provide exceptional spaces for any occasion. Arguably the centrepiece of the property, the kitchen is beautifully laid out with ample built-in units, including integrated fridge, freezer and dishwasher, organised around an LPG range cooker and a seating area comprising a breakfast bar island and a nook capable of accommodating a small sofa, creating a sociable hub in which families can convene and carry out individual tasks with a sense of togetherness. From here double doors open into the sitting room allowing these rooms to be joined to accommodate a crowd or separated to create more cloistered spaces as required. A comfortable and relaxing space, the sitting room benefits from an electric flame effect fire, providing a warming glow which is safe for the whole family in order to make this a room for all seasons, and the adjoining dining room enjoys windows to two aspects offering stunning views during meals, but could easily be adapted for use as a study or play room if desired.

The bedrooms are another fine feature which enhance the property's suitability for use as a family home; four double bedrooms are arranged around the first floor landing, as is a family bathroom. The two largest bedrooms both enjoy en suite shower rooms which are fitted with contemporary suites, and the master bedroom benefits from a dressing area with ample built-in wardrobes. Domestically, the property is well equipped to deal with the requirements of the busy modern family with an integrated washing machine and tumble dryer, and the adjoining boiler room with hot water tank is ideal for drying laundry. Additionally there is a cloakroom located off the entrance hall.

Outside - Lynwood is positioned near the centre of a generous, level plot amounting to over one acre and is therefore extremely private with a sweep of lawn dividing the house from the road. A gravelled driveway leads through electronic gates and culminates in a spacious parking and turning area at the rear of the property, providing parking for a number of vehicles. The gardens are open plan with areas of smooth lawn and a large paved sun terrace, creating an ideal environment for al fresco dining and entertaining whilst enjoying the stunning views. A further asset is the summer house which has thoughtfully been fitted with windows on all four sides to enable the views to be enjoyed, and lends itself to use as a games room or pavillion.

Although this property represents a fantastic, well rounded home as it appears today, there remains scope for additions to further improve the property's suitability for an even broader variety of purchasers. Planning permission is in place for a detached, 2 bedroom single storey annexe to be built with it's own garden and garage; the ideal opportunity for those requiring semi-independent living facilities for relatives or teenagers to construct and personalise ancillary accommodation. We also understand that planning permission is in place for a double garage to serve the main house.

Situation - The property is situated on the fringe of Sherborne, a highly sought after market town located in West Dorset which owes it's great popularity to a broad range of independent and national businesses on the high street, a direct rail link with London (Waterloo) and excellent state and independent schools for children of all ages. Attractions within the town include a historic abbey, Sherborne Castle, a swimming pool and sports centre and a Waitrose Supermarket, whilst slightly further afield are two Golf courses and a variety of additional amenities including a district hospital in the commercial centre of Yeovil.

Services - Mains water and electricity. Private drainage (septic tank). LPG gas central heating (underfloor at ground floor level).

Viewings - Strictly by appointment with the vendors' selling agents, Messrs. Stags, Yeovil Office, telephone 01935 475000.

Directions - From Sherborne follow the A30 towards Yeovil and turn left shortly after the crest of the hill.
From Yeovil take the A30 towards Sherborne and shortly after the turning to Nether Compton turn right onto the driveway. Please note that, even at busier times, natural gaps appear in oncoming traffic due to traffic lights a short distance along the road.
