Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Dating back to the 1800's with a modern extension, this delightful cottage retains much charm and character and is ideally situated in the heart Sherborne.

Ground Floor
A shared entrance lobby off Westbury leads to a private front door to the cottage. Entering the property via an entrance hallway, the sitting room has a characterful wooden beam and log burner. A large window and neutral décor makes the room light and spacious. Adjoining the sitting room is the kitchen/dining room. This is a beautifully presented area with considerable light and lovely outlook to the garden. It is well fitted with integrated Bosch appliances including dishwasher, fridge and Baumatic LPG hob, electric oven and grill. The dining area is an ideal space for entertaining and has double doors that lead into the garden.

First Floor
The landing has an airing cupboard with a water tank that is 8 years old and an immersion heater that is just over two years old. Bedroom one is a delightful, bright room with a built in heated wardrobe, further storage cupboard and room for freestanding furniture. Bedroom two is a dual aspect room again having a built in heated wardrobe and potential for a balcony overlooking the garden. The bathroom is fitted with a walk in shower, W.C and wash hand basin.

To the side of the property there is a log store area, a useful stone built outbuilding with light and power, and adjoining WC with hot water and heated towel rail. This area has plenty of potential for development (subject to planning). There is a small patio area off the kitchen and steps lead onto the lawn.

The garden is a fabulous feature of the cottage, being a very good size, fully enclosed by attractive stone wall and enjoying a good degree of privacy. It is laid mainly to lawn with a number of flower beds, mature shrubs and trees. At the end of the garden is a raised bed area ideal for growing herbs and vegetables. Alternatively there is potential to put up a studio or home office (subject to consent).

A major selling point of this cottage is its wonderful location, situated within a 2 minute walk of Sherborne Abbey.

It has easy access to all of Sherborne's shops and facilities, including a good range of boutique shops, 2 supermarkets, sports facilities and the railway station which is on the direct line to London Waterloo.

Sherborne is well known for its excellent schools, both independent and state. Yeovil, which is 6 miles away, has a good choice of larger stores, supermarkets and industrial estates.

There is good access to the A303 for road links to Exeter and London.
