Full description

Double fronted detached three bedroom house in a popular location with huge potential.

EPC Band E.

42 St Catherines Crescent was believed to have been built in the 1970's as part of a select development on the west side of Sherborne and has brick elevations under a tiled roof and occupies one of the most elevated sites on the crescent, with far reaching views towards Sherboren Castle and Honeycombe Woods. The house is a handsome classic double fronted one with enormous possibilities. Many similar houses within the development have be substantially extended and it has been suggested, subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents, that there is huge potential for extension.

The property is conventionally arranged with an entrance lobby, off which there is a cloakroom, giving way to a central hallway from which the principal living rooms are accessed. On the right hand side of the hall there is a large sitting room that stretches from the front to the rear of the property with to one end doors onto the garden and to the centre a fireplace providing a focal point equipped with a gas effect fire. To the left hand side of the hallway to the front of the house there is a kitchen that is equipped with a comprehensive range of units and cupboards, behind which there is a dining room that looks over the rear garden. Upstairs there are three good bedrooms, the master of which being dual aspect with a built-in wardrobe, served by a family bathroom requiring modernisation. The property is in serviceable working order with gas fired central heating and double glazing but will require some modernisation over the coming years.

42 St Catherines Crescent lies to one corner of the ever popular residential development on the west side of the historic Abbey town of Sherborne. Sherborne is a particularly attractive town with a conservation area and an Abbey to its centre and amenities that include a main line train station, three doctors surgeries, a library, two supermarkets and a comprehensive range of shops, public houses and restaurants. The local regional centre of Yeovil lies within short motoring distance providing with Sherborne an excellent range of cultural, recreational and shopping facilities. Sporting, walking and riding opportunities abound within the area while the region is well known for both its public and privately funded schooling. Communication links are good with a main line station 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 house there is a substantial area of lawn with to the left hand side a driveway leading up to the garage 5.08m x 2.50m providing parking for a number of cars while the garage itself is equipped with an up & over door, light and power. To the rear of the property the gardens stretch out from the back of the house with a substantial area of paved terrace running the width giving way to the main body of the garden that is laid to lawn, with central terrace ornamental area and edged by mature herbaceous, shrub and tree borders.
