SUBSTANTIAL 5 BEDROOM TOWN HOUSE..... GRADE II LISTED WITH PERIOD FEATURES .....IMMACULATE CONDITION.....LARGE REAR GARDEN.....TRIPLE GARAGE

Symonds & Sampson are delighted to bring to the market this substantial town house, located within a few minutes’ level walk of Cheap Street and the train station.

Dating back to c1650, and having a host of period features throughout, St Swithin’s Cottage is a truly charming Grade II Listed property. It is immaculately presented and has been a happy family home for the current owners for the past 20 years. During this time they have undertaken various modernising projects to ensure they are handing over a house in excellent condition.

Accommodation
On entering through the large front door one is immediately struck by the space and character of the house. The entrance has original flag stone flooring and plank and muntin screens. There is a large area to one side with wood block flooring and a charming fireplace. This area lends itself to a range of uses – be it a cosy sitting room, play area, dining room etc.

The drawing room is absolutely delightful, with a large feature fireplace housing a wood burner, beams, plank and muntin screen, window seats and wood block flooring.

The kitchen/dining room is the heart of the home, with the 3-oven Aga stove creating the welcoming atmosphere. The kitchen is fitted with a range of elm floor units with space and plumbing for the dishwasher. A wide counter opens to the dining area and from here double doors lead to the patio and garden beyond.

There is also a separate utility room and downstairs cloakroom.

Wide stairs lead from the drawing room to the gallery – a lovely bright spacious area. On this level are three bedrooms, all with their own charm and character, ample wardrobes and storage space. Also on this floor are two bathrooms. It should be noted that there is potential to create a further en-suite facility to Bedroom 4 if desired.

The stairway towards the front of the property leads to a substantial bedroom with original exposed beams and velux windows to the rear.

There is an additional stairway to the rear which leads to Bedroom 5, and a large, fully boarded loft area providing generous storage space.

Outside
One of the main features of St Swithin’s Cottage is the fabulous, south-facing, beautifully maintained garden, along with the pretty courtyard, paved patio, all-weather putting green, range of garden sheds and triple garage. The garden has a number of productive fruit trees, is fully enclosed with attractive stone walls, and has well-stocked borders. The paved path to the side leads to the garden stores and triple garage – such a rarity in central Sherborne.


As anyone who lives in Sherborne knows, Long Street is one of the most desirable streets in the vicinity of the main shops and train station.

Sherborne is well known for its excellent range of independent shops, along with 2 supermarkets, extensive sporting facilities, renowned schools (both independent and state), and direct train links to London Waterloo.
