Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Rosemount is an impressive modern house built in the late 1980s as part of a prestigious cul-de-sac development on the western side of Sherborne. In recent years the property has undergone a comprehensive programme of extension and upgrade, and is now fitted to a luxurious standard in line with twenty-first century expectations. The extension has enabled the creation of "the big room" which forms the heart and focal point of the house. Travertine floors and tiling feature extensively throughout the property, accentuating the feeling of light and space. The big family room has French casements leading directly out to a large hard landscaped barbeque and entertaining area, which catches the evening sun. The ground floor features an impressive hallway with a double galleried landing above, and from here glazed double doors open into a well proportioned Sitting Room with a polished marble fireplace and Living Flame fire. There is a bay window with window seat, and lockers. The ground floor is topped up with a useful utility room which has direct access to the double garage, and a cloakroom.

The first floor accommodation can be used in a number of formats, either as five bedrooms as originally intended, or as at present, three bedrooms with bedrooms four and five being used as a music room and study. All rooms feature quality fitted furniture providing extensive wardrobes, fitted dressing and drawer units and in the case of the music room, and study, fitted storage and desktop spaces. In common with the ground floor, the lighting has all been upgraded to flush fitting down lighters. The principal bedroom has a beautifully fitted ensuite shower room, the guest bedroom has an ensuite shower room also, and there is a family bathroom complete with a Jacuzzi.

Rosemount offers twenty-first century living with an emphasis on quality and light throughout.

At the front of the house, there is paving and parking in front of the integral double garage, with electrically operated doors. A shallow flight of steps leads up the front door, which is flanked by classical columns supporting a wide canopy with a classical style moulding. The steps are flanked by lawn, focused on a weeping Birch. Most of the garden lies to the rear, where a large paved entertaining and barbeque area, with lighting and power overlooks the principal sweep of lawn enclosed high fencing and a screen of shrubs and trees. The garden is orientated so as to take advantage of the afternoon and evening sunshine.
