Property description

Tenure: Freehold

A beautifully restored Georgian listed townhouse close to the centre of Shaftesbury. Listed Grade II and most probably dating from the early nineteenth century, 5 Bimport is an impressive green sandstone attached property under a slate roof. The property has characteristics typical of the era with large sash windows, generously proportioned rooms, wood strip flooring and fine open fireplaces.

The current owner has undertaken a comprehensive programme of refurbishment including a new heating sytem and pressurised plumbing systems for both basement and upper floors. Other works have included electrical rewiring throughout and redecoration, together with a new hand built kitchen, AGA, and bathrooms. It has been run as a successful Bed and Breakfast from the two lower ground floor rooms which have been finished to a particularly high standard.

Houses of this calibre, close to the centre of Shaftesbury are few and far between and offer an exciting opportunity for prospective purchaser.

The property is approached off Bimport through a iron gate flanked by dwarf stone walls with iron railings to the front door. By car the property is approached via Toby’s Court to a large carport, half of which is covered and provides parking for two/three cars. The garden which is a real delight lies to the rear of 5 Bimport and is approached from the house onto a paved path leading to a terrace flanked by a colourful flower and shrub borders. The garden is largely walled and leads to a lawned area with further terrace with brick raised flower beds with sweet peas, roses and apple tree. There are a wide variety of colourful plants and trees including fig, fuschia, bay, hydrangeas, plum, apple, yew, hostas together with a variety of colourful tubs. There is a useful stone outbuilding currently used as a workshop with light and power.

Shaftesbury, a Saxon hilltop town which dates back to the times of Alfred the Great who founded the Abbey in the 9th century, has a good range of facilities. These include cafes, restaurants, niche retailers, a boutique hotel, banks, supermarket, a small hospital, library, health centre and an arts centre. More comprehensive facilities can be found in the Cathedral city of Salisbury to the east, the Georgian spa town of Bath to the north and Sherborne to the west. There are mainline railway stations at both Gillingham and Tisbury (London Waterloo) and the A303 lies some 8 miles to the north, giving access to the south west and London, via the M3.
