A prestige two bedroom apartment situated in the heart of the town with fabulous views towards the Abbey and wealth of character features. Car Port & Parking. No onward chain.



Flat 6 Johnson's Courtyard is positioned at the heart of Sherborne a short step from the Abbey, the thoroughfare of Cheap Street and main line station. The property is Grade II Listed and forms part of the stunning late 18th century building with Georgian features to include sash windows, moulded architraves, natural stone elevations under a slate roof. The building was converted into apartments in the late 1990's retaining much of the charm and character internally that you would come to expect from this age of property. Access to the first floor apartment is via a grand ground floor reception lobby with entrance intercom system, beautiful exposed flagstone flooring, exposed alcoves and excellent decoration, testament to the excellent upkeep of the management company. An imposing staircase provides access to the apartment and upon entering flat 6 you are immediately greeted with a wide and welcoming hallway off which access is provided to both the bedrooms and living accommodation. The heart of the home is undoubtedly the sitting/dining room, a most spacious and elegant room with high ceilings, ornate coving, ceiling rose and feature brick fireplace with stone hearth. The L-shape layout of this beautiful room further provides a useful study area with three sash windows allowing light to fill the room and for residents to enjoy the marvellous views towards the Abbey. The accommodation flows well with ease of access from the sitting/dining room into the fitted kitchen, complemented with a range of base and wall units, ceramic twin bowl drainer, ample space for fridge/freezer, plumbing for washing machine and electric oven inset with extractor over. The bedrooms are of particular note being of excellent double proportions, both benefiting from fitted wardrobes and ease of access to the bathroom with a wood panelled bath, walk-in shower, WC and pedestal sink unit.

6 Johnson's Courtyard lies to the centre of the historic Abbey town of Sherborne within level walking distance of many of the towns amenities which include the Abbey, a main line train station, three doctors surgeries, two supermarkets and a comprehensive range of shops, public houses and restaurants. Sporting, walking and riding opportunities abound within the area with golf clubs at both Sherborne and Yeovil while the region is well known for both its public and privately funded schooling. Communication links are good with the 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.

The apartment benefits from the most precious of Sherborne commodities, off street parking and a most useful car port are located at the entrance to the Johnson's Courtyard development. A communal refuse store is located opposite the car port.
