Full description

An impressive four bedroom detached house on the edge of Yetminster benefiting from ample driveway parking, garage, gardens, business unit and paddock.
No onward chain. EPC Band C.

Oakleigh is an individual detached home which has been sympathetically extended over the years to provide generous bedroom and living accommodation all sat within a generous plot measuring approximately 1.15 acres. The property is positioned on quiet no through road on the edge of the village with views to the rear of the gardens, paddock and countryside beyond. The ground floor provides a wealth of family accommodation comprising a welcoming entrance porch, large L shape sitting room centred around a focal brick fireplace with stone hearth and oak mantle. The fitted kitchen is centrally located within the home with easy access to the most useful utility and cloakroom. The fitted kitchen has been finished to a high standard with a comprehensive range of base and wall units, solid granite worktops and various integral appliances to include a six ring range cooker, fridge and wine cooler to name but a few. The rear outlook can be enjoyed from two rear reception rooms, a beautiful family room with oak flooring and doors out onto the rear decking and through to the garden room, a beautiful bright space with a continuation oak flooring and Velux roof lights with fitted remote operated blinds. Upstairs the property offers four double bedrooms, the principal bedroom and guest suite both benefiting from en-suite shower facilities with the principal bedroom suite tastefully finished with a Juliette balcony from which to take in the wonderful rear countryside views. The family bathroom completes the first floor accommodation comprising a pedestal sink unit, panelled bath with power shower over, WC, heated towel rail and tiled flooring. The property has been fitted with double glazing throughout with underfloor heating running through the property.

Oakleigh lies in a quiet backwater to the centre of the popular and attractive village of Yetminster that has a conservation area to its centre made up of period houses and an unusual number of amenities including a Spar supermarket, a public house, a primary school, a health centre, a train halt and is on a bus route while both the local regional centre and the historic Abbey town of Sherborne lie within short motoring providing between them an excellent range of cultural, recreational and shopping facilities. Sporting, walking and riding opportunities abound within the area with many walks to be had from the village itself while the region is well known for both its public and privately funded schooling. Communication links are good with the train station at Yetminster on the Weymouth to Bristol line, a main line station at Sherborne 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 location and plot size are a key salient feature of this property and being located on a no through road the tranquillity and privacy is immediately apparent on your approach to the property. To the front of the property vehicular access provides driveway parking for a number of cars and access to the garage with up and over door and pedestrian side access. Oakleigh sits to the front of its plot with a rear yard area providing access to the commercial unit which in the past has operated as a successful farm shop and currently has A1 business use. This unit subject to necessary consents has great potential for a number of alternative uses to include the possibility of annexe or holiday let accommodation. Oakleigh benefits from a formal rear garden with lawned area and decking from which to relax and unwind. Beyond the formal gardens is a pond which is fenced and secure with a paddock beyond measuring approximately 1 acre.
