Full description

A four bedroom detached house with outstanding countryside views from the rear with off street parking and garage. EPC Band D.


Askwith Close was built in the 1980’s of brick elevations under a tiled roof and has been extended by the present owner with the addition of a garden room which is seamlessly integrated into the living space at the rear with bi-fold doors designed to take full advantage of the beautiful views over the garden and countryside beyond.
The property is tucked away to one corner of the development and free from passing traffic and has undoubtedly some of the very best views in Sherborne.
Internally the accommodation is arranged off an entrance hall with a sitting room to the front which has an attractive bay window and a focal stone effect electric fire to the centre. Beyond the sitting room and the real heart of the home; is the dining, kitchen and garden room. The dining room can accommodate a large table and flows into the garden room which is an ideal space to enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the setting amongst countryside. The kitchen has been updated with a range of wall and base units and there is a large understairs cupboard which is currently used as a very useful larder cupboard fitted with shelving. There is space for a dishwasher, and a gas oven. Besides the kitchen a utility room provides space for a washing machine and a dryer and gives access to the garden and the garage.
Returning to the hall, there is a cloakroom and stairs rise to the first floor landing which has three bedrooms, two of which are doubles and benefit from excellent built in wardrobes. The bedrooms are served by a contemporary family bathroom fitted with white sanitary ware and a shower over the bath. The master bedroom is located on the second floor and really has a wow factor. There is a large dormer window which has almost panoramic views of outstanding countryside, and there are built in cupboards, eaves storage and an ensuite shower.
The property overall has been very well maintained, has gas fired central heating, UPVC double glazed windows and doors, UPVC cladding to the exterior joinery and replacement fibre glass roofs to the flat roof utility and dormer window.

7 Askwith Close lies on the west side of Sherborne itself with its gardens facing both south and west taking the sun throughout much of the day. Askwith Close lies to the west side of the historic Abbey town of Sherborne within short walking distance of some local shops and within comfortable walking distance of the town centre itself. The town has a range of amenities which include a main line station linking directly with London Waterloo, the Abbey, two supermarkets, two doctors surgeries and an excellent cross section of shops, public houses and restaurants. The local regional centre of Yeovil lies within short motoring distance and provides with Sherborne a good range of cultural, recreational and shopping facilities.

To the front of the property, a bloc paved driveway provides ample parking for three and leads to the garage which has an electric up and over door, power and light. A side gate provides access to the rear garden which is laid to lawn with shrub and flower borders. A paved terrace immediately abuts the rear garden room, a perfect place to dine alfresco and take in the wonderful views and tranquillity. The garden has a south west orientation, is enclosed by timber and post and wire fencing and has a summerhouse which is equipped with power and light, TV aerial and telephone point and could be utilised as a home office or a playroom.
