Property Description

Key features


Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The Grey House is a stunning period property dating back to the 1800's and steeped in history. The current owners have undertaken various projects over the years to enhance the character - including the fitting of ornate radiators, maintaining the original flooring, installing old style light fittings and up-grading the sash windows. With curved walls, wide passageways and doors and original coving, the sense of history is all around.

Although situated in the heart of the village, the rear of the property has an extraordinary countryside feel, with far reaching views from the first floor.

There are some parts of the house that are more modernised than others, and it therefore offers wonderful potential to refurbish to ones own taste, style and requirements.


Steps lead to an attractive, wide front door that opens into an entrance passage, with a tiled floor. There are two front reception rooms with fireplaces. To the rear is a third reception room which has a completely different feel, with its fireplace and windows overlooking the cottage garden to the rear.

The kitchen, again, has an olde worlde feel with the oil fired Rayburn providing hot water and central heating. There is a range of fitted units and cupboards, belfast sink and space and plumbing for the dishwasher. There is a walk in pantry and a further storage area/walk through to the front reception room.

The utility room has a sink, wall and base units with space and plumbing for a washing machine and space for a tumble dryer. This area also houses a wc.

Stairs lead to the first floor landing with access to the bedrooms and bathrooms. The master bedroom is beautiful, with William Morris wall paper, original fireplace, fired earth sink and Victorian roll top bath with claw feet. There are original stripped pine floorboards and the sash window to the front overlooks the pretty village lane opposite. Bedroom two to the rear is another delightful room with wonderful views, and there are two further bedrooms on this level.

The bathroom is fitted with a corner bath, low level wc and vanity unit. There is a separate walk in wet room and a small storage room.

A door and narrow stairs lead to the attic where there is a large storage area and two further areas currently used as overflow bedrooms.


The Grey House is an exceedingly attractive property with flower beds to the front and steps to the front door. The rear garden is an irregular shape. It comprises a walled cottage garden with beds to the side, and two outbuildings. A door provides pedestrian access. A stone building defines the end of the cottage garden, alongside which a door and pathway lead to a second “secret garden”, much loved by the owners’ children over the years. Both gardens are crying out for a keen gardener to make the most of them.

Garaging: For sale under separate tender is a double garage block situated opposite the house - these are for sale for £40,000. Further details upon request.

The property is situated in the heart of Yetminster which has a range of amenities including a pub, village store, veterinary practise, train station and GP surgery. Yetminster is approximately 6 miles from the Abbey town of Sherborne with extensive shopping, excellent sports facilities, well-renowned schools and direct trains to London Waterloo.
