Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Coming on the market for the first time in over 18 years, this is a wonderful opportunity to obtain a good size bungalow set in just over 11 acres with outstanding views, all within a 20 minutes countryside walk to Sherborne. Although the bungalow would benefit from some modernising and updating, it will ultimately provide a fabulous family home with its own land around.

Accommodation
The front door leads into a spacious entrance hall with plenty of room for boots, coats etc.

The kitchen/breakfast room is a good size and divided with a wide archway. The kitchen is fitted with a range of floor and wall units under work surfaces. There is a central island with units below, an integral double oven and gas hob, a double sink unit, space for fridge, and space and plumbing for dish washer.

The breakfast room has a wonderful, large picture window making the most of the far reaching views and enjoying an array of birdlife which come to the area for feeding. There is plenty of space for a good size kitchen table. The sitting room has a large freestanding wood burner, in addition to
an open fireplace. Sliding double doors lead into the south facing conservatory catching the morning sun, which in turn warms up the whole house. From here are further double doors to the garden.

The dining room is a good size with a window to the rear and large cupboard.

The master bedroom is a fabulous size room with fitted wardrobes and views over the land and hills in the distance. The bathroom was recently refurbished and comprises bath, large shower cubicle, low level wc, vanity unit and heated towel rail.

There are 3 further double bedrooms, one with a range of shelves and units to one wall, and another with a fitted wardrobe. The family bathroom is fitted with a bath, shower cubicle, pedestal wash hand basin and low level wc.

There is a utility room with space and plumbing for the washing machine, boiler providing heating and hot water and large coats cupboard.

Outside
Entrance to the plot is through a wrought iron double gate where there is ample parking and turning area and further access through
double gates to the driveway leading to the double garage. This has 2 up and over doors, light and power.

There are a range of outbuildings including purpose built kennels of concrete construction and a wood framed cattery, both with concrete floors and benefiting from mains water and electric. There is also a wood framed stable block again with concrete floor, serviced by mains water and electric. The range of buildings are well suited for their intended purpose, and have scope for alternative use subject to the necessary planning consents. In addition to these buildings there is a summerhouse, 2 greenhouses and a log store.

The land is all permanent pasture with high amenity/wildlife value and is currently grazed with sheep. There are no Basic Payment Scheme entitlements with the land and the land is not registered for any environmental schemes.


Where else can one purchase a bungalow set on an 11.19 acre site within 1 mile of Sherborne – a 20 minutes countryside walk? The house is situated on a very quiet country lane with little passing traffic, no neighbour for over a quarter of a mile and yet less than ¼ of a mile from the Marston Magna road, from where there are excellent road links to the A303 and A30.

Sherborne itself is an extremely popular Abbey town with an excellent range of independent shops, cafes and restaurants, along with sports facilities connected to the 2 schools.

The local schooling is well regarded, be it independent or the local government school – The Gryphon.

There are direct trains from Sherborne to London Waterloo (2 hrs, 20 mins) and Exeter.
