A wonderful four bedroom, semi-detached Edwardian house, with high ceilings and great proportions as one would expect from this period. Constructed of brick under a tiled roof, the property is set over three floors and given its south facing aspect, enjoys significant light throughout the principal rooms. The ground floor comprises an impressive double reception room which opens out into a lovely bay window, making the most of that light. Stripped wooden floors here set off the similar wooden doors and original fireplace with tiled surround, that is a feature and a focal point of this room. The kitchen lies to the rear of the house and is large, having been extended in recent years to now provide the ideal spot for a table and chairs for entertaining or feeding the family. This is a well-equipped room which incorporates shaker style base units under a wooden worktop with large Belfast sink. An impressive gas range cooker sits on one side along with space for a dishwasher and fridge freezer. There is even enough room in the kitchen for a sofa and various free standing units, which provide great colour and interest to this light and versatile space. French doors lead from this room out into the rear garden. A cloakroom and utility/storage can also be found on the ground floor. Upstairs the principal bedroom is located to the front of the house and benefits from excellent built in storage, stripped wooden floors, the large bay window and an ensuite, cream tiled shower room. Two further bedrooms, both with original fireplaces and one with built in wardrobes, are then serviced by a blue tiled family bathroom with stripped wooden flooring. Finally, on the second floor, is a fourth bedroom with Velux windows and access to eaves storage. The garden, which is accessed either from the kitchen or the reception room, is full of interest with various trees, well stocked borders and shrubs that surround a good sized lawned area. The garden is bounded by a wooden fence and also includes a small wooden shed to one end and terraced area nearer the house. To the front of the house steps lead up from the road past a small lawned area with shrubs, hedging and borders that all sit behind a stone wall. All things considered this is a light and bright house with well-proportioned rooms and a delightful garden, close to all the amenities of this increasingly popular Abbey town. Dominated by its ancient Abbey and school, Sherborne is arguably the most attractive town in Dorset. Numerous musical and cultural events occur throughout the year and there is a superb range of traditional shops and boutiques. The two castles - one of which was home to Sir Walter Raleigh - reflect the historic nature of the town, the centre of which is designated a Conservation Area in which a policy of strict planning control operates to preserve its special character. West Dorset is well known for its unspoilt landscape and there are many pretty villages and countryside walks nearby. The Jurassic coast is a mere twenty miles away at Weymouth. This stretch of coastline, from Portland to Lyme Regis, with its spectacular cliffs, has recently been designated a World Heritage Site. Communications to this part of the country are excellent. From Sherborne there is a regular train service to Waterloo in about 2 hours 15 minutes; the station is within walking distance. The A303 (linking with the M3) is a dual carriageway almost the whole way to the M3, thus putting London within about two hours' drive.
