THE PROPERTY

THE PROPERTY Constructed of the iconic, local Hamstone under a tiled roof this three bedroom period property stands proud in the centre of this thriving town, surrounded by similarly charming and in many cases Listed properties. The Cott, however, is free from any Listing constraints and provides the perfect opportunity for the new owner to realise its full potential. With a recent, previous life as a boarding house and part of the Sherborne Schools portfolio, the building would now make a wonderful family house or possible rental investment. Whilst well presented, it would certainly benefit from some modernisation and upgrading throughout. Set over three floors in total, the ground floor, notable for its good light, is comprised of both a sitting room and dining room, positioned to the front of the property. Decoration is simple and predominantly neutral in tone, with white washed walls and cream carpets. Through the dining room and to the rear of the property is the kitchen with a good number of white wall and base units, laminate worktops, electric oven and hob, fridge, washing machine and vinyl floor. Access from the kitchen is given to the rear courtyard. Stairs lead up from the front door to the first floor where there are two excellent double bedrooms with storage, one of which enjoys a dual aspect ensuring the feeling of space and light continues. Secondary glazing has been installed to provide additional comfort here and in most rooms throughout the property. To the rear is a cloakroom. A further, large double bedroom can be found on the second floor along with a useful storage cupboard and large family bathroom, with white low level wc, basin and bath with shower over. Access from here is also given to the loft. With no onward chain, this is an exciting opportunity to own a significant, landmark property in an extremely convenient location that would make a wonderful principal or holiday home, or even rental investment, in a very convenient location close to Waitrose supermarket and all the other excellent shops, cafés and restaurants in this pretty town centre. OUTSIDE To the rear is an enclosed, walled and paved courtyard garden. The property has no private parking, however there are various long and short term parking options available nearby. SITUATION 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 ¼ hours; 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.
