THE PROPERTY

Forming the major part of a private house in 1710, known as Angel House, this delightful grade II listed four bedroom property has also seen life as an old coaching inn and boarding house for Sherborne schools. Retaining a significant amount of the original, historical charm with exposed stone walls, feature fireplaces, large flagstone floors and characterful wood beams, the property was in fact the subject of a significant programme of cleverly considered upgrades and modifications by an experienced team of developers back in 2010. Thoughtful and sympathetic conversion of this and neighbouring properties has converted number 1 The Old Green into a fabulous and versatile house with flexible accommodation over four storeys. The basement level was converted more recently into a habitable and exciting space with underfloor heating, a large cinema room, complete with audio visual system, an attractively finished and fitted second kitchen and a separate shower room. As well as being the perfect teenage hangout, it would also double as a very workable annex for lodgers or dependant relatives. The beautiful flagstone flooring, exposed beams and stonework along with the impressive inglenook fireplace with bressummer beam above ensure the character of this flexible area prevails. From entry on the ground floor the first impressions are of a large, bright hallway with wooden floors and stairs that lead to the adjoining floors and to the kitchen and living room. The noticeably bright and light kitchen has space for a large dining table and chairs. It has excellent storage, with a multitude of fitted cupboards and shelves, shaker style wall and base units under wooden work surfaces, wooden oak floors, exposed Ham stone chimney breast and a large sash window looking towards Greenhill. Included is, an integrated Neff dishwasher, Smeg fridge/freezer, a 6-burner gas Rangemaster oven and a dresser unit. A door leads seamlessly from this excellent well-appointed kitchen into the beautifully presented living room of good proportions and pleasing ceiling heights. Highlights include the dual aspect, with lovely sash windows and plantation shutters ensuring this room is flooded with light. The natural flooring provides a relatively contemporary feel whilst a gas flame fireplace ensures a warm ambience during those cooler winter months. A period style staircase rises from the hall to the first floor, where there is a large principal bedroom fitted with wardrobes and a delightful sash window and seat, looking across the town. The ensuite shower room incorporates a white suite, low level WC, two fitted wash basins, large vanity mirrors and further storage. Additionally on this floor is a double bedroom, an airing cupboard, and a separate family bathroom with low level wc, wash basin and bathtub. The top floor comprises two individual characterful bedrooms with exposed beams set off against neutral toned walls and carpets. A further bathroom with fitted low level wc, wash basin and bathtub along with additional storage and bookshelves are to be found here. 1 The Old Green is a beautifully presented and decorated house that offers eminently versatile space in a hugely convenient location. OutsIde An individual parking space is located inside the main courtyard by the entrance to the private railed, sheltered and paved garden , exclusive to No 1 The Old Green and providing an ideal spot from which to enjoy a spot of al fresco dining. 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.
