A handsome double fronted two bedroom cottage with delightful cottage garden, situated right in the heart of Sherborne. NO ONWARD CHAIN.
5 South Street is a wonderful period cottage with an enviable location in the heart of Town and in level walking distance of an excellent range of amenities. The cottage has attractive natural stone elevations under a slate roof and is free from any listed restrictions. The property is double fronted and is deceptively spacious with surprisingly high ceilings and a rear extension, and unlike other properties of its kind, the cottage has an upstairs bathroom as well as a ground floor shower room.
Upon entering the cottage you cannot fail to be impressed by the striking sitting room which runs the width of the property and is enhanced by excellent ceiling heights and a central staircase. The sitting room is laid to attractive oak flooring and has windows with shutters on either side of the room as well as two feature fireplaces, one of which is open and currently has an electric wood effect burning stove. The reception space could be configured with a sitting area to one side and a dining area to the other side which flows naturally through to the kitchen/breakfast room. The kitchen is arranged with a breakfast room to one side and a kitchen to the other side and has an abundance of natural light from skylights and double doors which lead out to a paved terrace. The kitchen is fitted with a comprehensive range of wall and base cupboards, and is very well equipped with integrated appliances which include a fridge/freezer, dishwasher, eye level double electric oven, electric hob with extractor hood over and a white ceramic 1 1/2 ½ bowl sink and drainer. To one side of the kitchen a door provides access to the shower room which has a shower cubicle, wc, small Belfast sink and also serves as a utility area with space and plumbing for a washing machine and dryer, and houses the gas fired boiler. The breakfast area can accommodate a good sized table and enjoys lovely views over the garden.
On the first floor there are two bedrooms, the main bedroom has a double aspect and has a fitted wardrobe and both are served by a family bathroom which has a pea shaped bath with shower over, wc, basin and a heated towel rail.
The property lies to the centre of the historic Abbey town of Sherborne within excellent level walking distance of many of the town's amenities which include the Abbey, a main line train station, three doctors' surgeries, two supermarkets and a comprehensive range of shops, public houses and restaurants. Golf clubs are located at both Sherborne and Yeovil while the region is well known for both its public and privately funded schooling. Communication links are good with the main line station linking directly with London Waterloo while road links are along the A303 joined at Wincanton giving swift access to London and the Home Counties along the M3, M25 route.
The generous cottage garden to the rear is an absolute delight and is such a tranquil place to relax, dine and entertain. There is a paved terrace which abuts the breakfast room and provides a perfect seating area and steps lead onto a garden laid to lawn which has shrub and tree planting and a pathway to one side. The garden is secure and fully enclosed and has a pretty summerhouse at the bottom.
