DO NOT BE DECEIVED! THIS HOUSE IS NOT SMALL! A beautifully finished and greatly extended link-detached house situated in a choice cul-de-sac address on the fringe of Sherborne town. Offering spacious (1240 square feet) and flexible four bedroom accommodation, this house must be viewed to be appreciated. It boasts a 'wow-factor' open-plan kitchen family room that opens on to the rear garden which, in turn, backs straight on to open fields. The generous rear garden enjoys a westerly aspect and is beautifully landscaped - benefitting from a paved patio area with large hot tub (included within the asking price) and large garden shed. At the front of the property there is a private driveway providing off road parking for two cars. The house is enhanced by gas fired radiator central heating and uPVC double glazing. The deceptively spacious accommodation comprises entrance hall, sitting room, open-plan kitchen family room, rear lobby, garden room, ground floor bedroom four/snug and ground floor shower room/WC. On the first floor there is a landing area, master bedroom with en-suite dressing/cot room, two further double bedrooms and a first floor family bathroom.  Local shops are only 100 metres away along with Abbey Primary School being within a short walking distance. Countryside walks are a short walking distance from the front door. It is only a short walk to the sought-after, historic town centre of Sherborne with its superb boutique high street with cafes, restaurants, Waitrose store and independent shops plus the breath-taking Abbey, Almshouses and Sherborne's world-famous private schools. It also has good access to the mainline railway station making London Waterloo in just over two hours.  This superb property is ideal for aspiring families making the most of the cheap mortgages available at the moment looking for somewhere pleasant to settle in this exceptional area. It also may appeal to the downsizing, pied-a-terre or holiday let/rental market from cash buyers cashing out of the South East or linked with the local private schools.
