Property Description

A GLIMPSE OF SHERBORNE ABBEY! A deceptively spacious (1023 square feet), three bedroom, terraced modern house situated in a very popular, 'tucked away' cul-de-sac position very near the heart of Sherborne. The property benefits from a generous rear garden and large timber studio. There is a single garage in a block nearby as well as residents parking spaces. The house offers scope for extension at the rear, subject to the necessary planning permission. The house is enhanced by uPVC double glazing and gas fired radiator central heating. In the property, the spacious, well presented accommodation comprises entrance reception hall, sitting room, kitchen/breakfast room and downstairs WC. On the first floor there is a landing area, three generous bedrooms (one enjoying a glimpse of Sherborne Abbey) and a first floor family shower room. The property is a short, level walk to the popular, 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 is just a short drive away. It is also a short walk to the mainline railway station to London Waterloo. The property is perfect for those couples making the most of the cheap mortgages available at the moment, buyers cashing out of the South East and London market or cash buyers looking for their perfect pied-a-terre or retirement home to settle in, potentially linked to the wonderful selection of local private schools. It may also be of interest to the residential letting or holiday letting market. THIS PROPERTY MUST BE VIEWED TO BE APPRECIATED. NO FURTHER CHAIN.
