5 Bedroom House For Sale

AMAZING OPPORTUNITY! The Yard House is a charming, natural stone, period, linked house situated in a fantastic 'tucked away' location just off Cheap Street - the beating heart and High Street of Sherborne town centre. This large property (2338 square feet) has been beautifully converted into two high-end cottages that have become lucrative holiday lets in the centre of this historic, picturesque Dorset town. The house has a paved patio courtyard garden and a driveway leading to a generous attached garage / workshop (23'3 x 12'10). The cottages retain many period character features including exposed beams, multi-pane windows, flagstone floors and excellent ceiling heights. However, the property is enviably free from the restrictions of Grade II listing. It is heated by a mains gas fired radiator central heating system and boasts some double and secondary glazing. Cottage 1 has accommodation comprising ground floor entrance hall and open plan kitchen sitting room. On the first floor there is a landing area, two double bedrooms and a shower room / WC. Cottage two comprises entrance hall, open-plan kitchen sitting room and ground floor double bedroom three. On the first floor, there is a a large landing area currently used as a second sitting room, master double bedroom with en-suite shower room / WC, second double bedroom and a first floor family bathroom. The two cottages are halls adjoining on the ground floor and also have an access door between the two linking the first floor landings. The property is tucked away in a special, hidden location accessed via an archway off Cheap Street, in the heart of the town centre and market square. The property is on the doorstep of the coveted high street with its buzzing, popular out-and-about culture, boutique stores, organic bakeries, coffee shops, restaurants, gastro-pubs and farmers market. Sherborne also boasts the breath-taking Sherborne Abbey building, Alms Houses, two historic castles and world-famous Sherborne private schools. It is also a very short, level walk to the mainline railway station in the centre of the town, making London Waterloo in just over two hours without changing your seat. The property is perfect for those buyers looking for the ideal Sherborne lifestyle or cash buyers moving from the South East or villages and looking for their perfect West Country home to settle in, potentially linked to the wonderful selection of local schools. It may also be of interest to the pied-a-terre, buy-to-let or holiday letting markets. THIS PROPERTY IS EXTREMELY RARE AND MUST BE VIEWED TO BE APPRECIATED. Please note: The current owners also own Hideaway House that is linked to The Yard House. This is a substantial town house has a huge walled garden and further triple garage. It is available to purchase separately for £1,250,000. Please ask the selling agent for more details.
