4 Bedroom Semi-Detached House For Sale

‘Camelot’ is a simply beautiful, deceptively spacious (1927 square feet), extended, semi-detached, period town house retaining many elegant character features from the period including impressive ceiling heights, full height bay windows, sash windows and period balustrades but blending these features with an eclectic mix and boasting breath-taking open-plan, contemporary living space and a huge open-plan kitchen family room with high-end bespoke DeVol kitchen. The house is enviably free from the restrictions of Grade II listing and yet in the shadow of Sherborne Abbey and the central conservation area heart of the town. The house enjoys a west-facing rear garden that catches the afternoon and evening sun, arranged for low maintenance purposes. It enjoys a good level of privacy. The house has been significantly enhanced and extended recently by the current owner with no expense spared. It stands in one of the best addresses in Sherborne – a very short walk to Sherborne town centre, Waitrose Store and Mainline railway station to London Waterloo. The property is heated via a mains gas-fired central heating system with wet under floor heating throughout the ground floor and radiators on the first floor. The house offers tremendous scope to convert the large loft area, subject to the necessary planning permission (planning permission formerly granted). The well-arranged, flexible accommodation boasts good levels of natural light and comprises entrance reception hall, large sitting room / dining room, ‘wow-factor’ open-plan kitchen / family room, utility room and ground floor WC / Cloakroom. On the first floor there is a large split-level landing area, master double bedroom with full height bay window and en-suite shower room, three further generous bedrooms and first floor family bathroom. The sought-after, historic town centre of Sherborne is on your doorstep with its superb boutique high street and cafes, restaurants, Waitrose store and independent shops plus the breath-taking Abbey, Almshouses and Sherborne's world-famous private schools. It also is a very short walk to the mainline railway station making London Waterloo in just over two hours. This property is ideal for aspiring families looking for somewhere pleasant to settle in this exceptional area.
