Property Details

A delightful semi detached chalet home with three bedrooms, boasting fabulous views over the allotments and countryside beyond. The property is located in a popular residential area on the outskirts of the historic town of Sherborne and within walking distance to local facilities, which include a primary school, Coop, hairdressers and fish and chip shop. The town centre and mainline train station are about a mile away. The property has been the very much loved and enjoyed home to our sellers for the last nine years. During this time it has been well maintained and improved with re-felting to the flat roofs, new kitchen units have been installed, replacement suite in the downstairs shower room and the creation of an en-suite shower room to bedroom three as well as some landscaping to the rear garden. In addition, this lovely home benefits from gas fired central heating from a back boiler and uPVC double glazing throughout. The property offers comfortable living with nicely proportioned rooms and must be viewed to really appreciate what it has to offer and its location and stunning views.
