About This Property

A most welcoming five bedroom detached home
within a half-acre plot on the south side of Bradford
Road with wonderful views towards Honeycombe
Woods. EPC band E.

Honeycombe is located on Bradford Road, one of Sherborne’s most sought after roads.  The property is believed to have been built in the 1950's and has rendered elevations under tiled roof.  What marks out Honeycombe from many houses that have come to the market in the Bradford Road over the last few years is it’s position which lies on the south side of the road allowing the sun to be enjoyed across the back of the house for the whole day.  The house sits in the front third of the plot with a large driveway to the front and a rear garden that sweeps away to the south.  Given the way the property is positioned and subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents it has been suggested that the house could be substantially extended to the side or to the rear and still sit comfortably within its plot. 
The property is in need of modernisation, arranged with an entrance hall giving way to a central hallway from which the main living areas of the house are accessed. The heart of the home is the substantial and multi aspect sitting/dining room, fitted with parquet flooring, focal stone open fireplace with access to the conservatory from which the pleasant south facing gardens can be enjoyed.  The kitchen is equipped with a comprehensive range of floor and wall mounted units, stainless steel sink bowl and drainer unit, mixer tap over,  space and point for electric oven, space and plumbing for washing machine. Fireplace recess houses oil fired Aga. The utility provides additional storage, providing access to the garage and rear gardens.  A spiral staircase from the inner lobby leads to a generous first floor games room, which subject to consents would make an ideal principal bedroom suite. Upstairs there are five good bedrooms, the master and guest bedroom having fitted wardrobes and all being served by an updated wet room.  The property is in good working order however it is likely a new owner will want to update.  The property is part double glazed with the oil fired Aga used for cooking and water heating. Night storage heating.

Honeycombe lies on the west side of Sherborne in the Bradford Road one of Sherborne’s most prestigious residential roads.  Sherborne is an historic Abbey town with the Abbey and a conservation area to its centre and amenities that include a main line station, three doctors surgeries, a library and a comprehensive range of shops, public houses and restaurants.  The local regional centre of Yeovil lies within short motoring distance and provides with Sherborne an excellent range of cultural, recreational and shopping facilities with golf courses at both Sherborne and Yeovil.   Communication links are good with a main line station at Sherborne linking directly with London Waterloo while road links are along the A303 joined at Wincanton giving swift access to London and the Home Counties along the M3, M25 route.

The front of the property a gated entrance gives way to a substantial area of driveway providing parking for a substantial number of cars and access to the garage and separate car port (housing oil tank).  The beautiful gardens are situated at the front, side and rear of the property and extend to approximately half an acre. The south facing rear garden is predominantly laid to a well maintained lawn and enclosed by mature hedging and panel fencing. There are a variety of raised flower beds and borders housing mature flowers, trees and shrubs. Pergola seating area. Rockery garden. Detached timber summer house. Detached timber shed. Paved patio seating area.
