About This Property

A substantial detached home occupying an elevated 0.8 acre plot with wonderful gardens and valley views. Integral double garage with much scope to extend STPP. EPC Band E.

GTH are proud to offer this substantial and individually designed detached home built in 1962, principally of Purbeck Stone under a tiled roof. Stirling is positioned in an elevated position above the road leading into Nether Compton and is surrounded by beautiful landscaped gardens amounting to approximately a 0.8 acre. The house and gardens offer privacy and enjoy breath-taking views over the valley which runs through the village. The property offers any discerning buyer the most warm and welcoming of homes whilst still providing a blank canvas to enable one to stamp their own design on this home. The current owners have resided at the property for over 40 years, testament to what a wonderful home it has been. The total accommodation amounts to almost 3000 sqft, the ground floor already works well for family living but there is huge scope for redesign for those looking to implement a more modern, open-plan style of living. The integral double garage, with electric roller doors and rear access could serve a multitude of purposes including a gym or workshop and subject to the usual consents, could also be incorporated into further accommodation.  In summary the accommodation comprises a most welcoming open plan entrance hall, cloakroom, drawing room with Minster fireplace, dining room, garden room, kitchen, utility, boiler room, principal bedroom with en suite, family bathroom and a further two substantial double bedrooms. The property offers excellent potential for additional bedroom accommodation with the attic ripe for conversion and great opportunity to extend over the garage (STPP). Of note is also the noticeably light and airy feel of accommodation, taking in views of the garden and valley. The location, grounds and potential this property offers makes it truly unique and for those looking for their ‘forever home’, one would be hard pushed to find a better residence.

The village benefits from a village green, a public house and church to its centre and is for the most part made up of attractive period houses.  oth Sherborne and Yeovil provide an excellent range of cultural, recreational and shopping facilities and the region is well known for its public and privately funded schooling.  Sporting, walking and riding opportunities within the area with golf clubs at both Sherborne and Yeovil.  Communication links are good with a main line station linking directly to London Waterloo, while road links along the A303 joined at Wincanton give swift access to London and the Home Counties along the M3, M25 route.

A sweeping elevated drive leads from the road to the garage and turning area, passing through the beautifully landscaped gardens. On the left of the driveway approaching the house is a good area of lawn with a shrub and floral borders. The garden has many specimen trees to include a Copper Beech, Willow and Cherry. To the right hand side of the drive is a further area of lawn on the southern side of the house. This area is easily access via the drawing room and garden room with a sun terrace for outside entertaining. The rear of the garden adjoins open and unspoilt farmland.

Oil Central Heating. Septic Tank used at present but main drainage is available in the village.
