About This Property

An impressive, individual home set with a generous plot all within easy reach of Sherborne town centre. Spacious accommodation including 2 reception rooms and 4 bedrooms. Large garden, ample off road parking and 2 garages. EPC Pending.

Fairmead is an impressive, individual detached house enjoying a generous plot, located within very easy reach of Sherborne Town Centre.  Dating back to the 1900s, the property exhibits the generously proportioned rooms and high ceilings typical of this period of architecture with several character features include a Minster fireplace in the sitting room and a superb gas fired Aga in the kitchen. The property has been within the same family ownership for decades and been lovingly cared for.  The property has been significantly improved and extended to create a host of living accommodation and a wonderful principal bedroom suite with en suite.

Internally the accommodation is family-orientated with a sociable emphasis. The reception rooms are beautifully light and airy, which include an expansive yet comfortable dual aspect sitting room with a Minster fireplace and gas fire inset; dining room with bi-folding doors and stone flooring, flowing effortlessly into the kitchen breakfast room.   The kitchen is beautifully fitted with a host of units and granite worktops, ceramic sink and drainer and integrated appliances to include a Siemens dishwasher, induction hob, electric oven, Miele coffee machine, fridge and freezer.  There is also a centrepiece gas fired Aga.   The ground floor has underfloor heating (kitchen and dining room only) and accommodation arranged in a smoothly-flowing layout which works very well for entertaining whilst allowing the use and identity of each room to be preserved for everyday family enjoyment. The property is well appointed to provide every domestic convenience with a large utility/boot/laundry room, cloakroom and wines stores.

The charming entrance porch and hall has a staircase leading to a first floor landing from which the four double bedrooms can be accessed, along with bathroom and en suite facilities. Each of the bedrooms is light and airy with several enjoying a pleasant dual aspect.  The principal bedroom measures an impressive 22’ x 18’4” offering fitted wardrobes and an ensuite shower. Bedroom four connects through from the landing to the principal bedroom and would make an ideal study or nursery/dressing room. It is thought that there are a wealth of opportunities for possible development in the attic, subject to necessary consents.

All mains services. Gas central heating.

Fairmead lies on the north side of the historic Abbey town of Sherborne which has a comprehensive selection of amenities including the Abbey, a main line station, two doctors surgeries and an excellent range of shops, public houses and restaurants.  Sporting, walking and riding opportunities abound within the area with golf clubs at both Yeovil and Sherborne while the region is well known for both its publicly and privately funded schools. Communication links are good with a main line station linking directly with London Waterloo while road links are along the A303 joined at Wincanton.

The property enjoys an enviable position, set well back from the road with a dual entrance and parking and turning area to the front providing space for a number of vehicles and giving access to the double garage.  In addition to the garage is a separate workshop with power. Wrapping around the house, the large gardens are primarily laid to lawn with established, well stocked borders and fruit trees, ornamental pond, summer house and garden shed, providing a delightful setting and excellent facilities for spending time out of doors. There is a side area of garden, currently configured for vegetable growing, but with a further benefit of the vehicular side access which has potential to provide additional parking or space for a caravan, boat or trailer.
