About This Property

A charming and significantly extended detached home with workshop, studio and garage facilities. Grounds amounting to approximately 0.4 acre. Countryside Views. EPC Band D.

Hillside was built in 1925 and in more recent years has been cleverly extended to create a well proportioned detached home designed to take full advantage of the countryside views toward Knapp Hill and Dorchester. Not only does the property provide a generous home and gardens, but there too are a number of outbuildings which have potential for numerous uses.
The accommodation is well presented and good sized. Modern amenities include a recently fitted hand made kitchen with quartz worktops and Hotpoint electric double oven, modern bathroom/shower room with bath and separate walk in shower, oil fired central heating, UPVC sealed unit windows and PV panels. Key features include a social dining area with bay window, L shape seating area and woodburner, triple aspect sitting room with woodburner and garden access, stunning principal bedroom with Juliet balcony and impressive views.

Briefly the accommodation extends to:
Ground floor - Porch and reception hall, cloakroom, kitchen/dining area, study, living room.
First floor – principle bedroom with Juliet balcony, Three further double bedrooms and bathroom/shower room. With configuration the landing could allow for an additional en suite and bathroom configuration.

A key feature of Hillside is the array of outbuildings on offer. Closest to the house is a well positioned studio/office, well insulated with power and splendid views over open countryside. Running along the east boundary is a further wing of outbuildings, partly built of block and cavity construction, sat on a concrete pad and offering the opportunity for conversion to holiday let or ancillary accommodation, subject to consent. The remaining outbuildings are currently configured to provide a double garage 18’9” x 18’9”, integral car port and two twin bay workshops with 16 amp electric connected.

Caundle Marsh lies a stone throw from village of Bishops Caundle which itself lies short motoring distance to the south of the historic Abbey town of Sherborne. The village has a church, a public house, a primary school, a petrol station and a village store/post office while both Sherborne and the local regional centre of Yeovil lie within comfortable motoring distance providing between them an excellent range of cultural, recreational and shopping facilities. Sporting, walking and riding opportunities abound within the area while the region is well known for both its public and privately funded schooling. There is a main line station at Sherborne linking directly with London Waterloo while road links are along the A303 joined at Wincanton.

The gated driveway sweeps up to the front of the house to a parking area and ease of access to the range of outbuildings. The main gardens lie to the rear of the property with large expanses of slightly sloping lawn interspersed with a variety of terraced and landscaped areas, fruit and other specimen trees. There is potentially a productive vegetable garden, summerhouse, shed greenhouse, bike and log store. Viewings are recommended to appreciate the wonderful far reaching views.
