About This Property

A charming period residence dating back to 1870 in an enviable central village position. Beautifully restored with mature walled gardens, sweeping driveway and car port. EPC band E.

The Old Post Office is probably one of the finest examples of a sympathetic and high specification renovation. The property is a handsome period detached residence with beautiful walled gardens and grounds in a pleasant setting within the heart of this highly sought after village. The house is very historic, understood to date back to 1870 and as the name suggests, was formerly the corner stone of the village. It is principally built of natural stone and cob, with brick detailing and attractive sash windows. Under the current twenty year ownership, a transformational programme of renovation works were undertaken in the early 2000s, changing the property from the former post office into a beautiful, free flowing home. The core of the house was improved with a full re-wire and central heating system. A host of period features have been retained with wonderful ceiling heights and feature fireplaces seamlessly integrated with bespoke joinery, solid oak floors, double glazed hardwood windows and an abundance of natural light.  
The house offers extensive and versatile accommodation being arranged over 3 floors with a generous net floor area of 2845sq ft. There are lovely views, particularly from the upper floors over the village, and the surrounding countryside.

The accommodation extends to:
Ground floor - reception hall, dining room, sitting room with panelled folding doors to a separate family room, conservatory, kitchen, boot room, utility/wet room with shower and a separate boiler room with sheltered access under a bespoke glass canopy. The boot room, utility/wet room and boiler room could be reconfigured to provide ancillary annexe accommodation or a work from home office. 
First floor - landing, two large front bedrooms with fitted wardrobes, family bathroom, a rear bedroom with pleasant views and a large en suite shower room.
Second floor - landing, principal bedroom with generous en suite shower room and storage spaces.

All mains services less gas. Oil fired central heating. LPG gas hob. Council Tax Band C.

The Old Post Office is situated to the centre of the popular and attractive village of Yetminster that has a conservation area at its centre made up of period houses and with a variety of amenities including a Spar supermarket, a public house, a primary school, a health centre and a train halt while both the local regional centre, Dorchester, and the historic Abbey town of Sherborne lie within short motoring providing between them an excellent range of cultural, recreational and shopping facilities. Sporting, walking and riding opportunities abound within the area with many walks to be had from the village itself. The region is well known for both its public and privately funded schooling. Commuter links are good with the train station at Yetminster on the Weymouth to Bristol line, 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 main gardens lie to the rear, are fully enclosed, part stone walled and have a easterly orientation and private aspect. A sweeping drive located to the side of the property, flanked by espalier fruit trees, leads to the rear with a generous gravelled area of parking with an outbuilding comprising car port and large garden store with shelving, lighting and power. The gardens are level and beautifully stocked with a whole variety of shrubs and trees to include a beautiful Italian Alder. There is a feature ornamental pond and attractive sun terrace for outside entertaining.
