About This Property

A most appealing four bedroom detached village house, located in most sought after village location. Positioned within approximately 1.3 acres with a useful range of outbuildings, including an annexe.

Orchard House was formerly a range of traditional stone-built farm buildings which were converted in 1981 and further extended in 1991 to form a substantial and well-appointed family home. Built of local stone under a slated roof and with some mullion windows, the house offers attractive accommodation with a period feel, yet with modern attributes. The rooms are spacious, and from many of them there is a lovely outlook over the delightful gardens and paddock, currently set to a wonderful wild flower meadow interspersed with meandering pathways, amounting to 1.3 acres. The house has an attractive outlook towards the village church and Knighton Hill in the distance. Set separately, but linked to the house, is an annexe which would be ideal for use by guests, or a relative, or alternatively a work from home office.
In summary the accommodation extends to: Reception hall, triple aspect drawing room with stone fireplace, sitting room with fireplace and garden views, dining room/study, Kitchen/Breakfast room, utility room and cloakroom. On the first floor there are four bedrooms, the majority having lovely views over the gardens and Knighton Hill. There are vanity sinks in the bedrooms and 2 family bathrooms. 

Mains water, electricity and drainage. LPG gas fired central heating. Tenure Freehold. Council Tax band G. EPC band G.

Orchard House is conveniently located in the heart of the ever popular village of Leigh, which itself lies in the beautiful Dorset countryside to the South of the historic Abbey town of Sherborne and the local regional centre of Yeovil. The village has a church, a shop and sub post office, garage, and a village hall to its centre, while both Sherborne, Yeovil and Dorchester lie within short motoring distance 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, while the region is well known for both its public and privately funded schooling. Communication links are good with a halt at nearby Chetnole on the Weymouth to Bath and Bristol line. A main line station at Sherborne links 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.

A 5 bar gate from the village lane leads to generous parking area at the front of the property. Here there is a substantial double garage built partly of stone under a pitched slate roof, with power and light. There is a further open fronted garage of stone under a slate roof, and an adjoining workshop with power and water supply. The gardens are wonderfully private with areas of lawn and terrace extending around the house, interspersed with an array of floral borders and specimen trees. There is a separate working garden with green house and raised vegetables beds. A post and rail fence divides the garden from an attractive paddock currently set to a wild flower meadow.
