A marvellous and grand sitting room has original panelling and working fireplace creating the perfect place to relax and unwind. At the back of the property, and conveniently positioned opposite the entrance to the kitchen, is a generous utility room with downstairs loo. The garden room, leading from the kitchen, is a fabulous addition to the property creating a space to enjoy the garden all year around with glazed panelling and French doors.

The first floor is home to three large double bedrooms all with wonderful views, original sash windows and pretty fireplaces. The master bedroom benefits from a generous dressing room and access to an impressive family bathroom with a walk-in shower and period style bath complimenting the original fireplace with its marble surround.

The property is accessed via a paved path flanked by manicured lawns. The back garden is a combination of terrace and lawn with mature shrubs and stone walling.

Transport links are excellent with Yetminster having its own station -  London Paddington, via Westbury, is approximately 2.5 hours. London Waterloo can be reached within 2.5 hours from both Sherborne and Yeovil.  The A303 is within easy reach and is the main link to the East or West.  The cities of Exeter, Bath, Bristol and Salisbury are all within approximately 1 hour’s driving distance.
