The Lorne, 57 Newland is an attractive Grade II Listed townhouse of rendered elevations at the front with stone and brick extensions to the rear under a pitched slate roof in a prominent location on Newland and facing south towards Hound Street. In recent years the property has been extended on the ground floor to provide an attractive garden room overlooking the gardens as well as a further side addition to provide the utility room. Whilst overall the property is well presented it would benefit from redecoration and possibly upgrading the bathroom and kitchen to the incoming purchaser's requirements.
The property is entered at the side via the parking space to an entrance hall with door to a cloakroom with pedestal wash hand basin and WC and glazed door to a wonderful south facing open plan dining area with understairs cupboard and open to the sitting room with two south facing sash windows, modern fireplace with overmantle and bookshelves as well as gas coal effect fire. From the entrance hall a further glazed door leads to the kitchen breakfast room with white wall and floor units with worktops incorporating stainless steel 1.5 bowl sink, Diplomat four ring gas hob with extractor hood above and attractive tiled splashbacks, plumbing and space for dishwasher. A further range of floor units with worktops and incorporating high level Diplomat double oven. The room naturally divides into a kitchen and breakfast area with side window, access to roof space and a door to the good sized utility room with base units and worktop above and butler style sink, tiled splashbacks, plumbing and space for washing machine, Worcester 14/19CBi gas boiler. Stable door to outside and door to walk-in pantry. From the breakfast area a large opening leads to the garden room with French doors and glazed side panels leading to the garden.
A staircase with attractive banister rails leads to the first floor with two deep cupboards, one housing hot water cylinder. At the front there are two bedrooms, both with attractive vistas towards Hound Street and the wooded areas beyond by Sherborne Castle. There is a good sized bathroom with part tiled walls, bath in deep tiled surround with overhead shower, wash hand basin with cupboards below, heated towel rail and WC. At the rear is a third bedroom with two double hanging cupboards and further storage above and wash hand basin.
Beyond the paved parking area a timber side gate separates the garden access adjacent to the utility room door. To the side and rear of the property a paved path with attractive stone retaining wall leads to a raised gravel area sheltered by an attractive stone wall. A wide paved path with steps leads to a wonderful part walled garden with areas of level lawn and deep and well stocked flower and shrub borders providing a delightful area either for the keen gardener or a tranquil private garden space.
