9 Johnsons Courtyard is one of a number of properties created in the 20th century and has handsome local stone elevations under a slate roof. What marks out this cottage from many other similar properties in Sherborne is an unusual combination of location and presentation. The property occupies a peaceful position sheltered from any passing traffic a short step from the Abbey, the main thoroughfare of Cheap Street and the main line station. In terms of presentation the property has undergone a continuous programme of updating and improvement since the late 1990's to create an exceptionally polished contemporary interior which compliments the period features of the cottage.
On the ground floor the accommodation is flowing and open plan with, in the main body of the house, a sitting area to one side and a dining area to the other while behind the dining area there is a well organised kitchen. The kitchen has been installed by "Fired Earth" with handmade cupboards and units, a double butler style sink, hard wood work surfaces and space for an Aga (4 gas rings and 2 electric ovens) with the floor laid to limestone. Upstairs there are two good bedrooms the principal of which has a partly vaulted ceiling which further enhances the feeling of light and space within the room while the bathroom has been converted into a shower room, again installed by "Fired Earth", in contemporary style. The property has attractive plank brace & latch doors throughout, flooring (with the exception of the kitchen) laid to stylish coir matting, double glazing and an efficient gas fired combination boiler that produces hot water on demand.
To the front of the property there is that most precious of Sheborne commodities, off street parking, while to the rear of the property there is an attractive south and west facing courtyard garden that is for the most part paved and enclosed by low stone walls topped by timber screening.
There is an annual maintenance bill for the communal areas of £90.
