Holmrook was built as one of a pair of houses in 2011, and has the residue of a 10 year NHBC guarantee. It is attached to its twin by a screen wall at the front only, giving the impression of a continuous frontage, although in fact there is a service passageway between the two. Since being built the house has been fastidiously looked after, and is beautifully presented throughout.
On the ground floor there is a capacious entrance hall ,with staircase and giving access to a cloakroom. The sitting room spans the width of the house and is large enough to take a dining table, or a study area as well. There is a door to the garden and is focused on a contemporary fireplace. Double doors from the sitting room lead into a large south-facing kitchen/breakfast room, with a space for chairs looking out through the French casements, adjoining the terrace. The kitchen is beautifully fitted and equipped and in common with the rest of the accommodation, is bright and well-lit. The house has laminate flooring through much of the ground floor.
On the first floor, a part galleried landing gives access to the principal bedrooms which takes full advantage of the southerly aspect and views over Sherborne rooftops, including the Abbey and the parkland around Sherborne Castle, and the woods of Dancing Hill. The main bedroom has fitted wardrobes, and an ensuite shower room with large shower cubicle. On the first floor there are two other bedrooms, one of which is currently used as a study. These rooms are supported by a bathroom, which as well as a bath has a separate shower.
A staircase from the landing leads up to the second floor where there is a guest bedroom suite, with an ensuite bathroom with a shower and screen over the bath. All the bathrooms are tiled, provided with fitted furniture and fitted to a high standard.
The property is approached from Acreman Street over a private tarmac driveway, shared by two other residential properties and the Sherborne Antiques Centre. The driveway leads through to an enclosed courtyard, which gives access to a double garage with electrically operated door and side door. A gate adjacent to the garage opens to a paved, level pathway leading to the main entrance door. Most of the garden is south-facing, and is walled on two sides. It comprises a level paved terrace, leading on to a level main sweep on well maintained lawn, enclosed by lavender borders with climbing shrubs set against the walling. To the north of the house is a second lawn, set atop a stone wall.
