Pipers Gate is an individual detached house, faced with reconstituted stone under a tiled roof. The accommodation is well proportioned, light and airy with most rooms taking full advantage of the southerly aspect and outlook over Sherborne School for Girls to the woods at Dancing Hill beyond. The layout of the accommodation is such that it is suited to able-bodied and those with disabilities in equal measure. Wheelchair users might want to note that there is a large double garage/workshop with level passageway access to the basement, where a lift service connects not only with the central hallway, but the main landing at first floor level as well.
The kitchen is a good size, and is fitted with units and appliances at a level suitable for use by wheelchair users.
On the ground floor there is a delightful south-facing central hallway with a galleried landing and staircase, woodblock flooring and the lift. There is a cloakroom with WC and wash-handbasin. The main reception room has a stone fireplace with a Baxi grate and south-facing bay window with seating and fitted bookcases. The dining room runs along the rear of the house, and has cupboards and French casements out to the garden. The kitchen/breakfast room also enjoys a southerly aspect, with a range of kitchen cupboard and drawer units and integrated appliances. The kitchen is supported by a utlity room, which also houses the gas-fired central heating boiler. There is a basement floor with storage and direct passageway access through to the integral double garage and workshop.
On the first floor the principal bedroom is beautifully sunny, with a full height west-facing window as well as views looking across the Girls School to Dancing Hill beyond. It is served by an ensuite wet room with a level access shower, bath, WC and wash handbasin. There are three more bedrooms, all with built in wardrobes and a second bathroom.
There is a double garage/workshop with light and power, together with a passageway connecting with the basement and the lift. Immediately at the front of the house is a lawn focused on a raised pond. To one side is a summerhouse with espalier trees. Beyond the lawn is a paved circular walkway with raised flower beds to either side. At the rear are two garden workshops and a storage area, open fronted log store and an aluminium greenhouse. The rear garden comprises a level area of lawn, for the most part screened by established trees.
