74 Newland is arguably one of the most remarkable town houses to be offered for sale in Sherborne. Completed in 2013, it has a traditional façade to be entirely compatible with the designated Conservation Area within which it sits, but once inside and viewed from the garden, its character is stylish and contemporary aimed at providing a wonderful living environment combined with all of the advantages of living in the heart of the town centre. The specification is high by any standards and designed to incorporate state of the art energy efficiency providing low running costs.
The accommodation comprises a fabulous open plan living/dining/kitchen on the first floor with a vaulted ceiling, cornice lighting and a near centrally set staircase. This room takes full advantage of the southerly aspect and has bi-fold doors opening out onto a protected sun balcony from which there are views over the walled garden together with roof tops of the town towards the woods of Sherborne Castle. a second balcony gives direct access down to the garden.
The bedroom accommodation is arranged on the ground floor. The principal bedroom suite has doors opening into the garden itself and enjoys the southerly aspect. It has a beautifully fitted en suite bathroom with separate shower cubicle. A guest bedroom sits to one side, also with French casements to the garden and an en suite shower room. The third bedroom which is at the front of the house might serve well as a study and is directly across the hall from a cloakroom/shower room. The utility room off the hall opens into the tandem double garage which has doors at the rear opening into the garden.
It is rare to find a house in central Sherborne with both a double garage and off street parking. The whole is beautifully decorated, fitted and equipped.
The house sits behind railings at the front with a paviar driveway and parking area to one side in turn giving access to the garage. The walled garden lies to the rear and south of the house and is landscaped for ease of maintenance. It offers a good degree of privacy and seclusion.
