The Old Bakery is attached on one side and is built of stone with a tiled roof. Most handsome in appearance, the interior contains all those features associated with buildings of this type and age, most notably flagstone floors, window seats, cross beamed ceilings with good ceiling heights, beamed fireplaces, an Aga in the kitchen and the old bread ovens. Although in need of some modernisation, the house exudes an atmosphere of calm and patina that only houses of this type can have.
The Old Temperance Hall
With the property and with a frontage to Cheriton Street, is The Old Temperance Hall, built in 1887. Although only used for storage for many years as ancillary to The Old Bakery, the building has character on its own, and is readily adaptable to a variety of uses. Preliminary drawings for conversion to residential accommodation were prepared in 2015 and in February 2018 the Agents obtained a Pre-App response from South Somerset District Council from which the following is quoted " The principle of residential conversion is accepted given its location as part of the village's built form". A copy of the Pre-App response in full, together with the drawings prepared in 2015 are available on request from the Agent Sherborne offices.
