THE AGENT SAYS...
The Old School Church Street Yetminster boasts wonderful spacious accommodation with larger than average rooms, including a 32 sitting room, a self contained annexe (ideal for a home office, guest/family accommodation or for Air BNB) and generous garage/workshop. Grade II listed, the front of the property has beautiful arched leaded windows with stone mullions, which add character to many of the rooms. Original fireplaces and exposed beams provide further interior charm.
Beneath the old school bell a wooden door opens into the large, airy hallway with stairs to the first floor and doors leading to the sitting and dining rooms and a downstairs WC. The original fireplace and windows are a real feature of the dual aspect sitting room and add a cosy feel to the large space. Doors lead out to the sunny conservatory with its lovely views over the garden.
The atmospheric dining room leads through to the country style kitchen/breakfast room which overlooks the garden. A further door from the dining room provides direct access to the patio area. Adjacent to the kitchen breakfast room is the utility area which links the annexe to the main house.
The self-contained annexe comprises a good-sized double bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and a lovely, bright sitting room with fireplace.
Upstairs are 3 bedrooms and the family bathroom, which are accessed from a bright study/lounge area at the top of the stairs. Further stairs rise from this area to abundant attic storage space which runs the length of the property and offers potential for conversion.
An original fireplace with large wooden beam and an arched stone mullion window add charm to the sizeable master bedroom which boasts a generous en-suite with a bath and separate shower. There is also plenty of built in storage.
The second bedroom, currently used as the master, is unusually large and has dual aspect views to the front and rear of the property. An exposed beam runs the length of the room. This room also benefits from built-in storage. Bedroom three is a good size double with an exposed beam and incorporates the original window in the bell tower above the front door.
GARDENS AND GROUNDS
Outside the well-maintained garden is laid predominantly to lawn with mature shrubs. There is also an ornamental pond. The large gravel driveway provides plenty of parking, which in turn leads to the double garage. Adjacent to this is an additional lawned seating area, flanked by colourful trees.
The historical village of Yetminster, situated on the river Wriggle, is widely regarded as one of the most sought-after villages in the area. It has a pub, Norman church, village shop, post office, health centre, vet and school, as well as its own railway station, all of which lie within easy walking distance of The Old School. Much of Yetminster is designated a conservation area and there are many beautiful country walks in the local area. It lies within the western area of the Blackmore Vale, and within easy commuting distance of the abbey town of Sherborne, the regional centre of Yeovil and the county town of Dorchester. Open countryside of the Dorset Downs, which lies to the South, is for the most part designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and beyond is the Dorset coast. The A303 can be joined to the North at Sparkford, giving good access back to London and the Home Counties along the A303/M3 route.
From the centre of Yetminster, with the White Hart pub on your left, proceed through the village, past the telephone box and take the next right into Church Street. Proceed up Church Street and the entrance to The Old School will be seen on the left hand side, just before the Church.
