21 Gainsborough Drive forms part of an exclusive development on the west side of Sherborne, built in the late 1980s. Number 21 is located on the Southern side of the close and is presented in very well order throughout.
The property is entered via a small open porch leading to the good sized entrance hall with all the main rooms leading off including the dining room to the front and a good sized guest cloakroom. The kitchen/breakfast room and living room both overlook the well stocked garden to the rear. Of particular note is the well proportioned sitting room with gas fireplace and doors to the conservatory.
The kitchen/breakfast room with tiled flooring has an excellent range of wall and floor units with worktops, cupboards and drawers. There is an eye level electric oven with a 4 ring gas hob, cupboards housing the Worcester gas central heating boiler and water softener. Off the kitchen is a separate utility room again with worktops, cupboards and sink. There is space and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer.
On the first floor there are four bedrooms with a family bathroom. The stairwell from the entrance hall leads you to the ample first floor landing with good storage including airing cupboard. There is also loft access via a pull down ladder. The master bedroom, having previously been two rooms, now benefits from a very generous dressing area and en-suite bathroom. The guest bedroom with front aspect windows also benefits from an en-suite shower room. The two remaining bedrooms, one of which is dressed as a home office are of good proportion and both are to rear aspect. Overall the accommodation is bright and well arranged, ideal for modern day family living.
The property is approached over a brick paved driveway leading to the double garage with electric up and over doors, power and light. The garage can also be accessed via a side door to the side path leading to the rear garden. Both the front and rear gardens are presented very well with planted pots, shingle and various established plants and hedging. The rear garden, enclosed by wooden panel fencing and hedging, has a very social patio area, an attractive pergola with an attached watering system, external power points and a useful garden shed. The gardens have been planted with ease of maintenance in mind as well as providing colour throughout the seasons.
Gainsborough Drive runs parallel to Bradford Road on the west side of Sherborne. The historic Abbey town provides a comprehensive range of day to day amenities including two supermarkets and a charming main shopping thoroughfare with a variety of shops and businesses together with restaurants, pubs and a mainline railway station providing a regular service to London/Waterloo. The regional centre of Yeovil is a short drive to the west and other towns within easy drive include Dorchester to the south, Wincanton, Gillingham and Shaftesbury to the east and Bath to the north.
