Property of the Day: Church Street, Yetminster, Sherborne

This former vicarage is now an elegant six-bedroom house with period features

THE PROPERTY: This Grade II-listed former vicarage has been sensitively converted into a six-bedroom family home. 

THE LOCATION: The property is situated in the sought-after village of Yetminster, whose various amenities include a primary school, a pub, a supermarket, a sports club and a railway station (there is rail access to London Paddington via Westbury or Bath & Bristol). The larger towns of Sherborne and Dorchester are accessible within six and 16 miles respectively.

THE INTERIOR: Spread over three floors, all of the accommodation offers high ceilings and excellent proportions, with open fireplaces and picture rails among the period features in the principal living spaces (the dual-aspect drawing-room is particularly suited to entertaining). Leading up from the impressive reception hall is a wide staircase rising to the galleried landing, which has doors into the master suite. There is extensive attic space in addition to the six bedrooms.

WHY WE LOVE IT: The 1.57-acre grounds include formal gardens to the rear, a large paved terrace for alfresco dining and a lawn surrounded by colourful borders.
