17 Newland is a sophisticated Grade II Georgian town house with a courtyard garden situated in the heart of the beautiful town of Sherborne.
Recently renovated the property won the Conservation Award for 2014 granted by the Sherborne and District Society and is presented in immaculate order with tasteful décor and high-end finishing throughout. The welcoming entrance hall leads into a wonderful sitting room with original open fireplace and is naturally floodlit with traditional Georgian sash windows. An open plan kitchen/dining room is beautifully proportioned with sleek modern units topped with marble and includes quality appliances and oak flooring throughout. There is also a downstairs loo off the entrance hall
Two sets of floor-to-ceiling French doors lead out from both the kitchen and the dining room onto the stunning courtyard creating a bright space in which to cook and dine. Handsome crafted oak cupboards are conveniently positioned in the kitchen, housing the washing machine and tumble dryer, and the hallway offering excellent storage space. An impressive oak staircase leads up to the first floor with three generous bedrooms, one currently being used as a study, and a family bathroom. The master bedroom has a walk in wardrobe and a fabulous en-suite with walk-in shower, freestanding bath and most notably exceptional bespoke units, with twin basins, crafted from African Teak. The second floor offers a fourth double bedroom with en-suite and features a dramatic original beamed structure overhead. The vendor currently runs a very successful airbnb and has been awarded a superhost status.
The courtyard garden has been created by the renowned designer Ivan Hicks and is an absolute triumph. The exquisite, mature, planting includes tree ferns, palms, rambling roses, wisteria and a prolific fig tree. A waterfall feature with integral rockery creates an oasis of tranquillity. Pretty stone steps lead up to a secondary level perfect for dining al fresco in this splendid setting.
