3 Church Place is a wonderful family home tucked away in a quiet and gated residential location in the picturesque village of Henstridge.
This 5 bedroom family home is a light and spacious property, built twenty years ago, and has been kept in immaculate order. The house is entered via a pretty porch, perfect for storing outdoor clothing and leads into a wonderfully large spacious hallway which is floodlight via the balconied landings overhead with triple layered skylights. The clever use of exposed brickwork throughout the hallway and continuing up each staircase creates a sense of drama and unique design.
From the hallway double doors lead into a generous sitting room which overlooks the front of the property and with French doors accessing the rear garden. An attractive stone fireplace with wood burner creates a focal point in this perfectly proportioned space. Opposite the sitting room is a dining room, currently used as a games room, with a further door leading into a study. The kitchen is a fabulous space with the addition of an impressive vaulted orangerie, glazed from floor to ceiling creating the perfect place to dine with enough room for additional seating to relax overlooking the garden.
Upstairs on the first landing are three generous double bedrooms, 2 with en-suites and an extra family bathroom. Continuing up to the second floor are another two wonderful double bedrooms which have been built into the eaves with unusually tall ceilings and plenty of light.
The property is accessed via an intercom system linked to the gate leading to the large gravelled driveway. To the right of the property is a large double garage and the pretty garden wraps around the property with a mixture of lawn and paving and planted with an abundance of shrubs and flowering plants.
The immediate surrounding houses create a lovely community and offer a welcoming environment to newcomers. The village itself has a church, a post office/store, two pubs and a primary school and a village hall which is the hub of social activities. Fabulous walks, sporting facilities and equine pursuits are all available nearby.
The wonderful historical town of Sherborne is 10 miles west and provides an excellent range of cultural, recreational and shopping facilities with a plethora of boutiques, cafes and restaurants. Shaftsbury is 10 miles to the east and offers further amenities in a pretty town. The fashionable town of Bruton is a leisurely drive and is home to the renowned Art Gallery Hauser and Wirth. The new outstanding venue, The Newt, is approximately 9 miles - a recently opened country estate offering beautiful walks around the splendid woodlands and gardens with wonderful restaurants and a spa.
Henstridge has its own primary school and secondary schools can be found nearby in Templecombe. There are excellent private schools, Port Regis prep school, Sherborne boys and girls and St Mary’s Shaftsbury.
Transport links are excellent with two stations, Templecombe and Sherborne both offering a mainline rail link direct into London. The A303 is easily accessible and is the main link by road to the north and south.
