15 Sherborne House is an elegant period apartment set within this historic building with views over the communal grounds. Sherborne House sits in approximately 12 acres on the site of a former hunting lodge to Winchcombe Abbey, which was subsequently rebuilt for John Dutton between 1829 and 1834.

This beautiful Grade II* Listed building is approached through a pillared entrance and along a sweeping drive way. The building was converted into apartments in 1981 and now offers a unique opportunity for a range of buyers to acquire the perfect downsizer or second home with a range of facilities to hand.

The apartment is located on the first floor with large windows to three aspects making it a very light property. Many characterful features can be enjoyed with the impressive tall ceilings, large sash windows and fireplace in the main reception room.

The accommodation is generous with a large entrance hall with a useful storage cupboard, a delightful reception room with dual aspect, views and open fireplace, a fitted kitchen with integrated appliances, a cloakroom/utility room and 2 double bedroom suites with bespoke built in cupboards.

A sweeping drive leads to the front of the house and the allocated parking spaces to the side. The property enjoys almost 12 acres of manicured grounds including a rose garden and an orchard.

The communal facilities include a heated swimming pool, sauna, gym and tennis court. The complex also benefits from a full time resident caretaker.

Sherborne village lies in the folds of the Cotswold Hills and is mainly owned by the National Trust, as is the Sherborne Estate which owns several thousands of acres surrounding the village.

The village, with its typical Cotswold cottages and houses, is situated in the heart of the Cotswolds in the valley of the Little Sherborne Brook. In the village there is a local Post Office/shop, a Parish church, primary school and social club with more extensive facilities available in Bourton-on-the-Water, Burford or Cheltenham.

The property is well located for sporting opportunities with golf at Burford and Naunton Downs; racing at Cheltenham and Warwick; hunting with the Heythrop and Cotswold Hunt; and rugby at Gloucester, as well as the arts, jazz and literary festivals in Cheltenham. There is also an extensive network of footpaths and bridleways and a number of superb pubs within the vicinity.
