A charming 1920's chalet style bungalow with an elevated position within walking distance to the town centre.


The Retreat was built in the late 1920's and comes to the market for the first time in nearly 40 years. The property benefits from a lot of features consistent with this period, such as high ceilings.

It is fair to say that the property does need cosmetic refurbishment throughout.


You enter the property via the front door into the inner entrance hall. The ground floor consists of a lovely dual aspect living room with fireplace, a separate dining room with large front aspect windows and a kitchen to the rear with various wall and base units. This floor is completed by the bathroom, master bedroom and the additional conservatory/garden room.

The two remaining bedrooms are found on the first floor, both are a good size and the bedroom with front aspect windows benefits from a gorgeous town/country view, overlooking the neighbouring roof and chimney pots with the green rural views in the distance.


You approach the property via double gates onto the hardground driveway with plenty of space for several cars. There is a double garage with up and over door and side window as well as a brick built shed ideal for those gardening tools and equipment.

The main garden is split into two levels, the first level is mainly down to lawn and shrubbery with hedge borders overlooking the neighbouring roof tops and views beyond. Steps from here lead you down to the bottom level with a large lawn area with apple tree, hedge borders and access to the generous workshop, previously used as an artists studio.

In addition there is also a great alfresco dining spot to the east elevation, with some attention this would be a great social and entertaining patio area.


Marston Road runs north from the centre of Sherborne.

In addition there is a mainline train station providing a regular service to London/Waterloo.
