Dating back as far as the 1600s, Toll Cottage has a rich history under it's stone elevations and thatched roof. It is rumoured to be one of the oldest houses in Sherborne, and with it comes some fantastic character features. The inglenook fireplace makes a stunning focal point for the lounge and there is a small window in the bedroom which was said to be used to watch travellers come down the old London road in anticipation of paying their toll monies! The cottage is Grade II listed, and although would benefit from modernisation throughout, there is ample space on offer following an extension in the 1970s. In brief the property offers three double bedrooms, two bathrooms, two reception rooms, a study, kitchen/diner, utility room and cloakroom. Outside the property benefits from a private, enclosed courtyard, garden, larger than average garage and off road parking. Offered for sale with NO ONWARD CHAIN! EPC Exempt
