DESCRIPTION Foresters House is one of the finest Grade II Listed properties found on Sherston High Street occupying a prime position in the very heart of this sought-after village just a stone throws away from amenities.

Over the last few years, the property has undergone a stunning renovation and remodelling completed by highly-reputed builders Chappell & Dix. The accommodation has been sympathetically enhanced using exceptionally high-quality fittings including bespoke panelling, joinery and solid flooring whilst retaining much of it's original charm and character.
The substantial family sized accommodation spans over three floors with a useful converted cellar below and extends in all to around 3,667 sq.ft featuring generously proportioned rooms with high ceilings in the principle part of the house typical to the era. The ground floor boasts ample living space comprising two front reception rooms, an inner hallway with stairs up, and a magnificent bespoke kitchen open plan to the newly added dining room and adjoining the living room which has bi-fold doors spilling into the sunny garden. On the first floor, there are four bedrooms whilst the top floor has a further double bedroom. The two principal bedrooms have an en-suite shower rooms in addition to a family bathroom located off the landing complete with both a shower and bath. The converted cellar now offers a utility room, wine store and further storeroom.
The large 140ft garden is a notable feature of the property enjoying a sunny south-east facing aspect and a good degree of privacy enclosed by stone walling. The garden has been beautifully re-landscaped with a large patio terrace for outside dining, central lawn bound by vibrant flower bed borders and a further sun terrace at the far end. The property has the rare feature of side access from the High Street leading to a detached stone former garage offering versatile potential for a workshop, home office or gym.
