What a stunning little apartment and representing exceptional value too! Located on the second floor very close to the lift serving all other floors this really is a character apartment courtesy mostly to the 'dropped-eaves' design in the principle rooms. This provides the property with somewhat cosy 'cottagey' feel which is enhanced by a Southerley aspect overlooking the well maintained Church grounds. As a consequence the accommodation is warm, bright and welcoming and should be viewed at the earliest opportunity.
Constructed in 2011 by renowned retirement home specialists McCarthy and Stone, Wingfield Court is development of private apartments in a prime location opposite the playing fields of Sherborne Boys School with an outlook to the picturesque wooded hillside beyond.
