Impressive principal apartment, located within a magnificent Grade II* Listed manor house, set in beautiful grounds of about 12 acres


The Manor at Sherborne goes back to the Middle Ages when it was owned by the Abbotts of Winchcombe

During Henry VIII's reign the merchant Sir John Alleyn purchased the freehold

In 1551 it was purchased by the Dutton family and remained in their ownership for four centuries

In 1784 James Dutton was ennobled Lord Sherborne

Following his death in 1820 and the dilapidated state of the house, the 2nd Lord Sherborne completely demolished and rebuilt the house in the late 1820's

During the second world war the house was used by the British and American Armies and after the war in 1947 it became King's School

The School's Trustees purchased the freehold in 1970

In 1981-2, the house was converted into 30 apartments, designed by the Architect Peter Yiangou
