Property Overview

This charming four bedroom detached family home is situated near the centre of Dorchester yet has a very ‘rural’ feel, tucked away down a private lane in its generous gardens with ample private parking. The house also boasts a home office/studio in its grounds. This characterful property was built in the 1990s, to provide light and spacious accommodation around its internal courtyard (which is accessible from every room on the ground floor). The heart of this home is its impressive kitchen/diner with an integral garden room to offer modern, open-plan living for family and friends. To the rear there is a more intimate sitting room with an open fire. On the first floor there are the four well-proportioned bedrooms and two bathrooms. EPC rating C.

Situation

Dorchester is the county town of Dorset, steeped in history from its Iron Age hill fort, through Roman remains to fine Georgian and Victorian architecture, now enhanced with modern facilities such as cinemas, a leisure centre and a variety of excellent restaurants. Surrounded by beautiful countryside it is only a few miles from the sea and the World Heritage Jurassic Coast: there is plenty to enjoy locally. Dorchester offers good schools, a range of doctors and dental practices and the Dorset County Hospital is situated in the town. There are train links to London Waterloo, Bristol Temple Meads and Weymouth and other coastal towns and villages, and a regular bus routes to adjoining towns.

Key Features

The heart of this home is accessed through a glazed porch straight into the open-plan kitchen/diner and garden room. This is a welcoming, social, family-space. The garden room has windows on three side to maximise the sense of light and greenery, with the benefit of French doors to access the courtyard and garden.

This high quality, traditionally styled kitchen is fitted with solid pine, Shaker style base and wall units, with solid wood worktops and butler sink. Pride of place is the Gas fired Rayburn with additional options to cook with an electric oven and gas hob. There is a substantial pantry for storage space. Additionally there is a separate utility room to the rear of the property for laundry appliances, the cloakroom, more storage options and a WC.

Across the hall is a separate sitting room with a more private feel, its open fire and beautiful solid elm flooring lend to dreams of snug, cosy evenings. There are matching French doors here, facing the garden room, giving the option of creating an open feel across the entire ground floor during the summer days.

The first floor is accessed by an elegant, wide L-shaped staircase onto a landing with two generously sized bedrooms to either side. The bathing facilities are conveniently central, tastefully fitted with a suite comprising a low level wc, a pedestal wash hand basin and a panel enclosed bath. There is a separate shower room with additional sink unit.

The entire property is tastefully decorated in a warm neutral palette throughout.

Externally there is an enclosed garden, predominately laid to lawn with a variety of established shrubs. The garden houses a useful home office/studio.
