Bedrooms: 4
Substantial detached four bedroom stone village house in good order throughout, to the centre of a lovely Dorset village.

The property is believed to have been built in the late 1990s with handsome stone elevations under a slate roof and occupies a peaceful position away from passing traffic, in the grounds of a former rectory. The house is beautifully proportioned with some spacious living accommodation on the ground floor arranged around a galleried hallway with four good bedrooms above, served by an ensuite shower room and a family bathroom accessed off an equally spacious landing. In recent years the property has undergone a rolling programme of renewal and modernisation taking in the kitchen and its integrated appliances and both the shower room and the bathroom, bringing the house firmly into the 21st Century.

The galleried hallway makes an instant impression on entering the property, giving access to the principal rooms with to one side the daytime hub of the kitchen/breakfast/living room that flows through to the conservatory and, to the other, the more formal sitting room, dining room and study. The sitting room is beautifully proportioned, has a fireplace equipped with a woodburning stove as it focal point, with to one side bi-fold doors that bring the gardens into the house during the Summer months. The dining room also overlooks the garden and there is a study beside. The kitchen is equipped with a comprehensive range of floor and wall mounted units in cupboards with attractive granite work surfaces over, with a central island unit and integrated appliances that include an electric double oven with warming cupboard under, an induction hob with extractor hood over, a fridge/freezer and a dishwasher. Beyond the dining area, the conservatory is laid to ceramic tiles, with double doors to one side into the garden. Also off the kitchen to one side there is a useful utility room and to the other there is a large double integral garage, equipped with twin electrically operated up and over doors with a workshop area to one side and a useful storage area within the roof void above. Upstairs there are four good bedrooms the principal of which has an ensuite shower room and a walk-in wardrobe, with the three remaining bedrooms sharing a family bathroom equipped with a shower over the bath. The property is in excellent decorative order throughout, has oil fired central heating (combi boiler), UPVC double glazing, an intruder alarm system and private drainage.

To the front of the house the property is approached along a shared driveway to a substantial area laid to gravel, providing parking and turning for a number of cars and access to the double garage. To one side a paved path with steps leads up to the front door. To the rear of the property there is a South and West facing garden, for the most part laid to lawn and edged by well-stocked herbaceous and shrub borders designed to give shape, colour and form throughout the year. Around the house there are areas of paved and decked terrace, organised to take in the sun at various times during the day, while the garden is enclosed for the most part by timber fencing with mature hedging in front. To one side of the garden there is a vegetable patch while to the other side of the house there is a useful timber garden shed.
