DOMVS, in association with Fine & Country is delighted to offer CHAIN-FREE, this ENTICING CONVERSION of a former Victorian Dairy. Part of a secluded GATED DEVELOPMENT, this engaging house enjoys high ceilings and spacious accommodation throughout, and has retained charming characterful elements such as exposed brickwork and original timbers and beams.
Fordington Dairy is a beautifully designed conversion of handsome old farm buildings all set around a central quadrangle, each property harking back to its roots and sensitively designed around its origins. Typically, this is a wonderful conversion where contemporary convenience meets period character whilst at the same time the spaces are superbly designed for ease of living.
The ground floor LIVING SPACE is generous and uncluttered with large floor to ceiling glazed doors filling the room with light and framed by wonderful feature doors which flank the old stone TERRACE outside a wonderful place to sit with the doors open on a sunny day.
Within this large living space, there is an area for DINING adjacent to the open plan KITCHEN which is well equipped with storage and counter space with ample base units, under counter appliances and smart glaze-fronted wall units. A lovely brick feature with a timber door has been retained and further brickwork in the room reminds us of its past. The kitchen has been sensitively designed so that it is very much in touch with the DINING AREA but not intrusive and the SITTING AREA is wonderfully spacious.
There is also a useful downstairs CLOAKROOM with WC and HANDWASHBASIN off the ENTRANCE HALL on this floor.
The sense of space and light is immediately apparent as you reach the FIRST FLOOR. The MASTER BEDROOM SUITE with its ENSUITE SHOWER ROOM with WASHBASIN and WC is a wonderful space and large glazed windows look out over the front aspect and are framed by the eaves of the roof giving it a sense of privacy. The ceiling here is a feature of the room and some old timber beams and ironwork has been retained, the apex of the roof space increasing the sense of space.
Cleverly these are echoed throughout the bedroom spaces, the TWO further DOUBLE BEDROOMS with high vaulted ceilings and Velux windows flooding the rooms with light and space. The FAMILY BATHROOM too has a similar feature ceiling giving a wonderful height, the small iron framed window again letting in light.
To the front of the property is a sheltered South-facing PATIO area with a variety of pots and planters the perfect space for alfresco dining. Also to the front is a large separate porch leading to the front door, and ajacent allocated residents' parking.
The property lies within a private, gated development with a strong sense of community, consisting of a number of converted properties as well as some newly built homes sensitively designed in 'period' style. A short walk away is the centre of Dorchester, a county town steeped in history. Enjoying some of the county's most noted period architecture, Dorchester lies amongst beautiful rural countryside, yet is within easy reach of the coast at Weymouth. Plentiful amenities include a mainline rail link to London Waterloo, cinemas, an arts centre, museums, wine bars and restaurants, and several well-regarded schools.
From DOMVS Dorchester office, travel down High West Street (becoming High East Street) and take the second right into Icen Way. Continue along Icen Road, crossing over South Walks Road. At the end of the road, turn right into Kings Road, then take the first left into Athelstan Road. On the left hand side is a pair of electronic gates, beyond which the numbered property can be found across the courtyard.
