DOMVS offers this traditional property within this EXTREMELY WELL-REGARDED village. Formerly the old headmasters house with exposed beams, inglenook fireplace, it would benefit from some updating, but has generous accommodation including 4 DOUBLE bedrooms and a westerly-facing garden.
This traditional property, formally the old headmasters house, has the benefit of a spacious interior with the engaging exterior of the vernacular. The property is entered through the original solid timber panelled door into a welcoming ENTRANCE HALLWAY where by all accommodation can be reached.
The SITTING ROOM to the front of the property is of good size with characterful features such as exposed beams and inglenook fireplace with wood-burning stove. The DINING ROOM is capacious and bright with the original fireplace in stone surround housing the boiler. The KITCHEN would benefit from updating, but has plentiful base units and work surface space with electric cooker; there is also a useful larder cupboard. The kitchen and the dining room are separated by a stud wall and, if desired, could be opened to make a wonderfully large kitchen/diner spanning the full depth of the property.
To the rear of the property is a UTILITY ROOM where the CLOAKROOM can be found which comprises a WC and hand-wash basin. There is also a STUDY with views over the rear garden.
Stairs rise from the entrance hallway to a wide and bright FIRST FLOOR landing where four bedrooms and the family bathroom can be found. All four bedrooms are of a modern décor, with painted floorboards and ample space for a double bed and additional furnishings such as wardrobes. The FAMILY BATHROOM comprises a bath with shower attachment, WC, hand-wash basin and airing cupboard.
To the rear is a patio area abutting the property with steps rising to a raised lawn. Enjoying a predominantly westerly-facing direction it is a sunny afternoon sun-trap. The oil tank is located here.
Located within Cerne Abbas - voted Best Village in England in 2008 and understandably so it is an outstandingly pretty village with a choice of facilities including a general stores/post office, three public houses, tea rooms, a parish church and a doctors surgery. The village itself nestles in the Cerne River Valley which is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is renowned for the Cerne Giant a chalk figure cut into the hillside - and is equidistant between Dorchester and Sherborne allowing easy commuting to the highly regarded schools, shops and restaurants.
From our Dorchester office proceed up High West Street turning right at the Top o' Town roundabout. Follow road to the second roundabout and take the second exit (A37).
