DOMVS is pleased to offer this delightful Grade II listed BARN CONVERSION located in a QUIET part of Dorchester WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE OF THE TOWN CENTRE. Benefitting from FOUR BEDROOMS and a LARGE SITTING ROOM, the property also offers a PRIVATE GARDEN, CARPORT, and ADDITIONAL PARKING SPACE.
This fine stone, Grade II Listed thatched barn conversion is approached via a stable-style front door, which opens into a HALLWAY with security alarm and useful CLOAKROOM offering a WC and wash-hand basin, and also includes the gas central heating condensing boiler. The KITCHEN is a well-equipped space with extensive wall and base units, stainless steel bowl and a half sink with chrome mixer tap. All appliances are integrated and include an electric double oven and gas hob, fridge freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. There is also room for a table. The large SITTING ROOM provides a real sense of space, and front aspect windows flood the room with light and offer glimpses of the views beyond. There is understairs storage available, and double doors lead to the adjacent DINING ROOM, with smart wood flooring and part stone tiling adjacent to a wall mounted electrical fire. French doors open out to the terrace and garden.
Returning to the sitting room, stairs rise to the FIRST FLOOR. The current owners have cleverly replaced the spindles for glass banisters, creating a GALLERIED LANDING, connecting the ground and first floors, and maximising the light. The wonderfully high, sloping ceiling evidences some of the original timber beams, which are echoed throughout the bedrooms. The MASTER BEDROOM SUITE comprises a spacious bedroom area with large front aspect window, EN-SUITE SHOWER ROOM with shower cubicle, towel rail, WC and hand-wash basin, and a DRESSING ROOM with extensive fitted wardrobes. At the opposite end of the landing, BEDROOM TWO is a good-sized double room with side aspect window overlooking the garden, and BEDROOMS THREE and FOUR/STUDY look out over the front of the property. The well-fitted BATHROOM offers a bath with hand-held shower, WC, hand-wash basin, and towel rail, and the adjacent airing cupboard can be accessed from the landing.
To the front of the property is a smart lawned area with outside tap, and a side gate leading to the private GARDEN to the side, part of which has been paved to create a PATIO area perfect for al fresco dining. Steps lead up to the main area of garden, which is part-laid to lawn and part-gravelled, with numerous imaginatively planted trees, and a useful SHED. Surrounded by dry stone walling and wooden fencing, the most notable feature of the garden is its complete privacy. Opposite the property is a CARPORT and additional PARKING SPACE.
The property is quietly located on the outskirts of Dorchester approximately 15 minutes walk from the town centre. At the end of the road is a local convenience store, and a public park, perfect for families and dog-walkers, is just a few steps further on. The county town of Dorchester itself is a charming market town steeped in history, set amongst beautiful rural countryside, and within easy access of the coast at Weymouth. Amenities are plentiful and include a mainline link to London Waterloo, the county hospital, cinemas, an arts centre, restaurants, wine bars, and many new businesses located in the nearby Brewery Square development.
From DOMVS' Dorchester office at 15 High West Street, turn right and follow the road down to High East Street and out of town. Just before the bridge, turn right at the traffic lights into Kings Road. Follow this road past the park, and take the second left into Little Britain just before the roundabout. Turn right into the private, gated courtyard, where the property can be found on the left hand side.
