DOMVS, in assoc. with Fine & Country, is pleased to offer this HANDSOME home within a plot of approx half an acre. GENEROUS accommodation (4347 ft2) on two floors providing 6 beds & 3 baths. A sunny south-westerly facing garden enjoys a high degree of privacy and its discreet location belies its position within the town. Considerable parking.
An extremely handsome example of a 20th century property purposely built in the early 1930's which has been carefully maintained by the current owners. With a floor area of 4347 ft2, it is substantial in size and thereby presents many opportunities for either families with elderly parents, or, given its twin offices with separate external access: for those working from home. In addition it has considerable privacy with mature trees providing screening around the boundary thereby giving it a rather 'country house' feel and yet in the heart of Dorchester: a winning combination.
The ACCOMMODATION is approached by a very generous RECEPTION HALL. With original polished parquet flooring and fireplace, together with a timber carved staircase gently winding up to the first floor, it sets the scene beautifully for the remaining accommodation. A CLOAKROOM is off the hall and heavy timber doors lead to the reception rooms. There are two reception rooms providing a DINING ROOM and also a SITTING ROOM: each having polished parquet flooring, fireplace and a deep bay window overlooking the south-facing rear garden. There are also TWO KITCHENS (originally one was a third reception room and could easily revert). Kitchen 1 has a double oven, gas (4 x burner), plumbing for dishwasher, under counter larder fridge. Kitchen 2 has the following appliances: Neff double oven/grill, a Rangemaster (5 x gas burner), external extractor, and dishwasher. There are TWO OFFICES with their own external access. A rear lobby with external access leads to the UTILITY ROOM, GARDENER'S WC, and LARGE STORE ROOM.
Stairs rise from the reception hall to an extremely generous FIRST FLOOR LANDING which has a copious range of original built-in cupboards providing plentiful storage. From the landing there is access to the insulated loft space.
On the first floor are 6 BEDROOMS in total (one with an ENSUITE FACIILITY), 2 FURTHER BATHROOMS and 2 SEPARATE WC'S. Three of the bedrooms have views over the south-facing garden; each is a generously sized room.
The garden is predominantly south-westerly facing with the whole plot measuring just under half an acre. It is securely bounded to all sides with mature trees providing a high degree of privacy to the extent it is hard to imagine the property is within a town environment. The patio area abutting the main reception rooms is positioned well for the sun. The SWIMMING POOL lies adjacent to a timber CHALET which has power and light. There is a VEGETABLE GARDEN discreetly set aside, and another timber SUMMERHOUSE positioned perfectly for afternoon tea! On a practical note there is a large SINGLE GARAGE with power and light, additional timber STORE and considerable parking. The driveway has been newly tarmacced.
Discreetly positioned within the town with mature trees screening it from the road. Walking access to the town is an undoubted advantage as is the considerable level of parking. The county town of Dorchester itself is steeped in history and enjoys some of the county's most noted period architecture, all set amongst beautiful rural countryside with easy access to the coast at Weymouth. Amenities are plentiful including: mainline rail link to Waterloo, cinema, arts centre, museums, wine bars, schools and the bustling new development at Brewery Square with its wide range of restaurants, shops and future theatre.
