DOMVS, in association with Fine & Country, is delighted to offer this SECLUDED 4 bedroom detached property, set IN APPROX 4.5 ACRES and also providing outstanding EQUESTRIAN FACILITIES, including stables, feed store, all-weather manège and grazing land.
Originally a period cottage and later extended in 2002, it is a testament to the careful design and sympathetic handling of the later extension that this substantial property has considerable appeal providing free-flowing versatile accommodation, in a glorious setting.
The ENTRANCE HALLWAY is airy and welcoming, with a tiled porch area. There is a spacious SITTING ROOM, benefiting from a dual aspect and an inviting inglenook fireplace with log burning stove. Double doors lead to a charming CONSERVATORY which has tiled flooring (with underfloor heating) and provides panoramic views over the surrounding land and gardens, with French doors leading to a timber decked area.
In addition there is a separate STUDY with garden view.
Within the original part of the property, there is a spacious country-style kitchen/family room with inglenook fireplace housing a multi-fuel burning stove. There is a range of duck egg blue shaker-style wall and base units, with an integral dishwasher and fridge, ceramic hob and electric oven. A doorway from this area leads to the formal DINING ROOM. There is also a rear lobby/boot area giving access to a separate UTILITY ROOM, and CLOAKROOM.
Returning to the hallway, stairs rise and turn to a delightful galleried landing on the FIRST FLOOR, where there are four double bedrooms: a particularly light MASTER BEDROOM with built-in 'his & hers' wardrobes, and an ENSUITE BATHROOM with separate shower cubicle, WC and wash-hand basin. BEDROOM THREE has a walk-in wardrobe. Within the older part of the property are BEDROOMS TWO and FOUR together with a modern FAMILY BATHROOM with WC and wash-hand basin.
The property offers an exceptionally rare opportunity for equestrian activities, and the current owner has refurbished and extensively upgraded the former outbuildings to create high specification facilities, including a feed store, garden store, equipment store (with laundry and wc) and 3 excellent stables with non-slip flooring and automatic water dispensers. There is approximately 4 acres of grazing, a field shelter and superb all weather surface manege (20m x 40m). In addition to this, there are a plethora of further outbuildings, including a TRIPLE CAR PORT and large workshop/storage areas. Furthermore, lawned gardens surround the property on 3 sides and include a decked seating/entertaining area.
Winfrith Newburgh is a very popular village lying almost equidistant between the towns of Dorchester and Wareham. Set in the heart of the Purbecks its unique beauty is reflected in its status as a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village itself enjoys many amenities including a convenience store, public house and Post Office, church, pre-school and primary school and an active village hall. It is also close to Lulworth Cove, a natural horseshoe shaped harbour forming part of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site.
