DOMVS, in association with Fine & Country, is delighted to offer this BRAND NEW four-bedroom (three-bathroom) home in this understandably popular village. Developer says, "It is important to us to create a property which stands out in its quality, but also stands out as a home; a place simply to enjoy and, equally, to entertain family and friends. We try hard to ensure we succeed."
Charminster is a small, pretty village two miles north of Dorchester, filled with delightful, traditional cottages and historical character. An active, friendly community, Charminster has the advantage of a shop/post office, two pubs, a modern village hall, Norman church and primary school.
The county town of Dorchester is famed for its literary history, weekly market and well-regarded schools. It is also home to the county hospital and mainline stations to London Waterloo and Bristol.
Nearby Weymouth (approx. 20 mins drive) offers breath-taking walks along the Jurassic Coastline as well as an award-winning, golden sandy beach.

Welcome to Garden Lodge, a truly charming home reflecting early 20th Century design. The word ‘lodge’ is believed to have come to Britain with the Normans, deriving from a word for shelter. It has since clung to certain types of building and maintains a quintessential appeal.
This ‘lodge’ is built by Elderberry Construction, whose sole interest has been to create individual homes where quality matters. For them, it is about the finer detail and creating a home of which they, and you, can be proud. This home is no exception and we look forward to showing you the difference.
Guiding you around Garden Lodge, you will first enter the hallway, which has a CLOAKROOM and useful UTILITY ROOM (with back door to the garden). A door leads from the hallway into the KITCHEN/DINING ROOM, which has French doors to the garden and immediately strikes you as the perfect place in which to enjoy entertaining family and friends. To the rear, the SITTING ROOM has a cosy wood burner stove (see specification for choices) with windows either side. In the summer months you can fling open French doors to the patio area also accessed from the kitchen/dining room – outside entertaining at its best. A STUDY, providing a ‘work from home’ space or simple retreat, is just off the hallway.
