Full description

This delightful family home, as its name suggests, was originally the village forge in the 1800's and since then, it has been greatly extended and sympathetically refurbished to create what is undoubtedly a beautifully presented, four bedroom country home set within grounds of just over 0.4 of an acre on the outskirts of the pretty Dorset village of Gaunts Common. Its slightly elevated siting maximises the rural outlook over surrounding farmland from the walled garden and swimming pool terrace!

With rendered elevations and tiled roof, this tastefully remodelled home has retained its origins with a wealth of features including oak strip flooring, timber ceiling beams, recessed fireplaces with fitted Woodwarm woodburners, and quality oak, country style kitchen with exposed feature brickwork, yet with LPG gas heating, discreetly fitted solar panels and a swimming pool heated by airsource, the property has many modern attributes!
With secure gated entrance at the side of the property leading directly to the surrounding grounds and rear of the house, the main entrance door is on the side elevation and opens to a welcoming hallway laid with oak flooring.
On the ground floor, the kitchen overlooks the front of the property and is fitted with a generous range of oak base and wall units with worktop over. A Britannia range cooker is housed within a feature exposed full height brick recess with bressumer beam above and tiled backdrop. Appliances include an integrated Miele dishwasher and integrated larder fridge and there is ample floorspace for kitchen table and chairs. Immediately adjoining is a useful utility room fitted with a range of cream base and wall units and also housing the LPG boiler, as well as space for washing machine, dryer and tall fridge/freezer. Door from utility gives access to a ground floor cloakroom.
Returning to the kitchen, door leads to the dining room, with window looking into the garden room/conservatory and further door leading to the triple aspect sitting room which has a feature recessed fireplace with fitted wood burning stove and double opening glazed doors leading to the delightful and capacious garden room/conservatory laid with mellow limestone flooring and overlooking the grounds to the rear. Two pairs of French doors open to the extensive terrace.
The dual aspect lounge has a feature raised fireplace with fitted Woodwarm wood burning stove set upon a tiled hearth with bressumer beam over and feature lighting within the recess. Plentiful array of ceiling timbers and beams which are similarly fitted throughout much of the ground floor accommodation. Double opening glazed doors lead to the rear terrace.
On the first floor, the master suite comprises a dressing room, with ample private space for a writing desk and adjoining fully tiled ensuite shower room with underfloor heating and fitted with corner cubicle, vanity wash hand basin and a low level WC. The master bedroom has large window overlooking the grounds to the rear. Bedroom two has two windows to the rear elevation as well as one overlooking the terrace, whilst bedroom three overlooks the front of the property. Bedroom four has window to the side elevation and these three rooms are served by the fully tiled family bathroom which is fitted with a corner bath, vanity wash hand basin and semi-concealed WC.
Outside, the grounds extend to just over 0.4 of an acre. Electric double gates lead to a gravelled driveway with large turning area and plenty of space for off road parking and vehicle storage. The detached double garage has electric
up and over doors and a staircase leading to an office/studio with light and power.
The gardens are truly outstanding, with a large terrace laid with sandstone - an ideal spot for outdoor entertaining! A path leads to the large swimming pool surrounded by wrought iron railings and heated by airsource. Mechanics for this, along with LPG storage tank are situated behind the garage. There is also a summerhouse and a timber shed and the remainder of the garden is beautifully landscaped with lawns, established planting, sculpted beds, a garden pond and waterfall, all enclosed by walls and beech hedging.
