Local amenities are within walking distance and the heart of the County Town is within a mile, where a wide range of facilities for education, entertainment, health and leisure can be found. Local schools include Damers First School. Dorchester Town is most famous for being the County Town of Dorset and being the birthplace of the famous poet and novelist Thomas Hardy in 1840. The life and works of Thomas Hardy form a strong part of the cultural background of Dorchester, which is recognised worldwide as the centre of attraction for students and followers of this great literary figure. The property has good access to Dorchester's surrounding countryside for horse riding, walking and other rural pursuits and the town also lies a short distance to the West of the Purbeck Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The World Heritage Site of the Jurassic Coast is only a few miles away. Sport in the area includes golf at Came Down, Dorchester Cricket, Football and Rugby Clubs and Sailing in the Olympic waters of Portland and Weymouth. Communications are excellent, with main line railway links to London Waterloo and Bristol, cross channel services at Poole and Weymouth, an airport at Bournemouth and, despite the very rural nature of the surrounding area, there is a very effective road network.

The front garden is enclosed by a low wall and a small hedge. There is a path leading to the front door. The rear garden has timber panelled fencing, a paved patio and an outside tap. A path leads through the lawn and gravelled border to the rear with an area laid to bark for storage and a timber garden shed.
