Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A stunning contemporary house in a rural location finished to an excellent specification with far reaching views to the south and standing in 1.66 acres. NO ONWARD CHAIN.

Maraleen is a stunning contemporary home completed in 2015 and built of local Marnhull stone elevations under a pitched slate room. The build was designed by Western Design Architects and is vernacular in form but incorporates subtle contemporary details. Planning permission was granted in 2010 for a replacement dwelling and the property was designed to reflect a simple farm courtyard, suited to the surrounding open countryside. The orientation off the new house maintains the north-south axis of the original. The north and east elevations which face the lane were kept simple with minimal fenestration to maintain occupier privacy and prevent heat loss through north facing glazing. The principal elevation faces south west and includes a large facade of glazing to benefit from the panoramic views over the surrounding countryside to the hills beyond and to maximise the opportunity for solar gain. The principal living room is on the first floor to make the most of the views and is a stunning room 26'10" x 19'7" and open to full height. The master bedroom and shower room are also on the first floor. Kitchen and dining spaces are on the ground floor giving good access to the external private amenity spaces. There are two further double bedrooms, bathroom and snug along with utility, larder and cloakroom. The house has an excellent fitted kitchen, oak front door and staircase, Marnhull stone floor and underfloor heating on the ground floor. The house is also extremely energy efficient with air source heat pump and solar panels providing an income of about £2000/year.
Outside is a large double garage, enclosed front and rear gardens and paddock with the whole being about 1.66acres.

The property is approached via a 5-bar gate on to a drive with parking and turning for several cars. There is a large double GARAGE/WORKSHOP. A covered walkway and veranda leads to the back door and rear of the house where there is a second entrance and plenty more parking. The main garden is to the south and has a terrace, neat lawn and fencing. Further to the south is the paddock of about 1.21 acres with the whole being about 1.66 acres.

Maraleen is situated in this small hamlet between the towns of Sturminster Newton and Shaftesbury and nestles in glorious Dorset countryside. The hill top Saxon town of Shaftesbury has a delightful high street with a collection of fine historic buildings and excellent range of independent shops and boutiques. Sturminster Newton is a traditional market town. The town has a weekly market on Mondays, a range of shops including traditional butchers and delicatessen, supermarket, banks, pubs, library, doctor and dental practices, health centre, churches and schools. The town also has a recreation ground and the surrounding area has some fantastic walking countryside. The large village of Marnhull is about 3 miles to the North West also has a range of shops and amenities including primary schools. Gillingham about 10 miles, has a mainline station to London Waterloo.
