Full description

An unusual lower ground floor 2 bedroom apartment with courtyard style garden to the front and car parking space within a converted Grade II listed period town building close to Dorchester Town centre and the Borough Gardens. EPC exempt.

The apartment forms part of Wadham House, an impressive Georgian style period building with colour washed rendered elevations, with sash windows and ornate balcony under a slate roof. Grade II listed, the property was converted during 2015 into 5 apartments each having parking with a detached coach house to be constructed to the rear. Situated on the lower ground floor, number 1 provides an unusual character apartment with open plan living room, 2 bedrooms and a shower room with the benefit of a courtyard style garden to the front and a yard and outside storage area to the rear. There is an electric central heating system to standard style radiators. Located in High West Street, the town centre, Borough Gardens and riverside walks are all easily assessable.

Thought to be equally suitable for permanent living or as a second home an early inspection of the immaculate accommodation is advised.

Wadham House is situated close to the centre of the town where a wide range of facilities for entertainment, health and leisure can be found. 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 walking and other rural pursuits. The World Heritage Site of the Jurassic Coast is only a few miles away. Communications are excellent, with main line railway links to London Waterloo and Bristol, cross channel services at Poole, airports at Bournemouth, Exeter and Bristol and there is a very effective road network.

From the open plan living area a low door gives access to a barrelled ceiling walkway with door leading to the front courtyard style garden. From the Entrance hall part glazed door leads to a partially covered and paved yard with 2 brick lined cellar style areas 9’3" x 7’2" and 11’1" x 7’4" each having paved floors and barrelled ceilings for useful outside storage. To the rear of Wadham house, approached by a vehicular access by the old library building, is the communal carpark area with designated parking space and 2 visitor’s spaces. This area is shared between the 6 properties of Wadham House. (There is a coach house style house to be constructed within this parking area).
