This property dates from the 1600's and at some point during its history was The Red Cow Inn, which Thomas Hardy used to drink in.
Upon entering the FOYER the character and charm of the building becomes clearly evident; with stone tile flooring, exposed brick and stone walls in most ground floor rooms. The HALLWAY leads to a well-lit flagstone staircase providing access to two cellars; permitting abundant storage.
The KITCHEN/BREAKFAST ROOM is capacious in size and an undoubted feature of the home. With extensive timber wall/ base units as well as solid timber work surfaces. There is also space for a dining table and chairs as well as handy service openings into the dining room and conservatory. The DINING ROOM makes a very charming entertaining space with a cosy multi-fuel stove and access hatch into the cellars also. The CONSERVATORY is truly the focal point of the home; a space well enjoyed by the current owner. The room reaches to nearly the width of the property bringing the outside in. There is also a very handy WET ROOM with WC and hand-wash basin.
The SITTING ROOM is warm and cosy with multi-fuel stove. Off this room is the secondary access to the annexe.
The stairway rises from the foyer to the FIRST FLOOR LANDING (which was formally a bedroom) where 3 bedrooms and the family bathroom are located.
The MASTER BEDROOM situated to the rear of the house is bright and airy, offering ample space for a double bed/ further furnishings. This bedroom has the unique feature of a mezzanine level, which would work well as a snug, playroom, study or dressing room.
BEDROOM 2 to the front offers a good size spacious, bright double room. BEDROOM 3 is a good size double room, again to the front of the property. The FAMILY BATHROOM is well-appointed with a bath WC and hand-wash basin.
The ANNEXE has a well-equipped kitchen, spacious sitting/dining room with understair storage and 2 bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor. The annexe has its own private entrance to the side of the property and it would be very easy (if desired) to allocate some private garden space.
To the rear of the property is a wonderfully landscaped walled garden, with large patio abutting the conservatory, ideal for alfresco dining. There is a large outbuilding with power and lighting as well as a garage. To the side of the property are double gates which lead to the parking for several cars and to the garage. The garden can be conveniently accessed to the rear.
St Georges Road is very conveniently situated for easy access to the town centre. The property is situated on a, soon to become, no-through road. The market town of Dorchester is steeped in history and enjoys some of the country's most noted period architecture, all set amongst beautiful rural countryside with easy access to the coast at Weymouth. Amenities are plentiful and include: mainline rail link to London Waterloo, cinema, arts centre, restaurants, wine bars, hospital and many new businesses located in the nearby Brewery Square development
From our Dorchester office travel down High West Street, turning right just before the bridge onto Kings Road. At the roundabout, take the 1st turning. Immediately after exiting the roundabout take the first left onto St Georges Road. Continue along and the property is located on the left hand side.
