Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Cloud Nine lives up to its name; it is an individual, stylish and rather special place to be. The original house was purchased about 10 years ago, but has since been transformed to create a fabulous country home with a unique contemporary feel and beautifully presented flexible accommodation.

From the entrance hall, an oak and glass staircase rises to a spectacular open plan living space with a vaulted ceiling, oak flooring and balconies on both sides of the room. The wide French doors and windows on the rear elevation provide a particularly spectacular vista across the gardens to the open countryside beyond. At one end of the living area double oak doors open into a spacious 2nd reception room, and at the opposite end there is a fabulous contemporary kitchen and dining area. The kitchen as a good range of built in units with granite worktops and Siemens built-in appliances including and induction hob, double oven, warming drawer, and a Quooker instant boiling water tap.

Downstairs there are 3 or 4 generous double bedrooms including a master bedroom suite with French doors to the garden, a large bathroom and a dressing room. Off the entrance hall, the garden room with French doors could easily be enclosed to create a 4th bedroom. A smart family bathroom and generous utility room complete the ground floor.

The use of natural oak internal joinery and flooring, and exceptionally good kitchen and bathroom fittings are a testament to the quality of the house, and the underfloor heating, additional insulation and latest double-glazed windows and doors make it a super-efficient and economical house to manage. Cloud Nine is a truly fabulous home where the space, light and vies of the main living are complemented by the additional reception rooms and bedrooms to provide comfort and flexibility for a wide range of occupiers, from busy families and daily commuters, to retiring downsizers and even weekend country retreaters.

Outside; Set back from the lane behind a wide gravel forecourt, the gardens are another striking feature of the property and a testament to the hard work and creative skill of the owners. Sparse planting of grasses and succulents around the forecourt give a Mediterranean feel but at the back, raised beds and a modern take on a parterre are all stocked with more traditional plants, shrubs and colourful perennials to give more of a cottage garden feel. The large timber deck provides an excellent area for entertaining or just to sit and take in the fabulous views. The main house is complimented by a good range of outbuildings, including an oak frame double car port with a secure storage area, and adjoining the house a large secure workshop which could easily be converted to provide a separate office space.

Situation; Conveniently situated on the edge of Tarrant Launceston and close to Tarrant Monkton, another pretty village well known for the Langton Arms pub and restaurant, Cloud Nine is surrounded by the distinctive and beautiful rolling countryside of Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Although the four Tarrant villages at this end of the valley (Gunville, Hinton, Launceston and Monkton) are very rural they are by no means isolated and there is a thriving community in the valley. Launceston is the smallest of the villages but there is a church, busy village hall and a pub in Tarrant Monkton and a rather good wine shop up the valley in Tarrant Hinton. The pretty Georgian market town of Blandford Forum is only a short drive away by car or by bus and has a good range of shops and other amenities, and for a wider range of amenities Salisbury and Poole are within half an hour’s drive.

Communication links around the village are excellent. The business centres along the south coast from Poole and Bournemouth through to Southampton are all within easy driving distance and the A31 is nearby providing a quick link to the M27 and M3 up to London. The surrounding countryside provides many good opportunities for sport and recreation with excellent walking riding and cycling all around, and the coast from Poole harbour across to the Jurassic Coast is about ½ an hour’s drive away. This area has also become extremely popular because of the wide selection of schools at all levels. There is a village primary school nearby in Pimperne and good secondary schools in Blandford and Wimborne as well as Poole Grammar School. An excellent choice of public schools in the area includes Bryanston, Milton Abbey, Canford, Clayesmore and prep schools at Castle Court, Sandroyd and Knighton House.

Services: Mains water and electricity are available at the property. Private drainage (septic tank). Oil fired boiler serving an under-floor heating system.
