5 bedroom detached house for sale

Poundbury, Dorchester, Dorset


Property Description

Full description

This unique and substantial octagonal detached property is superbly situated in the heart of Poundbury, in close proximity to a wealth of facilities. Constructed in 2004, it offers spacious and immaculately appointed accommodation throughout. The ENTRANCE HALL is bright and welcoming, with doors radiating to the ground floor accommodation.   The expansive KITCHEN/DINING ROOM has been specifically designed to maximize ease of use, storage and practicality, with an extensive range of maple wall and base units incorporating integral appliances, including a fridge/freezer, dishwasher, 5 ring gas hob, double ovens and microwave. This entire space is flooded with natural light via French doors leading from the dining area to the superbly landscaped rear garden.    The DINING AREA itself can accommodate a large formal dining table, with additional comfortable seating space. The dining area flows smoothly via an open doorway into the expansive and elegant LIVING ROOM which benefits from a triple aspect; in addition to French doors leading to the rear garden, a limestone fireplace housing a gas fire completes the picture. A door from the living room returns to the hallway, where there is a built-in storage cupboard, capacious ground floor cloakroom and an understair utility/storage area, which has space and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer. Stairs rise and turn to the first and second floors, and from the ground floor hallway, there is a striking upwards vista through the stairwell to the 2nd floor.

To the first floor, a generous landing area with space for seating, has doors leading to the master bedroom and bedroom 2. The MASTER SUITE is unusually large, with the triple aspect providing an abundance of natural light. There is ample space for free-standing furniture, even a chaise longue, in addition to two fitted double wardrobes. A door leads from the bedroom into a stylish EN-SUITE shower room, replete with a fully-tiled double shower cubicle, WC and basin.   Returning to the landing, BEDROOM 2 is a charming double room with a dual aspect, space for free-standing furniture and an inventive, yet discreet frosted glass enclosed WC and basin – creating an ideal guest suite.

Stairs rise and turn to the second floor to a further landing, where doors radiate to the remaining accommodation. BEDROOM 3 is another spacious double room, with a dual aspect giving an appealing rooftop vista, in addition to views over the landscaped gardens which surround the property. BEDROOM 4 is another double room, and BEDROOM 5 is a single room, or an ideal home office/study. The FAMILY BATHROOM is also situated on this floor, and comprises a panelled bath with a hand-held shower, WC, basin and separate shower cubicle. Returning to the landing, there is a capacious built-in storage cupboard and a retractable ladder provides access to the fully-boarded, octagonal loft space.

The walled gardens of this superb residence are a delightful extension of the property’s intriguing design with the creative contemporary landscaping including a delightful decked area which abuts the living room and has as its central focal point a substantial terrazzo table, perfect for outside entertaining. Beautifully flowing from this area is a porcelain tiled octagonal seating arrangement centred around a fire dish. Paved with natural granite, this area has discreet inset lighting and its design very effectively echoes the octagonal shape of the building. The remainder of the garden has been predominantly laid to lawn with carefully chosen planting and other granite paved seating areas to take advantage of the sun as it changes position. The gardens to the front of the property have been equally considered, the design lending an almost Japanese influence; it is filled with a variety of perennial shrubs and plantings, and enclosed by wrought iron fencing. On a practical note, there is a single garage with power and light, in addition to driveway parking in front of the garage, enclosed by double timber gates.

Fast becoming one of the most fashionable residential areas in Dorset, Poundbury is just a short distance from the county town of Dorchester, famed for its literary history and weekly market. It is also within close proximity of two highly regarded local schools, Dorchester Middle School and Thomas Hardye Senior School,   Poundbury itself offers a variety of facilities including cafes, restaurants, public house, vets, doctor's, dentist's surgery, small supermarkets, hairdressers, play-park, and garden centre. There is also a useful mainline station to London Waterloo as well as the County Hospital.

From our office travel up the road to 'Top o' Town' roundabout go straight over until you enter Poundbury. At the 2nd roundabout turn right into Peverell Avenue East proceed along this road, turning left onto Moraston Street just before reaching Dorset Cereals on the right hand side. The property will then be found on the right hand side, clearly identified by our for sale board.
