This beautifully presented, south facing versatile detached 5 bedroom family home has a most idyllic location nestling beneath the surrounding Dorset hills. Set on the edge of the very desirable village of Litton Cheney, in an elevated position with stunning panoramic views of the Bride Valley. The house is surrounded by it’s own grounds in a secluded private situation. This is a truly beautiful property that fulfills the doctrine of location, location, location.

This architect designed house was built in 1994 for the current owner, using quality Purbeck stone with a Cambrian slate roof. Recently refurbished to a high standard with new oak flooring and carpets throughout. There is scope for updating the original large kitchen/breakfast room if required. The house overlooks the garden from the majority of rooms which are principally south facing with large windows giving a very light and airy feel. All windows and external doors are high quality white UPVC double glazed and internal doors are oak and oak/glazed. Rooms are of excellent proportions for a family or for entertaining friends and relatives; of particular note is the bespoke carved Purbeck stone fireplace in the Drawing room.

The Drawing room, Study/Snug and Kitchen/Breakfast room are south facing whilst the generous Dining room faces west. Adjoining the Kitchen/Breakfast room is a large utility/boot room with a sink unit and the oil central heating/hot water boiler. The oak floored Entrance Hall with stairs rising to a generous bright landing leading to 5 double bedrooms. All bedrooms, including the master bedroom with en-suite shower room and dressing room, are very spacious, light and well designed to maximize the beautiful views. There is a family bathroom with shower over the bath and large airing cupboard with potential to convert into a further WC/shower room. The part floored Attic also provides potential for additional accommodation (subject to planning).

This most attractive and picturesque village is at the centre of the Bride Valley within a justifiably designated Area of Outstanding Beauty, adjoining the Jurassic Coast. There is an active community based around the parish church of St Mary’s, Thorner’s School, Village Hall and the White Horse public house.
The Jurassic Coast is only 3 miles to the south with popular West Bay within cycling distance. The award winning market town of Bridport is 6 miles to the west, the county town of Dorchester 9 miles to the east both with excellent facilities including Waitrose stores, schools restaurants and cinemas. Sherborne with its excellent public schools is only a 20 minute drive away. Rail access to London and Bristol is from the two train stations in Dorchester. The Airports of Exeter, Bristol, Bournemouth and Southampton are all easily accessible.

Timber Double Garage 17’ 3” x 17’
Garden Store 10’ 6” x 6’ 7”
Adjoining Fuel Store 8’ 1” x 6’ 7”

A timber gated entrance leads to a brick and gravel drive, garage and ample parking.

The attractive garden extends to the front and sides of the property with a variety of well stocked shrubs and trees affording considerable privacy with boundaries predominately of beech hedging. To the west side is a raised sheltered sun terrace with lighting and power points ideal for alfresco dining. The south facing terrace is serviced from the Kitchen/Breakfast room and Study/Snug. The Store room to the east of the house is divided into a secure fire-proof fuel oil store with a steel secure personnel door and a garden shed with an up and over door giving excellent access for a ride on lawn mower etc. There is a small disused garden below the main garden which was accessed via a set of steps; it would not take long to bring this space back into a kitchen garden.

In total the property extends to just over ONE QUARTER of an ACRE (0.1ha).
