Full description

Thought to date from the early 1800s, this property, set on a quiet village road, has been lovingly extended and improved by the current owners, who have carefully retained the sense of period character to create an appealing family home. The front door opens into the side ENTRANCE HALL, off which is a useful UTILITY ROOM with base and wall-mounted units, plus a sink and drainer. Adjacent is the SECONDARY SITTING ROOM, a large, bright room benefitting from French doors opening onto the rear garden and terrace. Due to the convenient proximity to the kitchen, this room would also make a delightful formal DINING ROOM. The spacious KITCHEN/DINING ROOM, comprises feature exposed brickwork and plentiful wall-mounted and base units, cooker, and sink with drainer, plus ample space for a range of white goods. From here, a door leads to the INNER HALLWAY, which in turn provides access to the principal SITTING ROOM. The oldest part of the property, this handsome room boasts an unprecedented amount of space, and period features including high ceilings with beams, two fireplaces, attractive exposed brickwork, and the original front door.

Double doors lead from the sitting room to the STUDY, which offers a door to the rear garden, and a window overlooking the inner hallway. Returning to the inner hallway, a door opens into the FAMILY BATHROOM, with suite compromising a large corner bath, separate shower cubicle, WC, and hand-wash basin. Stairs rise from the inner hallway to the FIRST FLOOR LANDING, off which is an airing cupboard, and doors to all four bedrooms. The large MASTER BEDROOM benefits from two windows enjoying views over the rear garden and rolling fields beyond, and an EN-SUITE BATHROOM comprising bath, WC, and hand-wash basin. BEDROOMS TWO and THREE are both double rooms in the old part of the property, and offer beautiful period fireplaces and exposed beams, with bedroom three also benefitting from a dual aspect. BEDROOM FOUR is single room with a side aspect.

To the front of the property is an area of garden, and a DRIVEWAY leading to the LARGE DOUBLE GARAGE with workshop, with power, light, and a separate door to the rear terrace and garden. An internal ladder leads up to the FIRST FLOOR of the garage, which provides a large, carpeted space with triple-aspect windows, radiators, under-eaves storage, and the potential to be converted into secondary accommodation. Beneath the garage is a useful STORE, accessed via double doors from the rear. The FRONT GARDEN leads round to the other side of the property, where there is a pretty pergola, and a graveled area suitable for bin storage. A gate leads from here to the adjacent lane.

The REAR GARDEN is predominantly laid to lawn and enclosed by hedging and fencing. Steps leads up to a raised TERRACE abutting the rear of the property, partly enclosed by pretty ironwork fencing.

Tolpuddle is a village steeped in history, famous for its association with The Tolpuddle Martyrs. Much of the village falls within a Conservation Area and, therefore, retains many of its unspoiled period properties. Tolpuddle has a strong sense of community, with a vibrant village hall offering a variety of events and activities throughout the year, as well as a well-regarded public house/restaurant. The village is in close proximity to Puddletown, where amenities include a small supermarket, post office, and first school, and is ideally located for easy access to the county town of Dorchester, and London and the South East via the M27.

From DOMVS’ Dorchester office at 15 High West Street, turn right and follow the road downhill, passing through three sets of traffic lights and continuing on until you reach the Kingston Maurward roundabout. Take the first exit onto the A35 dual carriageway and, after several miles, take the turning signed to Puddletown and Tolpuddle. As you reach Puddletown, continue through the traffic lights and village, following signs to Tolpuddle. On reaching Tolpuddle, proceed through the village. After passing Hammett Close on the right, the property can be found on the right hand side just past the private road, Cornfields.
