Built with unwavering attention to detail, this beautiful property provides abundant light and space throughout, and far-reaching countryside views from the first floor.
The front door opens to the spacious HALLWAY, which benefits from Karndene floors and a discreet CLOAKROOM with WC and hand-wash basin. French windows lead to the large SITTING ROOM, which spans the width of the property and enjoys a feature fireplace providing a focal point for the room. A further set of French windows open to the rear garden, flooding the room with light. The formal DINING ROOM also enjoys French windows to the garden, and is well placed adjacent to the kitchen.
The KITCHEN/BREAKFAST ROOM itself is a stunning and well-thought out space with a floor-to-ceiling window providing copious amounts of light and a view to the front aspect. Fine Maple wall and base units are complemented by marble and laminate work surfaces and integral appliances including a dishwasher and large Range. The breakfast area provides plenty of space for a large table and chairs as well as further storage or display furniture. Beyond the breakfast area and open to the room is the stunning CONSERVATORY, with ample room for sofas and chairs, and finished with a cream tiled floor. This breath-taking space allows you to survey almost the entire garden, and with French windows opening onto a pretty patio, this really is the perfect place for entertaining.
Completing the ground floor of the house are a useful UTILITY ROOM with rear access to the garden, and a beautifully-fitted STUDY with extensive book shelves and storage cupboards, along with an integral desk and space for an armchair.
Returning to the hallway, stairs rise to the airy FIRST FLOOR LANDING, which offers loft access and creates privacy between each of the four bedrooms. The glorious MASTER BEDROOM SUITE is vast and luxurious, spanning the width of the property. The spacious EN-SUITE BATHROOM provides a bath, shower, WC, and wash-hand basin, all complemented by a cream tiled floor. A separate DRESSING ROOM offers extensive fitted wardrobes covering two walls, and a window that fills the room with light.
The GUEST SUITE includes a spacious double room with fitted double wardrobe, and an EN-SUITE SHOWER ROOM with shower, WC, and hand-wash basin. BEDROOMS THREE and FOUR are also large doubles, this time served by the FAMILY BATHROOM, which offers a bath, separate shower cubicle, WC, and hand-wash basin. Plans have been drawn up for an extension into the loft space to include a further two bedrooms or a bedroom and sitting room with two bathrooms.
Double gates open to reveal this private, enclosed property, and a large PARKING AREA suitable for three vehicles, with a DOUBLE GARAGE beyond.
The beautiful GARDENS have been imaginatively designed to reflect the high-quality interior of the property; an attractive flagstone path leads to the front door, flanked by creatively-planted herbaceous borders. The path continues beyond the front of the property and leads to a peaceful SIDE GARDEN with a bench, useful garden SHED, and formal flower beds bordered by lavender and interspersed with paved paths. From here, a gate opens to a leafy track leading to the countryside beyond - ideal for dog-walking - and, on the other side of this garden, a further gate within a duck-egg blue PERGOLA opens into the main area of garden, which stretches across the whole of the back of the property. This garden is divided into ‘rooms’, from which the clever planting of a variety of small trees and herbaceous shrubs provides glimpses from one 'room' to another. One lawned area has been creatively turned into a three-hole putting and chipping green, above which an elevated seating area provides the perfect spot in which to enjoy the late-afternoon sun.
Beyond the French windows from the conservatory and dining room, the paved TERRACE winds to a further elevated seating area, and leads you through the garden towards another pergola, beneath which a gate opens onto the parking area. A side door also provides pedestrian access to the garage.
Nestled among houses of a similarly high calibre, the property is in a particularly well-regarded quarter of the village of Charlton Down, approx. four miles north of Dorchester. Originally the site of a Victorian hospital, the village now thrives, offering considerable facilities including a local convenience store, fitness centre, coffee shop, first-class play areas, a cricket pitch, and tennis courts to name but a few. Also nearby is Herrison Hall, an original Victorian ballroom hosting theatre and intimate concerts. Regular bus services provide access to Dorchester, which offers a wide variety of boutique and national shops and eateries, as well as mainline rail links to London Waterloo, a county hospital, and several well-regarded schools.
From DOMVS' Dorchester office at 15 High West Street, head up to the Top o' Town roundabout and take the third exit, sign-posted B3147. Just before the petrol station turn right onto Westleaze, and, after approx. 3.5 miles, turn left onto Herrison Road for Charlton Down. Turn left after the village shop onto Hawthorn Road, which feeds into Poplar Drive. After the bend, turn right into Birch Way where the property can be found on the right hand side just before a layby.
