Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Arguably the finest house in Dorchester, a most handsome listed Grade II* Georgian property in the heart of the town.
South Lodge is justifiably listed Grade II* being of architectural importance and is undoubtedly one of, if not the finest house in Dorchester, the county town. Constructed in circa 1750, this handsome Georgian town house was designed by the famous Bastard Brothers, whose other notable achievements include the design and re-building of central Blandford Forum following a large fire in 1731.
This fine town house has handsome Stucco elevations to the front with classic symmetrical balance, sash windows and parapet with dormers providing second floor accommodation. Internally the house has some impressive rooms including a
fine reception hall with Chinese Chippendale style staircase and flagstone floor, a beautiful reception room with fine Rococo plaster work, wood stripped floor and fireplace, a dining room with marble fireplace and a kitchen with Aga.
On the first floor there is a master bedroom suite, nursery (potential bedroom) and a fine drawing room with a further three bedrooms and box room on the second floor, a bathroom and shower room.
South Lodge is approached from a no through road which gives access to a gravelled area of parking sufficient for several cars and access to garaging. To the front, which faces south, the garden is predominantly laid to lawn with a tall beech hedge providing privacy with brick walls on the other boundaries. The garden is mature and planted
out with some fine shrubs and plants as well as some impressive mature trees including a Copper Beech and a Whitebeam. Also to the front is an attractive ornamental pond with fountain. On the western boundary is a terrace which runs to the rear boundary accessed from the kitchen and
conservatory. A secluded folly on the back boundary has fine views to the church and tower beyond. A rear lawn and planted border can be accessed from the back of the house and there is also a path with pedestrian access to the town.
