An imposing and beautifully presented five bedroom family home built to the highest standards in a stunning rural location with wonderful views. Gardens and Paddocks. In all totalling 3.12 acres (1.26ha).

Stoke Wake House is a beautifully designed and crafted house built to a very high specification with extremely light and airy accommodation making the most of the outstanding views. The property boasts high quality fixtures and fittings throughout with the internal accommodation totalling approx. 6000 sq. ft. and is spread over three floors. The ground floor comprises a stunning entrance hall, a lounge with a lovely large fireplace and wood burner, a very spacious and beautifully equipped family kitchen/breakfast room all of which share the fantastic views over the Blackmore Vale and way out past the Dorset Gap. Additionally, on the ground floor, there is large double bedroom with a fully tiled en suite shower room, a useful large utility room and a cloakroom/airing cupboard area.
The first floor similarly has a wonderfully light and spacious feel with a superb galleried lounge with feature oak beams and full height windows to take advantage of the magnificent views. The master bedroom has a dual aspect with French doors, a Juliet balcony, a walk-in wardrobe and a most luxurious bathroom. There are three further double bedrooms each with high quality en suite fittings. Both the ground and first floors enjoy the comforting warmth of the underfloor heating system.
From the hall, an oak staircase leads to the lower ground floor where there is an office area, a large gymnasium as well as a dedicated cinema room with a full ceiling height screen and matching sound system. There is an equipped games room of approx. 19 ft. by 19 ft. and a most useable cavernous storage area of over 3,800 ft³ which ideally lends itself to either domestic or a business storage purpose. This area also houses all the major mechanical services for the building.

Stoke Wake House is approached through the electric gates to a gravelled parking and turning area and which continues to the rear of the house. There is a newly constructed timber stable block and the current owners have planning permission in place for a large oak framed double garage. The gardens are mainly laid to lawn to the front, side and rear of the house and with a wonderful south-facing terrace enjoying simply miles of uninterrupted views. In total, the property extends to over 3 acres with two well fenced paddocks to the rear.

Stoke Wake House sits well within the hamlet and is in the very heart of rural Dorset. The property is surrounded by some of the finest countryside in the county and is in a convenient location for the towns of Sturminster Newton, Sherborne, Dorchester, Blandford, Poole and Wareham. The local surrounding villages offer a wide range of all the usual amenities with some very highly regarded inns being just a few minutes drive away. Furthermore, the property enjoys the benefit of being within very easy reach of at least twelve of the finest independent schools in the area. Sherborne and Dorchester have mainline stations with fast services to London Waterloo.
