Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A lovingly restored Edwardian house with a lovely garden in a popular village location.

Highlands is an attractive Edwardian village house that has been home to the current owners for just over 12 years. The well organised accommodation is stylishly and immaculately presented, and although the house retains the original period front porch and tiled entrance hall, it is more usually approached from the back where there is a generous dining hall opening directly into a double aspect sitting room and a fabulous fitted kitchen/breakfast/family room. A back hall and cloakroom complete the ground floor and upstairs there are 3 double bedrooms including a master bedroom with ensuite shower room, and a very smart family bathroom. Just beyond the house across the drive there is a traditional brick and weatherboard outbuilding which currently houses the utility room and a garden room, and upstairs a large hobby room and office. Subject to planning permission, this building could easily be converted into an ensuite annexe for guests or an excellent holiday let. As part of the refurbishment a new gas fired central heating system was installed and many of the original hardwood sash windows have double glazed inserts fitted. All in all, this is a charming and spacious family home which also benefits from a potential annexe and a lovely garden.

The well-kept gardens are an important feature of the property and are largely south facing with glimpses of the view across the village towards Okeford Hill. The first part of the garden is mainly laid to lawn with well-kept borders and a number of lovely old mature fruit trees. Across the drive there is a second area of garden surrounded by another tall hedge which has a productive vegetable patch and raised beds. Off this drive there is also another detached outbuilding which is presently a workshop with a tool store, potting shed and a garden store, but it could also be a large single garage.

Highlands is situated close to the centre of the Shillingstone, a thriving and sought after village with a new Co-op convenience store, a petrol station, a weekly post office in the Church centre, a pub (The Old Ox Inn) and a successful primary school. Other local facilities are nearby in Sturminster Newton and for a more comprehensive range of shops and amenities it is only a short drive to Blandford where there is a M&S food hall, Tesco and Lidl. There is excellent walking, cycling and riding in the lovely countryside around the village, the coast is under an hours’ drive away at Poole Harbour and Studland and there are many other good opportunities for sport and recreation in the area.

This part of the west country has become well known for its wide choice of good schools of all types. Blandford, Sturminster and Gillingham all have good state secondary schools and independent schools in the area include Bryanston, Milton Abbey, Sherborne, Canford and Clayesmore, as well as Hanford, Knighton House, Sandroyd and Port Regis prep schools.

Services: All mains services are available at the property. Gas fired radiator central heating and hot water. Good broadband services.
