In an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, a peacefully located individual modern house, within walking distance of excellent village facilities.
Netherway is an architect designed individual house, built to our Clients specification in 1999. By any measure, it is a comfortable and well appointed house, with oil-fired central heating and UPVC sealed unit double glazing. On the ground floor an entrance hall with a handsome staircase gives access to a cloakroom and a study. Double doors from the hall open into the sitting room, which has a double aspect and is focused on a beamed brick fireplace with wood burning stove. Double doors from this room also connect through to the conservatory, which again has a double aspect, and French casements out to the garden. The kitchen/dining room which is very much the heart of the house has been beautifully refitted in 2014, and includes an island unit enabling anyone working in the kitchen to take in the views over the garden. Double doors connect the kitchen/dining room with the conservatory. A large utility room provides plenty of storage, and a door connecting through to the garage/workshop. Much of the ground floor has laminate flooring.
On the first floor, the landing has a galleried staircase leading up to an attic flexi-room, with rooflights, ideally suited as hobby space, a work from home office, children's rumpus room or occasional fourth bedroom. The principal bedroom takes full advantage of the views, and is served by a well fitted ensuite shower room. There are two further bedrooms on the first floor, served by a large bathroom. All the bedrooms enjoy a view, either of the farmland to the rear, or across the playing field to the lightly wooded fields beyond.
At the front of the house is a parking area for several cars. Adjacent to this is a garage/workshop with a connecting door through to the utility room. Most of the garden lies to the rear of the property, and comprises a level lawn looking out over the farmland of the Blackmore Vale. The lawn is shaped by well stocked borders, and set against mature hedges and fencing. To one side there is an aluminium greenhouse, together with raised beds for vegetables and soft fruit. At the bottom of the garden is an arboured and screened barbeque and entertaining area. Wood Store.
The property occupies a peaceful position with views both front and rear in the popular village of Buckland Newton. Buckland Newton has an excellent shop, primary school, village hall and church, all of which lie within walking distance of Netherway. It is a vibrant village, set at the head of the Piddle Valley, in an area designated as being of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Stretching to the west is the Blackmore Vale, whilst to the south is the rolling chalk downlands for which this central part of the county is well known. There is some excellent walking from the doorstep, and it is easy to attain the hilltops and the fine views to be had over the locality. The B3413 which runs through the Piddle Valley connects the village to the county town of Dorchester, and the Abbey town of Sherborne. Sturminster Newton, Blandford and Yeovil are also within commutable distance. The Jurassic coast is also within easy driving distance, and there are mainline railway stations at Dorchester and Sherborne, both connecting with London Waterloo.
