A spectacular family home located just outside this popular village of Lytchett Matravers with the advantage of far reaching views across the Purbecks. Parts of the property are believed to date back over 300 years and this character is evident in many of the rooms. The property has just under gone some modernisation with new A rated flush sash windows being fitted throughout. The house offers versatile living space with all principle rooms overlooking the gardens and countryside beyond.
The kitchen / breakfast room is the real hub to this former farmhouse, many enjoyable evenings have been spent around the kitchen table, eating supper whilst the children play outside in the heated swimming pool. The dining room is currently being used as a second living room and has a wood burning stove which keeps the room cosy on winter evenings. The sitting room is particularly light as it is dual aspect with French doors opening on to a large sun terrace and on to the pool. In addition there is a conservatory, study and cloakroom on the ground floor.
Upstairs the landing has two large picture windows to the rear overlooking a neighbouring stable where sheep are currently being kept. The master bedroom is triple aspect and has some of the best views across the Purbecks that the property has to offer; it also has an en-suite bathroom. Three further double bedrooms are serviced by a recently re-fitted family bathroom.
The double garage is integral and has 2 doors allowing easy vehicular access to the drive, in addition there is room above the garage which has in the past been used as a games / hobbies room.
A particular feature of this home is the delightful heated swimming pool, set within the well kept formal gardens and surrounded by a large paved sun terrace allowing the pool area to be enjoyed by both swimmers and those just wanting to sit around the pool and sun bath in the summer months. The pool is heated by an independent boiler housed in a timber pump room.
The house is approached from the side where the drive way provides parking for several vehicles and gives access to the garage. A footpath leads around to the front of the house where there are raised beds and an area of lawn. The rear gardens have mainly been laid to lawn with inset specimen planting. From the lawn a gate leads to the paddock.
Accessed either directly from the main garden or direct from the road the house is situated on. This large paddock benefits from a field shelter and is surrounded by new post and rail fencing and it also has mains water supply. The paddock would be ideal for 'turn out' or, for keeping small livestock, or even just as an additional area for children to enjoy.
The village of Lytchett has a range of shops, a library, pubs, a primary school and the parish church of St Mary the Virgin. (At Domesday the Manor of Lytchett Matravers was held by Sir Hugh Maltravers and it is suggested that he ordered the church to be built in about 1200).
Situated close to the village centre there is a range of local shops, which include a Tesco Express, pharmacy and butchers. There is also a library, Doctors' Surgery, 2 local pubs, historic church and bus services.
