A modern and very stylish house with a stunning interior situated within a popular and sought after Dorset village.
Swallows is a modern detached house which was originally constructed in 1978; the current owners have carried out an extensive refurbishment of both the interior and the gardens; the result has to be seen to be fully appreciated. There is also planning permission to increase the size of the house into a four bedroom property with extra ground floor space (a copy of the plans can be obtained from Humberts who are the sole selling agents).
Attention to detail is evident throughout; the stylish layout and quality interior makes the property ideal for someone that wishes to move straight in to something with no maintenance required.
The accommodation is set over two floors, there is a lovely hallway as you enter through the front door with storage and stairs, a cloakroom, study, dining room and sitting room with sliding patio doors to the garden, wired ceiling speakers and a Handol wood burner. The kitchen is state of the art and opens in to the conservatory, giving a lovely space to entertain. It has a range of built in wall and base cupboards as well as an island unit with quartz work tops over. There are built in appliances such as two wine coolers, Hotpoint double oven, a dishwasher, zip hydro tap (instant hot and cold water) and a ceramic Hotpoint hob with extractor over. A Bloomberg American style fridge/freezer with water dispenser, ice maker and freezer drawers will be included within the sale. Housed in the conservatory is another Handol wood burner and ceiling fan with summer and winter settings. The conservatory roof glass is self-cleaning with tint access to the garden and utility room from here.
On the first floor the landing with airing cupboard (new hot water tank and shower pumps) leads off to all three bedrooms and the principle bathroom which has been completely re modelled. There is built in wardrobes in two of the three bedrooms and views from the rear bedroom windows are wonderful overlooking Hambledon and Okeford Hill.
The front opens on to a tarmac driveway providing plenty of parking in front of the garage and front of the house. The gardens to the front have attractive flower and shrub borders as well as mature planted trees which include a Hawthorn, Eucalyptus and Holly tree fully enclosed with fencing to the front boundary.
The rear garden is a delight there are sweeping lawns, bisected by raised planters, ornamental pond and paved paths. A paved terrace runs across the back of the house with access from the conservatory, sitting room and utility. A further gravelled path with raised vegetable beds leads to a further seating area towards the bottom corner of the garden. Planted fruit trees such as apple, pear, plum and cherry as well as a red grapevine. There is a greenhouse and large fully stocked wood store.
The garden faces East and with is its various areas to sit it becomes a wonderful sun trap to enjoy the warmer months within the garden.
