The inviting hallway has been split to create two separate areas to the ground floor and the rooms flow from the Living Room with a polished stone fireplace through to the good sized Dining Room and Study, all with French doors leading out to the garden. The spacious Kitchen/Breakfast Room has plenty of wall and base units with granite work surfaces and breakfast bar and includes an integrated fridge and dishwasher. On the first floor, doors lead out onto a balcony at the front. All of the bedrooms are doubles and have their own fully tiled en suite facility and built in wardrobes with doors out to Juliet balconies that either look out to open countryside views or over the rear garden.
Gardens and Grounds
Gated vehicular access leads to a pea shingle driveway that provides ample off road parking that leads to a DOUBLE GARAGE with remote controlled up and over door, light, power and overhead storage and an adjoining OPEN FRONTED GARAGE that provides further parking for two vehicles. From the driveway, paved steps with lawn to each side lead to the front door with a pillared open storm porch.
The larger rear garden has been beautifully landscaped by the current owners to remain as low maintenance as possible. A large walled semi circular paved patio adjoins the rear of the property with mature shrub borders. A winding stepped gravel pathway takes you through tiered lawns with a variety of specimen plant beds and the elevation gives wonderful views across open Dorset countryside.
