Kington Magna is a popular Dorset village, 7 miles from Shaftesbury in the heart of the Blackmore Vale. This area was described very well by Thomas Hardy as “the vale of the little dairies” because of the productive pastureland it provides. The village has an active Village Hall and charming Church of All Saints is in the Early English style and has a square embattled tower. The views from the church grounds are both far reaching and spectacular. The Western edge of the Parish borders with Somerset and the adjoining Parish of Buckhorn Weston has the award winning Inn, The Stapleton Arms.
Purchased by the current owners some 25 years ago the plot consisted of an extraordinarily large garden and dilapidated bungalow. Our vendors then obtained Planning permission to demolish the existing property and replace it with a well thought out cross shaped bungalow to increase the natural light into all rooms and create an exceptionally spacious Entrance Hall off which the accommodation can be found.
The bungalow has Shearstone elevations under a pitched clay tile roof whilst the Detached Double Garage has Ibstock Golden Multi brick elevations under a double hipped clay tiled roof. An old outbuilding has been replaced to create a detached Workshop/Store which has cavity walls, an insulated roof space, power and light. This exceptional space offers potential for a number of uses including games or craft room, home office or Annexe Potential subject to the necessary consents.
There was tremendous attention to detail throughout the construction process which was carried out to a very high standard. Ceiling heights throughout the property are 8’6 (2.6m) adding a feeling of light and space to the accommodation and all windows with the exception of the patio window are mahogany. Externally the bungalow and outbuilding have been designed to require no maintenance to gable verges.
Possibly requiring some updating, this property is of exceptional build quality and is presented in very good order throughout.
Externally the 3.31 acres of gardens and grounds are an absolute delight with our clients having created a wonderful parkland setting to the rear elevation with wonderful views of the surrounding Countryside beyond on all sides. An array of specimen trees worthy of an arboretum including, oaks, maples, hornbeams, malus, alders, chestnuts, hollies, mountain ash and cherries lend colour, interest and texture to the gently sloping rear garden which is a magnet for wildlife and birds.
This is a must view property to appreciate its setting, the quality of build and potential that it possesses. A real gem, which offers space and versatility for the next owner.
