Built in 1976 for a local family, the intention at the time was to create a family home that would very much
blend into the surroundings of this pretty North Dorset Village which boasts an array of charming thatched cottages. The fašade to the front elevation therefore gives little away as to the extent of the property or the
superb plot and river frontage that it enjoys to the rear elevation.
The original property was therefore cottage style in design and provided extensive family accommodation. The current owner obtained planning consent to extend the property and create Guest/Annexe Accommodation, the building of which was completed in 2006.
Much of the accommodation has been updated and now consists of a superb Kitchen/Dining/Family Room with extensive array of solid wood fitted units, a central island unit which houses the 2 oven oil fired Aga, Bosch 5 Burner Gas Hob and Double oven. These units have been topped with stone work surfaces and a further array of integrated appliances including a Zanussi fridge/freezer and Bosch dishwasher. The separate Dining area and space for family living make this the heart of the main house.
The Sitting Room is accessed either via the Entrance Hall or by double doors from the Kitchen/Dining/Family Room. It has an open fireplace with inset multi fuel stove either side of which are built in units. This room is triple aspect with windows to the front and side elevations with double doors to the rear opening out onto the terrace and garden. There is a Cloakroom off the Entrance Hall and a further Cloaks/Shower Room off the Utility Room which boasts an extensive range of fitted units as well as space and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer. The oil fired boiler which supplies central heating and hot water to the main house is located in the Utility Room with the Ground Floor Annexe/Guest Accommodation having a separate oil fired boiler and oil tank. Electricity for the house and Annexe/Guest Accommodation is however a single supply. On the First Floor of the main house the Master Bedroom Suite comprises of a Dual Aspect Bedroom with Fitted Wardrobes to one end and capacious Ensuite Bathroom with further storage/wardrobe space and lovely views to the front elevation towards the Village Church.
There is a Family Bathroom, and further Bath/Shower Room that is Ensuite to one of the Bedrooms as well as being available to the other two Bedrooms on this Floor.
The property also boasts a range of Outbuildings including a Garden/Games Room with Mezzanine Floor, Covered Porch and Workshop to one side, a Childrens' Play House and Timber Storage.
