DESCRIPTION

Gables is a marvellous rural home which enjoys a stunning position on the edge of the Marshwood vale, surrounded by open countryside with far-reaching views. Dating back to the 1870s, this wonderful property offers spacious and well proportioned accommodation. With generous grounds amounting to just under an acre and nothing beyond the boundary but open fields, the immediate impression upon arrival is one of seclusion and privacy. Great attention has been paid to taking full advantage of this so that the property offers a sensational indoor/outdoor lifestyle alongside every convenience required by the busy modern family.

Entering the property through the front door, the sociable emphasis of the accommodation is immediately noticeable as you are welcomed into an expansive entrance hall, from which the cloakroom can be accessed. Moving from here into the sitting room to the right, which benefits from a Jetmaster fireplace, or the kitchen and dining room to the left, where there is a gas woodburner, the benefits of the property's elevated position come into focus; incredible views can be enjoyed from every rear-aspect window, particularly in the garden room which adjoins the sitting room and features glass bi folding doors. Another key feature of the living accommodation is the suitability for every day family enjoyment and entertaining alike, with a comfortable and charming room available for every occasion. Great versatility is offered on the ground floor with two interlinking studies, the largest of which adjoins the garden room. A bathroom has been installed en suite to the innermost study, giving potential for use as a ground floor bedroom, should single storey living be required, or as a multi-room home office.

From the entrance hall, stairs rise to a wide first floor landing from which four generous double bedrooms, a family bathroom and a separate shower room can all be reached. The three largest bedrooms benefit from built in storage, and the principal bedroom also enjoys a well appointed en suite shower room. As can be expected, the views can be enjoyed to their fullest advantage from bedrooms 1 and 2, which both feature rear aspect windows.

 

Domestically, the property offers a host of useful conveniences, including a large utility/boot room in which plumbing for the laundry facilities can also be found. The kitchen is fitted with attractive, traditional style units beneath granite work surfaces with spaces for the usual appliances, including a range style cooker. A further asset to the kitchen is the large larder cupboard which provides plentiful storage as well as spaces for tall appliances.

OUTSIDE

Gables is surrounded by established, primarily level grounds which suggest multiple excuses for spending time out of doors. From the public road, an electric gate opens to the driveway on which parking and turning space for a number of vehicles is available. To the front of the property is a mature lawn, interspersed with a variety of flora, and an enclosed area with raised beds, suggesting the opportunity to grow produce and achieve a touch of the good life . Also in the front garden are two charming stone outbuildings which provide useful storage but offer great potential for conversion to a home office, hobby space or annexe accommodation (STPP), ideal for those with extended family, grown up children or desiring an income stream via holiday letting etc. Further amenities at the front of the property include a large garage with sliding vehicle doors, a plant room and a wood store, ensuring ample storage for garden furniture and equipment.

 

The majority of the garden is arranged to the rear as an expansive pleasure lawn with a paved sun terrace abutting the house, onto which doors from each of the reception rooms lead. Opportunities for al fresco dining, relaxing and entertaining are plentiful, all with the stunning backdrop of the West Dorset countryside. Whilst privacy abounds throughout the entire garden, the Mediterranean-style walled courtyard, complete with hot tub, offers the last word in outdoor seclusion, perfect for times when only a sense of complete removal from the outside world will suffice.
