Built in 1897, this handsome late Victorian home of red brick elevations under a slate roof is superbly positioned on a quiet street within easy, level walking distance to Dorchester town centre.

The typically generous room sizes of the Victorian period, along with the moulded cornicing, feature fireplaces and high ceilings create a delightful home.

An elegant Victorian tiled path leads to the front entrance into a vestibule, with a half stained glass door revealing the hall, housing the attractive staircase to the first and second floors. The hall gives access to two charming reception rooms, the kitchen/breakfast room and downstairs cloakroom.

The sitting room with its large box bay window exudes light and space and also boasts an original working cast iron & tiled fireplace in addition to a bespoke fitted book-case that currently separates the two reception rooms.

The kitchen breakfast room is generously sized and again benefits from a few lovely period features, with your eye being drawn to the French doors at the very end of the room that frame the walled, south facing garden to the rear.

To the first floor, the master bedroom, situated at the front, spans the entire width of the house, with its stone mullion bay sash window and original fireplace making for a very light and luxurious space. This room could easily accommodate an en-suite bathroom and dressing area if desired or could also be used as a further reception room, as currently it is arranged.

There is a further double bedroom with feature fireplace and south facing window overlooking the garden; with a third generous single bedroom and family bathroom at this level.

The second floor gives way to a spacious landing area that could double up as a study area/further wardrobe space if required. There are two further double bedrooms and a shower room, providing ample space for a growing family or indeed to provide a private floor to accommodate guests.

There is a small low maintenance garden to the front of the property with low level walled boundaries.

To the side, there is a generous gravelled area, with access to the rear offering good storage.

To the rear side of the house, a sunny courtyard style garden makes for a very private space to relax with a pretty paved terrace leading from the breakfast room complete with pergola & vines providing shade for Al fresco dining. This in turn overlooks the south facing walled garden complete with level lawn and a variety of trees, flower beds and mature border shrubs.

There is a residents' parking permit scheme for roadside parking
