  • Bedrooms: 4
A handsome detached contemporary village house to the centre of the Bride Valley, within a sought-after village. The property is understood to have been built in 1994 by the well-known local developer C G Fry with warm local stone elevations under a slate roof. The property sits to the middle of a peaceful rural village conveniently located within a short drive of both the county town of Dorchester with mainline railway station and the coastal town of Bridport.

In 2000 the property was substantially extended creating a lovely garden room across the rear of the property and extending the existing kitchen creating a large additional living space allowing the gardens and views to be enjoyed all year round. The accommodation is conventionally arranged with a reception hall to the front of the house, with to one side a study that would make an ideal home office away from the bustle of the rest of the house. Beyond there is a large dining hall which in turn flows through to the garden room. To the right hand side there is a sitting room with an open fire place as its focal point and double doors out into the garden room and to the left hand side there is a fitted kitchen.

The kitchen is equipped with a comprehensive range of floor and wall mounted units and cupboards with a built-in electric double oven, a halogen hob and space for a dishwasher, a fridge freezer and an everyday dining table. The kitchen is laid to ceramic tile. Behind the kitchen is a useful utility room that has plumbing for a washing machine and a tumble dryer, with an outside door to one side and cloakroom to one corner. The garden room provides the main daytime living space with southerly views out over the garden and countryside beyond through double doors. Upstairs there are four good bedrooms, three of which have built-in wardrobes. The main bedroom has the added benefit of an en-suite shower room. The family bathroom has a double sized walk-in shower and a separate bath. Both the en-suite and the family bathroom have recently been refurbished in some style with quality fittings including Roca, RAK, Hans Grohe and Vado and Karndean flooring in both bathrooms.

The house is in the process of being updated with many of the South-facing windows to the rear of the property being replaced in the next few months. The garden room is going to be retiled and the bathrooms and the remainder of the property will be re-decorated.

To the front of the property there is a vehicular access and a pedestrian gate. The pedestrian gate gives way to a paved path bisecting an area of lawn leading up to the front door with herbaceous and shrub planting to one side with the garden area enclosed by hedge. The vehicular entrance leads down the left-hand side of the property along the gravel drive to parking and turning and access to a double garage equipped with twin up and over doors, light and power. The consumer unit has just been replaced in the garage. The gardens are a particular feature of the property and face South with an attractive paved terrace immediately to the rear of the property topped by a vine-covered pergola, beyond which the lawns sweep out in a southerly direction. Running along the right hand side of the garden are a series of attractive well stocked herbaceous and shrub borders. Within the garden are a number of high yielding fruit trees. On the left hand side to the rear of the garage there is a well-organized vegetable garden, complete with a greenhouse and timber shed. To the end of the garden there is a second shed useful for storage.

Agents Note

The property has in the last year undergone works to correct the southwest corner of the garden room. The garden room was the extended part of the house with the southwest corner being positioned on an area of soft clay hence the problem. The underpinning works are complete, funded by Royal and Sun Alliance and the benefit of the policy can be transferred to the purchaser if so required.
