Sydling St Nicholas, Dorchester, Dorset DT2 9NX

Price On Application

A CHARMING, DETACHED, GRADE II LISTED PROPERTY IN THIS UNSPOILT, PEACEFUL DORSET VILLAGE.

The Property
The Old School House with brick and flint elevations under a tiled roof is believed to date back to the early 19th Century (circa 1830's). The property was sensitively extended in 1991 and is presented to a particularly high standard. This is a light and spacious family home, with a delightful and well-stocked garden bordering the free flowing Sydling Water, all of which is located in an area of outstanding natural beauty.

Whilst having been well-maintained and modernised to keep up-to date with styles and tastes, the property has retained its Old World charm and offers a wealth of character. A particularly striking feature is the open fireplace with natural stone surround in the drawing room believed to have come from Brympton House in Brympton d'Evercy. Further complimentary features within the room are the five deep recessed window sills, and the very fine bespoke bookcase. The kitchen/breakfast room has a range of ash units as well as a fixed dresser allowing for plenty of storage. There are built-in appliances and the kitchen was recently fitted with a new fan-assisted double oven. The breakfast area and the kitchen look directly onto an extremely enchanting garden. Adjoining the kitchen is a useful utility room with a large, stainless steel sink, with a washing machine beneath it, worktop, five further cupboards and a fridge-freezer. A cloakroom with WC and basin is located next to the utility room. Also on the ground floor is the generous-sized dining room with a southern aspect, and study with south and east facing windows. All these rooms have access to the rear hall where there are useful cupboards, and door leading to the gravelled parking area.

The first floor has a split landing under Velux windows. To the left is the master bedroom with ensuite bathroom (bath, WC and basin). Bedroom 2 on the other end of the house is particularly large, and has a walk-in wardrobe / storage room which, subject to the necessary planning consent, could be turned into a further ensuite bathroom.

The two central bedrooms are also doubles, however bedroom 4 would be considered as a small double. There is also a family bathroom (with bath, WC and basin). The property predominantly benefits from double glazed windows, however the windows to the front are single-glazed due to the listing restrictions.


Outside
The Old School House stands in a quiet no through road overlooking the protected village green, with a stream running alongside the property. It is approached through double gates leading to a gravelled driveway which provides parking for five cars, and in turn leads on to a detached double garage with two up and over doors, power and lighting. Behind the garage, nearest the rear garden, is a spacious tool shed. The garden is an outstanding feature of the property and on the west side borders the free flowing Sydling Water. The garden is stocked with a variety of herbaceous borders, shrubs and trees including silver birch. There is a particularly enchanting Amdega hexagonal cedar wood Summerhouse set on an ornamental brickwork terrace. A well-maintained box hedge helps to maintain privacy. The oil tank and coal bunker are discreetly hidden, and there is a fixed outside water tap.

Location
For anyone wishing to live amongst some of the most beautiful countryside in the South West, it would be hard to surpass this area of West Dorset. Sydling St Nicholas, nestling in the Dorset Downs, is a peaceful, unspoilt village with many character and period properties, and situated within an area of outstanding natural beauty. The village has an active community, and the recently renovated Greyhound public house and restaurant is proving to be very popular. It lies 8 miles north west of the county town of Dorchester and is within easy access of Yeovil and Sherborne, all of which have main line services to London Waterloo. The larger village of Cerne Abbas is only 3 miles away and has a village shop, first school, three public houses and a doctor's surgery.
