Winterbourne Steepleton, Dorchester DT2 9LQ

Guide Price Of £475,000

An attractive modern detached stone house in a lovely village setting.

Alder House is an attractive modern detached house that was built by the present owner for their own occupation about ten years ago. The part Purbeck stone, part rendered elevations with handmade oak windows and doors give the house a real presence. Good quality fixtures, fittings and joinery inside and the practical room layout further adds to the quality of this fine family home. Downstairs there is a large sitting room with an open fire place and French doors to the garden, a large kitchen/family room with a separate utility room and a cloak room. Upstairs there are three double bedrooms and two bath/shower rooms including an en-suite to the main bedroom. As well as being an attractive home, gas central heading, double glazing and high levels of insulation make this an easy and economical house to manage all in a lovely village setting.

Set nicely back from the lane in an elevated position, a bridge takes you over the Winterbourne and up a shared drive which provides access to the garage and workshop, and to a private gravel parking area in front of the house. At the back the garden slopes up away from the house in a series of well-designed terraces from where there is a lovely view back across the village. Immediately behind the house is a large private terrace area.   

Winterbourne Steepleton is a popular village close to, but well protected from the A37 & A35, just about five miles West of Dorchester. There are pubs and village shops nearby in Winterbourne Abbas and Martinstown, and it is only a short drive over the hill into the county town of Dorchester which has an excellent shopping centre and many other amenities. The village is surrounded by the beautiful country side of South Dorset, with the striking hillfort at Maiden Castle on the door step and the South Coast world heritage site just down the road at Abbotsbury, Chesil Beach and beyond. The walking, riding and cycling in the area is superb. There is a village primary school nearby in Winterbourne Abbas, and middle and secondary schools (Thomas Hardy) in Dorchester. Private schools nearby include Sherborne, Leweston, Bryanston and Canford as well as Perrot Hill and Sunninghill prep schools.

Close proximity to the A35 & A37 makes commuting to the business centres in Bridport, Dorchester, Weymouth, and Poole quite straight forward, and Dorchester has a main line railway station with a fast regular service to London Waterloo.
