A substantial and impressive 6 bedroom, 3 storey family home, with the potential for 2 SELF CONTAINED ANNEXES, set in approx, 2 ACRES, occupying a private, peaceful, elevated position, with NO IMMEDIATE NEIGHBOURS and with commanding views over the Dorset countryside. Privately located and yet only 1 mile from the vibrant village of Maiden Newton, first glimpses of The Grange are most striking, with its most impressive, colour-washed elevations, under a tiled roof. It is immediately obvious that a fastidious programme of work has recently taken place taking full advantage of the truly spectacular location, in a tranquil elevated position, on a quiet country lane, with panoramic country views. As soon as the front door opens, there is a real sense of light and space, with the design and layout being given an enormous amount of care and attention to detail with very light and well proportioned rooms. Many of the spectacular rooms have large expanses of glass to make the most of the unspoilt rural views. There are many features worth noting, including the oak framed, vaulted ceiling and inset wood burning stove in the large drawing/dining room. The bespoke family kitchen is also most impressive with granite work surfaces and a variety of built in appliances, including a fridge, freezer, eye level oven and dishwasher. The accommodation is eminently flexible and includes a self contained basement, which is currently used as a cinema room and gymnasium, but would also be ideal for teenagers or an elderly relative, with independent access, as well as a bathroom and kitchenette. The detached coach house also incorporates a studio/bathroom on the first floor, with independent phone/ broadband. There are six bedrooms and four bathrooms which benefit from sealed unit double glazing. The delightful gardens, which are predominantly laid to lawn (for ease of maintenance) with a terrace area and a gate giving access to an area of woodland with a variety of young and mature trees. Double electric gates lead onto extensive gravelled parking/turning area with the adjacent coach house comprising of double garage and double carport. All in all this would make a superb home in a spectacular yet very convenient location.
