An impressive beautifully proportioned, modern house with a useful annexe in a very good location A superb modern detached house with a unique style and superbly proportioned accommodation, Tannery House was built just over 20 years ago as part of the well-planned redevelopment of the nursery site, in a great location on the edge of the village. The current owners have maintained and presented the house beautifully and the exceptionally well-proportioned accommodation features: an impressive entrance hall with a 33ft drawing room with an open firepace to one side and a glass walled dining room to the other. Beyond this there is a kitchen and breakfast room, a cloakroom and separate utility room. Upstairs there are 5 double bedrooms with 3 full bathrooms (2 ensuite). All of this is supplemented by an excellent annexe at the bottom of the garden which is currently laid out with a large open plan workspace or living area with a kitchenette and a shower room, and upstairs a bedroom or storage area. The annexe and all this space (around 3,800 sq/ft) makes Tannery House a perfect option for combined living and working, with great family and entertainment space and a very convenient location. Set nicely back from the road along private cul de sac, a set of electric gates then open on to a private gravel drive which provides an attractive approach to the house. Off the drive, to one side of the house there is a garage, a carport and good access to the garden on both sides. The gardens are an important feature of the house and facing east and west at the back and front respectively they can be enjoyed with a good degree of privacy and are a testament to the hard work of the current owner. There are large well-kept lawns and beautiful tended boarders with a mixed display of shrubs, plants and specimen trees, and the east/west configuration means some part of the garden is in the sun throughout the day. Tannery House is situated in a quiet cul-de-sac on the outskirts of Charlton Marshall, a popular and thriving village on the banks of the River Stour, a couple of miles south of Blandford Forum. The village has a thriving community with a public house, The Charlton Arms, and a busy village hall. For everyday shops and services, it is only a short drive in to Blandford Forum with its attractive Georgian market square and excellent range of services and amenities, including an M&S Food Hall and a Tesco Superstore on the edge of town, only 5 minutes away by car. Communication links from the village are excellent and Charlton Marshall is only a short distance north of the Poole/Bournemouth/Christchurch conurbation, which makes the village hugely convenient for people who work in that area. Commuting is straight forward, and easy access on to the A31 also provides a quick link to the M27 for Southampton and Portsmouth, and the M3 up to London. Bournemouth and Southampton airports are easily accessible and Bournemouth station has a fast regular train services to London Waterloo (about 2 hours). The village is surrounded by lovely countryside and a brisk walk will take you down along the river valley or up to Cranborne Chase and the rolling countryside that this part of Dorset is famed for, much of it being an Area of Outstanding Natural beauty (AONB). There are many good opportunities for sport and recreation in the area with excellent walking, riding and cycling all around, numerous good courses and plenty of other sports clubs in and around Blandford Forum and Poole.
