Light & spacious detached village house with stream side gardens




A fantastically spacious four-bedroom detached village house with light, well-proportioned rooms and delightful gardens in a pretty stream side setting. Alder House is tucked at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac in the pretty village of Drimpton. Of particular note is the spacious sitting room with dining area, with triple aspect windows and two sets of French doors leading to the sunny decked terrace and well-kept gardens which lead down to the stream. The property has a good sized kitchen with the added bonus of a separate utility room, and a ground floor WC as well as a versatile study which could equally be a ground floor fifth bedroom. On the first floor the master bedroom benefits from an en suite shower room and there are three further double bedrooms, two of which have views over the stream, and family bathroom. The integral garage gives good flexibility for the potential of conversion subject to the necessary planning consents. All in all, this would make a wonderful primary or secondary home in an idyllic and very convenient location. To the front of the property is an extensive brick paved driveway with parking for circa four cars and access to the integral single garage. The delightful south facing gardens are easily maintainable with well stocked mature borders. The beautiful conservatory leads to the sunny decked terrace and upper lawn. A decorative rose covered archway in the post and rail fencing then leads down some steps to the lower stream side lawn making for a very pretty and unique setting indeed. The small village of Drimpton on the Dorset/Somerset border has an active community, including a public house, church and village hall and is surrounded by glorious countryside, with the Jurassic coast just 11 miles away. The nearest shop is the community stores in the larger neighbouring village of Broadwindsor, just 2 miles away. The charming small town of Beaminster, with its schools, good restaurants, boutiques, two doctors' surgeries and small supermarket is within 5 miles. The larger towns of Bridport, Lyme Regis and Crewkerne (with an intercity rail link to London Waterloo) are also easily accessible and have a wider selection of amenities and supermarkets.
