A stunning four bedroom family home tucked away on the fringe of a very pretty village with extraordinary views and delightful gardens, grounds and paddocks (in all approximately 11 acres). Tucked away on the edge of this charming village, first glimpses of Pea Mead are most striking, with its very pretty ham stone faade under a pitched tiled roof. Constructed in 2007 the property has been lovingly looked after and very cleverly updated and upgraded by the present owners, with extremely high standard fittings and recent professional decoration throughout. On first entering the property there is a real sense of comfort, charm and space with a magnificent light hallway and ham stone flooring, which continues throughout much of the downstairs. To one side of the hallway is a lovely sitting room with stripped wooden flooring, wood burning stove and double doors opening out to the paved terrace, which would be a perfect spot for 'al fresco' dining on a nice Dorset day. Like many rooms in the house, this room takes full advantage of the truly stunning views of the gardens, grounds and unspoilt countryside beyond. This must be one of Dorset's most magical spots! The bespoke family kitchen is quite simply 'as good as it gets' and is newly installed with high end fittings and finishes, including German appliances and a large wine fridge. There is plenty of room for a kitchen/dining table and at the far end is an open plan sun room and sitting area with double doors opening out to the paved terrace. There is also a large long window giving full access to the amazing views. Alongside the kitchen is a utility and boot area and door leading out to the garden. The principal bedrooms are situated on the first floor, with a superb master bedroom with en suite shower room, which unsurprisingly has incredible views! There is a separate shower room on this floor with a power shower and large double bedroom. The second floor by no means disappoints and would be ideal for children or guests with two magnificent bedrooms, a bathroom and a study area commanding the best views in the house. All bathrooms are newly installed with high end fittings and marble tiling, and the bedrooms all have generous built in wardrobes. The property originally had five bedrooms in total, and the largest could easily be reconfigured back to this if required. There is also full planning permission for a ground floor bedroom/bathroom with the foundations already having been completed. The professionally landscaped garden and grounds are a major feature of the property with approximately 8 acres of paddock and the remaining being very well nurtured and cared for gardens and woodland. There is a beautiful spring fed wildlife pond with large ham stone water feature and hand crafted oak pontoon for seating and raised boardwalk around - ideal for taking in the peaceful summers evening. The property is accessed by a very quiet village road and five bar electric gate and gravelled parking. Alongside this is a three bay oak building with two open plan car ports and one garage and storage area. There is a newly installed general purpose building/tractor shed with light and power and a high security roller door. The land is ideal for horses and ponies and other livestock with a small yard and stables incorporating three loose boxes, a tack room and a feed store. There is also a main paddock with a small general purpose field shelter and large hard standing area currently used as a lunge pen for horses as well as a small woodland. The stables, workshop and land have the benefit of separate access from the main property, including ample horse lorry/trailer parking away from the house. The land benefits from mains water supply to both a water trough and two taps. All in all, this is a truly magnificent property with a good holding of land in an idyllic and very convenient location.
