A MODERN ARCHITECT DESIGNED 4 BEDROOM PROPERTY NESTLED WITHIN A PRIVATE AND PEACEFUL POSITION ON THE EDGE OF THIS THRIVING DORSET VILLAGE, ALL IN APPROX 3 ACRES. Aspen Barn was architecturally designed and built in 2008, of rendered elevations and timber clad additions under a slate roof. Beautifully positioned in its plot affording a great deal of privacy, this unique house's interior and exterior have been extensively improved by the current owners and now exemplifies modern living with very well-proportioned light rooms that connect seamlessly together. The full height entrance hall echoes the form of a traditional barn which creates an immediate sense of charm and space which has been cleverly designed and tastefully finished with great attention to detail. Vaulted ceilings and impressive exposed Douglas fir beams are beautifully complemented by a subtle heritage colour palette throughout. A very welcoming central hall opens to one side to reveal the most wonderful kitchen/breakfast room, with ample room to dine, complete with local bespoke fitted shaker style units, matching shelving and Iroko worktops. This leads into the family/hobby room, which could also be used for formal dining, and is separated by fully glazed double doors. Benefitting from its own independent access to the front, this flexible space would also be ideal for those running a business from home. The utility/boot room with rear access via a stable door also leads from the kitchen, incorporating a ground floor WC, and door through to the study/bedroom 4, adding to its versatility. To the other side of the hall, fully glazed double doors open into the sitting room boasting an impressive fireplace with multi-fuel wood burning stove, exposed beams and French doors that lead out to the rear gravelled terrace. There is also a connection from this room into the study/bedroom 4. The first floor is equally as impressive, arriving at a vast galleried landing area with vaulted ceiling and flooded with natural light. The master bedroom, with vaulted ceiling and large roof light openings taking account of the views to the surrounding countryside, is a very light and luxurious space to relax, complete with an en suite bathroom incorporating separate shower. A guest bedroom with large en suite shower and dressing room, further double bedroom and family bathroom complete the first floor. Aspen Barn is situated on the edge of pretty village, set well back from the lane in a secluded and peaceful location with a five bar gate giving access to a long sweeping driveway flanked with a range of mature shrubs and specimen trees. There is a lawn to one side and a stream to the other making for a very attractive setting. The driveway arrives at a vast gravelled parking area and oak framed double garage to the side of the house. Set in approximately 3 acres, and somewhat nestled in its grounds, with a combination of informal yet well landscaped gardens, separate paddock, orchard planted with Apple, Apricot, Plum and Fig trees, raised vegetable gardens and potting shed. A semi circular gravelled terrace affording a great deal of privacy is positioned to the rear and looks up at a series of well designed terraced flower beds with steps leading to the top paddock, vegetable garden and Summer house. This has been carefully positioned to offer the perfect vantage point to the Dorset Gap, as well as panoramic views to the surrounding Dorset countryside - a great retreat away from the house offering complete peace and tranquillity.
