A fabulous detached period property close to the centre of the very popular village of Maiden Newton with wonderfully light and well-proportioned rooms and a delightful garden. Dating back to the 1840s but with many typically Georgian features and proportions, first glimpses of 2 Bull Lane are most impressive with its handsome faade and pretty pitched slate roof. On first entering the property there is a real sense of charm and space with light, airy rooms. The beautiful and perfectly proportioned sitting room is worth a special mention with original wooden shutters and very pretty central marble fireplace and woodburning stove. Adjacent to the sitting room there is a similar sized room which could be used for a number of purposes, including a TV/snug room or formal dining room, with a very pretty wooden central fireplace and butler's hatch opening out towards the kitchen. The real surprise is the truly exceptional open plan family kitchen and garden room which is quite simply as good as it gets! The kitchen incorporates a wide range of very pretty base and wall units and a large electric range oven. It also boasts views out over the delightful garden and there is plenty of room for a large dining table in the adjacent garden room making ideal space for entertaining, with double doors leading out onto the paved terrace ideal for al fresco dining. The principal bedrooms are situated on the first floor, with four in total, including a lovely master bedroom and en suite shower room. Also worth a very special mention is the absolutely delightful garden which can safely be described as a 'hidden gem' so close to the centre of the village, and certainly the envy of the village. There is one large paved terrace and one small terrace and a lawned area with very well stocked borders. There is also a delightful hidden rear garden and summer house, ideal for enjoying a peaceful drink in the evening sun. All in all, this is a wonderful family property in a very convenient and popular location. LOCATION Maiden Newton is a popular and vibrant village surrounded by unspoilt countryside and just over 12 miles from Chesil Beach on the Jurassic Coast. The village has a general stores/post office, newsagent, garage with shop, hardware store, fish & chip shop, primary school, St Mary's Parish Church, doctors' surgery, veterinary surgery and a railway station with trains to Dorchester, Weymouth, Bath and Bristol. Lying just over 8 miles south east is the county town of Dorchester and the village is also within easy access of the A37 to Yeovil. Both these towns have excellent shops, schools and mainline railway stations to London Waterloo. Dorchester town centre has an excellent range of facilities including shops, restaurants, public houses and supermarkets including a Waitrose, Tesco and Sainsbury's Local. Also worth a mention is the vibrant development at Brewery Square with its cinema, bars, restaurants and leading shops and Dorchester County Hospital.
