A beautifully maintained home perfect for extended family living in a prime location on the edge of the town Beechlands must be one of the best mature family homes in Blandford. Originally built in the 1960's, remodelled in the 90's and home to the current owner for nearly 20 years, it is an immaculately maintained and presented detached property comprising a very substantial main house approaching 3,000 sq/ft and a spacious separate cottage. The main house has generous and well organised accommodation which includes a particularly impressive drawing room, a dining room with sliding patio doors to the garden, a kitchen/breakfast room and separate utility room. Upstairs there are four double bedrooms with plenty of storage and three bath/shower rooms, and a fifth bedroom with ensuite on the 2nd floor is currently used as a family room and office. In addition to the main house there is a comfortable detached one bedroom cottage. All of this fabulous space makes Beechlands and Beechlands Cottage ideal for multigenerational living, for an extended family or for anyone who wants a substantial annexe for letting or operating a business. And all of that surrounded by a lovely garden in the most sought after part of Blandford Forum. Set suitably apart from the main house, Beechlands Cottage is an impressively spacious bungalow offering another 1,000 sq/ft of accommodation. It is currently arranged with another fine character reception room, a smart modern fitted kitchen/breakfast room, a conservatory and a large double bedroom and bathroom. The cottage has its own area of enclosed garden and could very easily be re-configured with two bedrooms if required. The house is set back from Milldown Road behind a large enclosed front garden with a sunken lawn surrounded by mature borders, a number of fine specimen trees and a small wood and glade off to one side. A five bar gate opens on to a paved drive leading up to the garage and carport, and behind the house there is another area of lawn with a paved terrace to one side, and a discreet area for storage. A picket fence separates off another well kept private garden for the cottage. Milldown Road is one of the most prestigious addresses in Blandford Forum, conveniently close to all the amenities in and only a brisk walk away from the lovely surrounding countryside that this part of Dorset is renowned for. Although Blandford is located in the heart of rural Dorset, communication links are excellent. It is only a short drive south to the Poole Bournemouth Christchurch conurbation which makes the town hugely convenient for people who work in that area. And travelling further afield is straight forward, the nearby A31 provide s a quick link to the M27 for Southampton and Portsmouth, and the M3 up to London. Bournemouth and Southampton airports and the ferry ports at Poole and Portsmouth are all easily accessible, and Poole station has a fast regular train service to London Waterloo. Mains electricity, gas and water are available at the property. Private drainage (septic tank).
