THE PROPERTY

A fabulous detached Grade II listed property tucked away down a single country track, with a good holding of land and fabulous outbuildings. THE PROPERTY Tucked away down a bumpy country lane, first glimpses of Spring Garden are most impressive with its pretty thatched roof and cob walling. Justifiably Grade II listed of architectural and historical importance, this wonderful property, which was originally three cottages, has been much loved and looked after by the present owners during their twenty two year occupancy. On first entering the property there is a real sense of charm and character, with a lovely kitchen situated at one end of the property, incorporating very attractive wall and base units and an electric Rangemaster oven. The sitting room/snug is a fantastic room with wooden flooring and a wood burning stove, with a dining area with bifold doors opening out to a paved terrace, ideal for al fresco dining. The property offers incredibly flexible accommodation, none more so than the ground floor, with another good-sized sitting room with a large wood burning stove and large fireplace. There is also a door leading to a small study room and one further reception room which could easily be annexed from the main house, ideal for teenagers or elderly relatives. There are two separate bathrooms on the ground floor and three separate staircases and separate entrances. At the one end of the property is a lovely first floor bedroom, again accessed by a separate staircase. There are three further bedrooms, all with a huge amount of charm and views over the delightful gardens and countryside beyond. The property is very well presented, but totally untainted by inappropriate modernisation, and offers very flexible accommodation to suit most family's needs. The wonderful garden surrounds the house with many outbuildings, including field shelters, barns, machinery stores and even an outdoor bar and BBQ area, which would also make a fantastic home office. Part of the plot, which is just under an acre in all, is currently used as a pony paddock and is a utopia for both children and animals. All in all, this would make a wonderful property in an idyllic and very convenient location LOCATION Spring Garden is well situated for access to the stunning Jurassic coastline and the Purbecks, in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. This beautiful stretch of countryside is often referred to as Hardy's Country after its most famous local resident and is also famed for its miles and miles of fabulous footpaths and bridleways for endless walking, cycling and riding. The property surrounded by Winfrith Heath, a Site of Special Scientific Interest and Special Area of Conservation. The countryside can be accessed from the main house gates and is excellent for long walks across uninterrupted heathland, with an abundance of rare butterflies, insects, flora and fauna. The renowned Lulworth Cove, a natural horseshoe shaped harbour forming part of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site, is five miles away with its beaches, small eateries and beautiful walks. The heart of the very popular village of Winfrith Newburgh is less than a mile from the property, with its two public houses, The Red Lion and The Countryman Inn, even closer and approximately 15 minute walk. The village has a strong sense of community with an excellent village store & Post Office, thriving primary school and preschool and church. There are regular events held in the village hall. The village of Wool lies just over 3 miles to the east and benefits from a mainline rail link direct to London Waterloo (2 hours 45 mins) and a good level of amenities, including; a store/post office, doctors' surgery, pharmacy, dentist, two primary schools, pharmacy, church, and two public houses. Road connections are also good with easy access via the A352 east and west leading to more major road networks. The quayside market town of Wareham is just under 9 miles away and has an eclectic mix of restaurants and shops, as well as a yacht club. The county town of Dorchester just over 9 miles from the property has an excellent range of facilities with shops, schools, restaurants and the county hospital. Of particular note is the Conran-designed development at Brewery Square with its cinema, bars, restaurants and leading shops. There is a Waitrose, Tesco, and Lidl in Dorchester for everyday shopping and a mainline railway station with a fast regular service to London Waterloo. The property is within easy reach of major road networks, A31, M27 & M3.
