A HUGELY IMPRESSIVE NEO-GEORGIAN FAMILY HOUSE WITH EXCEPTIONAL ACCOMMODATION AND AN ANNEXE SET IN A LARGE MATURE GARDEN. In a secluded setting at the end of a private road with views over the Crown Meadows, Lanrick House was designed by the present owner in the neo-Georgian style to reflect its historic surroundings. The house was built in 2006 and has well proportioned and well organised accommodation which extends to about 4,500 sq/ft and incorporates some fine quality features including oak and stone floors and a hand built kitchen. At the centre of the house is a large reception hall with an impressive staircase and galleried landing. To one side of the hall there is a comfortable drawing room with an open fireplace and a small study, and on the other side a fabulous 36ft family kitchen/dining room with a central island and French doors to the garden. Beyond the hall there is a 2nd sitting room/office, large utility room, separate boot room and a cloakroom. Upstairs there are six double bedrooms and four bath/shower rooms over two floors, the principal bedroom is particularly impressive with extensive storage and a large ensuite bathroom. The house was designed and built with terrific attention to detail and ornate cornicing, stone and oak floors are complimented by fine hardwood period style sash windows, and being a relatively modern house, construction technics are right up-to-date so the windows are double glazed, there is a high level of insulation and a zoned heating system (underfloor through the kitchen/family room) which all go to make Lanrick House an easy and relatively efficient house to manage and maintain. This comfortable high spec. house is further enhanced by a useful detached annexe which provides another living room, kitchenette, bathroom and a 7th bedroom. A perfect space to work from home, run Airbnb/holiday lets or hide noisy teenagers. Set in mature private gardens of approximately ½ an acre the house is approached over a private road at the end of which a private drive sweeps up to the front of the house and round to a gravel turning and parking area in front of the detached double garage and annexe. Beyond the drive the garden is largely laid to lawn with mature trees and borders that provide an attractive setting for the house. To the front, with access from the family room, there is a large, paved terrace with a view across the lawn and over the Crown Meadows to Bryanston Woods on the other side of the river. The back garden is largely laid to lawn and surrounded by high fencing and hedges for privacy, and in one corner there is a substantial timber garden room with a veranda and its own woodburning stove. Lanrick House is situated almost at the end of Deer Park Lane a private road in a sought-after location on the edge of Blandford Forum with open views across the Crown Meadows and Bryanston Woods in one direction and all the services and amenities of the town in the other. A popular market town, Blandford is famed for its classic architecture, busy market square and one of the finest Georgian churches outside London. There are services and amenities for every ones day to day needs including an M&S Food Hall, Tesco and Lidl superstores, and from the end of Deer Park Lane it is only a short walk to The Milldown (recreation area) and beyond that into the lovely countryside that surrounds the town, much of which is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). There are lots of good opportunities for sport and recreation in the area, Kingston Lacy and Badbury Rings (National Trust), the New Forest and Cranborne Chase are all nearby, as well as lovely beaches and water sports around Poole Harbour, Studland Bay and along Dorset's renowned Jurassic coastline, which are less than 45 mins away by car. Communication links are also good, within half an hour you can be in the county town of Dorchester, historic Shaftesbury or the pretty Abbey town of Sherborne, and the commute to Poole, Ferndown and Bournemouth is straight forward. Easy access onto the A31 provides a quick link to the M27 for Southampton and Portsmouth and on to the M3 up to London. The A303/M3 via Salisbury provides another route to London, and Salisbury has the most convenient station (London Waterloo about 2 hrs). This part of Dorset has also become well known for its wide choice of schools at all levels and as well as the primary and state secondary schools in Blandford, independent schools nearby include Bryanston (on the doorstep), Canford, Clayesmore and Milton Abbey, as well as Hanford, Sandroyd and Castle Court prep schools.
