About the property
SUPERB CHARACTER FAMILY COTTAGE SET WITHIN A PICTURESQUE VILLAGE
This spacious four bedroom family home sits amongst a mixture of pretty character homes and chocolate box cottages in the equally picturesque village of West Stafford.
Upon entering this spectacular thatched residence you are immediately greeted by a large dual aspect sitting room with a wonderful inglenook fireplace complete with a gas stove (pre-installed with a flue ready for wood burner/multi-fuel stove). The separate dining room is particularly light and airy since it is flooded with light from the purpose built sun room. As you move further through the property the modern shaker style kitchen is sure to impress with a wide range of units including long drawers and a small breakfast bar. Adjacent to this is a useful utility room and WC with access to the garden.
The first floor provides four bedrooms with en-suite shower room and built in wardrobes to the master, in addition to a separate family bathroom.
The property has been extended to create a large outbuilding which houses an indoor swimming pool (currently concealed by a temporary suspended floor) with separate changing room / shower room. This fantastic space is currently used as a music room and study however, could be utilised as an annexe for family members or guests if not returning it to it's originally intended use as a pool.
The property has oil fired heating and single glazed windows with secondary glazing.
Outside, the character continues with a beautiful walled garden with Wisteria growing up one part along with a lawn and flowering borders. Decked and paved areas serve as ideal spaces to entertain. In addition to all of this there is a large garage/workshop with adjoining double car port and parking for additional vehicles. There is also a separate orchard with fruit trees and a single stable.
West Stafford is a desirable village offering a popular public house "The Wise Man" and village church. Surrounded by Dorset Countryside, Hardy's Cottage and Thorncombe Woods are within easy reach. Dorchester town centre is approx. 3 miles away providing a good range of independent and national retailers, excellent schooling, Dorset County Hospital and train station providing main line rail link to London Waterloo.
