About the property
DETACHED FAMILY HOME SET ON A SUBSTANTIAL PLOT WITH IMPRESSIVE COUNTRYSIDE VIEWS
The property is situated in the Purbeck village of Harmans Cross, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, just a short drive from the thriving seaside resort of Swanage and the historical village of Corfe Castle. Harmans Cross has recently been connected via the classic steam railway to Wareham train station and onwards to London Waterloo.
From the entrance gate a sweeping, fir tree lined drive leads up to this unique Purbeck stone detached home with a turning circle with mature plants in a decorative bed.
The property is entered from the front via a storm porch through double solid wood doors and internal glazed door into the spacious entrance hallway.
The living room is the hub of this delightful property with impressive garden and countryside views through the 'floor to ceiling' bay window. A Purbeck stone fireplace with wood burner gives the room a pleasant, welcoming feel. An arch leads through into the dining room which benefits dual aspect windows with views over the rear and side of the garden. The kitchen can be accessed from both the dining room or hallway and is another good sized room with a matching range of cupboards at base and eye level with built in hob and eye level oven as well as a fitted dishwasher. An inner lobby leads out to both the garden room, with quarry-tiled floor and through to the utility room which in turn leads into the double garage.
The master bedroom is a spacious double with two built in wardrobes and dual aspect windows one of which offers captivating garden and countryside views. An en-suite has a matching 4 piece suite comprising a bath, wash hand basin with vanity unit, w/c and bidet. The second bedroom is another generous double with dual aspect overlooking the front with corner sink unit and built in wardrobe. Bedroom 3 is to the side of the property, is a good sized double room with double wardrobe and built in wash hand basin. The fourth bedroom is currently used as a study but would easily take a double bed and bedroom furniture. The family shower room benefits a single shower cubicle with electric shower, wash hand basin and w/c. There is also a cloakroom with small wash hand basin and low level flush.
When the property was originally built, the architect designed the home with a traditional Dorset roof, benefiting a first floor, with loft space above, also giving space in the entrance hall for a 'sweeping' staircase to be installed to access it. We are advised by the vendor that planning permission was previously granted (but now lapsed), to put 2 further bedrooms both with en-suite facilities on the first floor, together with a landing and an additional reception room with south-facing balcony. The current owners never felt the need to utilise this first floor space, keeping it as a storage area throughout their time in the property.
Set on approximately an acre of land, the property benefits from expansive gardens to both front and rear. The sweeping driveway is tree lined with a number of mature firs set over a well presented lawn area. The rear garden offers impressive views over the Purbeck countryside with the Swanage steam trains passing by in the valley below. A substantial lawn area is interspersed with fruit trees, mature shrubs and bushes. There is a spacious patio area abutting the rear of the property which is ideal for al fresco dining, bbq's or entertaining. There is a swimming pool, which once renovated, would provide the ideal setting to wile away those hot summer days.
