DOMVS is delighted to present this quintessential cottage. Vendor says, “It’s a lovely spot, there is something so charming about the Piddle Valley. To find something new, as it was when I bought it, in this location, was just perfect.” Location The village of Alton Pancras lies approximately nine miles north of Dorchester on the edge of the Dorset downs, within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It offers access to both the county town of Dorchester and the beautiful historic abbey town of Sherborne. Neighbouring villages Buckland Newton and Piddletrenthide offer an excellent level of amenities, including village shops, villages halls and public houses. The award winning Piddle Valley C of E first school is easily accessible from the property. Features Village location Versatile accommodation Characterful, modern property Four bedrooms Garage and parking 4 Inside This immaculately presented detached house offers an abundance of entertaining spaces; a superb family home, located in the most picturesque of areas. Light and contemporary, yet in keeping with the character of the surrounding villages. The ACCOMMODATION is approached via a covered porch, which has a useful nook that can be used as a woodstore. The stable door opens into the ENTRANCE HALLWAY, a space that accesses a CLOAKROOM, complete with WC and hand-wash basin. A timber door leads to the KITCHEN/BREAKFAST ROOM. The natural wood cabinets surround a navy blue AGA, fitting the farmhouse feel of the room along with the Belfast sink, and solid and natural timber cupboards. The adjacent DINING SPACE is beautifully light with French doors that open into the walled garden. The kitchen also accesses the integral garage, with the UTILITY AREA immediately adjacent to the kitchen, complete with a further Belfast sink and space and plumbing for two white goods. Due to the size of the garage, both the utility area and a staircase acting as secondary access to the master bedroom, do not compromise parking within it. The SITTING ROOM immediately impresses, with generous bookcases astride a brick and Hamstone fireplace, with an open fire set within. Solid timber floor flows seamlessly between this area and the SUN ROOM, with French doors dividing the two. Further French doors open from here into the garden. Stairs rise to the FIRST FLOOR landing, where there is an airing cupboard, and access to the bedrooms and bathrooms. The MASTER BEDROOM has windows on both sides, with rural vistas to both aspects. The room accesses an ENSUITE which can be used as a Jack and Jill facility with bedroom two if so desired. The room is complete with shower, wash-hand basin and WC. From the master bedroom, the aforementioned secondary staircase leads down to the garage, making this an ideal room to use as a small annex. BEDROOM TWO is a double room, that benefits from built-in cupboards. The room is currently used as an additional reception room. BEDROOM THREE is a double room at the front of the property, with distant rural vistas. BEDROOM FOUR is a single room to the rear of the property, and makes an ideal study overlooking the garden. The FAMILY BATHROOM has a bath, wash-hand basin and WC. Outside A small, lawned area is visible from the front of the property, with a path running alongside it to the front entrance. As with many rural properties, the most used entrance is that to the rear of the property. The parking space is accessed via an archway into the courtyard that hosts the parking spaces for all residents of the development. A timber gate leading to the rear of the property is accessed from here, into the garden. This maturely planted area is a stunning vista from the property with pleasant seating areas set within. The GARAGE is accessed from the parking area. Directions Use what3words.com to accurately navigate to the exact spot. Search using these three words: holiday.aquatic.pizzeria
