About This Property

ELEVATED POSITION ATOP BINCOMBE DOWN WITH TRULY EXCEPTIONAL VIEWS! Extensively refurbished and extended family home with potential for additional outbuildings and detached double garage.

It is often said that a property is ‘one of a kind’ or ‘must not be missed’, and this home is no exception. Throughout this well designed family home you will find spacious rooms, flooded with light and providing dual aspects to allow its occupants to fully enjoy the truly breath-taking elevated views across Bincombe Down and beyond – there is even a sea glimpse! If you are seeking something truly individual in an undisturbed yet convenient location, then this home is certainly worth your consideration. From the outset, it is apparent that space is not an issue with ample off road parking to the front aspect on the gravel driveway. The original part of the house is believed to date back to the early 1700s and mixes seamlessly with the latter and extensive additions over more recent years. Inside, you will find a classic contemporary style including timber doors and engineered oak and bamboo flooring to name but a few features. The ground floor accommodation in brief comprises an entrance porch and cloakroom/WC with white gloss metro tiles and luxury vinyl flooring for easy maintenance. The hallway features engineered oak flooring and a beautiful staircase with traditional iron two basket and two twist adorned spindles, making this a particularly striking feature. The original sitting room boasts engineered oak flooring and a character fireplace featuring tile inserts, reclaimed surround and a wood burning stove. One of the most salient features of this home is the large kitchen, which was refitted about four years ago and includes timber work surfaces, beautiful bamboo flooring, a five ring Rangemaster Cooker (calor gas fuelled), and an island with inset marble and timber work surface. There is sufficient space for a freestanding fridge/freezer, a washer/dryer and a dishwasher. Next to the kitchen is the plant room which houses the oil fired boiler and under floor heating system which heats the entire ground floor (not in cloakroom/WC). Adjacent to the kitchen, the dual aspect dining room has bamboo flooring and glazed aluminium French doors providing views across the garden and Bincombe Down. Three steps up lead to the vast sitting room which includes a contemporary AGA ‘Hadley’ wood burner with flagstone hearth extension and further engineered oak flooring. A wide glazed aluminium door with floor to ceiling windows makes moving larger items of furniture into the house a doddle! The impressive features continue on the first floor, where a sizable landing brings light and bounces it into neighbouring rooms and down into the entrance hall, this wonderful space contains original floor boards with brass screws. This floor level lies host to four double bedrooms with a ‘Jack and Jill’ shower room between bedroom one and two, featuring a walk-in shower with white glazed metro-tiles. The master bedroom benefits from a walk-in wardrobe, built-in airing cupboard and a shallow balcony with show stopping views across miles of rolling countryside – this is something that can only truly be appreciated in person! The main bathroom, much like many features was re-fitted in 2017 and is a particularly large space. It features a freestanding roll top bath and separate walk-in shower with a ‘dual fuel’ towel rail, meaning it can still be used in warmer months when the heating isn’t on! The second floor contains two further bedrooms both with eaves storage and once again impressive views in both directions. On a clear day, the top of the isle of Portland and sea glimpses can be viewed from this floor.

The property is located within the Dorset AONB and is just moments from Came Down Golf Club which played an important part in the founding of the Ryder Cup. The property sits on the South Dorset Ridgeway in a prime location for convenient access to an extensive network of footpaths and bridleways including the Jubilee Trail and Hardy Way making this the ideal position for anyone who enjoys the great outdoors!

Set in over a third of an acre at the top of The Ridgeway (AONB), this prominent home looks across rolling fields towards Dorchester and Poundbury from the rear aspect. The front garden is mostly lawn with mature hedges on the boundary beside the neighbouring property. There is potential for multiple outbuildings (STPP) if desired on the western flank of the garden where a large barn once stood. Our client has informed us that planning permission exists for substantial double garage, Application WD/D/20/001011 Please visit for further information. A large concrete hardstanding can also be found on the western flank adjacent to a stone wall, which leads into a timber fence that divides two separate lawn areas overlooking agricultural land with views of Dorchester on the horizon.
