About This Property

A CHARMING CHAPEL CONVERSION SET WITHIN APPROXIMATELY 0.5 ACRES within a peaceful rural setting. Offered with no forward chain.

This beautiful and charming 2/3 bedroom detached home is positioned within the picturesque Hamlet of Muckleford, just a short drive from the County Town of Dorchester. The property which is constructed of brick and flint elevations during the 1880s was originally the local Chapel and also used as an Officer's Billet during the war.

The property is approached via two pedestrian gates to the front aspect and a five bar wooden gate, giving access to the gravel driveway. A notable feature of this characterful home is the large gable end porch with brick arch, providing the ideal space for muddy boots and wet coats! The spacious dining hall features timber floors and offers a versatile space for either a dining suite or perhaps a work from home office area. This in turn leads to a dual aspect sitting room featuring a log burning stove and glazed french doors which open out onto a patio area in the garden. Another salient feature of this wonderful home is the extended kitchen/breakfast room which boasts a part-vaulted ceiling and an impressive arched window which draws in an abundance of light, making this room feel spacious and airy. The kitchen features pine units under laminate work surfaces and clay tiled floors. Hot water and heating is provided by an oil fired Rayburn stove situated in the kitchen. In addition to the kitchen, the ground floor accommodation also includes a separate utility room, cloakroom/WC and a useful conservatory featuring glass roof, flagstone floors and a beautiful grapevine.

The first floor boasts a T-shaped staircase leading to the master bedroom which benefits from a dual aspect, stripped wood flooring, feature fireplace surround, a built-in cupboard and en-suite shower room. There are two further double bedrooms (please note that bedroom three can only be accessed via bedroom two) and a separate family bathroom with Velux window and stripped wood flooring.

Outside, the property is surrounded by an abundance of colourful plants, flowers and shrubs with beautiful countryside views in the distance. The main of the grounds are laid to lawn with notable features including a large pond, a gardeners shed, a log store and various well stocked flower beds. The garden also boasts its very own orchard with fruit trees and soft fruits. In short, this is truly a gardener’s paradise and can only truly be appreciated in person!

There is also a large gravelled parking area to the side elevation of the property with the added benefit of a detached single garage.

Muckleford is a hamlet at the western edge of the parish of Bradford Peverell and is only 4 miles from the country town of Dorchester which offers an excellent range of facilities including a mainline railway station to London (Waterloo), the journey taking approximately 2 hours 30 minutes. The seaside resort of Weymouth (9 miles) has an excellent marina and is nationally renowned for its sailing facilities, together with its lovely sandy beach and safe swimming. The coastline has now been afforded World Heritage Status. Hunting is with the Cattistock and South Dorset Hunts, racing at Wincanton, polo at Taunton and there is a fine golf course at Came Down (5 miles). Independent schools include Sunninghill Preparatory School in Dorchester, Sherborne School for Boys, Sherborne School for Girls, Sherborne Preparatory School, Leweston, Milton Abbey and Bryanston.
