About This Property

A SPACIOUS home over TWO FLOORS with modern decor, PRIVATE GARDEN and ALLOCATED PARKING within the exclusive development of Stratton House.

This unique two double bedroom home is nestled within the heart of Dorchester just moments from the bustling high street yet set back behind Stratton House and therefore offering a peaceful and secluded setting.

The property is accessed via secure entrance doors from both the front and rear of the building. Upon entering it is apparent that this well-formed home has been designed to create a feeling of space, with large sash windows and high vaulted ceilings in the principal first floor rooms. Although this particular property is believed to be an extension of Stratton House and constructed in the 1920s, the interior was fully refurbished in approximately 2016 and now offers a modern interior design with the use of pale tones, spacious rooms and an open plan kitchen/dining room.

The large entrance hall leads to two spacious double bedrooms, the master having fitted triple wardrobes and an impressive fully tiled en-suite shower room with walk-in shower and fixed glass splash screen. Bedroom two is currently utilised as a study however, this large room will comfortably allow for a double bed and wardrobes. The ground floor also lies host to another shower room with wash hand basin and WC and a large airing cupboard off the hallway. Stairs rise to the first floor with a fitted Stannah stair lift (included with the property) which leads into the beautifully presented kitchen/diner. This spacious room features high vaulted ceilings with exposed beams, making for a light and airy place to cook and entertain. Features include a large sash window with half height plantation shutters, a large central island for food preparation and integrated oven, hob and dishwasher (utility space can be found in the separate utility room). The dining area is suitable for a 4 - 6 seat table and chairs. The separate sitting room is particularly sizeable and affords a triple aspect with sash windows including custom fitted plantation shutters, velux windows and french doors leading into the private garden.

Outside, the property boasts a fully enclosed private garden which has been laid with artificial grass for easy maintenance. There is also a dual weatherproof switched socket and a secure gate which leads to one allocated parking space behind.

Another salient feature of this particular property is the additonal utility/store room which offers ample storage space and includes a washing machine, tumble dryer and chest freezer. There is also power and lighting, making this space the ideal place for a workshop, gym or hobbies room.

Additional features include secondary glazing which we understand was fitted by Everest and custom fitted plantation shutters within the principal rooms.

Stratton House is a Grade II listed building which was believed to have been constructed in 1883 for the Earl of Shaftesbury. The building was designed by local architects G R Crickmay, a mentor of celebrated author Thomas Hardye. Most recently the property was owned by and used by the local authority – it was sold and redeveloped and now houses a range of stunning apartments and houses.
