About This Property

ATTRACTIVE DETACHED FAMILY RESIDENCE SET WITHIN APPROXIMATELY 0.81 ACRES OF BEAUTIFUL ESTABLISHED GROUNDS and benefitting from a self-contained 1 bedroom annexe. Private, south facing setting, with lovely country views. Offered with no chain.

In a beautiful setting within the village of Stratton, this impressive family residence occupies approximately 0.81 Acres of well-established grounds and offers its next custodians the opportunity for updating/ extension. The property is approached via a timber gate and gravel driveway, providing ample off road parking and a double garage with adjacent workshop.  Constructed of brick and tile hung elevations under a clay tile roof, this most attractive home has been lovingly cared for by its existing owners over the past 50 years.    

Internally, the accommodation is well designed, with the entrance hall opening onto a large triple aspect sitting room with views across the gardens to the water meadows beyond.   Double-glazed french doors lead onto a large outside terrace area with raised pond.  The separate dining room enjoys a southern aspect onto the terrace and lawns.  Adjacent to the dining room (and connected by a serving hatch), the kitchen/breakfast room includes a family seating area and separate walk-in pantry with space for fridge/freezer and ample food storage.  The kitchen boasts a gas fired AGA, and work surfaces on three sides, with kitchen units under (including space for a dishwasher).  The kitchen opens onto a large conservatory/sun room under the canopy of a mature grape vine. This provides the ideal space to relax and enjoy family dining and entertaining overlooking the beautiful gardens and unspoiled view across open meadows to the south.  The double garage can be accessed via the conservatory, with up and over doors onto the front drive, and a further door to the rear. Beyond lie a separate workshop, garden storage and greenhouse.  

At the western end of the house lies a self-contained annexe or “granny flat” featuring its own hall and front and rear access, a cloakroom/shower room housing the gas-fired Worcester boiler, utility room which could become a kitchenette if desired and large dual aspect bedroom/sitting room with direct access to the garden.

The first floor features a bright and airy landing which leads to four spacious bedrooms, with a large shower room at one end and family bathroom at the other. The master bedroom includes fitted wardrobes & drawers, as well as a vanity unit with washbasin and affords stunning garden views.

Outside, the award winning garden has been lovingly created by the current owners around a sweeping lawn lined with herbaceous borders and specimen trees and shrubs. Beyond lie extensive fruit and vegetable plots, fruit tunnel and topiary. The lawn is bordered by an orchard and, along the southern boundary, runs a winterbourne stream. Beyond the garden lie water meadows and rolling hills offering a serene outlook for as far as the eye can see.

The popular village of Stratton is situated approximately 3 miles north-west of Dorchester, off the A37 which runs further west towards Yeovil, and benefits from a large village green, a village hall and a popular public house, The Saxon Arms, listed in the Good Pub Guide. There are also a number of thriving clubs and societies, and an active church, creating a strong sense of community. The village sits surrounded by the beautiful rolling hills of West Dorset, with miles of country walks on the doorstep.
