This SIMPLY OUTSTANDING "ONE-OFF" COUNTRY RESIDENCE is set within GROUNDS IN EXCESS OF THREE ACRES on the fringes of the PRETTY VILLAGE of Witchampton in the HEART OF THE DORSET COUNTRYSIDE. Offering SIX BEDROOMS, THREE RECEPTIONS, FOUR BATHROOMS, TRIPLE GARAGE and STABLE BLOCK - TRULY A DREAM HOME!
This stunning "one off" detached family home occupies an elevated position on the fringes of the pretty village of Witchampton. The beautiful approach offers a first glimpse of the generous grounds which encompass in excess of three acres and the creative design of this imposing home has been thoughtfully engineered to somewhat mirror the original house that previously stood here for over 100 years.
The accommodation itself is arranged over three floors offering spacious, well proportioned and versatile accommodation throughout. The entrance hall ceilings and landings really create the wow factor with a fantastic feeling of space and light, whilst a notable feature of the property is the open plan kitchen/living room/orangery – the heart of the home – aesthetically pleasing and an exceptional, high quality finish. Stylishly fitted with a quality range of base and wall units as well as a large island unit, the specification includes granite worktops, butler's sink and an inset sink within the island unit. Appliances include an Aga, an eye level double oven, integrated dishwasher, fridge/freezer and a wine cooler. A discreetly fitted, recessed calor gas fire provides a cosy spot adjacent to the orangery, with ample space for casual seating and a large dining table and chairs, overlooking the southerly aspect rear garden. A rear vestibule/boot room has a stable door leading to outside as well as access to the plant room with excellent drying facility and a separate utility room with a range of fitted storage units and space for washing machine, tumble dryer and fridge/freezer.
The grand reception hallway is flooded with natural light through the large atrium rooflight whilst a sweeping staircase subdivides to the Minstrel gallery which has a delightful triple aspect to the front of the property and provides ample space as a study area with casual seating.
Mellow limestone flooring is laid throughout much of the ground floor along with Amtico engineered wood flooring in the lounge, dining room and snug. Large sash windows ensure lots of natural light, with many of the rooms being dual aspect and French doors lead from both the lounge and dining room to a delightful paved terrace overlooking the formal rear garden. The lounge has an imposing, sandstone fireplace with fitted woodburner, and the rather more intimate snug/study also has a fitted woodburner and a range of bespoke, handmade oak office furniture. The dining room is fitted with plantation shutters and overlooks the rear garden.
Further enhancements made to the property have been undertaken with great care and consideration to detail. The master suite is a real feature and something very special and the ensuite bathroom and dressing room are quite outstanding! Each of the bathrooms and ensuites are exquisitely styled with their own unique themes and fitted with exceptionally high quality sanitaryware including free standing contemporary, vintage style and "P" shaped baths, "Jack and Jill" wash hand basins and walk-in showers with rainwater shower heads.
There are six bedrooms arranged over first and second floors – of particular note, the master suite on the first floor has an adjoining dressing room fitted with high quality, bespoke storage units and a luxuriously appointed ensuite bathroom and there is a further similarly styled suite on the second floor, complete with its own atrium creating a light and airy room. The total of three bedrooms on the second floor also have the advantage of a delightful social space overlooking the galleried entrance hall and with a window to the front aspect. All bedrooms have been tastefully presented and each has the benefit of beautifully styled, bespoke bedroom furniture.
This property certainly offers something for everybody and another versatile space is the large room over the triple garage which provides fantastic space for either a hobby room or business. Immaculately presented with quality finishes throughout, the property offers a unique lifestyle with zoned underfloor heating on the ground floor provided by an air source heat pump, whilst the rest of the house is fuelled by oil fired central heating and solar panels provide the hot water and heated towel rails – and if there is a power outage – there is a back up generator! LED lights are fitted throughout and the property has a private well with pump and its own sewage treatment plant.
The property benefits from internet wiring to both the study and the lounge and wi-fi connection, an intruder alarm system, a gate alarm which alerts the house to incoming visitors, CCTV and air conditioning to some rooms.
The surrounding, far reaching views are breathtaking and the landscaping and design of the garden complements this superbly.
