Property details

Inside

Reputed to date back to the 18th Century and originally a pair of cottages, these farm dwellings have been lovingly and sympathetically combined by the owners in the 1980’s to form a delightful village residence with enchanting garden and boasting twin garaging a carport together with a garden room. Exposed beams, latch panelled doors, and the inglenooks exude character and the inherent sense of history.

The RECEPTION HALL is indeed a ‘receiving ‘hall with considerable room to greet guests, indeed it currently accommodates a baby grand piano! Natural light comes courtesy of windows to both front and rear and there is a built-in coats cupboard. Glazed doors lead to the DINING ROOM, with considerable space for an extended dining table overseen by the impressive inglenook fireplace with bressummer beam with wood burner. A delightful window seat overlooks station Road with still more light emanating from the twin southwest facing windows. The SITTING ROOM does not disappoint, with window seat once again overlooking the road and a further window: to the much-loved garden. This cosy reception room is centred around the fireplace. From the reception hall to the INNER HALL with door out to the gardens, further doors lead to the STUDY, natural light coming from twin windows. Alternatively, a door to the discreetly positioned SHOWER ROOM / CLOAKROOM.

The KITCHEN lies off the dining room, the sink is ideally positioned under one of the two southwest facing windows. There is an array of kitchen units, with space for an under-counter fridge and room for a small table for casual dining. Pride of place is given to the Rayburn™ with hot plate, main and lower ovens and providing central heating and hot water, inset with bressummer beam. A stable style door leads to the LAUNDRY ROOM, with sink unit, work surfaces additional cupboards and both plumbing and space for appliances. From here steps rise to the CONSERVATORY a superb vantage point from which to survey the enchanting garden and with door providing access.

Venturing up the straight staircase the LANDING is spacious with windows overlooking the garden. The PRINCIPAL BEDROOM is generous with views over the village scape together with a wonderful garden view. Fitted wardrobes provides for storage. An ENSUITE BATHROOM ‘Jack & Jill ‘style with return door to the landing lies to the front of the residence. BEDROOM TWO has a built-in wardrobe with windows to the lane and to the southwest. BEDROOMS THREE & FOUR also have a south-westerly aspect, with bedroom three having wardrobe space. Concluding the character accommodation is the BATHROOM.

Please note the sale of this property is subject to a Grant of Probate.

Outside

It is immediately apparent that the gardens have been very much loved. Beautifully and cleverly landscaped. There are areas of lawn, with well stocked borders adding much interest and wonderful colour. A trellis with Tea rose, Garden lupine, Baby sage, Armand clematis, Lemon balm, Crimson bottlebrush, are but a few, not to forget the apple tree! Whilst hedging of Boxleaf honeysuckle, European beech and Aureus provide boundaries. An expanse has been designated to a vegetable/fruit garden which has proven to be most productive.

Through double opening gates there is off road parking for several cars, leading to TWO SINGLE GARAGES both with automated up and over doors. To the rear of the detached garage is a WORKSHOP. Attached to the other garage is a CAR PORT with Oil storage tank. To the other side is the GARDEN ROOM / STUDIO again with power and light with generous sized windows together with twin Velux™ windows and further area of lawn to the fore. In addition, there is a GREENHOUSE.

Location

Chapel Lane nestles in the ever-popular village of Maiden Newton, which lies approximately eight miles north-west of the county town of Dorchester, and some 11 miles from Yeovil, in a verdant valley where the River Hooke joins the River Frome. The village with its welcoming community is particularly well served by a variety of small shops, post office, public house, and petrol station. The thriving, friendly village also has a doctors' surgery, veterinary practice, village hall, primary school and the railway station offering links to various destinations.

Fancy a walk? Try the Powerstock walk along the Bridport-Maiden Newton tramway trail - delightful!
