Property details

Inside

The Old Rectory was the former rectory of Holy Trinity Church designed by John Hicks in 1850. It is a handsome building in Gothic-style with some mock Tudor timbering. Of note is that Dorset poet, Thomas Hardy, worked as Hicks' assistant for seven years until the architect died in 1869. In more recent years, The Old Rectory was utilised as a school of nursing and as one of Dorchester’s premier health clubs.

One of eight apartments, the PENTHOUSE is fabulously light. Its airy interior has four roof lights of which one fully retracts at the touch of a button, providing outstanding levels of light.

The penthouse is approached via its own private front door, which opens to a staircase rising to the top floor and ENTRANCE HALL, from which all principal rooms radiate. The most sociable of areas is the combined SITTING ROOM/DINING ROOM and well fitted KITCHEN.

In the kitchen is an array of storage with both wall-mounted and base cupboards and drawers, the latter with Pietra™ quartz worksurfaces over. Above the pleasing island unit is the electric sliding roof light, flooding the space with natural light. Quality appliances include an AEG™ four-ring induction hob; oven; additional compact oven with microwave function; dishwasher, washing machine and fridge/freezer. The DINING AREA readily accommodates a sizable table and chairs for formal dining. The SITTING ROOM is light and airy and a most convivial reception area. Adjacent to the well-equipped kitchen is a separate, spacious UTILITY ROOM, which further adds to the unique blend of contemporary style with practical considerations, providing further storage, work surfaces and with fitted water softener and AEG ™ washing machine and drier.

The PRINCIPAL BEDROOM SUITE is approached via its own RECEPTION AREA, ideal as a private seating space, dressing room or study area. The comfortable bedroom area has wardrobe space, and there is an ENSUITE SHOWER ROOM with shower cubicle, WC and hand-wash basin.

BEDROOM TWO is another characterful double, full of light and with fitted wardrobes and an ENSUITE BATHROOM with bath, seperate shower cubicle, WC and hand-wash basin. BEDROOM THREE is another spacious double with wardrobe space, and adjacent off the hall is a SHOWER ROOM with shower cubicle, WC and hand-wash basin. All three bathrooms enjoy quality sanitary ware; complimentary ceramic tiling to walls and floors; polished chrome taps and fittings; thermostatic showers in the shower cubicles and chrome ladder-style towel rails.

The luxurious accommodation seemlessly combines a contemporary style with echoes of its history. Full of character, it is spacious and, on a practical note, storage is plentiful. Quietly located right in the heart of the town centre in an area of private roads, this is a truly unique home.
