Property details

Inside

Welcome to Woodlanders House, part of a development of just three detached houses occupying a site overlooking the magnificent grounds of Kingston Maurward College, with its ancient oak trees and rolling valley. In a location that feels ‘country’ yet is but half an hour’s walk into the county town, and offering the opportunity to be involved in the final specification of these custom-build homes, it is the perfect choice for the discerning purchaser.

IN A NUTSHELL
Woodlanders House can be configured, from a wide range of options, to suit you. Choices include the number and size of bedrooms, the number of bathrooms, and how the ground floor is configured.

HOW IT WORKS
The purchaser buys the plot and, at the same time as purchasing the plot, enters into a build contract for the construction of the house to their specification.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF THIS ARRANGEMENT?
You have a say on the layout and specification of your home, and only pay Stamp Duty on the land cost as opposed to the cost of the finished house.
There is what they call a ‘Community Infrastructure Levy’ known as a ‘CIL’ payment.

WHAT IS A ‘CIL’ PAYMENT?
This is a charge that local authorities set on new developments to raise funds to help pay for facilities such as schools or transport improvements to support new homes and businesses. In this instance, this would be circa £20,000, but it is not payable for custom-build homes, providing the purchaser uses the house as their main residence, and provided they remain in occupation for a minimum of three years (this saving is being passed on by The Custom Build Company to the purchaser and is assumed in the quoted price).

CAN I GET A MORTGAGE?
Custom Build mortgages are readily available for up to 80 percent of the land and the build costs. The Custom Build Company can guide the purchaser on how to secure a mortgage.

CAN I CHANGE THE LAYOUT OF THE FIRST FLOOR IF I DON’T WANT FOUR BEDROOMS?
Yes, you can choose from a number of different layouts, which are all set out for you to choose.

CAN I DO THE SAME WITH THE GROUND FLOOR?
Yes, you can. If, for example, you want a different kitchen layout, you can choose from the various options. You can even decide not to have the extended ground floor (which gives you a bigger living space), resulting in a reduction on the quoted price. Speak to us directly for more detail.

HOW DO I RESERVE?
Reservations of £2,000 are being taken to reserve your plot. After that you will pay the plot price to the Custom Build Company (Developments) Ltd one month prior to the start of the build.

You will pay the Custom Build Company for the installation of the electricity, drainage and broadband when they are installed to the plot boundary.

The selected builder will then arrange for the construction drawings to be prepared (the contract for the building of the house will be with the builder, and the build will be paid for in six instalments).

The build is estimated to take no more than 32 weeks from completion of the construction drawings.

Location

The site was originally part of the grounds surrounding Kingston Maurward College, an 18th century manor house nestled in the Dorset countryside. It also sits alongside Stinsford, a small, delightful, no-through village with an ancient church at its centre, the churchyard of which holds the heart of Thomas Hardy (his ashes having been interred in Westminster Abbey). This is a magical spot, with riverside walks along the River Frome towards Lower Bockhampton, where the well-regarded Yalbury Cottage hotel and restaurant can be found. Continuing down Bockhampton Lane, you can cycle to West Stafford, which is home to one of Dorset’s best pubs, The Wise Man.

The county town of Dorchester is just over a mile away, and can be reached via a walk across meadows. Facilities in Dorchester include a mainline (London Waterloo) railway station; extensive choice of restaurants and shops; and a wide range of schools (private and state). Inland and coastal recreational activities can also be enjoyed nearby, with golf at Came Down just three miles away, and the Weymouth & Portland National Sailing Academy just nine miles. Transport is easy with the A35 conveniently accessible.
