Property details

Inside

This stunning contemporary home was constructed in 2017 in local Shaftesbury Greenstone, tucked away at the end of a shared private road with gardens that wrap around and stunning views across the Blackmore Vale. Located in the Enmore Green area of Shaftesbury, a quiet, pretty area that has its own sense of community yet is walkable to the town centre.

Foxgloves is a warm and inviting home with plenty of flexible space for a growing family, yet cosy and welcoming for downsizers who want plenty of space for their family to visit. The owners have thought carefully about the property's eco credentials, and the property has a Mitsubishi™ Ecodan air source heat pump system, powered by solar panels and a 9.7kw battery storage system to power the electricity and underfloor heating that runs throughout the house to ensure toasty toes all year round. Foxgloves was a finalist in the Dorset LABC Building Excellence Awards 2018.

Approached from the generous and smart driveway, the main doors lead into stunning KITCHEN/DINING/FAMILY ROOM. This room truly is the heart of the home, a marvellous open, bright area with views to the front and out to the garden. The fully fitted kitchen is stacked with storage and has large pan drawers, pull out cupboards, large integrated fridge, freezer and an electric Rangemaster™ cooker with an induction hob and extraction over. This charming room is perfect for entertaining with a separate area for a large dining table, as well as space for a comfortable seating area. Large bi-fold doors open to the rear terrace for alfresco dining or an evening cocktail.

A UTILITY ROOM leads off the kitchen and has a range of cupboards with an integrated washing machine, water softener and one and half sinks. There is a side door out to the garden, and a door through to the DOUBLE GARAGE.

The SITTING ROOM is an absolute delight, flooded with light from the two large, floor to ceiling windows, one that provides stunning views to the front. A perfect place to enjoy Christmas with friends and family, this generous room has space for plenty of comfortable seating around the cosy Scandinavian RAIS contemporary wood burner.

Off the kitchen, an INNER HALLWAY provides built in coat cupboards and leads through to a spacious CLOAKROOM, a generous HOME OFFICE, and a second RECEPTION ROOM, ideal as a TV snug, playroom or additional bedroom. It has patio doors out to the terrace and a separate door out to the side of the house. This entire area could also make an ideal annex.

From the kitchen, oak stairs rise to the FIRST FLOOR and an impressive galleried SITTING LANDING. This is a beautiful bright space with far reaching views to the front and patio doors out to a balcony overlooking the garden. A lovely place to relax and read a book or just enjoy the views.

The landing area gives access to FOUR DOUBLE BEDROOMS: including the PRINCIPAL BEDROOM which is particularly spacious with breathtaking viewing across the Blackmore Vale. This principle suite offers a touch of luxury with a very generous ENSUITE featuring a large walk-in shower, a freestanding bath, double sinks with built in vanity and a WC. Directly next to the ensuite is a smart walk-in DRESSING ROOM, which has plenty of open hanging space, pull out drawers and display storage. BEDROOM 2 is a spacious double room that has an ensuite shower room and an area that could make an excellent dressing area, or nursery space. BEDROOMS 3 and 4 are both sizeable double rooms with built in storage and are serviced by a plush FAMILY BATHROOM featuring a freestanding bath, separate walk-in shower and WC.

All the windows are Smart Systems aluminium A+ rated metallic colour coded.
