3 Bedroom Detached House for sale in Dorset

3 3 2

Welcome to a home that harmoniously blends the past with the conveniences of contemporary living. This attractive home has been lived in and loved for many years and is looking for a new custodian to bring some fresh life into it.

Stepping through the front door into the delightfully angled porch, ideal for discarding boots and hanging coats after a walk around the ancient Saxon walls. Then into the entrance/dining hall, with its polished mahogany staircase which sets the tone for the charm that permeates the entire property.

The open-plan kitchen and dining room offers direct access to the magnificent gardens. This space is perfect for hosting intimate dinners or large gatherings, with the verdant backdrop adding a touch of serenity to every occasion.

The sitting room, complete with an open fire, offers a cosy retreat with views across the garden. The drawing room, showcasing an original fireplace and breathtaking garden views, is the perfect spot for quiet contemplation or lively conversation with family and friends.

The sleeping quarters, located on the upper level, consist of three generous double bedrooms. Each room offers wonderful views of the gardens and Purbeck Hills, or the church tower, providing a peaceful start to each day. The main bathroom, enchantingly located on a mezzanine level, is a luxurious haven with a claw foot bath and separate walk-in shower - the perfect place to unwind after a day of kayaking on the river. A second bathroom with slipper bath serves bedrooms two and three, ensuring ample facilities for family and guests.

Through the dining hall and into a wonderfully self-contained annexe, perfect for generational living, passive income, or even for overflow guests. It is delightfully flexible and definitely useful.

The exterior of this property is as enchanting as its interior. Nestled on a 1.5-acre plot, the home is surrounded by stunning gardens that lead down to the river, offering a private mooring. A timber cabin, located midway down the garden, could serve as an ideal home office or studio. The summer house, previously a pool house, is perfect for family barbecues and gatherings. The garden is a haven with a surprise around every corner. A real delight and a bit of a gem in the heart of Wareham town.

A pole barn carport, complete with a workshop, provides ample space for vehicles and storage.

Adjacent to the annexe, there is a potting shed, simply made for growing your own tomatoes and other culinary delights.

Located on a private road, this property offers a rare tranquil and riverside setting while being within walking distance of the town centre. This unique combination of convenience and tranquillity makes it an ideal choice for those seeking a peaceful lifestyle without compromising on accessibility to amenities.

The Saxon walled market town of Wareham lies between two rivers; the Piddle and the Frome, and this charming home has the River Frome at the bottom of its garden.    A stroll takes you into the centre of town, which has a variety of shops and eateries, including an independent cinema! There are riverside walks and Arne Nature Reserve is a five-minute drive away. The stunning beaches and coastal walks at Studland, Swanage and Lulworth Cove are a short drive and Wareham has a mainline railway with a direct route to London Waterloo. There are two state primary schools and a good state secondary school, and several prep and private schools are within close proximity. Wareham has a yacht club and there are three good golf clubs close by.
