5 Bedroom Detached House for sale in Dorset

3 5 5

Welcome to Limekiln House, set in the most glorious of positions enjoying utter privacy and the most extraordinary far-reaching views across the valley from its elevated, yet sheltered, position. It is a rare find indeed where a location provides such a sense of peace and tranquility.

Originally part of the Weld Estate, the house has been extended over the years. Once a bungalow, it is now a substantial chalet with a first floor adding four bedrooms, each with its own en-suite facility. The flexibility of the property is assisted by a ground floor bedroom with a bathroom opposite. This could easily serve any number of uses, such as an additional family room.

On the GROUND FLOOR, doors open from the winding HALLWAY to a BOOT ROOM; a large, walk-in cupboard/store; a useful UTILITY ROOM with a sink and space and plumbing for a washing machine, tumble dryer and dishwasher; and, at the end, a CLOAKROOM with laundry cupboard. There is a also a SHOWER ROOM with WC and wash-hand basin opposite BEDROOM FIVE, which benefits from a built-in single wardrobe.

The SITTING ROOM is an L-shaped room flooded with light from triple-aspect windows. It features a cosy wood-burner, has a small recess with fitted shelving, and a door leading outside. The adjacent DINING ROOM has sliding doors to the garden, making it the ideal space for indoor/outdoor entertaining. The KITCHEN is generously fitted with a wide range of base and wall units, and has a central island and a tiled floor. A dishwasher is included as is the Rangemaster 110 with electric ovens and grill and an extractor hood above. A cupboard houses the oil-fired boiler for the central heating, and a door leads from the kitchen through to the utility room. The off-set BREAKFAST ROOM has sliding doors leading outside to the sheltered, sunny patio area.

From the hallway, stairs rise to the FIRST FLOOR LANDING, where there is an airing cupboard housing the hot water tank (with an immersion switch). The dual-aspect MAIN BEDROOM has a fully fitted DRESSING ROOM; an EN-SUITE BATHROOM with bath, separate shower cubicle, WC and wash-hand basin; plus a door to a potential balcony. BEDROOM TWO has an EN-SUITE BATHROOM featuring a bath with shower over, a WC and wash-hand basin. BEDROOM THREE has a fitted wardrobe, and an EN-SUITE SHOWER ROOM with WC and wash-hand basin. Finally, BEDROOM FOUR has a fitted cupboard, and an EN-SUITE SHOWER ROOM with a WC and wash-hand basin. All rooms enjoy views – some right across the valley.

The whole plot extends to approximately 0.875 of an acre and enjoys a magnificent location with views extending in all directions. Reached by a farm track from the road leading out of the village towards Winfrith Newburgh, the wonderful advantage is the absolute privacy it enjoys. It is indeed the perfect "escape to the country".

Whilst it is elevated, the topology of the plot provides sheltered enjoyment, and a predominantly westerly-facing patio provides a truly delightful spot from which to soak in the surrounding countryside. Mainly on two levels, there are extensive areas to enjoy throughout the gardens. A cedar constructed SUMMER HOUSE (with power) has been a wonderful additional "room" and even an overnight cabin during the warmer months.

The DOUBLE GARAGE has power and light, and there are two outside taps. There is also PARKING space for a considerable number of vehicles.

Enjoying a blissfully peaceful position up a farm road in an elevated-yet-sheltered location overlooking the valley. A wonderful advantage is the bridleway which leads through the valley down to the coast at Durdle Door - a magical half-hour walk. The village of East Chaldon itself is utterly picturesqe, with predominantly period properties overlooking the village green. A public house and church lie within the village and, at nearby Wool, there is a mainline railway station (to London Waterloo), a doctors' surgery, general store, butcher, baker and garage to name but a few. The village is also approx. equi-distant from the market town of Wareham and the county town of Dorchester, with its wide ranging facilities. The beautiful Jurassic Coastline is eminently enjoyed at Lulworth Cove, just a short distance away.
