This immaculate, handsome, detached, unlisted, period house offers attractive rendered elevations, sash windows and beautiful, traditional styling. Externally there are appealing views across the beautiful surrounding countryside. The property has been recently completely overhauled and now offers the very best of period and modern living, in 'turn-key' condition.

The ground floor provides comfortable, flexible reception rooms in which to relax or entertain. At the front there is a drawing room with its splendid fireplace, which has been fitted with a woodburning stove. There is also a sitting room with an open fireplace and double doors connecting to the 24ft garden room, which welcomes plenty of natural light and includes French doors opening onto the recently remodelled garden. Adjoining the garden room is the kitchen/breakfast room, which has been extended at the rear and includes skylights and French doors opening to the garden. The kitchen itself has shaker-style units, a central island, integrated appliances and an Aga.

Upstairs there are four immaculate double bedrooms including the principal bedroom with its large dressing room and en suite bathroom, all of which enjoy far reaching views. The fourth bedroom is also en suite with built-in storage, while the second and third bedrooms share a Jack and Jill bathroom.

The property is in a rural hamlet, close to the village of Okeford Fitzpaine, a highly soughtafter village located six miles northwest of the market town of Blandford Forum. Okeford Fitzpaine is surrounded by beautiful rolling countryside, and has a local pub, a post office, a convenience store, a parish church and a primary school. The neighbouring village of Shillingstone provides further amenities, while Blandford Forum offers a choice of shopping, supermarkets and leisure facilities.

There is an excellent selection of schools locally, with Milton Abbey, Hanford, Knighton House, Bryanston and Clayesmore independent schools and for state schools, The Blandford School.

The property is set in a delightful south and east facing garden, with views across the surrounding Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

At the front of the house, the garden driveway provides access and plenty of parking space for residents and visitors alike. The detached double garage provides further parking and includes a useful store or studio space to its first floor. The garden has an area of south-facing patio, extensive lawns and meadows, border flowerbeds and shrubs, raised beds and a variety of both young and mature trees and hedgerows.
