The 19 ft. triple aspect sitting room with its feature fireplace leads through a glazed corridor to an adaptable home office space and a double aspect store/workshop alongside with access to the attached garage. The kitchen/breakfast room also benefits from garden aspects, with a range of cabinetry and appliances arranged in a U-shape and a useful larder, store cupboard and cloakroom.

The first floor houses a family bathroom with separate cloakroom and three well proportioned and bright bedrooms with a range of fitted wardrobes and far-reaching views.

The property is situated within scenic Higher Totnell, surrounded by picturesque Dorset countryside and sitting less than a mile from the village of Leigh with its village hall, café and church.

Further is an orchard with ancient apple and plum trees in a meadow, a Site of Nature Conservation Interest (SNCI), rich in wild flowers and with meandering mowed pathways.
