A deceptively spacious yet thoughtfully extended character home that originally dates in part to the late 1700's, set within the heart of this pretty village. Accommodation on the ground floor briefly comprises a 21ft sitting room with Inglenook fireplace and wood burning stove, study, conservatory, large kitchen/dining room and utility/cloakroom. On the first floor there is then a master bedroom with dressing area, double bedroom and modern bathroom, with a further bedroom on the second floor. Additional benefits include a driveway providing ample off-road parking, garage and attractive front and rear gardens. The property comes with a wealth of both charm and character and to fully appreciate both its location and the accommodation on offer, an early viewing truly is a must.
Location Woolland is in an area of outstanding natural beauty, in the very heart of the North Dorset countryside with its gentle rolling downland, woodlands and nature reserves. Within the area there are many bridle paths for walking enthusiasts, picturesque villages, rivers and streams along with an abundance of wildlife and beautiful views. The village church was built in 1857 with the yew tree next to Woolland church mentioned in the Domesday Book. Only a short drive away is the Georgian town of Blandford Forum, the market town of Sturminster Newton and thriving Dorchester is also close by that offers a broad range of shops and general amenities. Both the historical towns of Shaftesbury and Sherbourne are also within easy reach.
Inside The house is approached via a pathway leading to a double glazed front door which then leads directly through to the entrance porch which has a double glazed window to the side and hanging space for cloaks. A further door then leads directly through to a beautiful 21ft sitting room which has double glazed windows to both front and side, exposed beams, a turned staircase to one side of the room leading to the first floor and an under stairs cupboard, with the main focal point of the room then being the attractive open exposed brick Inglenook fireplace with inset wood burning stove and oak mantel. A door at one end of the room then leads through to the study, which was formerly used as a dining room, and is a well-proportioned room. French doors from the study lead through to the conservatory which is a half brick based UPVC double glazed room with vaulted ceiling and French doors to the side that lead out onto the patio area. The heart of the house then has to be the lovely 21ft kitchen/dining room which has a double glazed window overlooking the garden and French doors that lead through to an attractive rear porch. The kitchen itself has been recently fitted with a matching range of wall and base units with cupboards and drawers under, granite worktops, a one and a half bowl sink unit along with a range of appliances including a built-in electric oven and hob with extractor over, dishwasher and further appliance space. A doorway to one side of the room then leads through to a utility/ cloakroom which has a fitted worktop with plumbing space for a washing machine under, a single bowl sink unit to the side and a low level WC. From the kitchen there are doors that then lead through to a beautiful oak framed rear porch which has doors leading through to the rear garden.
On the first floor landing there is a staircase leading to the second floor and a door leading through to the master bedroom with an adjoining dressing room. This room has windows to both front and side, exposed beams and a range of fitted wardrobes along one wall with a dressing table opposite.
