4 Bedroom Character Property - £725,000

The front door enters into the original Purbeck stone flagged entrance hallway containing a length of ample storage cupboards. A further hall area leads into the stunning and well-appointed oak-floored kitchen/dining room with bespoke kitchen units, granite worktops, integrated appliances, butler sink, range cooker and an island. This room is the heart of the home and double bi-fold doors open onto a very private flag-stoned internal courtyard. Leading on from this are the cosy TV room/snug with log burner and feature stone walls, a utility area with washing machine, butler sink and large drying cupboard, and the fully tiled wet-room.

The main staircase leads up to the impressive living/games room which has triple aspect windows, a gas coal-effect stove and feature Purbeck stone fireplace, plus room for a full- size American Pool table as well as a large corner sofa. Two large double bedrooms and a family bathroom (comprising a large freestanding bath, separate double width shower, pedestal basin and WC) all with period fireplaces, are also on the first floor on a separate corridor leading to the smaller second staircase from which the TV room/snug may be accessed (as an alternative route to going via the kitchen/dining room).

The main bedroom is on the second floor, offering ample space for a king-size bed and other furniture, with two walk-in wardrobes and an extremely spacious en-suite bathroom. This has a double whirlpool bath, separate shower, two console basins, bidet and WC. The second bedroom on this floor has original exposed beams and an en-suite bathroom with free standing bath, pedestal basin and WC.

The majority of the floors are Purbeck stone or wood; the front elevation is limewashed, in keeping with the Conservation area, with stone elevations at the rear and around the courtyard; and there are both traditional Purbeck stone and slate roof ranges. It has the benefit of gas-fired central heating and a mains pressure water system. This property was fully renovated and decorated to a high standard to successfully combine the mix of the Georgian and Victorian sections.

In addition to the main house, the property includes a commercial area (registered as 65a, with separate electric supply and including a WC) which has been let to small businesses, or could be used as an office space, or as part of an annex. Thus, the accommodation is very versatile. Hence this unusual property that has made a superb family home, would also be a great holiday home, or letting investment and viewing is highly recommended.

Oliver Miles handled the purchase of our new property. It was a long and challenging transaction. Oliver Miles demonstrated great professionalism in progressing the transaction and using local contacts to keep moving things along and keeping all parties informed.

We are very grateful for their help and support and wouldn't hesitate to recommend and would certainly use Oliver Miles in the future. Many thanks to Jackie, John and the team.

I have just sold a property with the help of Oliver Miles Estate Agent. I can't thank the staff enough for their help and support over the last few months.

They have first class knowledge of the local market; they are all very professional, and always friendly and helpful. Jackie in particular was an absolute lifeline to me at times: always supportive and very, very efficient.

I would certainly use their services again, and I would not hesitate to recommend them. They will help to make buying / selling your property so much easier (let's face it - moving is not the most stress-free thing to do!). Thank you all at Oliver Miles.
