Tarrant Keyneston, Blandford Forum
Set in grounds and ADJOINING PADDOCK extending in total to JUST OVER 1 ACRE, this SUBSTANTIAL FAMILY HOME has undergone an EXTENSIVE REFURBISHMENT PROGRAMME including the addition of a DELIGHTFUL ORANGERY overlooking the garden and a TRIPLE CAR PORT AND WORKSHOP. SUPERBLY STYLED AND PRESENTED THROUGHOUT this STUNNING FAMILY HOME provides LIFESTYLE LIVING in an IDYLLIC VILLAGE LOCATION!
Mead House sits within a generous plot with an adjoining paddock with river frontage – in total just over one acre. Located in the pretty and desirable village of Tarrant Keyneston which lies in the Tarrant Valley between Blandford Forum to the west and Wimborne Minster to the East, the property has been in its current ownership for the past 10 years and within that time it has undergone a superb refurbishment and extension programme including the addition of a stunning orangery overlooking the rear garden and adjoining paddock.
In more recent years, a quality oak framed triple car port and entrance porch has been added to the property which now has an electric gated entrance with pavioured driveway and neatly landscaped grounds throughout. Further works include replacement of the roof just a few years ago and the property has double glazing throughout and oil fired central heating. Private drainage to a septic tank.
Internally the property is impeccably and stylishly presented with high quality finishes including stunning floor tiles laid throughout the open plan living space and a superb, high quality kitchen with a generous specification of integrated appliances – everything to meet the requirements for modern day living! Light fronted base and wall units are complemented by dark quartz worktops and a large island unit houses an induction hob with recessed extractor and this theme continues through to the adjoining utility room. An office/study enjoys privacy, tucked away off the utility room, whilst the triple aspect lounge provides generous space for relaxation off the good size, welcoming entrance hallway. A focal point is created by a contemporary living flame fire fuelled by Ethanol.
On the first floor there are four bedrooms – the master enjoying the benefit of a luxuriously appointed ensuite shower room with Jack and Jill wash hand basins, good size fully tiled shower cubicle and low level WC. Bedroom two has a similarly styled ensuite with walk-in shower, whilst bedrooms three and four are served by an equally luxurious family bathroom with freestanding, contemporary style bath.
Outside, the rear garden enjoys a good degree of privacy in this peaceful riverside setting. A mellow stone paved patio spans the rear of the property – ideal for alfresco dining – and a meandering paved pathway leads to a contemporary style summer house – currently utilised as a home gym. There is also a greenhouse and a substantial garden shed provides a useful storage facility. The large paddock adjoining the neatly landscaped garden, leads down to the River Tarrant where a strategically placed decked platform affords delightful views of open fields in the river valley – an ideal spot to soak up the tranquil surroundings!
