CLICK ON OUR VIRTUAL TOUR. DOMVS, in assoc. with Fine & Country, is delighted to offer this centrally located home in the heart of Dorchester.
This property is all about easy living: a wonderfully convenient location, excellent entertaining space, a generous south-facing garden, and plentiful parking. It is no wonder the current owners have been there over 30 years.
During this time extensive changes have been made, and the house is well-equipped to enjoy the modern age with beautifully extended accommodation on the ground floor, modern bathrooms and detached garaging.
The GROUND FLOOR is a particularly welcoming space: a roomy hallway also provides a GUEST CLOAKROOM and there is a useful inner lobby with a coats cupboard and a small UTILITY room which has a Bosch washing machine included. The star of the show is the KITCHEN/BREAKFAST ROOM which will undoubtedly appeal to any chef! Considerately arranged to take into account the inevitable gatherings in the kitchen as well as streamlining the work spaces, it has a range of base and wall units with a central granite-topped island and appliances including a Quooker tap, waste disposal, water softener, integral tumble dryer and dishwasher, 5 burner gas hob with externally ducted extractor, two eye-level full ovens, and American-style fridge/freezer with ice and filtered water dispensers. From here, double doors lead into the Conservatory/Dining Room which is centrally heated and is the perfect space for entertaining. Doors lead straight out to the sunny rear garden: a room which works well at all times of the year.
The other side of the hallway is the sitting room and the study. The SITTING ROOM also enjoys views of the garden with French doors leading out to the terrace: a modern inset log fire with granite hearth adds a cosy focal point during the cooler months. The STUDY is clearly flexible in its usage, be it a children's' playroom or occasional 5th bedroom.
Stairs rise and turn from the hallway to the FIRST FLOOR. On the landing is the airing cupboard which houses the gas fired boiler, and pre-lagged hot water tank.
From the landing there is also loft access via a retractable ladder. There are FOUR BEDROOMS on this floor: the MASTER BEDROOM overlooks the rear garden and has a walk-in wardrobe with shelving and hanging space. There is also a smart ENSUITE SHOWER ROOM, with touch-sensitive mirror, a WC and wash-hand basin. In addition to the remaining 3 bedrooms, is the FAMILY BATHROOM which has a shower attachment/screen over the bath, together with a WC and wash-hand basin.
Unusually providing plentiful parking space for a centrally situated property together with a larger than usual single GARAGE which has remote-controlled up and over door, power and light. There is also an adjacent CAR PORT. A useful storage shed is located in the rear garden.
The rear garden faces south and is beautifully protected creating a wonderfully sheltered sun trap. A terrace area immediately abuts the property and overlooks the immaculately maintained lawn. There is even the additional fun of a swimming pool!
One of the joys of living in Prince of Wales Road is its location. Perfect for easy, level access to wide-ranging amenities including mainline rail link to London/Waterloo, county hospital, cinema, arts centre, museums, wine bars and schools. Sporting facilities include golf at Came Down and sailing at Weymouth and Portland. The famous Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site - a simply stunning coastline – is just a few miles away. Overall Dorchester is steeped in history, and enjoys some of the county's most noted period architecture all set amongst beautiful rural countryside with easy access to the coast at Weymouth.
