A delightful character house in a tranquil setting in the conservation area yet within easy reach of the town with gardens and paddocks of 3.3 acres.
Thornton's House is a classic example of a period Dorset farmhouse. The original elevations are stone and believed to have been built in the mid-1700s with further Victorian and post-war extensions. The house has evolved into a comfortable family home in a lovely location with a distinct rural feel yet just a short drive from the town and amenities. On the ground floor there are three reception rooms with the main drawing room having a lovely Inglenook fireplace and doors to the conservatory. The current owners have created a super kitchen/dining room which is an excellent family living space. Beyond the dining area is a sitting room / snug and off the kitchen is an excellent sized and extremely useful utility room with double sink, space and plumbing for appliances and large larder. Continuing from the utility room is a boot room with back door to outside. On the first floor there are four bedrooms and three bathrooms with a further bedroom and large boarded attic room on the second floor.
The house is approached over a large gravel drive which provides ample parking. Accessed from the drive is a timber framed double garage and a garden tool and wood shed as well as a workroom which is attached to the house. The gardens lie primarily to the front, side and rear of the house with the remainder of the land extending to the north west, including a fully stocked orchard of apples, pears, cherries and plums. From the garden a wooden personnel gate open into the first field which is fenced and beyond which is a further paddock with access to the lane. To the south of the property on the other side of the lane is an area of woodland measuring approximately 0.27 acres over which Thornton’s House has limited title.
