CLICK ON THE VIRTUAL TOUR. DOMVS, in assoc with Fine and Country, is delighted to offer this extremely generous home in outstanding landscaped garden. Vendors say: ' our favourite time of day is when we sit out on the terrace in the evening enjoying the sunshine. We are thrilled with our beautifully landscaped garden and just enjoy the sense of tranquillity and peacefulness overlooking the countryside'.
Enjoying an elevated position overlooking open fields, the house is situated within this no-through lane in this understandably popular village. Dewlish has a strong sense of community and its active village life is supported by a village hall, public house and church, with many well-regarded schools close at hand.
Local amenities include a doctor’s surgery, first school and shop/post office in Puddletown (approx. 3.5 miles), and renowned public school – with facilities open to the public – and village shop in Milton Abbas (approx. 2 miles). Dewlish also falls within the catchment area of well-regarded Thomas Hardye School in Dorchester.

To a house of intrigue: the front of the house utterly belies its true impact. The generosity of accommodation is one element, but the exquisitely landscaped garden is quite another! It is only when you walk through the house, and realise both the views and the setting, is its compelling proposition truly understood.
Providing 3,384 ft2 of gross internal space, this is indeed a spacious home. It is also a home which has been both beautifully cared for and designed with both light and practicality in mind.
The HALLWAY is a welcoming space with polished timber flooring and staircase rising to the first floor providing plentiful room to greet your guests. A rather splendid SITTING/DINING ROOM gives considerable entertaining space and is divided into an upper area for dining, a lower area designed as a seating area with a cosy wood burner, and then a couple of steps down to more of a ‘snug’ which overlooks the garden and has immediate access to the terrace. Just off this room is a private STUDY, again with views of the garden.
The opposite end of the hallway is the KITCHEN/BREAKFAST ROOM which has an excellent range of timber-fronted units: appliances include four ovens (including one microwave & one incorporating a grill), a dish-washer, wine cooler and fridge/freezer. Full of light, there are bi-fold doors to the terrace which is awash with sunlight from the afternoon to the late evening in the Summer.
The adjacent UTILITY ROOM has a sink and space for tumble dryer and washing machine, plus considerable storage within the matching timber units, and also a double full length airing cupboard.
There is a CLOAKROOM, and also back door to the garden and internal door to the double garage.
On the FIRST FLOOR, there are FIVE DOUBLE BEDROOMS, one with an ensuite facility and a family bathroom.
The PRINCIPAL BEDROOM has a range of fitted wardrobes and a balcony which looks over the garden and field beyond; it also has an ENSUITE SHOWER ROOM with WC, basin, and walk-in shower.
The FAMILY BATHROOM has a separate shower cubicle, free-standing bath, and extra wide vanity unit. The BEDROOM over the garage is especially large and could provide a variety of uses.
Set within a plot of 0.352 acres, the garden is truly magnificent. Having been professionally landscaped, the concept was to create a fitting setting for the house but equally ensuring that it was not difficult to maintain. Varying seating areas designed to enjoy both light and shady areas, a separate kitchen garden, areas for entertaining and practical areas for storing implements etc. It is a design which has definitely succeeded – and a more engaging space is hard to imagine.
Given the split level nature of the house, there is a useful under croft storage area to the rear which provides considerable space for storage – and is a dry space for keeping logs too.
The driveway, although steep, has parking for three cars (or two large) on the drive and a larger than usual DOUBLE GARAGE with electrically operated doors, power and light and internal door to the house.
From Dorchester, take the A35 east towards the Puddletown by-pass. Leave the by-pass for the A354 Blandford Forum. At the roundabout, take a sharp left signposted Cheselbourne and Dewlish, followed by the first right. Proceed along, turning right at the left-hand bend signposted Dewlish. Continue along this road, passing the manor house and entering the village of Dewlish. Pass the public house on the left-hand side, then take next right: follow for about 1/4 a mile and then note Pound Lane on your left hand side. Turn up this no-through lane and the property is up on your left hand side.
