DOMVS, in assoc. with Fine & Country, is delighted to offer this five-double bedroom home, sitting in over half an acre of garden, in a sought-after village close to the Jurassic coast. Our vendor says, "For me, the office has been a life-saver, being able to work from home has been priceless."
The house sits in the centre of the village of Winfrith Newburgh, a very popular semi-rural village lying almost equidistant between the towns of Dorchester and Wareham. Just on the edges of the Isle of Purbeck, its unique beauty is reflected in its status as a designated area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village itself enjoys many amenities including an award-winning village shop and Post Office, public house, church, pre-school and primary school, and an active village hall. It is also close to Lulworth Cove, a natural horseshoe shaped harbour forming part of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site.

A superbly flexible detached house, perfectly designed for family living and in a surprisingly and, rather unexpectedly, large plot – just over half an acre of garden.
The front door is accessed from a brick built STORM PORCH, and the spacious ENTRANCE HALL leads to all the principle ground floor rooms. The SITTING ROOM is large and light with windows to the side and generous sliding patio doors which open onto the terrace. A Purbeck stone fire surround houses a gas fire 'wood effect' burner. The OFFICE is a large room which could be used as a formal DINING ROOM if required, and adjacent is a STUDY, presently used for storage and as a utility area. The KITCHEN/DINING ROOM is a great space, with tiled flooring, attractive wall and base units under timber work surfaces, a stylish gas AGA and also an electric oven and induction hob. There is an integral large fridge and dishwasher and space for a washing machine. A rather lovely walk-in LARDER is a useful addition! There is ample room for a very large dining table and a comfy sofa – superb family space. Two double patio doors give access to the large terrace and onto the fabulous garden. Additionally on this level is BEDROOM 5, a lovely double room, overlooking the front of the property and a smart, contemporary WET ROOM services this ground floor bedroom and makes for useful generational or guest areas. Under the stairs you will find a handy storage cupboard.
From the inner hall, stairs rise to the FIRST FLOOR and four further DOUBLE BEDROOMS. All bedrooms overlook the pretty village views at the front of the property and are of a good size. The MASTER is a very large double with an En-Suite WC with wash basin – there is room here to put in a shower if required. The Master also has a WALK-IN WARDROBE/DRESSING ROOM with natural light from a Velux skylight. The FAMILY BATHROOM is attractively tiled and has a bath tub and separate shower unit, WC and wash basin. There are two accesses to extensive eaves storage and a useful airing cupboard along the long and light landing. This all makes for an extremely versatile family home!
A driveway leads to both the front and side of the property, providing parking for 3/4 vehicles and access to a timber built DOUBLE GARAGE with power and light. Rather useful for those with electric cars is a charging station on the main drive. At the rear of the property an extensive TERRACE runs the full width of the property and stone steps take you up to the glorious GARDEN of approximately HALF AN ACRE, part of which is lawn and, on the other side of a picket fence is a NATURAL garden with 2 ponds and a number of mature trees – the garden is a wonderful blank canvas. There are two timber GARDEN SHEDS and a children's PLAYHOUSE. From the garden are views across the villages pretty cottage rooftops to the countryside beyond.
