Converted with care, this former barn offers fantastic open-plan space in a peaceful village setting amidst rolling countryside and has river views where you can spot an abundance of wildlife.
The village of Charminster nestles within picturesque countryside, yet is the ideal base for touring, with the county town of Dorchester only two miles away and the Jurassic Coast World Heritage site within easy reach. For walkers, there are plenty of routes to explore in this pretty part of Dorset. Spend time observing the local wildlife, including buzzards, pheasants, kingfishers, otters, deer and birds or head to one of the many nearby attractions, such as the historic village of Cerne Abbas with its chalk giant carved into the hillside and Weymouth, which is nine miles away and is home to a sandy beach and long esplanade backed by beautiful Georgian buildings.
Set within the grounds of the owner’s home but with privacy assured, a shared driveway leads to the main entrance into this detached single storey property. Once inside this studio style accommodation, the welcoming open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner/sleeping area has bi-folding doors to the front which flood the room with natural light and offer wonderful views across the lawn to the river. Lining the rear of the space is a contemporary kitchen area complete with electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge with ice compartment, dishwasher and washer/dryer. Adjacent is a dining area for two and the lounge area with two comfortable chairs so that you can enjoy your favourite shows on the TV/DVD and Blu-ray player or admire the view. Cleverly divided by a privacy curtain if required, the inviting king-size bed also looks out over the garden and beyond. Completing the accommodation is a stylish shower room with shower and WC.
Heading outside from the bi-folding doors you will find a patio, large lawned area, bench and garden furniture where you can enjoy dining al fresco while admiring the views. Outdoor games are available to use including badminton and croquet. To the side of the property is off-road parking space suitable for two cars.
