Huntley Down, Blandford Forum, DT11 0LN

5 bedroom house for sale

*GUIDE PRICE £650,000-£675,000*. Kentwell Lodge is a 5 BEDROOM DETACHED PROPERTY set in the popular village of Milborne St Andrew and is one of the most OUTSTANDING examples of a David Wyatt built home we have seen. Constructed in 1999, the property is FULL of CHARACTER, over 2500 sq ft in total and has been in the same ownership since new.

Having been present at it's build, the current owners were able to add personal touches from the outset and are responsible for a completely heavenly property that oozes quality, individuality and character throughout. What an opportunity this is for a family, or couple, to move into a home that has been so lovingly updated over the years.

From the outset you are struck by the SHEER ELEGANCE of this property with high ceilings and a true feeling of comfort. The latest addition only a few years ago, is new OAK FLOORING throughout the ground floor which only adds to the feeling of country chic. Newly installed Green Oak to the front porch was hand-crafted by a local artisan, adding to the already attractive KERB APPEAL. Cat 5 HARD WIRED INTERNET through the house and to the (insulated) Summer House/office in the garden, means this property is ripe for modern day living where individuals WORK from HOME and who might require two separate work spaces, or prefer one external to the main residence. The central heating system is intelligent; a Honeywell EVO home zoned system provides on demand heating to each room, thus lowering the running costs. In addition to this, the SOLAR PANELS (owned) provide an annual income of circa £1300. The property has 5 good sized bedrooms, the master and principal guest room both being ENSUITE whilst the remaining bedrooms have the share of the family bathroom.

Beautiful personal touches to the house also include the STAINED GLASS windows to the upper floor internal doors and sky tube to match the front door; a 100 year old beam transported from Suffolk at the time of build, was set in place over the uniquely designed INGLENOOK FIREPLACE and LOG BURNER in the living room. The false but ANTIQUE BREAD OVEN set as a feature to the side of the fireplace, adds more character along with the EXPOSED BRICKWORK in this property. The WROUGHT IRON VERANDA covering the patio came from the Midlands and is quite simply a stunning piece of workmanship and offers a true extension to your entertaining space.

The property has an inviting entrance hall with a VAULTED CEILING setting the scene as you enter this home. The living room/diner is welcoming and warm, full of character and beautifully presented, oak floors and exposed brick work to the fireplace. The BREAKFAST ROOM leads to a CONSERVATORY/SUMMER ROOM with log burner allowing for all year use, the kitchen has been redesigned to allow for maximum work space. A SEPARATE UTILITY ROOM with lean-to porch to the garden, gives space for your white goods and integral fridge/freezer. The GROUND FLOOR STUDY is set down a couple of steps and to the side of the house so you can work, and then shut the door to it when finished. The use of Farrow and Ball paint throughout the property increases the sense of quality and depth to the character seen here.

Externally, the garden is mature and PROFESSIONALLY LANDSCAPED providing interest all year round. Separated into areas to include a raised VEGETABLE PLOT, pond, patio area and (artificial) lawn, manicured hedges and matures shrubs are all very neat and manageable. The Summer House is fully insulated, with power and internet allowing for several uses.

The INTEGRAL DOUBLE GARAGE has a fully insulated electric door (key fob), power and an ELECTRIC CAR CHARGING POINT to the front where you will find OFF-ROAD PARKING for at least 3 cars.
