Bedrooms: 4
A most impressive, individually built detached house delightfully situated in a peaceful position within the heart of this sought after village.

Constructed in 1979 with attractive Purbeck stone elevations under a tiled roof, the property is set in beautifully landscaped, walled gardens which originally formed part of Osmington House and stables.

On the ground floor, a useful entrance porch leads into a welcoming reception hall with stairs to the first floor with understairs cupboard, cloakroom and engineered oak floors which run throughout the ground floor reception rooms.

There is a spacious double aspect sitting room with stone fireplace and multi fuel stove, dining room with patio doors opening to the rear garden and study room/ 5th bedroom. The kitchen/breakfast room is well appointed with an extensive range of limed oak wall and floor cupboards, fitted with a matching range of De Dietrich appliances comprising an induction hob, double oven and microwave, integrated fridge and dishwasher. Double doors open to a useful pantry. The utility room has a matching range of units, wall mounted gas boiler, door to double garage and door to a boot room.

On the first floor is a spacious galleried landing enjoying a front aspect over the village with hatch and ladder to loft storage, airing cupboard and well appointed, fully tiled bathroom/shower room. There are four double bedrooms with the main bedroom having an extensive range of built in wardrobes and cupboards and a fully tiled en-suite shower room.

Outside, gated access from the lane leads onto a large tarmac driveway with parking for several cars and leading to an attached double garage with twin doors, power and light. The front garden is lawned and stocked with an abundance of mature shrubs and trees. To the side is a paved hardstanding and pergola.

Access leads to a delightful enclosed rear garden which is a particular feature with the original high brick and stone walls of Osmington House providing privacy and seclusion from neighbouring properties. Immediately adjoining the rear is a large, paved terrace with steps up to beautifully landscaped lawned gardens, interspersed with paved and gravelled paths, box hedging and an abundance of shrubs, plants and flower beds. At the far end of the garden is a further paved sun terrace, water feature, pergola and ornamental folly.

Osmington is a highly desirable village situated close to the World Heritage Jurassic coastline. The village itself has a Norman church and farm shop. The Sly Fox public house (currently closed) is within a short walking distance and due to be re-opened after refurbishment by a new owner.

A mini supermarket, post office, general store, three public houses, takeaway, restaurant, and primary school can be found very close by in Preston. Nearby is the old smuggling hamlet of Osmington Mills with access onto the coastal path and well regarded thatched public house. Within 4 miles is Weymouth, with its sandy beaches and inner harbour, and the neighbouring Isle of Portland.

The county town of Dorchester is within approximately eight miles of Osmington. Both Weymouth and Dorchester provide a wide range of shopping and leisure pursuits and main line rail links to both London Waterloo and Bristol Temple Meads.

There is excellent walking and riding in the immediate vicinity with a network of bridle and footpaths over the surrounding rolling countryside and along the stunning coastline.
