Take a look inside an iconic Dorchester property with ‘the big window.’

Most people will recognise the property with the giant window that sits at the end of Icen Way and now is your chance to have a sneak peek inside as it goes up for sale for £595,000.

The grade II listed home is bursting with character and is set within the conversion of old farm buildings in Fordington

 Fordington Dairy was a 19th century working dairy which was converted into homes in 1990.

Inside, there are plenty of exposed brick walls and wooden beams and vaulted ceilings which really bring the property to life.

This unique build is set up in an ‘upside down’ style, with the kitchen situated on the upper floor alongside two smaller bedrooms, a bathroom and a large sitting room.

The kitchen/ dining room comes across as having a more modern layout compared to the rest of the property.

The property boasts two staircases which offer access to the ground and first floor, with the most impressive being the spiral staircase which takes you from the upstairs sitting room to a downstairs family room.

Wooden panels cascade the ceiling of the family room, enhanced by the exposed brickwork and a fantastic amount of natural lighting from the floor to ceiling window - and the current owners have even found the space for what appears to be an oversized piano.

This spacious five-bedroom home is set out across approximately 2,366 square feet, and natural light is definitely a key feature along with skylights, large windows and glass panelled doors.

Parking is outside in a courtyard area enclosed by a large black double gate embellished with gold lettering spelling out ‘Fordington Dairy.’

Fordington Dairy is a beautifully designed conversion of old farm buildings, which are all set around a central quadrangle, and each property has been designed around its origins.

Some of the properties on the conversion were originally stable block, and a dairy barn.
