SituationRoseleigh is situated within the delightful village of Winterbourne Abbas, five miles west of the historic county town of Dorchester. The village boasts a parish church, a garage, a first school and what is probably Dorsets best example of a standing stone circle, known as "Nine Stones". Dorchester is steeped in history enjoying a central position along the Jurassic Coastline and also some of the county's most noted period architecture, all set amongst a beautiful rural countryside. The town offers a plethora of shopping and social facilities including cinemas, museums, leisure centre, Borough Gardens and a choice of many excellent public houses and restaurants. The town also has two main employers, namely the Dorset County Hospital and the Dorset County Council. There are also major train links to London Waterloo and Bristol Temple Meads and regular bus routes to adjoining towns.

Key FeaturesThe property benefits from two generous reception rooms. The sitting room enjoys an abundance of character and features an attractive fireplace with exposed brick surround and open fire. A separate dining room provides additional living accommodation and offers a further fireplace with multi burner stove, wonderful flagstone flooring, exposed beams and a set of French doors that provide access to the garden.
