  • Bedrooms: 5
Built in 1896, this handsome late Victorian home of red brick elevations under a slate roof is superbly positioned on a quieter one way section of Cornwall Road within easy, level walking distance to Dorchester town centre.

The typically generous room sizes of the Victorian period, along with the moulded cornicing, original sash windows, picture rails, feature fireplaces, stripped wooden floors and high ceilings create a delightful home.

A quarry tiled path leads to the front entrance into a vestibule, door to the entrance hall, housing the attractive staircase to the first and second floors. The hall gives access to two charming reception rooms as well as the recently refurbished kitchen/breakfast room.

The sitting room has a lovely bay window to the front and also a fireplace with 'Heta' wood burning stove and engineered oak timber flooring.

The dining room has painted wooden flooring with original French doors leading to the kitchen/breakfast room.

The kitchen/breakfast room is the heart of this house. There is a multi-fuel stove giving the breakfast/dining area a cosy feel and a large opening to the contemporary kitchen. The kitchen has wide French doors to the garden and has been fitted with a range of storage units with additional large pan drawers. There is a fitted slimline Bosch dishwasher, AEG electric oven and 4 ring gas hob. There is space for a tall fridge/freezer. The worktops give a modern luxury feel and are of Silestone quartz. To support the kitchen there is a utility / boot room with space for a washing machine, additional white goods and a door to the garden.

A huge benefit of this home is a good size cellar room which is accessed from a door in the entrance hall. With lots of storage space and good head height it could also be used as a workshop.

To the first floor, the master bedroom, situated at the front, spans the entire width of the house, with its stone mullion bay sash window and fireplace making for a very light and luxurious space. This room could easily accommodate an en-suite bathroom and dressing area if desired or could also be used as a further reception room.

There is a further double bedroom with original fireplace and an east facing window overlooking the garden; with a third single bedroom and a large family bathroom to the rear with free standing clawed bath and a recently fitted shower cubicle. A cupboard in the bathroom houses the newly fitted boiler and pressurised hot water cylinder. There is an additional WC on this level. A hatch in the single bedroom allows access to a fully insulated and boarded loft space which extends over the bedroom and bathroom.

Stairs rise to the second floor giving way to a spacious landing area where there are two further double bedrooms, each with original fireplaces, providing ample space for a growing family.

There is a small low maintenance garden to the front of the property with a low level walled boundary.

The rear garden is paved and is surrounded by brick boundary walls. At the end there is a large gate giving access to a pedestrian path and in turn the road. There is a large shed with bike storage at the end of the garden and a brick raised flower bed.

There is a residents' parking permit scheme for roadside parking
