Sixpenny Handley is a thriving village with local shops, a Church, school and public house that sits in Dorset just on the Wiltshire border. Positioned within the Cranbourne Chase area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and conveniently situated for Salisbury and Blandford Forum – both accessed via the A354.
The original house which is believed to date back to 18<sup>th</sup> Century is of attractive red brick and flint construction with a tiled roof and sash windows. The property has been sympathetically renovated and modernised offering deceptively spacious accommodation with the benefit of modern fittings providing a splendid blend of original features and contemporary living. The gardens are mature and secluded with open fields to the rear and extensive views to the side.
Entering the property via the Entrance Hallway with stairs that lead to the first floor and a door opening to the Lounge/Diner. A wonderful room that is large enough to cater for both relaxation and entertaining whilst keeping the coziness required of a cottage sitting area. There are stained glass windows and an exposed red brick feature wall with a stunning central fireplace! The Kitchen/Breakfast Room is extensive with ample fitted storage units and work surfaces. There is an electric hob and oven that gives the choice of electric or AGA cooking. Tiled flooring throughout with beams above give a character feel, ideal when relaxing in the breakfast area enjoying a coffee and good book. Additionally there is also a downstairs bedroom that also has a utility room and a shower room adjacent to it. With windows and double doors to the side, it really doesn't take much imagination to see the potential of this room that could easily include Annex usage or perhaps it could even provide an income with Air B&B potential?
The first floor has a lengthy landing with doors that access all bedrooms. The Master Bedroom is simply gorgeous with a generous size, a feature fireplace and double doors that open onto the rear garden. To the side is a impressive En-Suite Bathroom with a corner shower, w/c, wash hand basin and free standing roll top bath. There is also additional storage cupboards here for your convenience.
All three further bedrooms are double in size whilst the Family Bathroom is fitted with a shower, wash hand basin and a paneled bath. The W/C is separate and positioned next door.
Externally there is extensive paved areas and private patio, perfect for breakfast or an evening relaxing with a cold glass of wine, or perhaps a tipple of one of the locally brewed "Sixpenny Ales".
The gardens are lawned with mature shrubs, a raised decked seating area and a pond. They also occupy an elevated position to the front level. Because of this, the gardens are secluded with nothing but fields to the rear and countryside views to one side.
The front has an extensive graveled driveway that could provide off road parking for up to eight cars. There are flowers and shrubs as well as a small pond.
Furthermore, there is a large detached garage that has been converted to a storage area, large workshop and a shower room. This out building could easily be transformed back to garaging, made into an annex or simply kept as it is, perfect for a home worker or hobbyist.
In short this is a wonderful family home that offers cozy living but is also perfect for entertaining family and friends. Over the years this has been a very happy home, and now the doors are open to a new lucky purchaser.
Viewings are very much advised.
