The three-bedroom property is on the edge of the Dorset village of Gaunts Common, bordering onto open fields too, which should mean some peace and tranquility. The accommodation is bullet around a double-height dining area with large skylight, offering those three bedrooms, along with an open plan living space with Norwegian wood-burning stove, a kitchen / breakfast room, large utility room and two first floor balcony areas that can be adapted to provide further study or sleeping space.

Some nice detailing too, including pale Purbeck stone used for the columns and fire surrounds, a darker type of Purbeck stone for the work surfaces in the kitchen and a range of woods including iroko (for the windows), wenge (for the door veneers) and white stained softwood throughout the interior.

Outside, you’ll find a garage, a mature (and well maintained) garden and a sizeable lawn area, plus concrete terracing.

It is on the market for £550,000.
