A most charming detached stone cottage with a contemporary twist, a large garden and lovely views.
Aller Green Farm is likely to date back to the 18th century and is a quintessential Dorset village cottage of immense charm and character, although in this instance with a striking modern twist. The original house has stone and brick elevations under a newly thatched roof and in the last two years during a complete renovation of the entire property and gardens, a contemporary rear extension was added to the cottage providing an outstanding new wing' comprising a wonderful large kitchen with solid wood freestanding units, four oven electric Aga and sliding glass doors to a terrace and the garden, a boot room/utility room and on the first floor a master bedroom suite with balcony. The old part of the cottage in contrast retains immense charm and character with fireplaces at both ends of the sitting room, one with wood burning stove, as well as exposed ceiling timbers, engineered oak floors and on the first floor two pretty bedrooms with glorious views over the front garden and countryside beyond.
The gardens at Aller Green Farm are a major feature of the property. From a quiet lane, the house is approached via a private gravelled drive which sweeps round to the rear of the property where there is access to a double garage with pitched roof and an adjoining lean-to store. The rear boundary of the new extension has a terrace leading out from the kitchen, beyond which the gravel drive continues to the pretty garden room/home office which has power and light. The mature, well stocked gardens fan out to the rear and are bordered by open farmland which offers splendid views. Adjacent to the garage is a kitchen garden area with raised beds. In all the grounds extend to about 0.7 acres.
