About this property

  • Paddock Cottage is a fine detached family home situated within the peaceful hamlet of Deanland just north of the popular Dorset village of Sixpenny Handley.

    The accommodation is well-presented and versatile in layout, and may suit a variety of potential purchaser's needs. A welcoming and light reception hall provides access to the principal rooms including a large, light kitchen/breakfast room. The kitchen has fitted units and worktops, integrated double oven, stainless steel sink, electric hob and fridge. The kitchen also has double doors which open out to the front lawns creating a feeling of space and openness. A utility room adjoins the kitchen with another access leading to the rear garden.

    The dining room flows from the kitchen/breakfast room and has a bay window providing views out onto the rear garden. The living and sitting rooms are both light, double aspect rooms with excellent proportions and link together via double glass doors creating an ideal entertaining space.

    The downstairs bedroom is a fantastic addition to Paddock Cottage, with a separate entrance and bathroom. This area would be perfect as ancillary accommodation as a separate guest suite; granny annexe; or for bed and breakfast/holiday let.

    On the first floor, the master bedroom enjoys views over the rear garden and has the added benefit of built in wardrobe space and an en-suite bathroom. There are three additional double bedrooms which are facilitated by a family bathroom. A particular feature of the property is the generous room sizes and ample windows providing a light and airy feel.

    Paddock Cottage sits well within its grounds: a path leads through the front garden past the gable end of the property from the parking area to the front door. This garden is mainly laid to lawn with borders boasting a fine selection of mature trees and shrubs and delightful westerly views over the adjacent countryside.

    The gardens to the rear have been terraced and landscaped and offer a variety of different areas and vistas to enjoy. The gardens are linked by attractive stone steps and paths, with areas of lawn, terrace and decking surrounded by mature trees, shrubs and flower borders.

    Gated access from the garden leads into the paddock grounds which extend to approximately 0.8 of an acre. Within the paddock there is an area of hard standing which would be ideal for some stables, a summer house or a home office depending on your needs and preferences. There is also a separate entrance for vehicles to access the paddock from the lane. Furthermore there is a driveway with parking for several cars.
