Tarrant Gunville - Tarrant Gunville - An outstanding, brand new, contemporary, 5 bedroom detached country house in a delightful rural location within the Cranborne Chase (Area of Oustanding Natural Beauty,) with fabulous views. It has been built to a particularly high standard of specification, with great attention to detail, in a quiet country lane, well away from main roads and traffic noise in the beautiful Tarrant Valley.

The hamlet of Stubhampton is located about a mile from the village of Tarrant Gunville which has a farm shop, a village hall and a parish church. The market town of Blandford Forum is within 15 minutes’ drive, and the city of Salisbury and coastal towns of Poole and Bournemouth are all easily accessible by road.

Virage offers spacious living accommodation of over 3800 square feet, arranged over 2 floors, with numerous full height glass screens taking advantage of the stunning views over the surrounding countryside. The house is traditionally built, of cavity construction, with rendered Purbeck stone and cedar elevations, grey powder-coated aluminium double glazed windows and exterior doors, a natural slate roof and a stone chimney.

Features include fully tiled bathrooms, Calor gas under floor heating (with sunken tanks,) LED downlighters throughout, oak internal doors with stainless steel fittings, and wide oak boarded flooring to principal areas of the ground floor, and carpeting. There is private drainage.

The property has an impressive integral double garage/workshop (with remote opening doors,) from which a staircase leads up to the large reception hall. This boasts full height windows overlooking the rear garden and farmland beyond and leads to a large living room, which has a Jetmaster log burner, and 2 pairs of bifold doors and a full height glass screen, taking advantage of the stunning outlook down the valley. Next to this is an additional sitting room/study.

A particularly special feature is the magnificent kitchen/family room which has a walk-in larder, high gloss units, quartz work surfaces and a range of built-in appliances including double oven, microwave, coffee machine, integrated fridge and freezer, dishwasher, touch-control induction hob and extractor. Bifold doors, full height windows and screens provide outstanding country views

There is also a large utility/boot room with a sink, work surfaces, cupboards and a door to outside. Beside this is a cloakroom.

A solid oak and stainless steel staircase leads to an impressive, semi-galleried landing with full height glass screens. The spacious master bedroom has a large dressing room which leads to an impressive en suite bath/shower room with twin basins. Bedroom 2 has an en suite shower room, and there are 3 further spacious bedrooms and a family bath/shower room.

Virage is approached via hardwood double gates and a tarmac driveway which leads into a stoned courtyard. The gardens, which surround the house, are enclosed by post-and-rail, post-and-wire, and close boarded fencing. There are extensive sandstone terraces and pathways, and a retaining wall with beds ideal for planting.
