Beech Close - Spetisbury - A stunning, contemporary style 4/5 bedroom detached house with a magnificent open plan kitchen/living area opening onto a superb terrace and long garden with direct frontage to the River Stour (with boating and fishing rights), set at the end of a small cul-de-sac away from the road.

Spetisbury is a popular village with historic church, Primary School, farm shop, and scenic walks along the River Stour and the North Dorset Trailway, just south of Blandford Forum which offers an extensive range of amenities.

This impressive village home has undergone a major programme of extension and re-modelling, and has been refurbished to a high standard of specification including gas fired under floor heating, powder-coated aluminium double glazed windows, high quality kitchen and bathroom fittings, porcelain tiled floors throughout the ground floor, and Karndean flooring to the first floor.

There is provision to create a self-contained annexe (by using the dining room as a bedroom, converting the garage into a lounge and the utility room into the kitchen, and using the existing shower room).

A high gabled entrance porch leads to an reception hall with a high vaulted ceiling and a personal door to the garage. The superb open plan living room/kitchen has full height aluminium powder-coated triple sliding doors to a large terrace, a raised fireplace, wood burning stove, marble display plinth with storage below, recessed log store, and lantern light.

The bespoke kitchen has quartz worktops, contrasting painted and wood veneer units including full height shelved larder, island/breakfast bar, full height fridge and freezer, 2 Siemens electric induction hobs, cooker hood above, single teppanyaki hob (for Japanese cuisine), integrated dishwasher, twin Siemens ovens with steam and microwave provision and sink with boiling/filtered water facilities.

There is a separate dining room/bedroom 5 and a fully tiled shower room with walk-in shower, concealed cistern WC and circular stone sink. The spacious utility room has sliding doors to storage, space and plumbing for washing machine, space for tumble dryer, and airing cupboard housing Worcester gas central heating boiler and pressurised hot water system.

From the hall, an oak staircase leads to the first floor where there are 4 double bedrooms. The superb master suite has a high vaulted ceiling with a cathedral window and double glazed doors to a Juliet balcony, fitted drawers and dressing table, a dressing room and an en suite bath/shower room with walk-in shower, sunken bath, concealed cistern WC and wash basin.

The contemporary style family bathroom has a corner bath (with shower above), wash basin and WC.

A tarmac driveway provides ample parking for 2 vehicles and leads to an integral garage with electric roller door, lighting and power points. A side gate gives access to the impressive rear garden where there is a raised terrace with wide steps down to a large lower patio suitable for alfresco dining, and a spacious summerhouse/outbuilding with lighting and power. Plumbing can also be found to the rear of the property with a decking area currently housing a hot tub and a further seating area.

Steps lead down to a large lawn interspersed with trees and shrubs, extending down to the River Stour, where there is a further seating area, an outside shower and access for kayaks.
