Details:
Located just on the outskirts of Dorchester so its very convenient to all the amenities of this lovely town including community centre, library, shops, hair and spa facilities, grocery store, video rentals, sports facilities and much much more. Its a short drive into London if you wish to do major shopping.

Terrific schools, parks, playgrounds and enjoy the trails and beauty of the Thames right out your own back door!!

Nestled at the back of this 12 acre heavily treed parcel is this charming estate home. There is a long winding driveway that passes 2 ponds on the way to the house. Lovingly landscaped over many, many years with lots of parking available as well as privacy.

Enjoy many summer evenings on your private patio area which sits high over the Thames River or spend the afternoon out of the sun in the custom built gazebo. You will certainly have room to roam on this property. This home is an absolute dream for the avid gardener whether its fruits and vegetables or flowers. You can use the water from the river to water!

This one owner 3 level side split is about 3100 square feet of finished space!

The shingles were done 5 or 6 years ago and the front deck that runs across the 2nd level was all redone 2 years ago and stained recently. The gazebo is only 3 years old and the patio area was fenced about 5 years ago too. The curb appeal is very attractive and the setting breathtaking.

The gracious double doored entry opens to a huge double foyer which gives you a view to the wonderful sunken living room and the rear glass enclosed sun room.

The formal livinging room boasts a wall of ledge rock for the outstanding fireplace as well you will love all the light from a wall of windows and the tongue and grove cathedral ceiling. The fireplace was converted to gas about 10 years ago and the owners had Edwards glass design and install wonderful stained glass transoms.

The formal dining room is open to the living room and also has a large window for lots of light. Entertaining in these two rooms would be a pleasure. This home exudes a sense of style and class and guests will truly feel special and at the same time at home here.

The eat-in kitchen is next door to the sun room so it could be used as an eating area if one has a large family or a main floor family room. The kitchen cupboards were redone and a floating island installed so it makes a terrific work triangle. There is a pantry or closet area, dishwasher and double sinks plus ceramic flooring. You can access the garage easily from here or the side yard and there is a guest bath off this room too.

The sun room makes a fabulous plant room and has direct access to the rear patio which is surrounded by tall hedges. It would also make a terrific reading area or family room. This room has ledge rock and wood accents.

Up a short flight of stairs are 4 large bedrooms all with ample closet space. One bedroom has a walk in closet and door to the wrap around deck.  Another bedroom has built in cupboards as well as a closet and would make a great office.

The family bath is on this level with a triple vanity and tub. There is also a guest bath on the main floor off the kitchen and a shower and hot tub room on the 3rd level.

The hot tub room was formerly an office with outside entry and could be converted back. This room would also be great if the new owner wanted to add an inground pool as there is room in the yard nearby.

The 3rd level is strictly designed for entertaining. A huge area for a pool table and there is a large bar. Plenty of room for TV viewing and gatherings of both friends and family.

Don't worry there is lots of storage in your laundry/mudroom/furnace area next to the family room on the 3rd level.

The large workshop is divided into 2 sections and had oil heating but the tank has been removed. It is insulated, has hydro, water and 2 lofts. It is far enough away from the house you could use it for business or just for more storage and it would make a terrific garage as it has newer garage doors.

As well this property offers future development potential for a housing subdivision.
