The Denhalls is an attractive Edwardian home built in 1910 and sits in just under one acre of gardens overlooking the River Stour and the Blackmore Vale beyond. The house is light and spacious with impressive high ceilings and character features you would expect of a home of this period. It has been meticulously restored and refurbished by the current owners as well as extended with a fabulous orangery which takes full advantage of the west facing gardens and the stunning views beyond.
The accommodation is beautifully balanced and arranged over three floors. The ground floor caters for both day-to-day living with its practical kitchen/breakfast room with Aga and informal sitting room while the more formal dining room and drawing room linked by the impressive orangery make a wonderful space for entertaining. The master bedroom with its walk-in wardrobe and en-suite shower room enjoys wonderful natural light from both its south and west facing bay windows. There are five further well-proportioned double bedrooms, a family bathroom and shower room.
The Denhalls is situated on the edge of Sturminster Newton, a historic market town, the amenities including a supermarket, doctors’ and dentists’ surgeries, vets, public houses, restaurants and an array of independent shops as well as the award winning country store, Harts of Stur; and SturFit leisure centre. There are both state primary and secondary schools in the town and the area is well served by independent schools at Bryanston, Shaftesbury, Sherborne School for Boys, Sherborne School for Girls, Sherborne Preparatory School, Hanford, Knighton House, Clayesmore, Port Regis, Sandroyd and Canford.
There are mainline railway stations at Sherborne and Gillingham with direct services to London Waterloo and the A303 is located to the north providing a route towards London and the Home Counties.
Sporting facilities in the area include golf at Henstridge, Sherborne and Rushmore, horse racing at Wincanton, Exeter and Bath and water sports can be enjoyed to the south at Poole Harbour, Weymouth and beaches along the Jurassic Coast.
The mature gardens and grounds are a particularly special feature of the property. The gated driveway provides a sweeping entrance towards the front of the house and the driveway continues round to the side of the property giving access to the double garage, carport and further outbuildings. The gardens are primarily laid to lawn and bordered by mature trees, shrubs and plants. The current owners have created a superb west facing terrace directly accessible from the house which is a wonderful spot to enjoy the impressive outlook enjoyed by The Denhalls. A further area of garden to the east of the plot makes for a productive vegetable garden as currently utilised.
In all, The Denhalls sits in approximately 0.9 of an acre.
