STUNNING & BEAUTIFULLY PRESENTED DETACHED 4 BEDROOM, 3 BATHROOM HOME WITH SWIMMING POOL, HOT TUB & SAUNA
The hamlet of Harmans Cross located along the Valley Road between the Historic Village of Corfe Castle and the Seaside Town of Swanage, made all the more popular with the Swanage Steam Railway running through the valley, stopping at this tranquil period station between Swanage and Norden Halt, with many special events being held in the field adjacent to the newly built Village Hall and children’s play area. The village has two petrol stations both with small convenience shops and there is a pop- up post office, local walks are easily accessible, and the sandy beaches of Studland, Shell Bay and Swanage are all within a short drive.
Close by is the Isle of Purbeck golf club and an array of country walks overlooking the stunning bay of Islands and Poole harbour. Just around the corner is historic Corfe Castle, Dancing Ledge and the beautiful village of Studland which still supplies a regular chain ferry across to Poole and Sandbanks.
Hazelwood is a stunning and characterful detached home enviably located at the top of a beautiful valley, with a picturesque steam railway as a backdrop, all situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and butterfly conservation area. The property has been remodelled, renovated and modernised to an exceptionally high standard with consideration being taken both inside and externally, with a host of interesting eco features.
The beautiful grounds incorporate a stunning Swimming Pool with feature surrounding decked area including a hot tub, and secret sauna with personal changing room. Winding decked steps lead to a patio area with plenty of seating, incorporating an external kitchen/ barbecue/ pizza oven and refrigeration and water feature. Under an area of the decking is a cozy area perfect for those nights with wine watching the stars.
Internally the property has a stunning vaulted ceiling in the open planned main living area with a galleried wrap around mezzanine balcony. A large suspended solid wood burner is the central feature point with a unique extended chimney flue exiting some 40ft above. This art piece of a fireplace does a fantastic job of heating the whole house by spreading the heat from the main living area.
With space for a dining room set, a grand piano and lounge area, this well-designed room seamlessly flows into the open plan kitchens that boasts an array of top of the range integrated appliances and large work surface that extends into a breakfast bar allowing additional seating.
The property has 4 double bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and a study area all finished to the highest standard. Both the decor and flooring complete this bright and airy property.
To the front of the property are 2 garages, one currently being used as a personal gym, with beautiful views to look at whilst you work out. There is driveway parking for multiple vehicles, motor home or boat. Access to the rear from the right-hand flank of the property leads to an array of tiered lawns, space for vegetable patches and chickens, a wild area, a children's play area and an array of solar banks for the swimming pool heating.
An amazing extra, hidden under the decking, is a rain water re-harvesting system which supplies water to the utility appliances. Next to this is a lockable door allowing secure storage for wine and other storage needs.
To summarise, this is a beautifully presented and welcoming family home, boasting fantastic views and plenty of space, with careful attention to detail offered both internally and externally.
