An enviable nine-bed Victorian home with period features, a cellar and swimming pool in the heart of Dorchester is on the market.

Symonds and Sampson estate agent is offering the Wales House on Prince of Wales Road with a guide price on £1 million.

The impressive detached house boosts a host of character features, including bay windows, moulded cornicing, feature fireplaces, sash windows and high ceilings.

The extensive accommodation is arranged over three floors, offering very spacious living, with the third floor having the potential of a self-contained annexe.

On the ground floor at the front of the property there are two generous reception rooms with high ceilings and sash windows.

To the rear of the property, on one side of the entrance hall, is a large reception room with bay windows and feature fireplace, with double doors opening into a Victorian conservatory.

To the other side of the entrance hall is the dining room, which leads through to the kitchen/dining room with an Aga. There is access off the kitchen to the garage, utility and down to the cellar.

Returning to the entrance hall there is a shower room and stairs rise to the first floor where there are five double bedrooms, two bathrooms and w/c.

The second floor is currently accessed via bedroom four, but could be rearranged so that the staircase leads off the first-floor landing. On the second floor are a further four bedrooms, study and a bathroom.

To the front of the property is a gravelled driveway which provides sufficient parking for several cars and access to the garage. The rear garden, which faces south, is predominantly laid to lawn and planted with shrubs and plants as well as some mature trees to provide privacy. To the western side to the property, you can find the heated outdoor swimming pool.

For all enquiries and to arrange a viewing, call Symonds and Sampson on 01305 261008.
