In recent years, the property market has become increasingly familiar with the ways in which modern technology can be used to reduce the environmental impact of a home, yet rarely are energy-saving features used to such great effect in a single property than at Sunnyside. Constructed in 2020 under the exacting eye of the current owners, this superb modern home was devised with the needs of a busy modern lifestyle in mind yet with stunning bespoke features at every turn. The property stands on a generous, primarily level plot of 0.1 of an acre within one of West Dorset's most desirable coastal villages, just a few hundred yards' walk of the glorious Jurassic Coast, and would make a fantastic full-time residence, second home or eco-friendly holiday let.
Individuality is a word that springs to mind upon entering the property. You cannot fail to immediately notice the fine chestnut wood which has been used throughout including timber panelled wall sections, ceiling beams, internal doors, the glass-sided staircase and even a stunning light fitting in the kitchen, to mention but a few. In the living/dining room area, the three-sided contemporary wood burner sets an appealingly comfortable atmosphere whilst the kitchen with its unique coloured glass-inlaid concrete-resin work surface above attractive fitted units fits perfectly with the country-to-coastal theme of the property. This exacting level of detail has even been continued into the dressing rooms, which both feature illuminated hanging rails, and the contemporary bathroom fittings including extraordinary hollowed-out stone basins.
Sunnyside's eco credentials are further proof of the care and expertise which has gone into the property throughout the design and build process. The underfloor heating, which stretches throughout the property on both floors, is operated by an air-sourced heat pump, and the power of the sun has been harnessed in both photovoltaic and solar themo panels, generating electricity and heating hot water respectively with storage batteries installed to ensure that excess electricity produced during particularly fine days can be called upon later if required. Furthermore, permission has been granted for an electric car charging point to be installed if desired, which would similarly be able to use power from the PV panels and storage batteries. This combination of renewably-sourced energy technology will ensure that the incoming purchaser can not only enjoy greatly reduced heating and energy costs but can also live a more sustainable life in great comfort and style.
Internally, the well proportioned accommodation has been thoughtfully laid out to ensure comfortable surroundings for a variety of purchasers. Much of the ground floor is arranged as an open-plan living room with a fitted kitchen and clever "slide and fold" doors leading directly to the garden, providing a seamless transition of indoor-outdoor living when weather allows. Also on the ground floor is a well appointed shower room with a large walk-in shower, a utility room with plumbing for laundry facilities, and a very large cupboard beneath the stairs. The first floor comprises three bedrooms, two of which enjoy generous double proportions and benefit from an ensuite dressing room and bathroom each. Bedroom 3 is a versatile room which could alternatively be used to great effect as a study, snug or hobby room if required.OUTSIDE
The south-facing gardens at Sunnyside are delightful, being primarily level and bordered on one side by a small stream. Mostly laid to lawn with a limestone/fossil buff paved sun terrace abutting the house and established flora including a eucalyptus tree, spending time out of doors and taking full advantage of the peaceful position in which the property stands is a joy. This is also the case after dark when clever illuminations throughout the garden set an equally appealing atmosphere for night-time al fresco dining, entertaining and relaxing.
