Spacious is the one word that should appear in almost every sentence describing this peaceful home. Whilst tucked in a quiet, sunny spot it has expansive rooms by anyone’s standards, a cleverly designed layout and is surrounded by glorious gardens.

As you drive down the short, private road to reach Lorelei you are welcomed with beds of well-established shrubs and plants, surrounding a large parking area. Hedging provides privacy for the main gardens. Step through the front door into a bright and welcoming HALLWAY, from which all rooms lead.

To the left, you enter through glazed double doors into the generous SITTING ROOM which has plenty of room for comfy sofas where sliding doors open onto a sunny, private courtyard garden. The attractive Purbeck Stone fireplace is wonderful to snuggle up in front of during colder winter months. Further double doors open into the KITCHEN, another generously sized room with windows above the sink and larger windows and door opening onto the rear garden. There is a good selection of base and eye level storage, oven, hob etc. It is a large space that easily accommodates a dining table and arguably has enough room to dance a tango!

Off the hallway are the sleeping quarters. Directly in front is BEDROOM 3 / STUDY with views out to the rear garden. Turn right and there is the large PRINCIPAL BEDROOM with bountiful wardrobes and windows opening out onto the sunny frontage. There is a contemporary ENSUITE with walk-in shower, wash hand basin and W.C. Next to this is the FAMILY BATHROOM. This is yet another sizeable room, fully tiled, with whirlpool bath, W.C., and wash hand basin. Then there is BEDROOM 2, a good-sized double room, again with plenty of wardrobe space and beautiful garden views.

At Lorelei you can step out of one of many doors into the gardens, which wrap around this home. From the sitting room sliding doors you step into a south facing courtyard garden, ideal for balmy summer evenings, or as a party terrace for larger gatherings. Even in winter this sunny terrace still captures the heat and extends the amount of time that can be spent outside. Leading from this are gently sloping gardens, topped by an attractively styled pond, and edged with established beds and onto further gardens to the rear.

From the Kitchen door there are attractive steps down to the rear gardens, where it is tempting to sit with a cup of tea and take in the views across trees, to the Purbeck hills beyond. With raised vegetable beds to the left, to the right it leads past further attractive bedding to the DOUBLE GARAGE which has an automatic door and is plumbed with a sink, that could lend this as a useful utility space. To the side of the garage is the GARDEN SHED, and discrete shelter for bins etc. a side gate accesses the block paved driveway, which can accommodate multiple cars.

From the principal bedroom Patio doors open out onto a small patio, with characteristically attractive planting, offering yet another vista from this home.

Because it is so sheltered, this garden has been a perfect base for creating this well-loved and nurtured garden and you will be delighted by the planting that will emerge throughout the year.

Harmans Cross has everything you could hope for from a small Dorset village. The two petrol stations each have a convenience store and one also has a post office, where one never has to queue. The village hall doubles up as cinema and occasional pub, to the delight of the locals. You can walk from the house and soon be on the ridge to go to Corfe or Swanage or longer walks take you to the coastal path. Lorelei is in a very quiet location, the most unusual sound being that of the steam railway as it progresses from Harmans Cross Halt to Corfe Castle and Norden. Apart from that, the predominant sound is that of birdsong, most noticeable in the morning and end of the day.

Situated between Corfe Castle and Swanage Harmans Cross misses the seasonal surge of visitors while still having easy access to the facilities of both.
