A delightful detached bungalow located on the fringe of this popular Dorset village and offering potential to enhance and mark it with one's own stamp. The property is within walking distance of the village hall, which hosts a variety of activities and events taking place on the recreational grounds behind, the primary school and church with the village centre and shop, which has a tea shop and visiting post office, a little further on. There is also the Copperidge Inn - a traditional country pub with rooms which is just on the outskirts of the village. Both Shaftesbury and Gillingham with a mainline train station are within easy reach. We believe that the bungalow is about sixty years old and has been the much cherished home to our seller for the last twenty five years or so. The property benefits from double glazing, gas fired central heating via radiators and has the added bonus that the vendor has found something to purchase on. Although the bungalow offers comfortable accommodation there is potential to enhance. An early viewing is strongly recommended to avoid missing out on the opportunity to purchase this home.
