Plowman Close, Marnhull, Sturminster Newton - £305,000 For Sale

Property Details

2 2 1
Plowman Close is a highly sought after location in Marnhull near all the amenities of this charming Dorset village. There is a general store and post office, the recreation ground with tennis courts, the village hall, doctor’s surgery with pharmacy and a friendly local garage. Also in walking distance is one of the finest public houses in the West Country that featured in Thomas Hardy’s Tess of the d’Urbervilles.
Number 18 sits at the top of this quiet cul-de-sac in approximately a quarter of an acre of well maintained private gardens with mature shrubs and trees. The aspect to the south provides a view of the iconic tower of St Gregory’s church.
The bungalow is beautifully presented and was completely renovated and redesigned in 2004 with the addition of a large conservatory extension. A modern bathroom/wet room with walk in shower and high quality fitted kitchen were also added. The whole accommodation is light and spacious with views from the living room and kitchen through to the patio and garden. The inclusion of substantial glass doors mean that in summer the living areas can be open plan but remain warm, light and secure in winter. The property has a recent Vaillant combination boiler and is very well insulated with low maintenance UPVC windows throughout.
There is a garage and off street parking on the driveway for at least three cars.
There is no onward chain and an early viewing of this lovely home is highly recommended.
