Property Details

4 2 2
A most wonderful detached chalet home offering well proportioned rooms with flexible usage and situated in a small cul de sac on the edge of this popular Dorset village. We believe that the property was built in the 1960's and has been a very much cherished home to our sellers for nearly fifteen years. 'During this time it has been extremely well maintained and improved with a beautiful Bath stone fireplace and multi fuel burner, new German kitchen units were fitted with some integrated 'Neff 'appliances, as well as a Rayburn for heating, cooking and hot water. The en-suite bathroom has been replaced with a stylish contemporary suite and some of the internal doors have been changed to an Oak veneer style, plus some general redecoration. This lovely and comfortable home is just a short walk to the village, which benefits from a primary school, public house and garage with convenience store and lies betwixt the towns of Mere, Gillingham and Wincanton which offer a further range of facilities.
