Property Details

2 1 2
A rare opportunity to purchase a modern barn style home with a bright and spacious interior, presented to the market with the bonus of no onward chain and boasting a quiet but not isolated location surrounded by Dorset's beautiful countryside. The property was built about fourteen years ago in the grounds of an old barn and forms part of a small development of just two other similar type properties. Originally the cottage was used as a successful holiday let and more recently rented out on an assured tenancy basis, however, the property would also make a fabulous weekend retreat from a hectic city life, holiday home and base for exploring Dorset and the adjoining counties or equally as a main residence for those looking for a country lifestyle. This delightful home benefits from oil fired central heating and double glazing. An internal viewing is essential to really appreciate this lovely property's interior space as well as the location, which is on the outskirts of the small village of Bagber and just four and half miles to the market town of Sturminster Newton in one direction and three miles to Stalbridge in the opposite direction.

In brief, the accommodation consists of entrance hall, L shaped dual aspect sitting and dining room with wood burner, kitchen and utility. There is also a downstairs cloakroom. On the first floor there are two double bedrooms, master with en-suite bathroom and a separate shower room. Outside there are allocated parking spaces and enclosed front and rear gardens. The rear backs onto open fields.
