Property Details

4 3 2
A fantastic chance to purchase a very special detached chalet style home with four double sized bedrooms and brought to the market for the first time in thirty three years. This delightful home enjoys a tranquil location down a no through lane, boasting some splendid views over the Blackmore Vale and the river Stour and sits in grounds extending to about one and a third of an acre yet is within a short walk to the centre of one of Dorset's popular market towns. The property offers flexible accommodation that will certainly meet many potential buyers' needs and must be viewed to truly appreciate the size, layout and its position. Over the years the property has benefited from some double glazing, the addition of a porch, second garage, shed and summerhouse and greenhouse/conservatory. The gas fired central heating boiler was replaced in March 2020. This lovely home provides comfortable accommodation with scope to further enhance and mark it with one's own stamp and has plenty of room to extend. An early viewing is highly advisable to avoid missing out on owning this wonderful home.
