Property Details

4 2 2
A wonderful chance to purchase a well proportioned detached family character home with four generously sized bedrooms and enjoying a large sunny and private rear garden. The property lies on the fringe of the popular and well served village of Marnhull, within walking distance of the Blackmore Vale Inn and the village shop. The village hall and doctor's surgery with pharmacy are also within easy reach as is the primary school. This charming home dates to 1862 with an historic sympathetic extension to the rear creating a fabulous entertainment or family space and a large master suite. The property has been the very much cherished home to our selling family for the last fifteen years. The property is in good decorative order however, could benefit from some updating in the coming years and the current asking price reflects this. This lovely home benefits from excellent internet connection for those looking to work from home, double glazing and gas fired central heating from a combination boiler that was installed about 9 months ago. The property retains many character features, such as cottage style windows with deep sills and fireplaces. It is essential that this home is viewed, not just for the internal accommodation but also for the peaceful location where farmland and the nature reserve nuzzle the garden.
