Property Details

4 2 2
A delightful semi detached chalet bungalow with four double bedrooms sitting in a good sized plot extending to around quarter of an acre and located in the small Dorset village of Holwell surrounded by the beautiful Blackmore Vale countryside. The village boasts the oldest pillar box still being used in Britain today and has an historical church dating back to around 1480. Approximately a mile and half away is the village of King Stag which has a public house and garage/shop. Just five miles away is the beautiful historic town of Sherborne, which has a mainline train station serving London Waterloo and the West Country. Over the last four years, the property has benefited from a new, more usable staircase, new ceilings and walls plus some new carpeting and floor tiling as well as replacement double glazing to the front of the property and a redecoration on the ground floor. This lovely comfortable home offers well proportioned rooms with scope to further enhance and mark it to ones own taste and will certainly go a long way to satisfy many requirements. Viewing is vital to not only appreciate the inside but the outside too, which has plenty of space for children and pets to let off steam.
