Property Details

3 2 1
A comfortable and good sized extended detached three bedroom bungalow in need of updating and enjoying a quiet village location in the Wriggle Valley with distant rural views and backing onto farmland. The property is located in the popular and pretty village of Leigh, which lies about five miles from the picturesque and historic town of Sherborne. The village has plenty of community spirit with many events centred around the village hall, there is also the village shop with post office and garage, 15th century church, play park and a variety of clubs and societies. The bungalow is believed to have been built in the mid to late 1960s and this is the first time to the market in about thirty three years. The property was extended to the rear in 1987 to create additional kitchen space with the garage being added about ten years ago. The property offers generously sized space both internally and externally with plenty of scope to enhance and design to ones own taste. An early viewing is highly advisable to avoid disappointment on missing out on the chance to purchase this lovely home.
