Property Details

4 3 2
A striking family home with four double sized bedrooms, enjoying far reaching rural views, a large sunny garden and situated in the favoured village of Hinton St Mary, which lies on the fringe of the market town of Sturminster Newton. It is believed that the property dates to the early 1900s and was once the home to the local carpenter - the original doors to the work shop still remain to the side elevation of the property. This substantial property has been the very much cherished and enjoyed home to our sellers for the last twelve and a half years. During this time it has been well maintained and improved yet retains many character features, which include some sash windows and nearly all fitted with Plantation style shutters, picture rails, exposed floorboards and fireplaces. The property also benefits from a new roof, some uPVC double glazing and an amazing conservatory/dining room that will certainly form the hub of the next family. To help protect the environment the property is fitted with wholly owned solar panels that provide an income and hot water in the summer plus a biomass boiler to provide heating and hot water in the winter months (under the Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) Scheme. This wonderful home offers well proportioned rooms with an easy to use layout that will definitely please the next lucky family. Viewing is crucial to appreciate what this home has to offer and to appreciate the village, which has a thriving community with its own cricket club, nursery school and youth club. There is also the village pub - The White Horse, a church with a 15th century tower and The Millenium Garden which was created by the community in 1999 to commemorate the new century and is maintained by local people and businesses
