Property Details

3 2 1
A bright and well proportioned detached bungalow with three double sized bedrooms and sitting in about a third of an acre plot on the fringe of the popular village of Motcombe, which lies between the towns of Gillingham and Shaftesbury and not far from the Wiltshire town of Mere. We believe that the property was built in the late 1960/early 70s and has been the very much loved and cherished home to our sellers for the last twenty four years. During their time of ownership, the bungalow has been very well
maintained and improved with the addition of a conservatory/dining room that enjoys a view over the rear garden, a room in the loft has been created to provide a hobby room and there is still the possibility to convert the loft space into accommodation, if required - subject to permissions. The windows have been replaced and a new condensing combination boiler was installed about five years ago. In addition, the kitchen unit doors have been replaced and the work surfaces changed to solid wood plus new shower room and cloakroom fixtures have been fitted as well as wardrobes to two of the bedrooms. This wonderful home must be viewed to appreciate both the inside and outside space plus the location, which is within walking distance to the Coppelridge Inn, which has a restaurant and the village shop which also has a tea room and post office.
