New Street, Marnhull, Sturminster Newton - £350,000 Sold Subject to Contract

Property Details

3 2 2
A charming detached stone cottage with three bedrooms and presented to the market with the advantage of no onward chain. The property lies on the fringe of the popular and well served village of Marnhull, within a short walk of a local shop - catering for everyday needs, church and highly rated primary school. The doctor's surgery, village hall and centre are a little further on. We believe that the original part of the cottage - the central part - is about three hundred years old and that the left hand side use to be the stables. The right side is a more recent addition which has been done sympathetically to the original cottage. There are plans drawn up for a large extension, which will be subject to planning permission. The cottage offers contemporary living with uPVC double glazing and gas central heating from a combination yet retains its cosy feel with a stone fireplace, Bressumer beam and wood burner, window seat and further exposed ceiling beams and timbers. The property has well proportioned rooms that enjoy plenty of natural light and will certainly tick the box for many potential buyers. An early viewing is strongly recommended to avoid missing out on the chance to own this delightful home.
