Blandford St. Mary, Blandford Forum - £275,000 Sold Subject to Contract

Property Details

2 2 1
A wonderful chance to buy a grade II listed terraced home with two double bedrooms, lying in the heart of the attractive village of Blandford St Mary overlooking a green and close to the gates to Bryanston School. The village is situated on the bank of the river Stour opposite the larger town of Blandford Forum. The village has a primary school, Tesco superstore and a traditional village pub. This delightful cottage dates to the early 19th century and is believed to have been a seed merchants cottage. It has been a very much loved and enjoyed home to our seller for about five years, during this time it has been well maintained. The cottage retains original features that include panelled front door with transom light, some sash and pane glass cottage windows, picture rails, fireplace and flagstone floors plus plenty of exposed timbers. To cater for everyday needs the cottage has gas fired central heating via radiators from a combination boiler. Unusually, the cottage benefits from garage and parking. An early viewing is strongly recommended to truly appreciate this home and how it would lend itself to many potential buyers needs and would especially be a great weekend bolt hole to visit children in Bryanston or as a retreat.
