Property Details

4 4 2
A rare chance to purchase a unique and delightful detached home offering four double sized bedrooms and set in a tranquil no through lane, backing onto paddocks, in the desirable and sought after Dorset village of Shroton. The village has an excellent community spirit and a popular public house - The Cricketers, a well supported church and award winning Meggy Moos farm shop selling local produce. Further facilities are available at Iwerne Minster a five minute drive or a twenty minute or so walk away over country fields. There is also buses to Clayesmore Preparatory School in Iwerne Minster, the primary school at Fontmell Magna and the senior school at Shaftesbury.
The property was built in the 1970s and has been a very much loved and enjoyed home to our selling family for about fifteen years. During this time it has been sympathetically extended and re-configured to provide a contemporary home with nearly 2000 sq. ft. of space that will certainly tick the box for many potential buyers. The property has been updated to an extremely high standard with Oak veneered doors throughout, Quartz work surfaces, Quooker tap, water softener and chilled filtered drinking water, plus a variety of styles of quality flooring as well as external landscaping and the addition of a barbecue lodge for entertaining. The property also benefits from cavity wall insulation, uPVC double glazing and oil fired central heating plus some electric underfloor heating. In addition, there are wholly owned solar panels providing a good annual income. A viewing is an absolute must to really appreciate this very special home and what it can offer the next lucky owner.
