Property Details

Morton New are delighted to present to the market this captivating semi detached cottage with three good sized bedrooms, set in a large garden and lying in the conservation area of one of Dorset's smallest towns. The property is within a short walk to the town centre where there is an award winning supermarket, family run butchers, post office, public house and takeaway shops. There is also a community run library, well rated primary school and dentist - all within easy reach. We believe that the property was built in the 1860s of natural stone under a triple gabled roof and boasts some fabulous far reaching views over the Blackmore Vale countryside. It has been the very much loved and enjoyed family home to our seller for around fifty four years. During this time it has been well maintained and improved by a ground floor reconfiguration plus an extension to the rear and the addition of a double tandem garage at the end of the garden. The property benefits from uPVC double glazing, economy 7 electric heating and the old piggery in the garden provides addition storage. This delightful home offers comfortable, well proportioned and arranged accommodation, which will certainly meet the approval of many potential buyers. A viewing is absolutely essential to really appreciate what is on offer.
