Marnhull - £325,000 Sold Subject to Contract

Property Details

4 1 1
A beautifully presented and much improved semi detached family home with four generously sized bedrooms, large garden and views over the neighbouring countryside. The property is offered for sale with the advantage of no onward chain and is situated in the popular and well served village of Marnhull. The property is thought to have been built in the 1940s and has been a much loved home to generations of our selling family since 1965. During this time it has been extremely well maintained and improved and comes to the market in excellent order. The property has benefited from a ground floor re-configuration that has created a wonderful and bright double aspect sitting room with built in cupboards and fireplace with wood burning stove and the utility and cloakroom have been moved to a better location. In addition, the property has been updated in the last four years with replacement soft closing kitchen units and new bathroom suite as well as new flooring. The property also has gas fired central heating from a combination boiler and uPVC double glazing throughout. This lovely home provides good sized internal and external space that must be viewed to really appreciate what is on offer as well as its location, which is within walking distance to one of Marnhull's two primary schools, church and public house plus a local shop. Other facilities of the village include doctor's surgery with pharmacy, village hall and recreational grounds, hairdresser and further shop.
