An appealing semi detached chalet style home offering flexible accommodation with two/three double sized bedrooms and enjoying a quiet cul de sac location with some delightful views over the Blackmore Vale countryside. The property is located in a popular residential area on the edge Marnhull - one of Dorset's largest villages and is within an easy walk to amenities which include the primary school, public house, doctors' surgery and a little further on to the village hall and shops. We believe that the property dates to the late 1970s/early 1980s and has been a much loved and enjoyed home to our sellers for the last six years. During this time it has been exceptionally well cared for and improved with new double doors from the sitting room to the decked area, some internal doors have been replaced and a central island in the kitchen has been installed. In addition, most of the flooring is nearly new, the fireplace has been renewed and extra wardrobes have been added in bedroom one. The property also benefits from uPVC double glazing and gas central heating from a combination boiler. The lovely home offers good sized and light accommodation with flexible room usage which will suit a great many potential buyers requirements and a viewing is highly advisable to truly appreciate this wonderful home. The vendors have found a property to purchase, which will be the end of the chain.
