Property Details

2 3 1
A fabulous opportunity to purchase a charming semi detached character home offering spacious accommodation, in excess of 1400 square feet ( 131 sq m), arranged over three floor and presented to the market with the advantage of no onward chain and enjoying some rural views. The property is situated close to the heart of this well served popular Dorset village, which boasts a thriving community with a variety of sports and social clubs, general store with post office, doctors surgery with pharmacy, primary school, convenience shop, public houses and church. There is also the village hall and grounds, which hosts many events. We believe that the property dates the 1870s when it was a Methodist church and has been the very much cherished home to our seller for over seventeen years. During this time it has been maintained and improved yet offers the next lucky owner scope to create a home to one's own taste. Many character features remain, which include windows with deep sills and stone mullions, fireplaces, picture rails and some wood panelled walls. To satisfy modern day expectation there is electric heating from two boilers to radiators and leased solar panels. This impressive property would make a great retreat from a hectic city life with its easy to maintain sunny garden or equally as a main residence for those looking for country living. A viewing is an absolute must to truly appreciate just what this special home can provide.
