Property Details

4 3 2
Situated in one of the most sought after streets and within the conservation area of one of Dorset's smallest towns, is this substantial end of terraced Victorian home offering bright and flexible accommodation, arranged over two floors with four very good sized bedrooms and enjoying a large walled garden. We believe that the property dates to about 1875 and has been the much loved and enjoyed home to our selling family for the last three years. During this time they have improved the property with replacement kitchen units and work surfaces in solid wood, some new flooring has been laid and a redecoration throughout. In addition, the garden has been landscaped, a kitchen garden created and the old Victorian laundry house has been transformed into a bright work from home space/garden office that is fully insulated, benefiting from power, internet connection and a wood burning stove. This fabulous family home retains a host of character features, that include original sash windows, some deep window sills, original tiled flooring, exposed floorboards and original fireplaces. In addition, the property has excellent ceiling height. This lovely home must be viewed to really appreciate how it will satisfy many potential buyers needs as well as its easy to use layout and the location, which is just a short walk to open countryside and all the town's facilities. An early viewing is highly advisable to avoid missing out on the chance to own this beautiful home.
