Property Details

2 2 1
A fabulous opportunity to purchase a detached bungalow offering flexible accommodation with two double bedrooms, sitting in generously sized grounds on the edge of the market town of Sturminster Newton. The property dates from the 1950s and has been the much loved home to our sellers for almost nine years. During this time they have transformed a once tired property into a stylish home, providing flexible room usage with an easy to use layout.

The bungalow is presented as comprehensively refurbished, with uPVC double glazed windows, a modern oil fired central heating system, all walls and ceilings re-plastered, re-wiring carried out, and wall and loft insulation installed. Attention to detail is clear throughout, with both the external aesthetics and internal finishes. Exterior styling sees the hardwood front door and garage doors matching, whilst the house, garage, and outbuilding have each been re-rendered and repainted to suit.

Inside, accommodation consists of a useful porch, welcoming entrance hall with storage cupboard, sitting room with open fireplace, dining room with feature fireplace, and a fully fitted kitchen featuring integrated appliances. There are two double bedrooms, the main with built in wardrobes and closets, and a bathroom equipped with a tasteful suite. Dark wooden flooring continues throughout the house. Each room boasts Farrow and Ball finishes, and coving is complimented by ceiling roses.

Outside, there is generous gated parking, good sized single garage and a useful outbuilding, both with light and power. The large rear garden has been beautifully landscaped, and benefits from a delightful summer house also with power.

Viewing is absolutely essential to fully appreciate what this beautiful home has to offer, as well as its location, being within walking distance of the town centre and enjoying countryside walks from its doorstep.
