A great opportunity to purchase an exceptionally well proportioned and surprisingly spacious semi detached home offering around 771 sq ft (71 sq m) of internal living space with two double bedrooms, no onward chain and is ideally located just a few strides to the centre of the town. Sturminster Newton benefits from a selection of individual shops and chain stores, doctor and dentist surgeries and a range of entertainment facilities, as well as schooling for all ages. The property is also within walking distance to some fabulous river and country side walks.
