Property Details

4 2 1
A fantastic chance to purchase a beautifully presented and recently updated semi detached family home with four generously sized bedrooms, sitting in a large plot and enjoying views over countryside and Hambledon Hill. The property is located in the popular village of Manston, which lies about three miles from the market town of Sturminster Newton. We believe that the property dates to the mid 1920s and has been the very much loved and enjoyed home to our sellers for nearly five years. During this time it has undergone a programme of renovation that included re-plastering of walls and ceilings, coving has been fitted, new uPVC double glazed windows have been installed as well as new radiators and replacement bathroom suite. There is potential to further develop the property, either by going upwards into the loft space or sideways, if required. This wonderful, comfortable home offers a well laid out interior with good sized, bright rooms that will certainly get the nod of approval from many buyers and will satisfy many requirements. An early viewing is highly recommended to fully appreciate the property itself and its location in the village. Manston boasts a public house and village hall with Child Okeford about two miles away, which has a post office/stores, primary school, doctors surgery, two public houses and garden centre with an organic farm shop, art gallery and cafe.
