Property Details

6 2 2
An extended semi detached family home offering a chance to refurbish and reconfigure, benefiting from flexible accommodation with five generously sized bedrooms, a one bedroom self contained annexe and presented to the market with the advantage of no onward chain. The property is situated in the desirable and sought after village of Child Okeford, which boasts an active community with many events centred around the village hall and community centre. There is a post office/stores, primary school, doctors surgery, two public houses and garden centre with an organic farm shop, art gallery and cafe. We believe that the property was built in the 1930s and has been within the same family since the 1960s. During this time it has been extended to the side to provide accommodation for a dependent relative plus additional bedrooms and is now in need of some general maintenance and refurbishment. The well proportioned accommodation boasts the basics with gas fired central heating (not tested) and uPVC double glazing with the potential to re-configure by incorporating the annexe into the main house, if required and scope to create an additional bathroom or an en-suite. The property must be viewed to truly appreciate what it has to offer and how it would lend itself to many potential buyers' needs.
