Property Details

3 3 2
A charming detached stone cottage offering flexible accommodation with three double bedrooms, delightfully landscaped gardens and situated in a popular area of the well served village of Marnhull. The cottage is located just a short walk to one of the village pubs and shop, which also has a post office. The village hall and doctor's surgery with pharmacy are a little further on, as is the primary school and church. We believe that the cottage was originally two dwellings dating to the mid 1700s with a later addition in the 1800s and thought to have been home to the village carpenter. More recently a further sympathetic extension was added about ten years ago. This endearing cottage has been the much loved and enjoyed home to our sellers for the last five years. During this time it has been extremely well maintained and considerably improved with the installation of a new gas boiler, replacement flooring to the majority of the rooms, plus a new wood burner has been fitted, as well as replacing the suite in the bathroom. The cottage benefits from double glazed windows throughout, it has also had some electrical work carried out, a re-decoration in neutral colours and the gardens have benefitted from re-designing and planting. The cottage offers bright and well proportioned rooms that provide flexible usage on the ground floor with the potential to create an annexe for a dependent relative, work from home space or fourth bedroom. The cottage has a warm and comforting ambience and an early viewing is strongly recommended to avoid missing out on the chance to be the next lucky owner.
