Bishops Caundle, SHERBORNE - £390,000 Sold Subject to Contract

Property Details

3 2 2
An appealing detached stone cottage offering flexible room usage with three/four double bedrooms, boasting delightful countryside views from the front and back and situated in the desirable village of Bishops Caundle, which lies six miles in between Sherborne and Sturminster Newton. The village boasts a village shop, garage, primary school, public house and an ancient church dating back to the 14th Century. We believe that the property dates to the 1800s and has been the very much loved and enjoyed home to our seller for the last eight years. During this time it has benefited from a re-configuration on the first floor to create a main bedroom with en-suite shower room, the bathroom has been fitted with a new stylish suite and solid wood flooring has been laid in the two reception rooms. In addition, a good-sized garden room has been installed at the end of the garden and overlooks the neighbouring fields. The property presents the opportunity to mark with one's own taste and is in need of some finishing touches. This lovely home also benefits from uPVC double glazing with an attractive Georgian bar and oil fired central heating via radiators. The property provides an easy to use layout with well proportioned accommodation that will certainly meet the needs of many potential buyers. A viewing is strongly recommended to truly appreciate what this home has to offer.

Parking and Garden

The property is approached from the road onto a long drive with space to park three cars with potential to park an additional car in front of the cottage. The frontage is shielded from the road by a mature hedge. A gate to one side of the house opens to a path where the oil tank is situated and leads to the rear garden. This is in need of a little bit of management and adjoins fields.
