Property Details

3 2 1
A delightful semi detached family home with three generously sized bedrooms, boasting a tucked away and quiet location at the top of a cul de sac in a popular residential area on the edge of the historic hilltop town of Shaftesbury. The property lies close to countryside and open space and is within easy reach of all the town's facilities. The property is nearing ten years old and has been the very much cherished and enjoyed home to our sellers for the last eight and half years. During this time the property has been well maintained and improved wit the addition of a conservatory, the kitchen units and bathroom suites have been updated as well as new flooring laid to the ground floor rooms and bathroom. The property was built by Persimmon homes under the Government's sustainable scheme and benefits from wood frame double glazing with many of the windows boasting a swivel facility for easy maintenance, dual zone gas fired central heating, 'AirVac' for noise reduction and fresh air circulation and had direct fibre optic broadband, which has a speed in excess of 100Mb - ideal for those working from home and those using a lot of internet based technology. This lovely home must be viewed to truly appreciate the layout and size of the accommodation and how easily it will meet many potential buyers' needs. An early viewing is strongly recommended to avoid missing out on the chance to own this home.
