Property Details

3 2 2
First time to the market since being built in 1968! An opportunity to purchase a well proportioned, extended semi detached family home with three good-sized bedrooms, presented to the market with no onward chain and enjoying a tucked away position at the top of a cul de sac in this sought-after village. Child Okeford is one of Dorset's most desirable villages with an active community. There are various sports clubs, social activities and a post office/stores, primary school, doctors surgery, two public houses and garden centre with an organic farm shop, art gallery and cafe. The property has been a very much cherished and enjoyed family home, which has been maintained and improved over the years. There is an extension to the side, which we are told has foundations deep enough for a first floor addition and offers flexible usage providing a ground floor bedroom with en-suite shower room for a dependent relative. The gas fired boiler was replaced in January 2021 and is located in the loft. The property also benefits from double glazing and some secondary glazing. This lovely home has the option to further enhance and mark it to one's own taste. A viewing is absolutely vital to truly appreciate what this home has to offer and how easily it will meet many potential buyers' needs.
