Property Details

3 1 1
A wonderful opportunity to purchase a semi detached family home with three generously sized bedrooms, boasting views of Sutton Hill to the rear and located in a tranquil no through lane in the desirable and sought after village of Sutton Waldron. The village lies within a conservation area of the beautiful Blackmore Vale countryside - in between the towns of Shaftesbury (5 miles) and Blandford (8 miles) and enjoys a community spirit with many events hosted at the village hall. There is also a church in the village and nursery and primary schools in the nearby village of Fontmell Magna, where there is also a local shop. The village is well served by regular bus timetable from the A350.

The property was built in the mid 1990s and has been the very much loved and enjoyed home to our selling family for the last seven and half years. During this time the property has benefitted from being updated to include replacement uPVC double glazed windows, fitted with plantation style shutters, electric slimline panel heaters with WIFI connectivity and App control, new flooring with underfloor heating to the main reception area and bathroom. Stylish oak veneer doors have been fitted throughout and a new hot water cylinder installed. The bathroom suite has also been replaced by a stylish contemporary suite. There is also scope to develop with full planning permission granted (2/2018/0656/HOUSE) for a single storey extension to enlarge the kitchen/dining room into large family space - this has been started and offers the opportunity to continue with the extension or to create a large patio area. This lovely home must be viewed to truly appreciate what it has to offer as well as its delightful location.
