Property Details

4 2 2
A great opportunity to purchase a beautifully presented detached family home with four double bedrooms and offering a bright and spacious interior. The property is located in Kingston, on the edge of the large Dorset village of Hazelbury Bryan and enjoys delightful views over the Blackmore Vale countryside. The village enjoys a good community spirit and benefits from a village hall, shop that caters for everyday needs, public house, recreational ground and primary school. Sturminster Newton has further facilities with supermarket, shops, doctors surgery and so forth. Sherborne with a mainline train station is about 10 miles away. We believe that the property was built in the early 1990s as the show home for this small development and has been the very much loved and enjoyed home to our sellers for the last ten years. During this time it has been extremely well maintained and has benefitted from the addition of a useful porch/boot room, the family bathroom has been extended to offer a full suite, the kitchen has also been replaced and new oak flooring has been laid to some of the ground floor rooms. Outside, the garden has benefitted from some landscaping and a good sized paved seating area provides an ideal alfresco dining and entertaining space. There is also permission granted to extend the kitchen (P/HOU/2021/03536). The property must be viewed to really appreciate both the inside and outside space as well as the location.
