Property Details

3 1 1
A delightful detached bungalow with three good sized bedrooms, sitting in good sized sunny grounds and ideally located just a short walk to the town centre and countryside walks, including The Trailway. Sturminster Newton offers a combination of town and country living with a range of independent shops and chain stores, doctor and dentist surgeries, schooling for all ages and a variety of entertainment venues. We believe that the bungalow dates to the 1930s and has been the very much cherished and enjoyed home to our sellers for nearly forty years. During this time it has been well cared for and benefits from uPVC double glazing and gas fired central heating from a recently replaced combination boiler. The property offers nicely proportioned and comfortable rooms with an easy to use lay that will suite many potential buyers. There is plenty of scope to enhance and update to one's own taste, as and when required. A viewing is essential to truly appreciate both the inside and outside space as well as the location and an early booking is strongly suggested to avoid missing the chance to own this home.
