Property Details

3 2 1
A beautifully presented and extremely well maintained, spacious detached bungalow with three good sized bedrooms and enjoying a peaceful location in a small cul de sac of similar properties. The bungalow is situated in the small village of Todber, which lies in the heart of the wonderful Blackmore Vale countryside and boasts delightful views of Duncliffe Woods and Melbury Hill in the distance. The village itself sits between Shaftesbury and Sturminster Newton - both about five miles away. For day to day facilities, the well served village of Marnhull is one and half miles away and the property also falls within the catchment area for the highly rated Gillingham School. The property was built in the 1970s and has been a very much cherished and enjoyed home to our sellers for over ten years. During this time it has been well cared for and improved by the addition of a conservatory, the shower room has been remodelled and recently the garage doors have been replaced. In addition, the gardens have been attractively landscaped. The property also benefits from oil fired central heating via radiators and uPVC double glazing throughout.
