Property Details

3 2 1
A well maintained and improved mid terraced home offering bright and roomy accommodation with three generously sized bedrooms, boasting views of Hambledon and Preston Hill and situated in the desirable and sought after Dorset village of Shroton. The village has an excellent community spirit and a popular public house - The Cricketers, a well supported church and award winning Meggy Moos farm shop selling local produce. Further facilities are available at Iwerne Minster a five minute drive or a twenty minute or so walk away over country fields. There is also buses to Clayesmore Preparatory School in Iwerne Minster, the primary school at Fontmell Magna and the senior school at Shaftesbury. We believe that the property was built in the 1970s and has been the very much cherished and enjoyed home to our sellers for about sixteen years. During this time the property has been exceptionally well maintained and updated with replacement bathroom suite, new front and rear doors have been fitted as well as a new bay window to the front plus a redecoration, new fireplace, which has the potential for a real fire and a stylish German kitchen by 'Solstice' was installed about 6 years ago. In addition, the property also benefits from oil fired central heating and uPVC double glazing with some windows having an attractive Georgian style bar. This lovely home has to be viewed to truly appreciate the well proportioned interior, the views as well as the village itself. An early viewing is highly recommended to avoid missing out on the chance to own this home.
