Property Details

4 3 2
A substantial, recently refurbished detached family home with three/four double bedrooms enjoying a lane side position with countryside views is situated in the well served and popular village of Marnhull. This circa 1930s property has been thoughtfully renovated with great care transforming it into a stylish contemporary home, merging original character features with modern day expectations – retaining picture rails and high level panelled doors, adding beautiful fireplaces and oak flooring to all ground floor principle rooms. Catering for today’s needs there is uPVC double glazing, gas fired central heating from a pressurised system and a complete re-wire and re-plumb has taken place.

This fabulous home has benefited from a rear extension, which has created an ‘on-trend’ open plan kitchen dining space (approx. 34’) that is ideal for entertaining and family gatherings as well as the first floor master bedroom with en-suite shower room. The property must be viewed to truly appreciate the high quality finish, spacious accommodation and the location.
