Property Details

3 1 2
Boasting a quiet position, set in about a third of an acre is this delightful detached chalet style bungalow with three double bedrooms, offering in excess of 1700 square feet (159 sq.m) of inside space and presented for sale with no onward chain. The property is located within a short level walk to the high street of one of Dorset's smallest towns, which caters well for everyday needs. There is an award winning supermarket, family run butchers, dentist surgery and community run library. There is also a public house, various takeaways and a highly rated primary school. The property is also within easy reach to some lovely countryside walk. We believe that the chalet dates to the 1960s and has been a much cherished family home. The property provides comfortable living accommodation with the scope to enhance and mark to ones' own taste, as and when required. This well laid out home benefits from uPVC double glazing, gas fired central heating from a combination boiler and has a central vacuuming system as well as modern soft closing kitchen units, which were installed about five years ago. A viewing is absolutely essential to fully appreciate both the inside and outside space as well as the position of the property and we suggest an early viewing so as to avoid missing out on the chance to own this wonderful home.
