Stourton Caundle, Sturminster Newton - £450,000 Sold Subject to Contract

Property Details

3 1 1
An attractive detached bungalow offering flexible accommodation with three double bedrooms, backing onto fields and enjoying a slightly elevated position in the desirable small village of Stourton Caundle. The village lies in the Blackmore Vale and boasts a church and public house. Further facilities may be found at Stalbridge, which is about two miles away. The bungalow is believed to date to the late 1920s and has been a very much cherished and enjoyed home to our sellers for the last twenty five years. During this time it has been extremely well maintained and benefits from uPVC double glazing throughout with a leaded bar, cavity wall insulation and economy 7 electric heating. The property has also been extended to the rear and provides well proportioned bright accommodation with the potential to develop upwards, if desired. The bungalow sits in beautifully landscaped gardens with a westerly rear aspect. A viewing is absolutely vital to really appreciate just what this lovely home has to offer, not just the inside space but also the outdoor areas and its location in the village.
