Property Details

4 3 2
A bright and generously sized detached family home with four double bedrooms plus a one bedroom annexe and boasting spectacular far reaching views over the Blackmore Vale countryside. The property enjoys a quiet location within the conservation area of one of Dorset's smallest towns, opposite the park and within easy reach of all the town's amenities, which include an award winning supermarket, family run butchers, post office, dentist surgery and a well rated primary school. There is also a community run library and various takeaway restaurants. The property was built in the 1950's for the town's pharmacist and has been the very much cherished and enjoyed home to our sellers for the last seven years. During this time it has been totally refurbished and improved with the addition of a fabulous garden room and the removal of some of the ground floor walls, which has created a wonderful flowing, easy to use layout, allowing the reception rooms to link seamlessly together. During the renovations the original parquet flooring was uncovered in some of the rooms and has been restored. The property also benefits from uPVC double glazing with some windows fitted with plantation style shutters and gas fired central heating. The property offers great internal space for an existing or growing family with the option to house a relative needing some support or perhaps offering the chance for an income - rental or AirBnB (subject to permissions). Viewing is essential to really see how this home would satisfy many requirements.
