Property Details

2 3 2
A delightful end terraced character cottage with two double sized bedrooms, ideally situated in a peaceful no through lane in a sought after area, which is just a short stroll to the centre of this popular market town and close to some wonderful country and riverside walks. Sturminster Newton offers a range of independent shops and chain stores, doctor and dentist surgeries, schooling for all ages and a variety of entertainment venues. We believe that the original part of this charming cottage dates to over three hundred years old and has been the much cherished and enjoyed home to our seller for twelve years. During this time it has been exceedingly well maintained and was improved in the initial years with the addition of a useful porch, wonderful garden room, first floor bathroom and an extra bedroom with balcony. There is still scope to add another bedroom and separate the bathroom from the bedroom. This appealing cottage retains many character features, which include some lovely exposed timbers and a fireplace with wood burning stove and caters to modern day expectations with double glazing throughout and individually controlled electric heating. It is vital that the property be viewed to experience the ambiance both inside and outside, which will certainly hold one captive. An early viewing is recommended to avoid missing out on the chance to be the next lucky owner.
