Property Details

3 2 2
A beautifully presented, detached bungalow offering bright and spacious accommodation with three generously sized bedrooms, sitting in grounds of around 0.25 acres and enjoying some delightful views over the stunning Blackmore Vale countryside. The property occupies a lane side position in the small village of Yenston, which is just under a mile from Templecombe where there is a mainline train station, primary school and Co-op shop. We believe that the property was built in the early 1960s and has been a much loved and enjoyed home to our sellers. During this time they have maintained the property to an exceptionally high standard and carried out improvements, which have included replacement internal doors in a Shaker style, some new and a re-decoration throughout. The property has also benefitted by creating a more spacious and welcoming entrance hall with hard wearing vinyl flooring, new carpets have been laid and a new oil tank installed. The gardens have also had the advantage of a tidy up and the exterior of the bungalow has been re-painted. This fabulous home must be viewed to see how it will meet many potential buyers requirements and its lovely location, close to wonderful rural walks. An early viewing is strongly recommended to avoid missing out on the opportunity to be the next lucky owner.
