A rare opportunity to purchase a traditional semi detached family home with three generously sized bedrooms, sitting in good sized grounds and enjoying a quiet lane side position, backing onto open countryside. The property is situated in the small and pretty village of Fifehead Magdalen, which lies in the beautiful Blackmore Vale and boasts a 14th Century church with the nearest facilities about a mile away in Marnhull. Marnhull has a post office, two general stores, chemist and doctors surgery plus public houses and two primary schools. The market town of Shaftesbury is about 5 miles away where further facilities can be found, Gillingham is only 3 miles away where there is a mainline train station. The village also falls in the Gillingham school catchment area. The property dates to the late 1940s and has been a very much cherished and enjoyed home of our seller for the last ten years. During this time it has been exceedingly well maintained and in the last three years has benefitted from an updated electrical consumer unit and new LPG combination central heating boiler. This lovely home provides a well laid out interior with good sized rooms that offer comfortable accommodation with the option to change to one's own taste, as and when required. There is also the potential to further develop and extend the accommodation to the side and upwards. The property has to be viewed to truly appreciate what it has to offer, both for the inside and exterior space as well as the location.
