An attractive brick and stone detached character cottage offering spacious accommodation of around 1700 Sq. Ft (161 sq. m) with three double bedrooms, presented to the market with the advantage of no onward chain, boating some delightful rural views and situated in the heart of this desirable Dorset village. Stourton Caundlle lies in the Blackmore Vale and has a church and public house. Further facilities may be found at Stalbridge, which is about two miles away and Sherborne is only eight miles away with a mainline train station. We believe that the cottage was at one time two dwellings associated to the nearby farm in the early 1900s and has been a loved and enjoyed home to our sellers for about twelve years. During this time it has been well maintained and improved. The roof has been replaced, new flooring has been laid throughout and a double storey extension to the rear has created a fantastic open plan living space with family area and kitchen/breakfast room fitted with plenty of cupboards and quartz work surfaces plus bi-folding doors that open to a fabulous entertainment patio. Whilst on the first floor it allowed for a principal bedroom suite with dressing room and en-suite. The property offers a well laid out interior with flexible room usage and must be viewed to fully realise what lies behind the frontage. An early viewing is highly recommended so as not to miss out on the chance to be the next owner.
