A fabulous chance to purchase a substantial detached family home offering around 2,000 square feet ( 185.8 sq. m) of internal living space with four double sized bedrooms, sitting in grounds extending to 0.4 acres with views over the adjoining countryside and enjoying a village location. The original part of the property dates to the 1930's and was the gardener's cottage to the nearby Buckley House. Over the course of its lifetime this attractive property has been sympathetically extended to provide spacious accommodation, which satisfies modern day needs and provides a home for an existing or growing family. The property has been a very much loved and enjoyed family home to our sellers for the last twenty two years, during this time it has been extremely well cared for and greatly improved with the addition of a double garage with games room above, a conservatory has been added, which takes in a delightful view over the gardens and countryside beyond, new windows have been fitted and a new oil fired boiler was installed about three years ago. This striking home offers well presented accommodation with an easy to use layout and retains original fireplaces and a bespoke staircase. A viewing is imperative to truly realise, just what this home has to offer, both inside and outside, as well as the location.


The Property


The spacious accommodation consists of welcoming reception hall, dual aspect sitting room with views over the garden and adjoining countryside and enjoying an open fireplace, conservatory with rural and garden views and a versatile room currently used as a snug but also lends itself as a study or playroom. The large kitchen is fitted with plenty of cupboards, integrated dishwasher and larder fridge plus double eye level oven and gas (bottled) hob and opens to the dining area. There is a useful utility room, larder with slate shelf plus a cloakroom. On the first floor there is the family bathroom and four double bedrooms, two with original fireplaces, principal benefitting from an en-suite shower room and all enjoying some degree of rural views.


The property is approached from the road via a five bar timber gate, which opens to a gravelled drive with space to park about four cars and leads up to the garage. This has a remote controlled up and over door, fitted with light and power plus WC and games room on the first floor. The main body of the garden lies to the side of the property and is mostly laid to lawn, edged by well stocked shrub and flower beds plus a low hedge partly divides the garden in half. There is also a summerhouse with light and power plus a paved seating area to the side. The garden boasts a high degree of privacy, sunny aspect and adjoins fields.



The property is located in the small village of Manston, which is just three miles from the market town of Sturminster Newton. The village boasts a public house and village hall with Child Okeford about two miles away, which has an active community and many events centred around the village hall and community centre. Child Okeford also has a post office/stores, primary school, doctors surgery, two public houses and garden centre with an organic farm shop, art gallery and café. Sturminster Newton offers a further range of amenities and schooling for all ages.
