A fantastic chance to purchase a spacious semi detached cottage with four double bedrooms, presented to the market with the advantage of no onward chain and boasting a peaceful location towards the end of a no through lane, surrounded by the beautiful Blackmore Vale countryside. The property is situated in the small hamlet of Nyland, which lies off the A30 on the Somerset/Dorset border in between the historic towns of Shaftesbury and Sherborne. The nearest facilities are about 3 miles away in West Stour where there is a public house, petrol station and Spar shop. There is a primary school 3.5 miles away in Henstridge and main line train stations may be found at Templecombe (4.5 miles) and Gillingham (6.5miles), which also has schooling for all ages. The property is thought to date to the 1880s with the name relating to one of Queen Vitoria's jubilees and used as a farmworkers cottage. It has been a loved and enjoyed home to our sellers for the last eighteen years. During this time the property has been extremely well maintained and improved with an extension to the rear, which added a garage and double aspect double bedroom. The property has also benefitted from a re-configuration that created a wonderful open plan kitchen, dining and family room with access out to the garden and taking in wonderful far reaching views. The property provides a great opportunity to raise a family in a rural but not isolated position with little passing traffic and for those wishing to work from home there is Wessex internet fibre. Viewing is essential to appreciate the well proportioned room sizes, layout and location.
