A most wonderful chance to purchase a substantial four double bedroom detached family home presented to the market with the advantage of no onward chain, boasting some delightful countryside views in the distance and enjoying a lane side position within easy reach of the village's amenities. The property is situated in the well served and popular Dorset village of Marnhull and is within walking distance to a local shop with post office, church, primary school and a little further on is The Crown Inn. The doctors' surgery, pharmacy and village hall are a little way on as is the village centre where there is another shop with post office and public house. The property dates to the 1930s and has been a very much loved and enjoyed family home for over twenty six years. During this time it has been extremely well maintained and benefits from a rear extension, carried out about nine years ago, to provide on trend open plan living space, which is certainly the centre of the home with plenty of space for entertaining family and friends - where memories are created. The property has also been extended to the side providing an additional multi purpose reception room with bedroom above that benefits from an en-suite bathroom and would make a fantastic teenager's den. Outside, there is plenty of space for children and pets to let off steam in the safety of an enclosed large garden. Viewing is essential to truly experience this fabulous well proportioned home and its environment.
