A great opportunity to get a foot on the housing ladder with this two double bedroom semi detached home, which has been extended and re-configured to provide spacious living space and is offered for sale with the bonus of no onward chain. The property is situated close to the heart of the well served popular Somerset village of Milborne Port, which caters well for everyday essentials with a butchers, Co-op store, fish and chip shop, doctor's surgery and pharmacy. There is also a vets, primary school, high end restaurant and public houses. Just three miles away is the historic town of Sherborne where there is a mainline railway station.

The property has been owned by our sellers for the last twenty five years. During this time it has been a much loved and enjoyed home and in recent years a very successful investment for the rental market. It has benefitted from an extension to the rear, which has created a generously sized kitchen, which is fitted with contemporary units and some built in appliances. The foundations were future-proofed for further first floor development - subject to the necessary permissions. The property boasts not one, but two bathrooms - a rare find in properties of this size and ensues convenience and comfort for all residents and guests. With plenty of space for a dining table and chairs in the large reception room, entertaining family and friends will be easy and the open fire in the sitting area adds a touch of cosiness, perfect for after dinner coffee and those chilly evenings.

One of the highlights of this property is the large garden, a blank canvas waiting for your personal touch. Imagine summer barbecues, gardening projects, or simply relaxing in the sunshine - the possibilities are endless. There is also a shed with power provides extra storage space or could be transformed into a workshop for those with a creative flair.

Viewing is essential to appreciate what is on offer.
