A fabulous semi detached family home presented to the market with no onward chain, three generously sized bedrooms, boasting a large garden and some countryside views. The property is situated in a popular residential area, where town and country start to merge, yet within easy walking distance of the town centre and all amenities. The property is located in the market town of Sturminster Newton, which still has a Monday market, as well as catering for everyday needs with a range of independent shops and chain stores, doctor and dentist surgeries, schooling for all ages plus a variety of entertainment venues. The property is ideally placed for riverside and country walks and has access to the Trailway close by.

The property was built in the early 1950s - with only one previous owner in its early days - it has been the much loved and enjoyed family home for the last 53 years. Once inside, the property offers a welcoming warmth from its comfortable accommodation, which has the option to add one's own taste and style, as and when. The property sits in very good sized grounds with almost a secret back garden that hides behind the shed and provides the chance to landscaped to one's own design. There is also the possibility of creating parking space, subject to the necessary permissions. The house is located in an area where there is a good community and neighbourly spirit and the playing fields nearby. The property has recently been re-rendered with a guarantee, ensuring a solid and well-maintained structure.

Don't miss this opportunity to own this lovely house with possibilities for customisation and improvement to make it your own needs. A viewing must take place to really appreciate both the internal and external space as well as the location.

The Property



Ground Floor
The property is approached from the pavement via a wrought iron gate that opens to a path leading to the front door. This opens into a useful porch with the original 1950s door, opening to the hall. From here stairs rise to the first floor and a door opens into a good sized L shaped sitting room with two windows overlooking the front garden and plenty of space for a dining table and chairs. There are built in shelves and cupboards plus a gas fire with back boiler for the central heating and hot water. A door from the sitting room opens into the a nicely proportioned kitchen/breakfast room with outlook to the rear. It is fitted with a range of modern, Shaker style soft closing units consisting of floor and eye level cupboards plus separate drawer unit. There is plenty of wood effect work surfaces - including a breakfast bar - with laminate work surfaces and one and half bowl stainless steel sink and drainer with swan neck mixer tap. The fridge, washing machine and dishwasher are included in the sale plus the built in electric oven and ceramic hob. There is also the airing cupboard housing the hot water cylinder and an understairs storage cupboard plus door opening to the rear of the house.

First Floor
Stairs rise and curve up to the galleried landing with window to the rear taking in a view of the woods at Hinton St Mary. There is a fitted storage cupboard with shelves and access to the boarded loft space with drop down ladder and fitted with light and power point. There are three very good sized bedrooms, all with some degree of rural outlook. The bathroom is fitted with a WC, bath and wall mounted wash hand basin.


The good sized front garden is laid to lawn and enclosed by mature hedgerow. A picket fence to the side of the house divides the garden from the rear of the property where there is a range of outbuildings. These include a gardener's WC (1.80 m x 0.99 m/5'11'' x 3'3'') plus an attached store (1.12 m x 0.99 m/3'8'' x 3'3'') and a separate purpose built shed with light and power (2.79 m x 2.03 m/9'2'' x 6'8''). Behind the shed is a further part of the garden, which offers excellent space and a blank canvas for one's own landscaping design - currently needs some management. There is currently no parking with the property but subject to the necessary permissions, there may be the opportunity to create parking at the front of the house.
