Sitting in grounds extending to around two acres is this wonderful detached family home offering over 1600 sq. ft (149 sq. m) of living space with four generously sized bedrooms and boasting fabulous rural views over the Blackmore Vale countryside. Located in a small hamlet half way between the market town of Sturminster Newton and the popular village of Hazelbury Bryan, the property enjoys a tranquil setting in a rural but not isolated position that benefits from the best of both worlds. The town offers a full range of facilities, whilst Hazelbury Bryan has a lively community with local events taking place around the area and also in the village hall. There is also a public house, park and primary school plus a shop for everyday essentials.

This delightful home dates to 1875 - this is engraved into the sitting room fireplace beam - thought to have been two properties, which have historically been combined and extended in to one comfortable residence that is ideal for a growing or existing family seeking both internal and external space. Over the last few years the property has benefitted from some modernisation, which included new stylish and contemporary kitchen units and quartz work surfaces by 'Wren Kitchens', extending the en-suite into a more user friendly room and new flooring laid to some of the rooms. The property presents a whole host of exciting opportunities - should the stables and paddock not be required, there is the chance of providing an income or if you dream of self-sufficiency by keeping animals and/or growing your own produce, this home offers the space and freedom for you to explore these possibilities.

This property is more than just a house; it's a lifestyle and home waiting to be embraced - your own slice of Dorset, where there is place for solitude and tranquillity and being one with nature. Don't miss the chance being inspired by this home - book a viewing now.
