The property enjoys a lovely location in the popular Dorset village of Bourton - set down a private drive used by just two homes and is within walking distance of local amenities. The village has public houses - The White Lion and The Bell & Crown, garage with convenience store, church and a primary school. The town of Gillingham offers further facilities and a mainline train station and is just four miles away.

The property is about fourteen years old and has been a very much cherished and enjoyed home of our sellers for the last twelve years. During this time it has been extremely well maintained and has benefitted from some general updating and improvements, which included adding an attractive Bath stone fireplace with wood burner creating a cosy ambiance and adding a touch of warmth and character to the sitting room. The separate dining room allows plenty of space for entertaining friends and family and with sliding doors into the kitchen/breakfast room there is scope to expand for those special occasions. This lovely home benefits from an easy to use layout with all rooms enjoying excellent natural light and has sustainable wood framed double glazing and LPG central heating with underfloor heating on the ground floor.

Outside, the attractive garden provides a tranquil retreat where you can enjoy the outdoors either relaxing or pottering about and there is plenty of parking for yourselves and any guests.

Viewing is essential to truly appreciate what this wonderful home has to offer as well as the splendid views and the location within the village.
