The Village: 
Mappowder is a parish of approximately 2,000 acres and historically was part of the Royal Forest.  The name Mappowder is derived from the Anglo Saxon word Mapuldor, which means Maple Tree and in 1066 the village was referred to as Mapledre in the Doomesday Book.  Located on the edge of the Blackmore Vale the village comprises of a collection of stone built cottages and charming 15th Century Church  of St Peter and St Paul.  The surrounding countryside was described by Thomas Hardy in Tess of the D'Urbervilles as the "Vale of the Little Dairies" and far reaching views of the surrounding countryside can be enjoyed just a short distance from the property, which is located on the edge of the Conservation Area of the village.
     
The Property: 
The original bungalow was built in the early 1970's with Planning Permission granted in 2000 for the replacement of the existing roof structure and creation of a chalet bungalow complete with new clay tiles, and a Detached Garage to compliment the property.   This extension enabled the creation of a First Floor Master Bedroom Suite with impressive Ensuite Bath and Shower Room together with a further Double Bedroom across the landing.  Care has been taken throughout the modernisation and extension of the property to ensure that a quality finish has been achieved.  The triple aspect Sitting Room has doors that open out onto the terrace and landscaped rear gardens and there is an open fireplace with inset woodburning stove for cosy winter evenings in.  There is a well fitted Kitchen/Breakfast Room together with 2nd Sitting Room or Dining Room which offers views over the gardens to the rear.  The versatility of the accommodation means that it could easily provide annexe accommodation for an elderly relative as the two Ground Floor Bedrooms have ease of access to the Family Bathroom.  Externally the property has reconstituted stone elevations under a tiled roof.  
Outside there is ample off road parking for a number of cars and the space could easily accommodate a boat, caravan or mobile home.  The Garage offers storage space as well as space for a classic car, if required.  The gardens to the rear of the property have afforded the family space for everything, chickens, productive vegetable beds, fruit cages, orchard, play space for the children/grandchildren and a good sized area of lawn.  The whole backs onto open fields and there are views of the village Church in the distance.            
The property benefits from quality Double Glazing of high specification throughout and oil fired central heating.    

Communication: 
There are mainline train service to London Waterloo and the West Country approximately 16 miles away in Yeovil and Gillingham.  London can be reached by car via the A303/M3 link.  There are also good road links to the larger conurbations of Poole, Bournemouth and the Jurassic coastline. The county towns of Sherborne, Dorchester, Blandford, Shaftesbury and Gillingham are also within driving distance.  
 
Leisure: 
Situated in glorious unspoilt countryside at the southern edge of the Blackmore Vale and beneath Bulbarrow, walking,  riding and cycling are just some of the activities enjoyed by the locals.  The nearest town is Sturminster Newton, a charming market town, which in recent times has had its more traditional high street augmented by a new community centre, shopping facilities and doctors' surgery.    Dorchester, Sherborne, Yeovil and Blandford  offer a wide range of national and local shopping and cultural facilities.
