2 bedroom semi-detached house for sale

Salisbury Street, Marnhull, Sturminster Newton

Sold STC £165,000

Property Description

Full description

An appealing semi detached stone cottage situated on the fringe of the popular and well served village of Marnhull which offers day to day facilities including butchers, hairdresser, convenience stores, doctors' surgery with pharmacy and choice of public houses. We believe that the property dates to the 1830's and at one time the row of cottages were owned by the same family. This particular cottage has been home to our sellers for the last nine and half years during which time they have transformed it into a contemporary home without losing its traditional cottage feel. The property benefits from re-landscaped courtyard, new flooring throughout, re-decoration, new Upvc front door and some replacement double glazed windows and a combination gas fired central heating boiler. The property also has planning permission (September/October 2015) for the roof to be raised and extend into the loft space. A viewing is definitely a must to truly appreciate just how this home suits a variety of criteria - from full time main home, weekend retreat or lock up and leave UK base.

In brief, the ground floor accommodation consists of entrance hall with storage cupboards, combined sitting and dining room with inglenook fireplace and window seats, kitchen and bathroom. On the first floor there is a landing with study area and view over countryside to the side, and two double sized bedrooms both with window seats and some degree of countryside views, one boasting a lovely Victorian style fireplace. Outside there is an enclosed courtyard garden with enough space for patio furniture, pot plants and bins.
