The Village: 
Marnhull is one of the largest villages in England and has a thriving community life with a primary school, three churches, two inns and doctors' surgery and dispensary.  There are numerous clubs and societies which are based in the village and the nearby town of Sturminster Newton also boasts an active community centre providing a range of cultural and educational facilities.  Marnhull is celebrated in Thomas Hardy’s Tess of the D’Urbevilles as Marlot and the views from the top of the garden of Wren Cottage will leave you in no doubt as to why the Blackmore Vale was so close to his heart. 

The Property: 
This much loved property comes to the market for the first time in 30 years.  Built in the Victorian era it has Marnhull stone elevations under a tiled roof. Originally one dwelling, history tells us that the property was left to two brothers who divided it into 2 dwellings.  It is located at the end of a private driveway which serves the two cottages and enjoys wonderfully landscaped Gardens and Grounds of approximately 0.75 acres.  On entering the property there is a generous parking and turning area in front of the Double Garage and Car Port as well as a number of useful outbuildings.  The cottage has been extended by the current owners whose growing family, which now includes grandchildren, have enjoyed the secluded location of the property and wonderful and varied nature of the surrounding gardens.  

Stepping into the cottage from the rear garden you enter a wonderfully light and spacious Reception Room which is open plan to the Kitchen with its array of bespoke units, rebuilt Rayburn together with an impressive Range Style Cooker and Marnhull stone flooring.  The Dining Room off has tongue and groove panelling to dado rail, an impressive open fireplace with exposed Marnhull stone surround painted mantle and inset multi fuel stove.  This room has solid German oak flooring and a window to the front elevation affording views over the landscaped gardens.  

The spacious Sitting Room has a double glazed door that opens on to the garden together with glazed side panels.  This room also has a Marnhull stone fire surround with inset coal effect gas fire.  There is exposed beamwork in this room, wall lights and painted panelling to a dado rail.  
Versatile accommodation is offered in the form of a Ground Floor Study/Bedroom 5, which has a built in wardrobe/storage cupboard together with Ensuite Shower Room.  In fact storage throughout the house and certainly in the Bedrooms has been well thought out.  There  is a Family Bathroom on the First Floor and potential to create further bedrooms in the roof space subject to the necessary consents.  
The Gardens and Grounds of approximately 0.75 acres are an absolute delight with sweeping areas of lawn, covered arbours for dining and an area of grass and woodland.  The planting throughout the garden includes fruit and specimen trees, including Quince and Bay, Clematis and Roses clad arbours and trellising whilst shrubs, perennial and herbaceous plants ensure an abundance of colour and interest throughout the seasons.  

This is a much loved family home, presented in immaculate order throughout and offering potential for further development subject to the necessary consents.
