Property Description

Full description

A very much cherished detached family home situated in a popular residential area of Dorset's smallest town and ideally positioned close to beautiful countryside walks, the nature reserve, children's adventure playground as well as within walking distance to the primary school, shops, dentists and doctors. We believe that the property was built in the late 1960's/early 1970's and has been a place where our sellers have happily raised their family over the last thirty one years. The property offers comfortable, well arranged accommodation flooded with plenty of natural light and is presented to the market with the advantage of no onward chain and in pristine condition. The property has recently been redecorated in neutral colours, some new carpeting laid and benefits from replacement kitchen units, installed just about a one year ago. In addition, the property boasts Upvc double glazing throughout and gas fired central heating from a combination boiler. An early viewing is strongly recommended to avoid missing out on this fabulous family home.

In brief, the ground floor accommodation consists of bright and inviting entrance hall, sitting room with feature fireplace and full height window, dining room and kitchen with built in oven and hob. In addition there is a large conservatory with outlook over the garden. On the first floor there is the family bathroom and three good sized bedrooms. Outside, the driveway provides parking for two cars, good sized single garage with light and power and attached workshop, sturdy timber shed and of particular delight is the attractively laid out rear garden which enjoys a sunny and private aspect.
