Fancy the Good Life in a lovely rural Dorset village? This extended, lovely, detached bungalow in a quiet cul-de-sac on a sizeable plot with plans already in place for an annexe can give you all that and more. Viewing is strongly recommended to appreciate this home in full.

Internally the home in brief comprises, entrance hall with WC to the left and living room to the right. The extended kitchen diner is off the living room and the extended study/dining area is off the kitchen. The other side of the entrance hall leads to the 3 bedrooms and the family bathroom.

At the front of the home is a long drive leading to the garage and workshop. A path to the side of the garage leads to the rear. To the side of the drive is a large triangular shaped area laid to gravel. The front of the home will accommodate 6 cars. There is another path that allows access to the rear of the home.

The rear of the home is well hedged and not overlooked, it's nice and private. Patio runs the length of the property and adjoins the lawn. There are 2 areas of lawn segregated by hedge, ideal for creating different areas for different needs. At one point the current owners used the rear lawn as a small holding. It's perfect for putting the kids outside toys in and giving them their own area. It could also be used as a fruit and veg patch or to create a water garden....the choice is yours.

There are 2 sheds and a greenhouse in the garden. There is also a craftsman built wooden lean to adjoining the house that measures 4 meters by 2 meters. This is ideal for storage but how about putting your hot tub in here?

Plans have been drawn up with 2 option and can be seen in the photos of the home that convert the garage and workshop into an annexe with its own kitchen, shower room and living space with an adjoining door to the existing dining room and a door to the rear garden. One option allows for the rear to be extended and aligned with the study and the kitchen which allows for the annexe to have separate living and sleeping space as opposed to a Studio design. Perfect for friends and family staying over, independent teenagers or relatives. Or could it be a revenue stream? Surely there would be lots of holiday makers keen to stop in such an idyllic location.
