The Village: 
Marnhull is one of the largest villages in England and has a thriving community life with a primary school, three churches, an inn, 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 surrounding the village will leave you in no doubt as to why the Blackmore Vale was so close to his heart. 

The Property: 
Little is known of the of the cottages long history other than it is thought to have originally been a farm workers cottage built at the turn of the century.  Originally two up and two down it now benefits from more modern extensions to the side and rear elevations.  Our clients have since purchasing the property almost 13 years ago further updated the accommodation which is now immaculately presented throughout.  The cottage has rendered elevations under a tiled roof with later additions also being rendered and having tiled rooves.  A Conservatory was added by the previous owners which afford glorious views over the landscaped gardens and countryside beyond.  
The ground floor cloakroom has been updated and modernised with a very spacious Shower Cubicle replacing the Bath and modern fittings and storage making this a very useful room located close to the Ground Floor Master Bedroom which has a good range of Fitted Wardrobes.  On the First Floor the main Double Bedroom has fitted wardrobes, storage cupboards and a recessed area with wash hand basin as well as 2 further Bedrooms.   A well-appointed Shower Room with fully tiled shower cubicle, wash hand basin and low level w.c. with concealed cistern has been added to this floor to make it self contained for guests and family.    

The 2 main Reception Rooms on the Ground Floor are dual aspect and have exposed beamwork, with the cosier of the two having an open fireplace with inset Living Flame Gas Woodburner, window seats and Dining Area.  The Conservatory to the rear of the Cottage offers ease of access to the Kitchen and has been used as a Breakfast/Dining Room, offering as it does wonderful views of the garden and countryside beyond.  
Our clients replaced the rather dilapidated pre-fabricated Double Garage with a purpose built timber framed garage and there is ample parking on the gravelled driveway to the front and side of this building.  

Landscaped gardens and grounds surround the property and afford glorious and far reaching views of the surrounding countryside.
