The village has good road access to the County Town of Dorchester with its mainline rail service to London Waterloo and a variety of amenities including the new Brewery Square.

Description - Townsend Barn is, an attached converted barn which is of stone elevations beneath a slate roof. The conversion was done in the 1980s and there have been later extensions. The property offers deceptively spacious and flexible accommodation with an abundance of character as would be expected from a building of this nature. The accommodation comprises entrance hall, large reception room with a vaulted double height ceiling with two roof lights and fireplace housing a log burner and double doors to a dining room. To one end of the sitting room is an enclosed study area with a loft access hatch. Steps lead from the dining room to the kitchen /breakfast room. Also on the ground floor are two double bedrooms, one of which has an en suite shower room and dressing room and a family bathroom. Stairs lead to the first floor where there is a third double bedroom with south facing balcony and stairs to bedroom four which has a restricted ceiling height and easy access to the loft space. The property occupies a delightful south facing position.

Outside - Townsend Barn has an enclosed south facing garden laid principally to level lawn and bordered by mature shrubs, trees and flowers. The garden offers a good level of privacy, rare in a village home of this type. At the far end of the garden is a detached garage with timber doors under a timber beam and this elevation is in natural stone. Also with light and power connected. A pedestrian gate leads from the garden to the parking area with space for approximately three vehicles. The drive is accessed via Garden Close.
