Property Description

Full description

Boasting a fabulous rural location with no close by neighbours and views, surrounded by the most beautiful Blackmore Vale countryside is this splendid country home offering flexible room usage and set in just under an acre of ground. Our client advises us that the property was built in 1938 for a local farmer to spend his retirement years in and over the course of time has evolved to a roomy family residence with an historic extension to the side and a first floor addition - taking full advantage of the stunning views - added during the seventeen years that our sellers have owned the property. The property benefits from double glazing, except the porch, with some windows featuring a leaded light inlay and oil fired central heating via radiators. Internally, the property offers well proportioned comfortable living with the opportunity of having multi-functional rooms and scope to make it one's own. Therefore, it is imperative to view the property to see how this lovely family home would meet a great many potential buyers' needs - from an established family, growing family or even for those looking to provide for a dependent relative - amongst others.

In brief, the ground floor accommodation consists of useful porch, dining room with fireplace, snug/study with fireplace, kitchen/breakfast room, utility/boot room, ground floor bedroom and bathroom. On the first floor there is the galleried sitting room with a triple outlook and double doors opening to the balcony, three bedrooms, two of which are of a double size, bathroom and separate WC. Outside there is a double garage, attached lean to, purpose built storage sheds and beautifully kept gardens laid to lawn and interspersed with shrub and flower beds plus a range of fruit trees. The entire grounds provide plenty of privacy and have a sunny aspect.
