A character Victorian house with good sized rooms, garden, garage and scope to update and improve.
Kenmore is believed to have been built in 1848 of red brick elevations under a pitched slate roof with a further extension in 1911. It is linked to the neighbouring property at the rear. Internally the house has the opportunity for an incoming buyer to update and add value but offers good sized rooms with gross internal area being around 1900 sq. ft. From the porch a door opens to the hall with staircase to first floor. The two original reception rooms have Victorian proportions with good ceiling heights and the study/snug being a dual aspect room with open fire. The dining room has doors to the kitchen and dual aspect sitting room with large bay window and open fire. The kitchen is towards the rear of the house with adjoining garden room, store and cloakroom. On the first floor there are three good double bedrooms and family bathroom. Outside there is a detached garage, garden and off road parking. Kenmore has good sized accommodation with principal rooms being south facing, light and bright and plenty of scope for a buyer to put their own stamp on.

The property is approached via wrought iron gates on to a drive with parking and turning. There is a detached brick garage with electric up and over door, power and light. Some steps lead up to the garden which is laid to lawn and enclosed with hedging and some mature trees giving privacy.

East Stour has two pubs, a farm shop, coffee shop and restaurant and active community. The area is surrounded by the beautiful, gently rolling countryside of the Blackmore Vale. The North Dorset town of Gillingham is about 2 miles away and has a full range of everyday shops and services including Waitrose and mainline railway to London Waterloo. The A30, gives access to Shaftesbury, Sherborne and Salisbury and is about half a mile away. The A303 is just to the north of Gillingham and the excellent road links provide good access to Yeovil and the south coast. The area is well known for its abundance of excellent state and private schools and some excellent walking and riding countryside.
