Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A detached, 4 bedroom and well-presented modern village property in a quiet location with lovely views beyond having adaptable accommodation and a garden office.

Once upon a time this property was a compact 1960s bungalow, but no longer! In 2008 it was considerably extended on the ground floor and the roof raised to create a spacious first floor and now offers flexible accommodation with a ground floor bedroom and shower room possibly to suit a dependent relative, additionally the Gillingham school bus stops in the village. It is surrounded by lovely countryside and the vendors have enjoyed the company of their neighbours and the strong village community.
This well presented property is situated in a peaceful cul-de-sac and has rendered and brick elevations and a pitched tiled roof. There is a generous parking area to the front suitable for several cars, a small area of grass and a useful log/bike store. Steps lead to the front door which opens into a good sized entrance lobby with a tiled floor and plenty of space for coats and boots and a further door to the hall. The sitting room is dual aspect and has a multi fuel burner on a slate hearth with double doors opening to the family room. This room adjoins the kitchen so could be used as a dining room, snug or study. The kitchen/dining room forms part of the extension and is a real asset to the property. It is a wonderfully spacious room with double doors onto the garden and plenty of room for a dining table along with a good range of floor and eye level units, display cabinets, basket shelves and a free standing island. There is a ceramic sink and drainer, integrated dishwasher and fridge freezer and space for a range cooker.
The large utility room has matching units and wooden worktops, Belfast sink, space and plumbing for washing machine and tumble dryer. Door to shower room and door to garage. Stone tiled floor runs through the kitchen, utility and shower room with underfloor heating. In addition there is a ground floor bedroom.
On the first floor the landing has fitted wardrobes and an airing cupboard. The master bedroom has double aspect dormer windows, good ceiling height, an ensuite shower room and lovely far reaching views towards Marnhull Church, Bulbarrow Hill and Melbury Abbas. Bedroom 2 has particularly generous proportions and bedroom 3 is an ideal child's bedroom and has potential to create a cupboard or storage behind the chimney pillar. There is a modern large family bathroom with separate shower.

At the rear of the property a patio runs the full width and there is a level lawn with raised vegetable beds, pedestrian access to the front, a garden shed and greenhouse.
In addition there is a fully insulated garden office with power, electric heating and W.C. which could also be used as a luxurious summerhouse or overflow guest accommodation.

Stour Row is a desirable village situated 3 miles south of the Saxon hilltop Town of Shaftesbury. Shaftesbury made famous by its cobbled street Gold Hill is a popular town offering a good range of high street and boutique shops, supermarkets, secondary schooling and recreational facilities. Further east is the cathedral city of Salisbury offering the usual facilities and opportunities of a regional centre.

The property has the benefit of a rural position combined with good access to the A30 and a mainline station at Gillingham (6 miles). There is an excellent network of footpaths and bridleways to the surrounding countryside and Duncliffe Hill which provides breath-taking views over the Blackmore Vale. There are excellent junior, secondary and independent schools in the area.
