Tenure: Freehold

A rare opportunity to purchase a substantial detached bungalow set well within an exceptional plot that extends to approximately 3 acres. The home has been vastly extended over recent years creating the sizeable, versatile home you find today.

This imposing home offers a wealth of well presented flexible accommodation having been subject to a range of enhancements to maximise both the space and flexibility of the home and gardens.

The spacious accommodation offers over 2900 sq. ft. of living areas perfectly orientated to best enjoy the southerly aspect and vast grounds beyond. There are several rooms of note, including the superb formal sitting room with a feature fireplace, the glorious garden room that offers stunning views down the grounds and has a sliding door that opens to the covered sun terrace, perfect for outside entertaining and dining. There is further generous living accommodation in the excellent formal drawing room that leads through to a modern conservatory. In addition, there is a large study, sizeable kitchen/breakfast room and a useful utility/laundry room. The bedrooms are positioned within the heart of the home and are all generous doubles. The master bedroom has an en-suite bathroom whilst the remaining bedrooms are serviced by a family bathroom and separate cloakroom.

The light and airy accommodation as a whole is both spacious and flexible. It boasts an abundance of versatility and scope for further reconfiguration and enhancement, acting as a blank canvas to create the next owners dream home.

Situation

The property is situated on an elevated position on the edge of the village with far reaching views obtained from the front gardens and the rooms that face this way. Hains Lane is a small country lane leading from the main centre and therefore within walking distance of the village's extensive amenities. Marnhull is one of the largest villages in England with a thriving community life and is celebrated in Thomas Hardy's "Tess of the D'Urbervilles". It has two public houses, three churches, doctors' surgery, pharmacy, butchers, post office, hairdressers and beauty salon. There are many clubs and societies and is surrounded by beautiful countryside. The area offers great communication links with the mainline railways station serving London Waterloo and the South West at Gillingham (5miles) and the A30 linking east to west is located approximately 2 miles away.

Outside

The home is well positioned within its extensive gardens and grounds that amount to approximately 3 acres. The elevated position offers glorious rural views with the garden gently undulating behind the home with formal gardens leading into established parkland style grounds.

To the front of the home, a recessed gated driveway provides ample parking for several vehicles and allows access to the attached double garage. The front gardens are laid to lawn with decorative borders and mature hedged boundaries to either side.

The majority of the grounds lay to the rear of the home. The grounds are designed with relative ease of maintenance in mind. The formal grounds adjoin the rear of the home and have expansive paved terraces spanning the width of the home, perfect for al-fresco dining and entertaining, the perfect position to best enjoy the impressive grounds in privacy.

The remaining grounds have stunning mature and specimen trees with contoured borders and beds interspersing the vast swathes of lawn. There are several seating and viewing platforms along with several well positioned outbuildings and a wonderful large pond at the far boundary.

The gardens enjoy a southerly aspect and boast an excellent degree of privacy. Gardens of this size and maturity are a true rarity.
