Property description

Tenure: Freehold

A rural situated detached bungalow sat in a generous 0.75 acre (approx.) plot with countryside views and modern refurbished interior.

Longacre is a wonderful three bedroom detached bungalow with versatile accommodation and has been recently transformed with an extensive refurbishment programme throughout.

The property is of rendered elevations (recently rendered and painted) under a pitched tiled roof. Improvements consist of a fabulous rear kitchen extension, garage conversion and the updating of the electrics, heating and plumbing. The property has also had replacement double glazing (excluding the loft window) and has been fully redecorated throughout with high quality fittings including engineered oak flooring and internal oak doors.

The property stands centrally within the plot and provides well appointed accommodation. The front door leads you into the spacious entrance hall with engineered oak flooring and a useful cupboard with shelving. The living room sits at the front of the property with two large windows and an attractive fireplace with log burner and brick surround. The very social kitchen and dining space is to the rear of the bungalow and benefits from fabulous views over the adjoining garden and farmland.

The kitchen itself is simple yet effective with floor units and worktops over, space for range cooker and fridge/freezer. There is also space for a dishwasher and further fridge if needed. Some fitted items are included such as the spice rack and kitchen shelving. The separate utility room has plumbing and space for tumble dryer and washing machine.

All three bedrooms are a good size with large windows and engineered oak flooring. Both the family bathroom and the shower room are tastefully modernised with high quality fittings and decoration.

Gates open up into the large parking area to the front of the property and pathway leads to the front door.

The gardens wrap around the property and have undergone a very tasteful programme of clearing and planting.

The outside offers wonderful mature spaces with forest like trails and level lawned areas.

The gardens consists of newly planted hedge borders, various established trees and plants, raised vegetable beds, numerous outbuildings with power and light and even its very own raised decking area - an ideal al fresco dining space overlooking the immediate countryside.

There are two further access points into the gardens, with one at each end of the plot.

In all about three quarters of an acre.

Long Acre is situated on the outskirts of Okeford Fitzpaine and is positioned in a lovely rural location.

Okeford Fitzpaine is a delightful village in the Dorset Downs in the heart of North Dorset. The village is picturesque and the surrounding countryside offers some of the finest views of the county, particularly from Okeford Hill. There are many bridleways and footpaths and consequently some of the best walking and riding countryside is right on the doorsteps along the Wessex Ridgeway. There is a real village community that is well served by the shop and Post Office, parish Church, thriving primary school and popular pub. The market towns of Sturminster Newton and Blandford are both about 5 miles away and cater for everyday needs.
