Tenure: Freehold

Tara Cottage is a stylish individual brick and flint detached house, built about 20 years ago on an award-winning development, perfectly situated on the edge of town in a sought after and convenient location a short distance from the centre of Blandford. Home to the current owner for about 12 years the house has attractively presented and well-organised accommodation comprising a large entrance hall with a good sized sitting room with an open fireplace and French doors on one side, and a dining room/study and fitted kitchen with separate utility area to the other. Upstairs there are 4 good bedrooms (1 en suite) and a contemporary family bathroom. The accommodation is supplemented by a useful studio/office (which could easily be converted into an annexe subject to consent) above the garage. Tara Cottage also benefits from double glazing, gas fired central heating and good levels of insulation making it an economic and easy house to manage, and a great family home in a great location.

Situated virtually at the end of this quiet cul-de-sac along with four other similar homes, Tara Cottage has a lovely garden with neatly clipped ornamental hedges and colourful borders to the front, a wide tarmac drive and plenty of parking in front of the detached double garage and a good size private walled garden at the back. Immediately behind the house there is a large timber deck which gets the benefit of the morning sun, on the other side of the garden another deck which is off the kitchen and is in the afternoon and evening sun, and in between there is a large lawn surrounded by colourful and imaginatively stocked borders, mature shrubs and specimen trees. The detached double garage has twin up and over doors and a staircase leading up to an office/studio in the attic, which might be converted to an annexe (subject to planning consent).

All mains services are available at the property. Gas fired radiator central heating. Good broadband service.
