Enjoying a tucked away location in a highly sought after road - the property is an attractive and large Edwardian detached house, understood to have been built in circa 1913 with brick elevations under a slate roof. The accommodation is well proportioned and has a whole number of features typical of its age and type including high ceilings, deep skirting boards, ornate cornices, bay windows and a stained glass window above the front door. From the first floor there are views over the town and the surrounding hills. Although well maintained over the years, the house still offers improvement/alteration potential which might include opening up between the kitchen/breakfast room and dining room to create one very large kitchen/dining/family room and creating an en suite shower room to the principal bedroom.
There is a large parking area with space for caravan/boat storage, an attached garage and the garden enjoys a west facing aspect and features a detached brick studio/hobbies room.
The property would make an ideal family home and viewing is strongly recommended by the sole agents.
* The property has been subject to historic settlement and a structural engineers report is available.
The property is a set well back and approached through double gates onto a long tarmac driveway (under the ownership of West Dorset District Council but with no public access) leading to a parking area and ATTACHED GARAGE.
The garden lies to the west and is down to lawn, together with paving, timber decking, a range of flower and shrub beds plus vegetable patch.
DETACHED BRICK STUDIO/HOBBIES ROOM Power & light.
