THE AGENTS SAYS...
A wonderful opportunity to purchase a detached family home located in a quiet cul de sac overlooking playing fields (and with countryside views from some aspects), on the edge of the popular village of Shillingstone. Built in 1992, the current owners have recently carried out a major
refurbishment comprising: new kitchen, bathroom, ensuite and cloakroom; replacement UPVC double glazed windows, doors, fascias, soffits etc.; installation of a new gas fire and redecoration throughout.
Under the covered entrance, the front door opens into a bright and welcoming hall. Stairs (with built-in storage cupboard underneath) rise to the first floor. White panelled doors lead to the dining room, kitchen/breakfast room and cloakroom. Glazed double doors open into the large dual aspect sitting room, with a bay window to the front and patio doors opening to the rear garden. This room also benefits from a new gas fire with a timber/marble surround and hearth. The good sized dining room overlooks the front garden and comfortably accommodates a 6-seater table and additional storage furniture. The smart, new, fully fitted kitchen with builtin appliances and breakfast bar, is light and bright and overlooks the rear garden. Off the kitchen is a utility room which provides access outside.
On the first floor, the galleried landing with full height window provides views of the countryside and
neighbouring hills to the front. The landing also has an airing cupboard and access to the loft space. There are four good sized bedrooms and the family bathroom. The principal bedroom benefits from built-in wardrobes and an en-suite shower room. Bedroom 2 also has a built-in wardrobe and enjoys countryside and hill views to the front. Bedrooms 3 and 4 are both dual aspect.
GARDENS AND GROUNDS
The property has a gravel driveway with ample parking, pedestrian access to the rear garden and a large double garage/workshop. The lawned front garden, with planted borders, is separated from the access road by a beech hedge and a path leads to the front door. The enclosed and secure rear garden is laid to lawn with shrub and flower beds. There is an outside tap and lights.
Shillingstone lies beside the River Stour and is a thriving village; it has a visiting post office, village shop (Co-op), pub, petrol station, popular primary school, church and a village hall. It is conveniently located for access to the nearby towns of Sturminster Newton (4 miles) and Blandford (6 miles), which both have secondary schools. Sherborne and Shaftesbury are also not far away. The village is surrounded by footpaths and bridleways, and the North Dorset trailway, which runs along the route of the old Somerset and Dorset Railway line, is only a short distance away.
