Other features include an underfloor heating system on the ground floor controlled by wall mounted digital thermostats in four separate zones and UPVC double glazing throughout. There is a handy utility room linking into the garage and a separate cloakroom, and a living room with open fireplace which could house a log burner if required. Upstairs there are three double bedrooms, the master having an ensuite shower room and a separate family bathroom. Both have a classic feel with on trend tiling and vanity unit with fitted basin and wc. Two of the bedrooms have built in wardrobes.


The property is approached over a brick paved drive and has an attached garage to rear. A paved path with Cotswold stone borders winds around the house to a covered front porch. There are chipped bark beds that have had numerous shrubs planted both to front and to rear. A secluded paved patio to the rear completes the garden with fencing surrounding the entire plot. The house also benefits from motion sensor security lighting.


The property is situated in the thriving village of Marnhull best known as Marlot in Thomas Hardy's Tess of the D'Urbervilles and is located in the heart of the Blackmore Vale, surrounded by wonderful Dorset countryside. The village itself provides many amenities including post office stores, church, public house, doctors surgery and primary school. The village also has a bus route and petrol filling station. Beyond the village, other towns within easy driving distance include Sturminster Newton, Sherborne to the west, Shaftesbury to the east and Wincanton to the north, which provides access to the A303. Both Sherborne and Gillingham provide mainline railway stations with regular services to London Waterloo. As well as the village primary school, the property is well located for the many excellent schools in both the private and public sectors.
