Blandford St Mary - Blandford St Mary - A beautifully presented 5 bedroom modern country house which formed part of Littleton House, an 18th century manor house now divided into 3 separate homes. Littleton House Cottage was rebuilt in the mid-1980s and forms a spacious family home extending to over 1800 square feet.

Traditionally built, with facing brick elevations under a slate roof, and occupied by our clients since 2005, Littleton Cottage is attached in part to Littleton House. A David Fennings conservatory was added in 2013.

Blandford St Mary is a popular village about 1.5 miles from the market town of Blandford Forum which offers a good range of retail amenities. There is easy access by road to the larger coastal towns of Poole and Bournemouth and the city of Salisbury, all of which have mainline rail links to London.

Connected to all mains services, the property has gas central heating and UPVC double glazed windows and is presented in good decorative condition throughout. The site extends to about a third of an acre, and the gardens are an outstanding feature.

An entrance porch leads to a hall, off of which there is a cloakroom. The large, triple aspect sitting room has a feature fireplace with a wood burning stove, double doors to the garden and further double doors to an attractive conservatory which has under floor heating. There is a separate dining room with a box bay window.

The modern kitchen/breakfast room also has electric under floor heating and features Corian work surfaces, a comprehensive range of base and wall units, built-in appliances including double oven, induction hob, extractor, fridge-freezer and dishwasher, and a door to outside. There is a separate utility room with access to outside.

The cottage has 5 first floor bedrooms, an en suite bathroom and a separate shower room.

A private gravel driveway leads through a 5-bar gate into a large, gravelled courtyard, where there is a detached double garage. There is a large brick terrace with stone steps leading up to a superb, largely walled, private garden with 2 well maintained lawns enclosed by brick walling, beech hedges and an established treeline. There are raised brick borders, with a paved pathway to a second area of lawn interspersed with several young trees including magnolia, maple and fruit trees. The property has a superb UPVC summerhouse with a productive grapevine, a shed, compost bins and a large, pavioured entertaining terrace and barbecue area.

A gate in the beech hedge gives access across the rear gardens of the other Littleton House properties in order to reach gates leading to a bridleway.
