Havelins - Stourpaine - A rare opportunity to acquire an older style 3 bedroom detached bungalow with NO FORWARD CHAIN and GREAT POTENTIAL FOR IMPROVEMENT, in a garden plot of about a quarter of an acre, in the centre of this picturesque village.

The property is set in a pretty lane leading to Stourpaine recreation ground (which houses a football pitch, tennis courts, a sports pavilion, a children's play area and a recently built village hall) and the North Dorset Trailway which offers a scenic, off-road walk/cycle ride to Shillingstone's former station and on to Sturminster Newton. Nearby Hod Hill also provides walks with impressive views. The market town of Blandford Forum is about 4 miles to the south, and the Saxon hilltop town of Shaftesbury is also easily accessible.

Built for the present owners in 1963, 7 Havelins offers great scope for extension and improvement, subject to planning consent. It is connected to mains drainage, electricity and water, and has electric night storage heating, double glazing and a security alarm.

It comprises a covered entrance porch, a reception hall (with loft access, airing cupboard and large, built-in coat cupboard), a dual aspect sitting room (with tiled open fireplace and a pair of double glazed French doors to the garden), a spacious kitchen/dining room with units, worktops, space and plumbing for washing machine, 3 bedrooms (2 of which have a dual aspect), a bathroom and a separate WC.

The bungalow is set back from the lane. A brick pillared entrance leads to a large driveway and parking area with space for a boat/caravan, and a brick built detached garage (with up-and-over door, window, lighting, power points and pitched roof providing eaves storage space.) To the rear there is a workshop (with light) and a log store. The beautifully landscaped gardens extend all around the bungalow and feature expansive lawns interspersed with shrubs, flower beds, a wide selection of roses, a large paved patio area, a kitchen garden and an aluminium-framed greenhouse.
