Church Lane - Charlton Marshall - A beautifully presented 3 bedroom detached bungalow with a double garage and ample off road parking, built to a high specification in 2016, in a quiet location in a delightful, popular village with a pub, a church and a new village hall, beside the River Stour and surrounded by open countryside and the North Dorset Trailway.

It is about 2 miles from the Georgian town of Blandford Forum and about 8 miles from the market town of Wimborne Minster. There is good access by road to the coastal resorts of Poole and Bournemouth, both of which have mainline rail links to London Waterloo, and Primary Schools are available in the neighbouring villages of Blandford St Mary and Spetisbury.

The bungalow was built by Linden Homes in a mews style setting on the edge of the Old Orchard development, adjoining Church Lane, where there is vehicular access to the double garage. The development features a large, landscaped orchard area for the benefit of the residents. This well maintained property is connected to all mains services and has gas central heating, double glazing and the remainder of the 10-year building warranty.

A covered entrance way leads to a spacious reception hall with Karndean flooring, a walk-in store cupboard (with wall mounted gas boiler), and access, via retractable ladder, to the loft space (with fitted light) which offers scope for conversion, subject to planning consent. The nicely proportioned, dual aspect living room features a wood burning stove. The open plan kitchen/dining room has Karndean flooring, contemporary high gloss units, ample worktops, fridge-freezer, dishwasher, washer-dryer, Zanussi gas hob, cooker hood and electric oven. French doors lead out to the rear garden. There are 3 bedrooms, an en suite shower room (with WC, wash basin and shower cubicle) and a family bathroom with bath (with shower and screen over), WC, vanity wash basin and airing cupboard (housing a pressurised hot water cylinder).

The driveway off Church Lane provides ample off road parking and leads to a detached double garage with a pitched roof providing eaves storage space, 2 up-and-over doors (one of which is electrically operated), lighting and power points. The front of the bungalow looks onto a mews style approach, and the open plan front garden has a selection of shrubs. Enclosed by brick walling and timber fencing and affording a fair degree of privacy, the rear garden has lawns, a raised sun deck (with wrought iron balustrade), a paved patio, security lighting, a water tap, a power point and a rear gate giving access to the garage.

Directions: From Wimborne, proceed west along the A31 towards Dorchester. At the Roundhouse roundabout, take the third exit onto the A350 towards Blandford. Proceed through the villages of Sturminster Marshall and Spetisbury. On entering Charlton Marshall, proceed past The Charlton Inn on the right. Opposite the church, turn left into Church Lane, which bears left before becoming Cereleton Park. Going up the lane, the driveway and garage belonging to Pippins can be found on the left, just past the Charlton Manor turning. A pedestrian footpath leads to the front of the property.
