High Street - Sturminster Marshall - A charming and quirky 2 bedroom detached cottage style home with a large conservatory, a low maintenance south facing garden, garage and parking, in the centre of the popular village of Sturminster Marshall. Built in the early 1990s as a 3 bedroom house, the property was re-modelled and refurbished with a character feel by the present owner in 2012, creating 2 large bedrooms, both with impressive en suites. The third bedroom could be reinstated if required.

A particular feature is a large conservatory with planning permission to rebuild and enlarge. Connected to all mains services, the property has gas central heating and UPVC double glazed windows.

82 High Street is adjacent to Sturminster Marshall First School, and has an attractive outlook over its playing field to the rear. This popular village, about 4 miles west of Wimborne, offers a good range of amenities including a Co-op post office/shop, a pharmacy, a parish church, a golf course and 2 pub/restaurants. There is easy access to Blandford Forum and Dorchester, and the coastal towns of Poole and Bournemouth are within 30 minutes' drive.

A gabled entrance porch with stone floor leads to a hallway with under stairs cupboard and cloakroom. Glazed double doors lead to a spacious living room with a wrought iron Victorian style open fireplace. Further glazed double doors )with side screens) lead to a large conservatory overlooking the rear garden, with gabled roof and terracotta tiled floor. The superb, dual aspect kitchen/dining room, which was formerly 2 rooms, has modern work surfaces and units, feature wall tiles, butler's sink, electric Aga (with 2 ovens), oven, ceramic touch-control hob, integrated dishwasher, space for washing machine and tumble dryer, LED lighting, oak flooring and door to the conservatory.

The first floor landing has loft access and an airing cupboard. Both bedrooms are spacious doubles with superb views over the school playing field. Bedroom 1 is a spacious room with a comprehensive range of fitted cupboards and drawers, and an en suite bath/shower room with twin-ended rolltop bath, large walk-in shower, French style basin, WC and half tiled walls. Bedroom 2 has 2 built-in wardrobes and a superb en suite shower room (with large double shower, wash basin, WC and half tiled walls).

From Moor Lane, a private driveway and gate lead to the rear garden, where there is parking and a large detached garage/studio with up-and-over door, personal door, light and power, which could be used as a home office/studio/workshop. The rear garden has been attractively paved with Indian sandstone for ease of maintenance, with pergola, and entertaining/barbecue area with space for sofas, tables and chairs. To the front there is a small garden with a painted white gate, laurel hedges, lawns, lavender and other shrubs.

Directions: From Wimborne, proceed west on the A31 towards Dorchester. At the Roundhouse roundabout, take the third exit towards Blandford. Take the first turning on the right into Station Road. At the roundabout, proceed straight ahead into The High Street, and number 82 can be found on the right, immediately after the village school.
