Built by a local landowner in 1954 as a 2 bedroom bungalow, and extended in more recent times, the bungalow is of traditional cavity brick construction with a hipped roof of small plain tiles. It has been refurbished to an impressive specification, with under floor LPG heating (with underground tank), UPVC double glazed windows, water softener, PVC fascias, recessed cool and warm lighting, and a superb, dual aspect kitchen/family room. Tarrant Hinton is a picturesque setting with a parish church and a village hall, and shops are available in Tarrant Gunville, Tarrant Rawston and Chettle. The market town of Blandford Forum is about 4 miles away, and there is good access by road to Poole, Bournemouth and Salisbury, all of which have railway stations.
A covered entrance way with a black limestone step and a solid oak front door leads to the entrance hallway. The sitting room has an attractive bay window overlooking the driveway. There is an impressive contemporary kitchen/family room with unusual black quartz work surfaces, high gloss Wren units, black carbonised under-bowl sink, space for table and chairs, Rangemaster range cooker (with 5 burners, 2 ovens and grill), integrated Bosch dishwasher, space for American style fridge-freezer (available by separate negotiation), LED lighting, quality laminate flooring and casement doors to outside. There are 3 double bedrooms, one of which has a pair of doors to outside and a superb view over farmland, and a superb shower room with large walk-in shower, vanity unit with inset wash basin and cupboards under, suspended WC, contemporary towel radiator, and wet room floor.
A large courtyard and driveway offers parking for 8/10 vehicles and space to erect a garage, subject to planning consent. The gardens surround the property on 3 sides, and are laid to grass with an established fruit tree. The 3,000 litre LPG tank is buried beneath the lawn. There are outstanding, far reaching views over the adjacent farmland.
Directions: From Blandford Forum, proceed towards Salisbury on the A354, passing through the village of Pimperne. Turn left into Tarrant Hinton and follow the road along, passing the village hall on the right. Take the next turning on the right into Northfield, turn left again, and Chestnut Corner can be found at the head of the cul-de-sac.
