About the property
A SPACIOUS & VERSATILE THREE BEDROOM BUNGALOW WITH TWO RECEPTIONS & CONSERVATORY, SET IN A GENEROUS PLOT WITH GARAGE & DRIVEWAY
The village of Spetisbury takes its name from the Old English words speoht (woodpecker) and byrig (a fort). It lies between the River Stour and the now disused Blandford to Poole railway. The North Dorset Trailway now runs for approximately 2.5 miles along a flat, surfaced, 2-metre wide track suitable for horses, bicycles and walkers. The Spetisbury section starts at the East end of the village on Louse Lane, and passes alongside the Iron Age hill fort at Spetisbury Rings and the remains of Spetisbury Halt Railway Station. This section ends just short of the "Tesco" roundabout on the outskirts of Blandford Forum.
Spetisbury benefits from a Parish Church, Village Hall, Primary School, Farm Shop and Café and there are excellent walking/cycling routes including a pleasant circular walk along the river and meadows. Further facilities are available in the nearby Georgian market town of Blandford Forum and there are regular buses to Poole. Blandford has a range of amenities and facilities including a leisure centre, restaurants, cafes, shops, supermarkets including a MandS Foodhall. There is also a fantastic range of independent and state schools in the area.
The bungalow is accessed via a UPVC door into the entrance porch which opens into the hall with airing cupboard and hatch to loft space with sliding ladder. The loft has potential to convert subject to the relevant planning. Doors lead to; the large dual aspect sitting room with bay window and views across the garden towards a paddock and views across the meadows towards Badbury Rings. The formal dining room has a built in book case, bay window and a pleasant outlook. The kitchen has a range of eye and base level units with 1½ bowl sink and drainer, integrated appliances to include a four ring gas hob with cooker hood above, eye level oven. There is plumbing and space for dishwasher and washing machine as well as a fridge/freezer. There is further work surface space provided from a breakfast bar. The kitchen has a tiled splashback and floor.
A door from the kitchen opens into the conservatory which enjoys a view of the enclosed courtyard. The principal bedroom has built in wardrobes and sliding doors to the courtyard there is also an ensuite shower room with corner shower cubicle, corner basin and WC. Bedroom two also has fitted wardrobes and sliding doors to the courtyard. Bedroom three has a built in cupboard and is currently used as a study. The family bathroom has a panel enclosed bath, pedestal basin and WC.
The gardens are a particular feature and wrap around the bungalow. The land was part of a walled garden of the neighbouring property which gives the garden a lovely backdrop. The garden has a range of borders with mature shrubs and perennials and lawn. A gate gives access to the secluded and sheltered courtyard which has a water feature. There is an additional area of hidden garden through a wrought iron gate which gives access to the vegetable and fruit garden. It would be possible to form access to the trailway. The bottom of the drive is accessed through a sliding gate to the lower garden and gravel parking area. The driveway leads up to further parking and the garage. The garage has an electric up and over door with power and lighting and houses the solar panel controls. A door from the rear of the garage leads to the courtyard.
