Property description

A spacious and well-presented detached bungalow built in the 1950s of Portland Stone elevations with unique Portland fossils set in the stone. The bungalow was extended in 2001 to create additional accommodation. The current owner has added a new conservatory, new bathroom and had a new oil fired central heating boiler with a 5 year extended guarantee.

A uPVC door opens into an enclosed entrance porch where a further uPVC door provides access into the hallway. The hall has access to most of the rooms and the loft which has a ladder and a light, is fully insulated and mostly boarded.

From the hall a door leads into the sitting room which has a double glazed window to the front, a TV point, a radiator and a fireplace with an electric fire inset.

On the opposite side of the hall is a door into the kitchen which has a double glazed window to the front and a range of fitted wall, base and drawer units, a stainless steel sink unit with drainer and mixer tap, integral electric hob and oven with an extractor hood over, space for a washing machine and under counter
fridge. An airing cupboard houses the hot water cylinder and the oil central heating boiler is hidden away in a cupboard.

There is a separate dining room which has French doors into the conservatory, a cloaks cupboard and a door into the store/utility room.

The store/utility room leads through to the fourth bedroom which has a double glazed window to the front. These rooms have great potential to perhaps convert into a bedroom with an ensuite.

The new conservatory is a lovely all year round place to enjoy the garden with a tier 4 ultra-glass roof and a radiator, it is designed to keep cool in the summer and warm during the winter months. French doors provide access to the rear garden.

At the other end of the bungalow are three further bedrooms, the master is of an excellent size with ample fitted wardrobe space and a door into the ensuite shower room.

The bathroom comprises WC, hand wash basin set within a vanity unit and a bath with a shower connection.

The property is accessed via a sloping tarmac drive which provides ample parking for several vehicles and access to the garage. To the front is a wooden panel fence bordered by mature shrubs and trees.

The South West facing rear garden has been well maintained and is laid to patio, mature flower beds and herbaceous borders. There is an outside tap and the rear garden is fully enclosed by wooden panel fencing and stone walls. To the rear of the garden is a wooden constructed gazebo.

There is an area of garden to the side of the property where there is a ‘kitchen garden’ with two apple trees and strawberry plants. A gate provides pedestrian access to the driveway and there is a door into the garage.

The single garage is of an excellent size with ample space for a car and a garden store, there is an up and over door to the front, a double glazed window to the side and a pedestrian door to the side. There is light and power connected and storage in the roof rafters.

Longburton has an active community with a public house, village hall and parish church with plenty of clubs and activities.

There is excellent walking through the area and very good schools in Sherborne, with Leweston School within walking distance. Longburton is a couple of minutes’ drive from Sherborne, where you will also find a wide range of shops and business facilities.

There is also a bus service from Longburton to Dorchester and to Sherborne where there is a mainline rail service to London Waterloo (about two and a quarter hours).
