A very spacious detached property offering over 2,000 square feet of accommodation situated on the edge of Marshwood Village with breath-taking views over the Vale and beyond. The house is a chalet style which would benefit from modernisation and has the potential to become a stunning contemporary home. The house could be split into 2 if needed for multi generation living, extra income or carers accommodation (as it has its own access via the rear porch) into what could easily become a small kitchen, sitting room and bedroom. Planning permission has been approved for 3 large dormer windows in the roof of the bungalow and an attached double garage with living quarters or office space above it. Planning Reference: WD/D/18/002838.
The accommodation currently comprises: outer porch and entrance hall with stairs rising, a large lounge to one side of the house with patio doors to the garden, study/snug, bathroom, ground floor en suite bedroom, kitchen, lobby from the kitchen leads to two further rooms which can be bedrooms or dining room and further reception and a utility room (or separate annexe). Upstairs there is a large landing room with a bedroom to one side and to the other another reception room which leads in turn to a master bedroom with en-suite shower room. Beneath part of the house is a storage area and there is an attached garage. At the front is a gated driveway for parking several vehicles. The property sits on a good sized plot (almost ¾ of an acre) which stretches to either side of the property and in front, providing plenty of space for formal gardens, outside dining and growing produce or even keeping a few chickens.

The Energy-Efficiency Rating is a measure of a home's overall efficiency. The higher the rating, the more energy-efficient the home is, and the lower the fuel bills are likely to be.
The Environmental Impact Rating is a measure of a home's impact on the environment in terms of carbon dioxide (C02) emissions - the higher the rating, the less impact it has on the environment.
