This very spacious detached bungalow has come to market for the first time in over 30 years. Situated along a no-through lane in a popular residential area, convenient for Beaminster School and just under half a mile from the centre of the town. The accommodation comprises entrance porch with inner door opening to the hallway with plenty of storage, three double bedrooms, a small shower room and family bathroom, a large L shaped living/dining room, which leads to a lovely garden room, the kitchen is accessed from both the hall and dining room and off the kitchen is a utility room, which has an external door to the rear garden.

The property is set in a good sized mature garden with a block paved driveway leading to the rear where there is a large double garage.

Most of the garden lies at the back with a patio seating area, a lawn, a path leading to the garage and beyond where there is another patio.

Right at the back of the garden is a small brook which forms the boundary and is much lower than the garden. There are steps at one end leading down to the brook.
