Marnhull is one of the largest villages in England and has a thriving community life with a primary school, three churches, an inn and doctors' surgery and dispensary. There are numerous clubs and societies which are based in the village and the nearby town of Sturminster Newton also boasts an active community centre providing a range of cultural and educational facilities. Marnhull is celebrated in Thomas Hardy’s Tess of the D’Urbevilles as Marlot and the views from around the village will leave you in no doubt as to why the Blackmore Vale was so close to his heart.
The first phase of the building of this bungalow occurred in 1971 when a renowned local builder began the creation of his family home on the site. Initially it must have been a modest bungalow. However, over the years it was extended to the rear elevation and now provides over 1,786 square feet of light and spacious accommodation which the current owners have improved and enhanced.
It has Marnhull stone elevations under a tiled roof, which to the south facing front elevation now has 16 solar panels which the current owners say covers most of their electrical usage and provides a cash return of around £700 per year. Internally the roof has been professionally sealed with foam, and cleaned and treated externally with fungicide again enhancing the carbon footprint of the property.
In 2015 the property has been completely rewired and the large window to the Sitting Room and front elevation has been replaced. The Master Bedroom Suite has a modern Bath and Shower Room and the Guest Suite has fitted wardrobes and a modern and spacious Ensuite Bathroom. The remaining Bedroom for the property has the use of the modern Family Shower Room.
The main Reception Room is large and square with an open fireplace and double doors that lead to the Dining Room with Garden Room off. The Kitchen Breakfast Room is of very good proportions and has an extensive range of fitted units together with a range style cooker and space for less formal dining, if required.
To the rear elevation the extension of the Bungalow over the years has not compromised the garden which is large and landscaped. Close to the rear of the property is a covered al fresco eating area whilst to the rear of the garden is a Summer House and separate Workshop/Garden Store of block construction which has a gardeners toilet and basin.
Over the years this charming bungalow has evolved to provide versatile and spacious accommodation and the now rather unassuming front elevation gives little indication as to what you will find beyond the front door. Definitely a must view property to appreciate all it has to offer.
