Marnhull is one of the largest villages in England and has a thriving community life with a primary school, three churches, an inn, 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 inThomas Hardy’s Tess of the D’Urbevilles as Marlott and the views surrounding the village will leave you in no doubt as to why the Blackmore Vale was so close to his heart.
The Property: This Detached Bungalow was purchased from new from Developers Alford Homes some 37 years ago as part of a small and exclusive development of houses and bungalows built on meadow land that formed part of a local farm. Ham Meadows is a sought after development within the village as it offers ease of access to Burton Street and the good range of local shops to be found there. The property itself has stone mullioned windows to the front elevation and Bradstone walls under a tiled roof.
Over the years our clients have very much enjoyed living in Ham Meadows and participating in village life and all that the surrounding area has to offer.
