Cleverly converted from a former farm building, this charming property boasts a wood burner, eco-credentials, veranda overlooking the paddock and easy access for touring this picturesque county.

Middlemarsh is a peaceful, rural spot and ideal for a relaxing break or for those wishing to visit local attractions. The closest town is Sherborne, which is known for its long and varied history, being home to two castles and an Abbey with Saxon origins. Here you can find a good range of independent shops and eateries. Dorchester, the county town of Dorset, is 11 miles to the south and offers high street shops, two cinemas and numerous bars, cafés and restaurants. The picturesque rolling hills surrounding the village are the ideal backdrop for all manner of outdoor pursuits and also home to some unusual landmarks, including the Cerne Abbas Giant, which is well worth a visit.

From the shared courtyard a private entrance door leads into this mid-terrace, single-story property. Once walking inside, you are met with a welcoming hallway leading to the striking lounge/kitchen/diner on your right. This cleverly designed open-plan space has high ceilings, beams and a lounge area with Smart TV to watch all your favourite programmes and wood burner to relax on those cosy nights in. There is a dining table for everyone to sit down and enjoy an evening meal together or even just for a drink whilst watching the chef prepare a meal. The kitchen area has everything you need to cook up a storm with electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, and dishwasher. Heading back into the hallway when heading off to bed you will find a charming dual aspect double bedroom with beams and also a contemporary shower room with shower and WC.

Doors from the lounge/kitchen/diner open onto a fantastic covered veranda with furniture and a lovely outlook over the adjacent paddock and open countryside beyond. To the front of the property is a shared courtyard with parking for two cars. A small stream runs under the veranda and there is a pond across the driveway in the owners’ garden which is bordered with post and rail fencing, please take care with children.
