DOMVS is delighted to present CHAIN FREE this former post office and blacksmith's in the charming village of Affpuddle. Complete with COUNTRYSIDE VIEWS and unusually LARGE GARDEN, with ample off-road parking and DOUBLE GARAGE.
From first entering the property, the potential is evident: this property has spacious accommodation throughout and is a wonderful opportunity to make this a delightful family home with considerable space to extend, subject to any necessary consents.
The KITCHEN/BREAKFAST ROOM is spacious and light and is currently fitted with ample units and work surfaces; there is a gas point for a cooker and a 1.5 basin unit. Adjacent to the kitchen is the CONSERVATORY where the ground floor CLOAKROOM is also accessed. The conservatory has a part wood/glass door providing access to the driveway.

Stairs from the entrance hall rise to the FIRST FLOOR landing where 3 bedrooms and the family bathroom can be found. The bright and airy MASTER BEDROOM has a dual aspect, taking in the countryside views, and also has plentiful built-in wardrobes. BEDROOM 2 is a good size double room located to the front of the property. BEDROOM 3 again to the front of the property with countryside views, is a large single room. The FAMILY BATHROOM is of excellent size and provides a WC, hand-wash basin and bath, but could comfortably fit a separate shower unit as well. On the first floor landing there is also an airing cupboard.
To the side of the property is the walled driveway and access to the DOUBLE GARAGE, which has power and lighting as well as ample work surfaces, storage space and even a full length pit for any car enthusiast. There is also a large shed running the full length of the garage.

The village of Affpuddle has a strong sense of community, with a vibrant village hall and a community-run shop and post office in the nearby village of Briantspuddle, and less than 7 minutes from Moreton Train Station. In close proximity is Puddletown, where there are additional facilities including a library, veterinary practice and doctors' surgery.The village is well-placed for easy access to the A35, allowing access to Poole and Bournemouth, and the county town of Dorchester, all with London/Waterloo mainline railway stations.
