The Property
A well-presented bungalow situated in a quiet corner of a cul-de-sac, ideally located for the village amenities.

There is an area of lawn with deep gravelled beds to one side - ideal for pots, tubs and garden ornaments. There is an additional patio area with shingle and paved area, and a charming wooden summer house at the back of the garden.

The property is situated on the edge of Yetminster which has a range of amenities including a pub, village store, veterinary practice and gp surgery.
