The Property Built in the 1960’s Portland House has been lovingly cared for and comes to the market in pristine condition. The current owners have lived in the property for over 25 years and have maintained it throughout that time.

Again the dining room has plenty of natural light and has double sliding doors to the conservatory. This is a lovely additional living area and has a very attractive outlook over the gardens.
The kitchen is fitted with a range of floor and wall units with integral electric double oven and hob and space for dish washer, washing machine, fridge and freezer.

The bathroom is fully tiled and fitted with a suite comprising bath, corner shower unit, WC, wash hand basin and heated towel rail. As with the ground floor, all the bedrooms are beautifully presented.

There is access to the double garage which has up and over door, a number of power points throughout and a water tap. There is a useful space to the rear ideal for a workshop area. There is access on both sides of the house to the rear garden. This is a truly delightful feature of the house with an attractive patio area with space for table and chairs. Most of the garden is laid to lawn and is bordered by shaped beds with a wonderful array of colourful shrubs, flowers and mature trees.

The area is well known for its highly regarded schools, both government and independent. These include The Gryphon, Sherborne Boys and Girls, Hazlegrove and Leweston, to name a few.
The road links are very good, with access to the A303 less than 5 miles to the north and for those of a mind the South Coast is less than 30 miles away.
