A bright and spacious individual family home nicely situated in a quiet cul-de-sac in a very popular village. 17 Manor Farm Close was built in 2006 by Wyatt Homes, a well-respected south coast developer with a reputation for building high quality high specification houses. Immaculately presented throughout, the house has clearly been very well maintained, and the use of attractive oak doors and joinery with timber and ceramic floors give a feeling of quality throughout. Off the hall to the right there is a fine dual aspect sitting room with a polished stone fireplace and French doors to the garden, and to the left a dining room linked to kitchen and with double doors to the sitting room allowing these rooms to be integrated to create an open plan effect. Updated in 2016, the kitchen/breakfast room has a good range of contemporary "Country Image" units and quality built-in appliances. A study/snug, cloakroom and separate utility room complete the ground floor and upstairs there are four good double bedrooms and two well-appointed bath/shower rooms. The master bedroom is particularly impressive with an ensuite shower and a dressing area. High spec' "Evolution" double glazed windows and doors were installed in 2017, and a new gas boiler was installed in 2016, and together wiht high levels of insulation, this makes 17 Manor Farm Close an economical and easy house to manage. All in all, a perfect modern home in a great location. The enclosed private rear garden is equally well kept and easily managed with a central lawn surrounded by beautifully stocked colourful borders and a variety of specimen acer and fruit trees and shrubs. Paved seating areas around the garden mean there is somewhere to sit in the sun throughout the day. About three miles north east of Blandford Forum, Pimperne is a popular and thriving village with a successful primary school, a busy village hall, its own gym and a couple of pubs (The Anvil and The Farquharson Arms). For everyday shops and services, it is only a short drive into Blandford with its historic Georgian market square and excellent range of services and amenities including an M&S food hall, Lidl and Tesco superstores. Communication links around the village are good. It is only a short drive into the Poole/Bournemouth/Christchurch conurbation which makes this a very convenient location for people who commute to work in that area. Easy access on to the A31 provides a quick link to the M27 for Southampton and Portsmouth, and it is an easy drive to Salisbury and onto the A303/M3 for London. Most locals catch the train from Salisbury, which has a fast regular service to London (Waterloo). The village is situated at the heart of the Cranborne Chase and West Wiltshire Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and a brisk walk will take you up onto the Chase and into the rolling countryside that this part of Dorset is famed for. All mains services are available at the property. Gas fired radiator central heating. Excellent broadband service.
