Built in the 1960's, 3 Sandilands Close is an attractive detached house with stone and tile hung elevations under a tiled roof. The property is sensibly configured with light and bright accommodation and appears to be in very good order. Recent works have included the laying of engineered oak flooring in the sitting room, dining room and hall, the installation of a new Heta stove and fireplace in the sitting room and a new bathroom on the first floor which has been fitted to a high standard. Other attributes worthy of note include well-proportioned rooms, a direct pressure water system and lovely outlook at the rear towards Duncliffe Hill. The property is approached off the close onto an area of hard standing which leads to the integral garage with an Everest electric up and over door. The front garden is principally laid to lawn flanked on either side by close boarded fencing and colourful flower and shrub borders. There is an attractive wisteria clad canopy over the porch with a small terraced area. A path leads round to the rear garden which is mainly laid to lawn with soft fruit trees. This is flanked by tall hedging at the rear and close boarded fencing on each side with a most attractive terraced and gravelled area. There are colourful flower and shrub borders; plants including roses, hydrangeas and foxgloves. Timber mower shed and a useful timber storage shed. 3 Sandilands Close is in the village of East Stour which is in the heart of the Blackmore Vale. East Stour has a church, a public house and a farm shop whilst the neighbouring village of West Stour has a garage, shop, country pub hotel and restaurant. A wide range of everyday facilities can be found in Gillingham, which has a mainline railway station (London Waterloo), a Waitrose and an excellent secondary school, Gillingham High School. Also nearby is Shaftesbury, which has a number of niche retailers, banks, boutique hotel, churches, a small hospital, health centre, library and an arts centre, as well as primary and secondary schools. More sophisticated requirements can be found in the cathedral city of Salisbury to the east, Sherborne to the west and the Georgian spa town of Bath to the north. The A303 lies some 6 miles to the north, giving access to the South West and London, via the M3.
