A unique individual detached property with great potential in a lovely setting on the edge of the village. Built by the family of the current owners in the late 1980's this unique highly individual detached split-level bungalow was designed as a perfect retirement home but has great potential to be re-developed in to an exciting and spacious family home. The focal point of the house is the striking open plan living room with a vaulted ceiling, central fireplace and full height glazed south west elevation looking out across the gardens. On the opposite side of the central hall there are two double bedrooms and two bathrooms, the master bedroom with ensuite is particularly impressive. A staircase from the hall leads down to the lower ground floor where there is a utility room and a large office space or studio /workshop that could easily be converted into more bedroom and bathroom accommodation. Although the property has clearly been well looked after, Afterthoughts would now benefit from some very straight forward updating that might include installation of a new kitchen and new bathrooms, and possibly remodelling to increase the amount of accommodation. And it will once again be a perfect home for retirement or possibly for a busy family in an exceptionally good private edge of village setting. Situated at the end of a long private drive, shared with one other property, the gardens at Afterthoughts extend to about ½ acre and the property itself is situated at the end of the plot looking south back across the gardens towards the trailway. The gardens have been very attractively landscaped with a large lawn surrounded by well stocked mature borders and interspersed with a range of attractive trees and shrubs. From the entrance the drive sweeps around the garden to the back of the property where there is a double car port and plenty of space to build additional garaging or outbuildings (subject to planning). A popular village a few miles south of Blandford Forum, Spetisbury has a thriving community with a farm shop, primary school and busy village hall, and for a wider range of amenities it is only a short drive into Blandford with its historic Georgian market square and excellent range of shops and services including an M&S Food Hall, Tesco and Lidl superstores. The village is surrounded by lovely countryside, and a brisk walk or cycle ride will take you along the trailway to Blandford or down along the river towards Kingston Lacy (National Trust). There are plenty of opportunities for sport and recreation in the area, and Poole Harbour, Studland beach and Dorset's famous Jurassic coast are all less than half an hour's drive away to the south. Communication links are generally excellent. There is a regular bus service to Blandford and Poole, and its proximity to the Poole/Bournemouth/Christchurch conurbation make the village hugely convenient for people who work in that area. Commuting is straight forward, and easy access on to the A31 provides a quick link to the M27 for Southampton and Portsmouth and the M3 up to London. The mainline station in Poole has fast regular service to London Waterloo (about 2 hrs). Services: All mains services are available at the property. Gas fired radiator central heating and hot water.
