A beautifully presented new family house near the centre of this pretty village


Built to a particularly high specification with a 10 year ICW guarantee (International Construction Warranty) by a reputable local builder, The New House occupies a quiet site on the eastern fringe of the village with some fine views towards Preston Hill. The house has been designed with meticulous attention to detail with nicely proportioned rooms and light, bright accommodation. Attributes worthy of particular mention include the following: tiled and carpeted flooring, a high quality comprehensively fitted kitchen with quartz worktops, a Samsung dishwasher and double oven, Caple fridge and fridge freezer, and a central island with Elica induction hob. On the first floor high quality bathroom fittings have been installed, the majority of which are made by Laufen with Axor hansgrohe showers. The New House also has the benefit of an Inotech wireless alarm system, underfloor heating on the ground floor, air source heating system and double-glazed windows throughout. Accessed off Watery Lane via a track which leads to a gravelled car parking and turning area adjoining which is a single garage with light and power. The garden lies to the front of the property and is principally to lawn with hedging to the front and flanked by post and rail and close boarded fencing on either side. There are flower and shrub borders and two standard tree roses and lavender beds. The attractive terrace is accessed either externally or through french windows from the sitting room. New House is close to the heart of this pretty and popular village which lies midway between Shaftesbury and Blandford Forum. Comprising mainly of period houses and cottages, Iwerne Minster has a good range of everyday facilities including a village post office and stores, Inn, church and sports centre. For a wider range of facilities there is the Saxon hilltop town of Shaftesbury to the north, and the Georgian town of Blandford Forum to the south. Both have a wide range of shops including supermarkets, delicatessens, cafes, doctors and dental surgeries, libraries, an arts centre, veterinary surgeries, small hospitals and secondary schools. The regional centres of Bournemouth/Poole and Bristol/Bath are within striking distance. There are mainline railway stations in both Tisbury and Gillingham (London Waterloo) and the A303 lies some 12 miles to the north giving access to the south west and London, via the M3.
