Dating from the 1700's and converted in 1972, East Barn is a very pretty terraced stone and red brick building under a tiled roof in a quiet position that has been completely refurbished by our client who bought it in 2014. The property is sensibly configured with good ceiling heights and light and bright accommodation, with access to the well appointed kitchen off the sitting/dining room which is a light room with windows overlooking the delightful private garden. At first floor level, there are three double bedrooms and bathroom. The property is now in first class order with oak doors throughout and a lovely outlook over the surrounding hills from first floor level. East barn is accessed off Hobgoblin via a lane that leads to a tarmacadamed area with five garages one of which is owned by East Barn. The garden is approached through a small metal gate up a paved path to the front door and lies to the front of the property; it is principally to lawn with a wide variety of colourful flower and shrub borders with hostas, a rose clad pergola and mature apple tree. It is fenced on both sides by close boarded fencing with a wide variety of flowering shrubs. East Barn 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.
