Bought in 2017 by the current owners, Martins is a delightful attached brick house that has been comprehensively and imaginatively refurbished and extended. Works have included re-wiring, re-plumbing (with a new heating system), the installation of an oak framed vaulted kitchen/breakfast room, new floors, new kitchen and new bathrooms. In addition, a pre-application has been submitted to the local planning office for conversion of the garage into a bedroom/office with shower room linked to the main building by a glass passage. Martins is in immaculate order and now offers beautifully presented accommodation with good ceiling heights. Other attributes include attractive engineered oak flooring, oak doors and high quality finishes throughout. Martins 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.
