AN ATTRACTIVE TRADITIONALLY STYLED AND SPACIOUS HOUSE ON A PRIVATE DEVELOPMENT CLOSE TO THE CENTRE OF THE VILLAGE 4 South Farm Close is a handsome and substantial detached house with a traditionally styles brick and flint frontage that was built about 25 years ago as part of a private development close to the centre of the village. Neatly presented throughout, the generous and well organised accommodation is centred around a large entrance hall with a galleried landing and comprises a large double aspect sitting room with a fine open fireplace and French doors, a second sitting room or ground floor bedroom and study. The smart country style kitchen has been cleverly extended to create a large open plan family living area. A separate utility room and cloakroom complete the ground floor and upstairs there are 4 double bedrooms and 2 bath/shower rooms including a master suite with fitted wardrobes and shower room. High levels of insulation, double glazing and a modern oil-fired heating system make this impressive house easy and economical to manage, and we have no hesitation in recommending it as a first-class family home in a great location. The property benefits from a large well-kept garden with plenty of areas to catch the sun at some point during the day. To the front, the property is approached through double gates onto a wide gravel drive with plenty of parking and a Double Garage. A gated path leads through to the back garden and immediately behind the house there is a paved terrace with French doors from the sitting room, and beyond that a large lawn runs up a gentle slope to open fields at the top of the garden. The lawn is surrounded by well stocked beautifully kept flower and shrub borders and off to one side there is a useful Garden Shed and chicken run. South Farm Close is an exclusive private cul-de-sac well situated close to the centre of Tarrant Hinton, a popular village on the edge of Cranborne Chase and surrounded by lovely countryside that is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). Although the four Tarrant villages at this end of the valley (Gunville, Hinton, Launceston and Monkton) are rural they are by no means isolated and there is s thriving community in the valley. There is a church, busy village hall and a rather good wine shop in this village, a superb farm shop a couple of miles away in T. Gunville, and a good pub down the valley in T.Monkton (The Langton Arms). Blandford Forum is only a short drive away and as well the historic market square the town has good range of shops and other amenities including an M&S Food Hall and Tesco and Lidl superstores, and for a wider range of services Salisbury or Poole are both within half an hours' drive.

Salisbury is the most convenient station and has regular trains to London Waterloo (from 1 hr 45), and the business centres of Ferndown, Poole and are all easily commutable.

The surrounding countryside provides lots of good opportunities for sport and recreation with lovely walking, riding and cycling all around and excellent water sports less than an hour's drive away in Poole Harbour, Studland Bay and along Dorset's renowned Jurassic Coastline. This area has also become popular because of its wide selection of schools at all levels. There are village primary schools and secondary schools in Pimperne and Blandford.
