AN IMPRESSIVE AND STYLISHLY PRESENTED THREE STOREY TOWNHOUSE WELL SITUATED ON AN AWARD WINNING DEVELOPMENT 8 Turnpike is a unique and very well designed individual three storey terraced townhouse built about 20 years ago on an award winning development a short distance from the centre of Blandford Forum. At around 1,900 sq ft it is a much larger house than you might imagine at first glance, and it has been home to our clients from new. In all that time the house has been well maintained and cleverly improved. The kitchen/dining room was redesigned to our client's specification when the house was built, two of the three bathrooms have subsequently been upgraded and the house is simply but stylishly presented with a contemporary feel. On the ground floor the generous kitchen/dining room has a central island and French doors to the garden, and there is a separate utility room, a cloakroom and access to the oversize integral garage. On the middle floor the double aspect sitting room has built in library shelves and a west facing balcony. There are two bedrooms on the middle floor including the master bedroom with ensuite shower room and plenty of storage, and on the top floor there are two more bedrooms and two bath/shower rooms (one ensuite). 8 Turnpike is a comfortable and very practical modern townhouse with double glazing, modern insulation and gas heating that all go to make it an easy and efficient house to manage. And we know it will make a great home for the new owners, maybe for another 20 years. Turnpike Lane is a quiet paved cul-de-sac with plenty of on street parking and this house is perfectly orientated with the enclosed back garden facing due south-west, so it gets the best of the sun throughout the afternoon and the evening. The balcony off the sitting room looks into the garden, from the dining area French doors open onto a paved terrace and beyond that there is a small lawn surrounded by mature imaginative stocked borders. Cleverly, the garage is double ended so there is a small area of additional parking under the balcony, and it is possible to get in and out of the garden without coming through the house. Surrounded by picturesque countryside between two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Blandford is a busy market town known for its classic architecture and one of the finest Georgian churches outside London. From its perfect location across the river, 8 Turnpike is within easy reach of the centre of town where you will find all the usual amenities including an M&S Food Hall, Tesco and Lidl superstores together with doctors and dentist surgeries and a range of restaurants and pubs etc. From the house it is only a brisk walk or short drive into town or out into the lovely suroundng countryside. There are lots of opportunities for sport and recreation nearby and in about half an hour you can be enjoying water sports in Poole Harbour and Studland Bay or walking in Wareham Forest or along Dorset's renowned Jurassic coastline. Communication links are also good, the commute to Poole, Bournemouth, Ferndown and Dorchester is straightforward and easy access on to the A31 provides a quick link to the M27 for Southampton and Portsmouth and the M3 up to London. Salisbury and Poole stations are equally convenient (London Waterloo about 2 hrs) and the airports at Bournemouth and Southampton are easily accessible. Blandford is also well served with good local schools and as well as nearby primary and state secondary schools, independent schools include; Bryanston (on the doorstep), Milton Abbey, Canford and Clayesmore with prep schools at Hanford, Sandroyd, Castle Court and Dumpton. All mains services are available at the property. Gas fired central heating. Good Broadband.
