About This Property

A handsome and individual detached four bedroom bungalow situated in the heart of the highly regarded village of Longburton, set within most magnificent gardens of approximately a third of an acre, with generous parking and countryside views. EPC Band D.

Stonelea is a delightful property built in the 1960s of attractive reconstituted stone and rendered elevations under a tiled roof. The property has been in our vendors ownership for generations and is nestled in outstanding gardens which amount to approximately a third of an acre, and are an absolute gardener’s paradise, brimming with fruit trees and herbaceous plants, offering pleasing views across local countryside.
The property is private, yet located in the heart of the village and is presented in impressive order, offering well connected living spaces which are enhanced with an abundance of natural light and enjoy glorious views over the exceptional gardens. The property also offers potential for extension subject to any necessary consents.
The kitchen/dining room is laid to attractive oak wood effect flooring and provides a wonderful space to cook, dine and entertain and flows out into a wonderful garden room with double celling height and garden access. The kitchen has a tastefully fitted kitchen with an excellent range of wall and floor cupboards, drawers and granite worktops. Integrated appliances include two eye level electric ovens, an integrated fridge/freezer, warming drawer and dishwasher. To the centre of the kitchen, there is an island unit which provides further storage, induction hob and a granite work surface which compliments the granite work surfaces within the kitchen.

Stonelea lies close to the centre of the Dorset village of Longburton which is conveniently placed just three miles to the south of Sherborne. The village has a church and a public house to its centre while Sherborne and the local regional centre of Yeovil provide between them an excellent range of cultural, recreational and shopping facilities. Sporting, walking and riding opportunities abound within the area with many walks to be had from the village itself while the region is well known for both its public and privately funded schooling. Communication links are good with a main line station at Sherborne linking directly with London Waterloo while road links are along the A303 joined at Wincanton giving swift access to London and the Home Counties along the M3, M25 route.

The secure gardens are undoubtedly a key selling feature of this property and will really appeal to garden enthusiasts. The current owners have invested vast amounts of time and care to design a garden which displays shape, colour and form throughout the year which is evident in every aspect of the garden. Double timber gates open onto a tarmac driveway which provides generous parking and turning area. A further set of timber gates provide additional parking to the rear of the property. The vendors have a lapsed planning permission for a detached car port, highlighting the potential for any prospective purchaser. The front gardens are predominantly laid to lawn with lawn and specimen trees, enclosed by hedging with a block paved pathway to he front door. The rear gardens face East and offers areas of lawn surrounded by floral borders and fruit trees to include both apple and plum. There is a covered terrace and raised vegetable beds.
