This property offers potential to EXPAND and improve, and would make a wonderful FAMILY HOME with a large well established garden backing onto farm land and set at the end of a QUIET CUL-DE-SAC. The village is very popular and boasts both a primary school, (St Nicolas CE VA) and The Ark nursery.


Child Okeford is a picturesque village nestled amongst the captivating landscape of the Blackmore Vale in the heart of the North Dorset countryside. Hambledon Hill lies to the east and the River Stour to the west and the village is in easy reach of the market towns of Shaftesbury and Blandford. The Village boasts two public houses, 'The Bakers Arms' and the Saxon Inn' both of which offer accommodation. There is also a village store and post office and both a Nursery and first school.

Located close to the village centre and at the end of a peaceful cul-de-sac this lovely terraced cottage has been the family home of the present owner since childhood. The property has large gardens both front and back, to the front of the property is enough off road parking for at least four vehicles, whilst also having an area which is laid to lawn and surrounded by hedging, providing plenty of privacy. The back garden is mainly laid to lawn with many well established trees and backs onto farm land and would be a marvellous and safe place for children to grow up and for entertaining friends.

With three bedrooms, a family bathroom and good sized living area the house further benefits from a large brick built outbuilding which is presently split into 2 rooms and a storage shed, with thoughtful planning, (and subject to the usual planning consents), this building, along with the conservatory could be incorporated into the main house to provide either more bedrooms or living space.
