    About this property

    • The Willows is a delightful, detached three bedroom chalet-style property, set within its own secluded grounds, surrounded by glorious rolling Dorset and Somerset countryside. The current owners have reconfigured and improved the house opening up the kitchen/breakfast room, now with a gallery and skylight above providing a light and airy feel. The accommodation is spacious, flexible and well arranged over two floors, with two similarly sized bedrooms situated on the ground floor and the master suite, with en suite and dressing area on the first floor.

      The living space has plenty of large windows and French doors, as well as a double glazed conservatory, giving you pleasant views across the garden all year round. From the entrance hall, you can access both the utility room and garage, which both have the potential for alternative use subject to necessary planning consents.

      With its own grounds of just under three quarters of an acre, the property is enclosed to the front and sides by tall, mature hedging making it a very private setting. At the side of the property, you will find off road parking for several vehicles and access to the garage. The rear garden has plenty of interest and character from an old weeping willow shading a secluded area of the garden and a small stream running through, lined with yellow iris in the spring. This charming garden consists of a variety of flowers, trees and shrubs many of which have been lovingly grown by the vendors.
