Lakes is a very attractive individual detached bungalow set in large gardens backing onto fields with lovely long range views located in the small and peaceful village of Bettiscombe within the beautiful Marshwood Vale. It is understood to have been built in circa 1980 having natural stone rendered elevations. The accommodation is very spacious and all of the principal rooms enjoy the lovely open country views to the rear. Although clearly well loved and cared for over the years, the property would now benefit from some general updating.
A pillared porch leads to a reception hall with cloakroom, a good sized sitting room with natural open fireplace and access to the conservatory, a separate dining room with an archway to the kitchen and a very useful utility/boot room with a separate WC. The principal bedroom has a shower cubicle and there are two further double bedrooms together with the main bathroom.
The extensive gardens are a further feature backing onto fields with wonderful far reaching views and there is also the added benefit of a large garage and detached store/workshop.
Properties in this lovely small village are rarely available and viewing is strongly recommended by the sole agents.OUTSIDE
A five bar gate leads onto a driveway with a side area providing additional parking or for caravan/boat storage. Attached large garage with workshop area and remote controlled door and a detached store/workshop with adjoining covered store.
The extensive gardens surround the bungalow and are principally lawned together with shrubs and flower borders plus a sun terrace.SITUATION
Lakes is pleasantly situated in Bettiscombe, a historic small village set amongst glorious countryside in the Marshwood Vale, which forms part of the West Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Bettiscombe's name is thought to mean "valley of the hermit" yet nowadays, despite its secluded rural setting, there is a village hall and church within the village. There are miles of footpaths throughout the surrounding countryside. A short drive from the property (or walk across the fields) is the Shaves Cross public house, and both Beaminster and Bridport are within easy reach, offering between them a very broad range of shopping, leisure, healthcare and cultural facilities. The Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site is also nearby as is the highly regarded Regency resort of Lyme Regis. There are schools for children of all ages in the area including primary schools in nearby Marshwood, Thorncombe and Broadwindsor.SERVICES
