Introduction

Enjoying generous grounds approaching ¼ acre is this charming three double bedroom bungalow believed to date back to 1930's occupying an elevated position within a stunning established sylvan setting. Oakwood Lodge is set back from the main thoroughfare and screened by established hedging and trees which provide an ideal seclusion to the gardens which comprise a long driveway for several vehicles accessing the large detached double garage to the rear. Whilst private, the bungalow is within easy walking distance of the extensive village amenities and offers ideal commuter access via the A36 to Salisbury and Southampton and is located within catchment of excellent local schooling including the desirable Salisbury Grammar Schools. It may also offer potential for redevelopment or extension subject to the necessary planning consents.

The focal point to the room is the exposed brick fireplace with wood burning stove. The spacious kitchen breakfast room is equipped with cream coloured eye and base level units and complementary worktops with inset one and half bowl stainless steel sink. There is space for a range oven, slimline dishwasher, washing machine and under counter fridge and freezer set upon a ceramic tiled floor.

Bedrooms two and three are large enough to host double beds and appropriate furniture and enjoy front aspect views over the delightful grounds. The bedrooms are served by a family bathroom suite with a mixer tap shower over the bath, loft access and airing cupboard hosting the Worcester Bosch combination boiler.
