Property Details

***MUST BE VIEWED TO APPRECIATE THIS SPACIOUS HOME *** A great opportunity to purchase a fabulous extended semi detached grade II listed cottage sitting in good sized grounds and offering well proportioned and comfortable living space. The cottage is situated in the conservation area of Stalbridge, Dorset's smallest town and just a short walk to all the amenities. We believe that the cottage dates to the 1840s and has been the very much cherished family home of our sellers for over thirty six years. During this time it has been well maintained and improved with a rear extension providing a wonderful kitchen/breakfast room and master bedroom with en-suite plus a further extension creating a lovely dining room with view over the rear garden. The cottage retains character features, such as, stone mullions with arched metal casement windows with some having seats beneath and most having secondary glazing. The extension windows benefit from uPVC double glazing with an attractive Georgian bar. To cater for modern day needs the cottage has gas fired central heating from a combination boiler. An early viewing is highly recommended to avoid missing out on the chance to purchase this delightful home.
