Property Details

4 3 2
A perfect chance to purchase a substantial four bedroom detached family home with a two bedroom annexe set in grounds extending to about 7 acres and located on the fringe of the popular Dorset village of Stalbridge. The property presents an ideal opportunity to change direction and enjoy a taste of the 'Good Life' as a small holding or to be used as an equestrian property as well as having the potential (subject to the necessary permissions) to provide an income from the annexe either as a holiday let or a monthly rental. The property has been a much loved home to our selling family for the last fifteen years. During this time it has been extremely well maintained and improved with a two storey extension and an internal re-configuration that has transformed the property into a contemporary home with multi functional usage. This fabulous home provides plenty of space for an existing or growing family who relish an outdoor country life with plenty of external space. This charming property and the grounds need to be viewed to really appreciate what it has to offer the next lucky owners.
