Property Details

4 3 2
A great opportunity to purchase an extended semi detached family home with four generously sized bedrooms, boasting terrific far reaching views over the Blackmore Vale towards Duncliffe Hill and within a short walk to the town centre. Stalbridge is one of Dorset's smallest towns and caters well for everyday needs with an award wining family run supermarket, family own butchers, post office, dentist and public house plus a well rated primary school and community run library. We believe that the property dates to the 1950s and as been the very much cherished and enjoyed family home to our sellers for the last forty two years. During this time the property has been extended to the side to provide an additional reception room, enlarge kitchen and add a further bedroom. The property has also had a conservatory added and work in progress includes a utility room and cloakroom. This lovely home has been well maintained over the years and benefits from some updated, individually controlled electric heaters in addition to economy 7 heaters (there is gas to the road) and uPVC double glazing. This well laid out and well proportioned home must be viewed to really appreciate how it would lend itself to the next family's needs.
