Property Details

2 1 1
A charming and quirky two bedroom mid terrace stone cottage, presented to the market with the advantage of no onward chain and offering the chance to finish off to one's own style and design. The property has a Grade II listed status and boasts a prime location, just a few steps from the high street of one of Dorset's smallest towns. Stalbridge caters well for everyday needs with an award winning supermarket, family run butchers, post office and highly rated primary school. There is also a community run library, public house, building suppliers and a variety of takeaway shops. We believe that the cottage dates to the 18th century, retaining character features such as cottage style windows with black furniture and deep window sills, fireplace with wood burner and some exposed floorboards. Satisfying modern day expectations, there is electric heating from a boiler that was renewed a year ago, some double glazing to the rear and secondary glazing to the front. The roof was also replaced about fifteen years ago. The cottage provides open plan ground floor accommodation with flexible room usage on the first floor. There is also the option to develop the attic room, subject to the necessary permissions. A viewing is absolutely necessary to see how one could make it home, to experience the views and the delightful and magical garden.
