Built to a very high specification in 2008 by Bellway Homes this is an immaculately presented four bedroom house with an abundance of light throughout. Predominantly constructed from stone under a tiled roof, the accommodation is set out over two floors. Access to the property is either via the back door into the kitchen or through the front door which opens into a large hall from which most of the rooms can be found. The sitting room, which opens out into a bright Garden Room, has a stone fireplace surrounding a wood burner and French doors leading out onto the rear garden. A private study with front aspect provides the perfect, quiet space to read or perhaps work from home. A beautiful, fully fitted kitchen with wall and base units under a granite worktop, integrated appliances, gas hob, double oven and stone floor opens out into a large dining area providing the ideal space to entertain family and friends. A cloakroom, perfect for when guests visit and some useful under stairs storage, completes the picture on the ground floor. Stairs lead up to a central landing from which four bedrooms, all with built in wardrobes and decorated in a contemporary style, can be found. An excellent family bathroom with separate shower cubicle services three of these bedrooms, whilst the principal bedroom enjoys its own ensuite shower room. A particularly useful airing cupboard provides storage for linen, whilst a hatch to the boarded-out loft provides additional storage. Outside The house, which feels very bright and open, is surrounded by garden on three sides, which is enclosed by close boarded fencing and a stone wall. To the rear the garden is mainly laid to lawn but with a charming, paved area with timber pergola over, providing the perfect spot for some al fresco dining. In addition, there are raised timber vegetable beds, paved pathways and a water feature, along with various plants and trees including Cherry, Myrtle and Maple. With outdoor power sockets, a water tap and pedestrian access directly into the garage, this is a very well-considered and practical garden. A paved pathway leads to a side gate through which one can access the front of the double garage and gated driveway parking. All things considered this is a very well presented, excellently laid out family house in a particularly convenient location, close to all the amenities of Stalbridge. Location The property lies close to the centre of what is reputedly the smallest town in Dorset, with a population of around 2,500. As a result, it provides an excellent mix of amenities such as the award-winning supermarket, a community run library, a butcher, hairdresser, post office, dental surgery, public house, a highly regarded primary school and a number of takeaway shops. Further afield, places such as Sturminster Newton, Sherborne and Shaftesbury widen still the offerings. Transport links from here are excellent with mainline railway services from Templecombe, with its regular service to London Waterloo, as well as the A303 nearby.
