4 Bedroom Detached House For Sale

An historic Grade II listed former school, converted to residential circa 1977, recently re-decorated and offering spacious accommodation, mature gardens and spectacular Blackmore Vale views.

The Old School is built of local stone with a slate roof and stone mullioned windows and the rarely used front door has a Gothic pointed arch porch as notable architectural aspects and has been recently redecorated to a high standard.

A trio of fine reception rooms are central to the house with a dining hall, adjacent to the kitchen, that leads to the sitting room and garden room beyond. The sitting room has a central feature fireplace and a study area to one side. The garden room was added in 1995 and takes full advantage of the easterly views over the Blackmore Vale and beyond. The kitchen has a range of wall and floor units with space for all the usual appliances and space for a breakfast table.

Stairs lead to the 4th bedroom that is away from the other bedrooms and again takes in those views to the rear. A useful and large store room is opposite with possible scope for skylights, subject to the necessary consents. By the back door is a shower room with a utility room next door and storage cupboards including a larder.

Back through the dining hall, a long corridor has the three main bedrooms all quietly to the rear of the house and a family bathroom at the end. An intriguing store room is currently accessed from the dining hall but lends itself to increasing the size of bedroom 1, possibly. There is a disused 'old door' from the store room with external stone steps to the garden.

The garage hosts a games room below it, accessed down a path from the garden room of the main house. Being nearly 36 square meters this lends itself to lots of uses and currently has a low built partition dividing the room up naturally. Above the garage are 12 solar panels being on the southerly aspect of the roof.

Stalbridge is Dorset’s smallest town boasting a busy traditional High Street with many shops and businesses including post office, butcher, hairdresser, dentist, cycle shop and busy local supermarket. Many businesses are second or third generation family run and help to provide an excellent community which also has a church and primary school. The market town of Sturminster Newton is approximately 6 miles to the south and the larger towns of Shaftesbury, Sherborne and Wincanton are within a 20 minute drive. Road links are excellent with the A30 at Henstridge and A303 at Wincanton and Templecombe (3.5 miles) has a mainline railway to London Waterloo. The surrounding area has an abundance of good quality schools and some of the finest countryside with excellent walking, cycling and riding. The coast at Bournemouth/Poole is within an hour's drive.
