Full description

A stylish Grade II listed townhouse situated in one of the most sought after areas of Sturminster Newton and within the conservation area, walking distance of the town centre shops and with some beautiful countryside walks on the doorstep. We believe that the property dates to around 1800 and may possibly have been part of a school house - although this cannot be corroborated (source - listed buildings register). It has recently been re-modelled and refurbished to transform it into an individual chic and contemporary home offering flexible living arrangements over three floors. The property boasts many character features, such as, stone mullions with leaded light windows, sash windows, some deep window sills and exposed floor boards. This charming property would make an ideal bolt hole as a weekend retreat, as a lock up and leave with its easy maintenance garden or equally for someone looking for a sole residence with that special something!

The ground floor accommodation consists of good sized light and welcoming reception hall, double sized bedroom or sitting room and a smart bathroom with utility cupboard. On the first floor the landing has double doors into a large triple aspect room currently used as a combined kitchen and dining room, however there is sufficient space for a sitting area too. This room also boasts a fireplace with burner and door opening to a balcony with steps leading down into the courtyard. On the top floor there is another double sized bedroom with fitted wardrobes and an en-suite shower room. Outside there is a paved enclosed courtyard which opens to the tarmacadam parking bay where there is a log store, bin store and timber storage shed. Viewing is an absolute must to truly appreciate this home with a difference.
