Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Linnets was built by the current owners in 1992 in the grounds of a former orchard of reconstituted stone elevations under a pitched tiled roof and is centrally located within its plot with a southerly aspect commanding far reaching views over rooftops and the Blackmore Vale beyond. The property has a delightful feel and has been in the same ownership for almost 25 years and whilst generally the property is well presented with modern fittings it would benefit from minor redecorations to provide the incoming purchaser with a very comfortable home.

The property is entered via a porch with coats hanging area and glazed door to the entrance hall with three main living rooms leading off as well as the attractive single flight staircase leading to the first floor. A glazed door leads to a very comfortable sitting room with low level stone fireplace with wooden over mantle and Jetmaster gas coal effect fire (open fire could be installed), attractive views over the front and French doors with access to the rear courtyard. Off the entrance hall is a cloakroom/shower room with tiled floor, storage cupboard, Aqualisa shower in tiled cubicle, pedestal wash hand basin, heated towel rail and WC. From the hall a further glazed door leads to the dining room with French doors to the courtyard garden, bookshelves and wood effect flooring and glazed double doors leading back to the kitchen/breakfast room with range of wall and floor units with worktops incorporating Bosch four ring gas hob with extractor above, stainless steel 1.5 bowl sink, attractive tiled splashbacks, large picture window with views over rooftops and the Blackmore Vale beyond, Atag double oven, space and plumbing for fridge and dishwasher. A glazed door from the kitchen breakfast room leads to the utility room with range of wall and floor units, again with worktops and stainless steel sink with plumbing and space for washing machine, half glazed door to the garden and door to separate WC with wash hand basin, WC and housing Glo Worm spacesaver gas boiler.

The first floor landing has two cupboards, one shelved housing hot water tank and doors to the three bedrooms. Bedroom 1 is a very spacious double aspect room with built in cupboards and pedestal wash hand basin. The room also has lovely far reaching views. The 3rd bedroom also has fitted cupboards. The good sized bathroom has bath with attractive wooden panelling, wash hand basin set in vanity unit with wooden cupboards below and further wooden cupboards below tiled top, heated towel rail and WC.

Linnets is approached from Grove Lane initially over a concrete driveway leading to stone pillars with attractive wrought iron double gates leading to the main block paved parking and turning area adjacent to the front door and the double garage. Adjacent to the parking area is an area of lawn and beyond an attractive stone wall with flower and shrub borders.

The main gardens are to the side with attractive paved area beyond a stone retaining wall with deep flower and shrub borders adjacent to an area of level lawn with a number of trees and bordered by beech hedge and timber fencing. Behind the garage is a timber garden shed. To the rear of the property is a deep paved terrace area with further side area of lawn with shrub borders leading back to the front of the property. Of particular note is the relative seclusion of the gardens and the views in this peaceful part of Stalbridge and they form a delightful setting for the property.
