Tenure: Freehold

The Old Bank House is an historic and important detached Grade II Listed Georgian town house standing within the precincts of the Church. With a secluded walled garden, garage and parking.

This fine Georgian House was rebuilt after the great fire in 1731. Part of the former Grammar School dating from 1563 remains, fronting Church lane at ground level. The house is Grade II Listed with brick elevations and a tiled main roof. The impressive porch has a segmental hood and square wooden columns.

Named after its use as the old Savings Bank established in 1818 and converted to a Doctor's House by Henry Spooner in 1938. The Doctor's surgery continued to exist until the last incumbants Dr David & Dr Joan Davies retired in 1993. They enjoyed their retirement in The Old Bank House, Dr David serving as Mayor three times and honoured as a Freeman of the town. Dr Joan served the town in a number of capacities.

The surgery and premises still remain on the ground and basement levels offering potential for commercial use. This accommodation would suit an art collector or musician.

The residential accommodation is both spacious and adaptable. The whole is now in need of some modernisation and refurbishment but offers a unique opportunity to establish a fine town centre home where business or life style interests could also be accommodated.

The house is elevated with a fine view of the Church of St Peter and St Paul. Adjoining the garden is The Old Bath House which also fronts Church Walk. The Market Place is close by and commercial and vehicular access is from Church Lane. There are views from various levels and aspects over the garden the townscape to the countryside beyond.

Blandford Forum is an interesting Georgian market town in the heart of Dorset surrounded by open countryside. There are a range of shopping, commercial and sporting facilities. There is access to the larger towns of Poole, 15 miles, Bournemouth, 22 miles and Salisbury with main line station, 22 miles.
