Full description

A great opportunity to purchase this extremely deceptive terraced home with scope to enhance and with development potential. The property occupies a high street position boasting some countryside views in the distance and amounts to about 1969.8 sq feet of internal accommodation. Part of the property was at one time the Stalbridge branch of Lloyds bank with an apartment above. In about 2001 the bank part of the building was changed into residential use, incorporated into the apartment and has been the family home to our seller since this time and before. The property offers well proportioned rooms and presents the opportunity to enhance as it is now in need of some general maintenance and updating. The property benefits from gas fired central heating via radiators and retains a host of character features such as sash windows with seats below, timber ceiling beams and a wonderful stone inglenook fireplace with Bressumer beam. There is also scope for an income or to provide for a dependent relative.

In brief, the accommodation on the ground floor consists of main entrance hall with access the main building and to a studio which used to be the manager's office and has a separate shower room and kitchen. The main building has a welcoming L shaped entrance hall, sitting room with high sash window and inglenook fireplace, dining room, study, kitchen/breakfast room, utility and a wet room. On the first floor there is the family bathroom and four double sized bedrooms, three with fitted wardrobes and the master enjoying a delightful far reaching rural view. Outside there are good sized gardens offering a blank canvas for one's own design.

It is vital to view the property to truly appreciate just what is on offer as the frontage does not portray what lies beyond.
