Tenure: Freehold

A detached 3-4 bedroom character house with off-road parking within walking distance of the shops and amenities in the conservation area in the heart of the town.

1 Grove Lane is a period detached house with origins believed to date back 300 years. The house has stone elevations under a pitched tiled roof and is found in an extremely convenient location in the conservation area in the heart of the town. From the front door the accommodation comprises hall with ground floor bathroom off. A door opens into the dining room which is a 23' room with staircase to the first floor, opening to the kitchen and door to sitting room. This is a lovely room with dual aspect, open fire, exposed beams and window seats. The kitchen is an L-shaped room with a range of units, back door to outside and second staircase to the first floor. This staircase leads to bedrooms 3 and 4. The staircase from the dining room leads to a first floor landing with door to the master bedroom and en-suite bathroom with corner shower and bath. The stairs also continue to the second floor and an attic room which although does not have a door has been used as a double bedroom. Outside there is a front garden, parking space, workshop and outbuilding.
The property is approached from Grove Lane on to a shared drive leading to a private off-road parking space for one car. There is a neat front garden enclosed by a stone wall with lawn and flower and shrub borders. A brick built outbuilding with tiled roof makes a useful store with power and light and there is also a timber workshop. The old stone privy is currently used as a tool store.

Stalbridge is Dorset’s smallest town boasting a busy traditional High Street with many shops and businesses including post office, butcher, hairdresser, doctors, 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.
