Owners Comments 
"The property although sitting in the centre of the village is secluded, private and quiet. It has deceptively more garden than seems, as it wraps around the barn and includes the front tarmac area and drive for plenty of parking. The interior lends itself to many uses. Although a fabulous family home, there is enough room for additional ventures; a place for creativity and artistic imagination. The current owners have a workshop area, to restore and upcycle vintage furniture. All subject to planning permissions, the property has other diversification potential including commercial ventures such as retail, catering, arts and crafts, as has been the case in the past; not to mention the musical acoustics used by the previous owners who were also certified for B & B. The property could potentially be divided into 2 dwellings; all potential income.”

A porch leads through to the entrance hall which has plenty of space for cloaks and boots, has access to a downstairs cloakroom and splits both left and right to different accommodation areas of the property. The Sitting/Dining Room is a feature room of the property with original character features, exposed stone, timbered ceilings and triple aspect windows & tiled flooring with multi fuel burner fireplace. Stairs from this room rise to the first floor Master Bedroom Quarters. The Kitchen is located to the rear of the property with large glazed windows looking out and French doors opening out to the private rear garden. A range of farmhouse style wall and base units with eye level double oven, sink with mixer tap over, four point induction hob, space for a fridge freezer and plumbing for a washing machine. The kitchen is complimented by large flagstone flooring.From the entrance hallway, doors lead to double bedrooms two and three, which both benefit from en-suite facilities....

The rear garden is divided into three main areas and mostly laid to pave or gravel with mature shrubs and trees surrounding. There is a small section of lawn and multiple areas for seating to allow for al fresco garden. There is a shed to the side of the property and another store for garden tools and parking for several vehicles to the front of the property with some more mature shrub areas surrounding with gated access.

West Stafford lies approximately 2 miles east of the county town of Dorchester and the village offers a variety of amenities including a beautiful village church, village hall which provides various events, a popular and characterful public house which is considered to be a very popular family eatery and also offers beautiful country walks within the local countryside.
