Old Stables is a charming property with a wonderful feeling of times gone by when the property would have been part of the Eldridge Pope Estate and would have seen horse drawn coaches, with an old brick trough and original herring bone brick courtyard acting as a reminder of its past.

Being sold now for the first time in some 40 years this is a wonderful opportunity to own a unique property nestled close to the town centre.

Perhaps not unexpectedly, the house would benefit from some gentle modernisation. The layout is adaptable with two flights of stairs leading to each part of the upstairs, other architectural features include some lovely arched windows, decorative brickwork, date plaque, and on the roof is a small tower with dovecote finial with weather vane.

The accommodation, in brief, comprises; a welcoming entrance hall with under stair storage and a ground floor shower room with WC. Leading off the hall there is a kitchen fitted with a range of cupboards and drawers, ample work surfaces with sink and drainer, there is space for a range style cooker and white goods. There is a breakfast room leading to a fabulous dining room with high vaulted ceilings, patio doors with remote awning and stairs rising to a mezzanine landing.

The living room is a generous room with a substantial stone built chimney and raised hearth with open fire. There is a ground floor bathroom with suite to include, bath, bidet, WC and basin and a ground floor bedroom, a double room with ample fitted bedroom furniture providing storage.

Upstairs there is a lovely room used as a sitting room with high vaulted ceilings and exposed ‘A’ beams, a small study/work room and a good size double bedroom also with vaulted ceilings, Velux roof window and vanity basin.

In the rear portion of the house are two further double bedrooms and a shower room.

The property benefits from an adjoining utility room, brick built with space and plumbing for washing machine and tumble dryer, sink and drainer. Gas fired boiler.

There is an attached single garage with through access and off road parking for a number of vehicles.

Outside the gardens are well stocked with a range of mature shrubs and trees, the rear garden is partly walled with a lawn and well-stocked shrub and flower borders, and there is a garden shed.

This family home is within walking distance of Dorchester town centre. The county town provides a comprehensive range of shopping and recreational facilities including a leisure centre, library, doctor’s surgery, restaurants, cafe/bars, and a cinema.

The property falls within the catchment area of several highly regarded schools.

There are numerous sports clubs around the town including cricket, rugby, football, tennis, and golf. There are also many footpaths and bridleways across the beautiful surrounding countryside. The Jurassic Coastline is a few miles to the south with some sandy beaches, outstanding walks and the opportunity to enjoy a number of water sports activities.

Dorset County Hospital is within easy reach as are Dorchester South and West train stations both providing services to London Waterloo and Bristol Temple Meads respectively.
