'In a prime village location', a lovely period house together with large walled garden, peacefully located backing on to Stalbridge Park and within easy walking distance of core facilities.
Stapleford House has stone elevations with brick dressings, a principal façade with double hung sash casement windows and some sealed unit double glazing. In many ways it is the epitome of houses built in the 19th Century, with good fenestration, well proportioned rooms, window seats and flagstone floors. It is listed Grade II, and in recent years has undergone a programme of modernisation and refurbishment. The ground floor is approached via a flagstone floored hall with a cloaks and utility room to one side. There are two reception rooms, a well proportioned drawing room with a wood burning stove, and views down Gold Street, and a sitting room, ideal as a Childrens TV room or maybe a separate study/winter snug. The kitchen/breakfast room is the hub of the house with its Quarry tiled floor, granite work tops, plantation shutters, and a two oven gas fired Aga.
On the first floor, the principal bedroom has an en-suite dressing room and lovely bathroom. There are three more bedrooms served by a second bathroom which is also well fitted and includes a separate shower. Two of the bedrooms on the front of the house enjoy views down Gold Street.
Solid gates open to a parking and turning area with a drive off which leads to additional parking and turning where there is space for garaging subject to planning consents. The garden is largely walled, and is an oasis of tranquillity. It comprises a paved barbeque and entertainment area, shaded by a mature ash tree which overlooks the principal sweep of lawn studded with shrubs and established trees. The setting might be described as lightly wooded, as it backs on to Stalbridge Park. There are views from the garden over the Blackmore Vale to Duncliffe Hill. The garden is served by two garden stores, and there is a door set in the rear wall which opens out directly onto Church Path connecting to the church, dog walks in Stalbridge Park and the Stalbridge recreation area.
