Number 5 Gold Street is believed to date back to the 18th century and has been lovingly restored and updated by the current owners to make a cosy yet spacious home. It is complimented by a large rear garden and there is a clever decked area to sit on and enjoy fabulous views towards Duncliffe Hill and the Blackmore Vale.
The property is entered through a front door and has doors leading into the front reception or dining room each of which has a fabulous fireplace, the reception room benefitting from a log burner and the dining room having a Bessemer beam as a feature. This room then leads into a country cottage style fitted kitchen with woodblock worktops and a butler sink. The oven integrated into the chimney breast. From here is a door leading into a handy utility room and downstairs cloakroom. Upstairs there are three good sized double bedrooms and a bathroom.
The property is set back from the pavement with a stone pebbled area. The rear garden has been landscaped with various plant and shrub borders. Immediately to the back of the cottage there is a seating area with original flagstones. Steps rise to a lawn that is bordered by shrub and flower beds and with stone steps gently rising up to a stone path leading to a gravelled area, two storage sheds, ideal for garden tools and furniture and steps rising to an ideal timber built viewing platform that has plenty of storage under for logs and other items. Overall the garden is a great size and compliments the house well.

Stalbridge is the smallest town in Dorset. The amenities include a good family run supermarket, Dykes, a well renowned butcher, a post office and number of pubs, a church, a village hall and a primary school, while the historic Abbey own of Sherborne lies within comfortable motoring distance providing, with the local regional centre of Yeovil an excellent range of cultural, recreational and shopping facilities.
