The house is situated in a delightful semi rural non estate location in Stapehill Road opposite the exclusive development also by Ankers & Rawlings known as 'Stapehill Abbey'. Stapehill Abbey is set within extensive grounds of approx 70 acres incorporating beautifully maintained landscaped ornamental gardens with feature fountain and lake. There is the option for the new owners of 2 St Stephens Cottages to be able to enjoy these beautiful gardens and idyllic lifestyle setting for a sum of just £500 pa.
Finished in virtually new condition, the house will feature an Open Plan kitchen diner that then flows round into the family/breakfast room where bi fold doors invite you out to the generous rear garden. The cosy living room enjoys a dual aspect and also benefits from patio doors that lead out to the garden. Finally on the ground floor is a large double bedroom with an adjacent downstairs family bathroom. Upstairs you can find three further good sized bedrooms served by a second family bathroom and the principal bedroom also benefits from an ensuite shower room.
The house sits on a very generous plot of 0.3 of an acre. The rear garden is a particular feature of the property measuring 120ft long and being 50ft wide with new large Indian stone patio and lawn. The garden is mainly fenced but there is a part which is post and rail to make the most of the view over the open greenbelt land behind.
To the side of the house there is also an extensive gravel driveway providing parking for numerous vehicles with a large double carport.
Finally the house enjoys a unique non-estate location offering semi rural living but located conveniently close to both Ferndown and Wimborne and within short walking distance of a good local pub/restaurant and excellent dog walking.
