Shillingstone is a popular and sought after village benefitting from a new Co-op, petrol station, pub, primary school, village hall, sports field,
Trailway and railway station museum. The market town of Blandform Forum is close by boasting a good range of shops, banks, schools,
hospital, health centres and leisure centre. Easy access to the larger towns of Bournemouth, Poole, Salisbury and the County town of
Dorchester. Regular rail services available from Poole and Salisbury to London Waterloo. The area is well served by a good variety of
Independent Schools at Bryanston, Clayesmore, Hanford, Knighton House and Sandroyd. Sporting facilities include water sports along the
Dorset coastline, golf at Ashley Wood, Rushmore and Broadstone and horse racing at Salisbury, Wincanton and Exeter.
With versatile space, suited to many options, Stour House offers a rarely available opportunity in a sought after village. Coming to the
market for the first time in 70 years, it has been used as a single family home, and then a family home with a shop and granny flat, before
being converted into its current configuration. This substantial, detached property offers well-proportioned, spacious accommodation over
three floors. It has been successfully let for several years, and currently comprises a shop (previously accommodation) and two generous
flats. The remainder of the property offers the potential to develop further flats, subject to the necessary planning permission. The current
owners have previously achieved planning permission. The property is of brick elevations under a tiled roof and benefits from ample
parking and a lawned garden. EARLY VIEWING IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
