Property Details

2 1 2
A captivating end of terraced modern cottage bursting with charisma and located in the heart of one of Dorset's most popular villages, which boasts a doctors' surgery with pharmacy, two convenience stores, one with post office, a butchers, hairdresser and carpet shop, as well as a public house. The plaque on the wall says, "This is a small house with a big welcome" - big welcome, definitely, but don't be fooled by the small. Once inside, this delightful property offers contemporary open plan living space which the sellers have imaginatively created from part of a former doctors' surgery and finished to an exacting standard with Oak shelving, Oak work surfaces in the kitchen, Slate flooring, as well as stylish shower room suites and country style kitchen units. The property benefits from Upvc double glazing and has gas fired central heating via radiators from a combination boiler. The cottage is currently used a very successful holiday let that is booked well in advance - we are looking for an owner who is wishing to invest initially rather than someone looking for a main residence. Viewing is essential to appreciate the ambience and size of this charming cottage.
