Property Details

2 1 1
An endearing stone cottage offering well proportioned, bright living accommodation and ideally situated just a hop,skip and jump to the centre of Dorset's smallest town. We believe that the cottage dates to the 1600's and retains a wealth of characterful features, which include cottage style pane glass windows with deep sills, window seats, exposed ceiling beams and a wonderful inglenook fireplace with Bressumer beam. Catering for modern day expectations, the cottage benefits from gas fired central heating from a recently installed combination boiler. Over the last few years the property has also benefited from some new carpets, some general maintenance and a redecoration. The outside space has also been transformed into a pretty cottage style garden. An early viewing is highly recommended to avoid missing out on the opportunity to own this delightful home.
