Property Details

3 1 1
A great chance to purchase a delightful grade II listed semi detached cottage in need of some general remedial work and updating, lying within the conservation area of Dorset's smallest town and boasting some lovely views over the Blackmore Vale countryside to the rear. We believe that the cottage dates back to the early 1840's and retains character features such as, stone mullions with arched metal casement windows and seats beneath. There is also the potential for an open fireplace. The property has been a very much cherished family home to our seller for the last forty eight years and benefited in the early years from an extension to the rear providing the bathroom and additional bedroom. The cottage enjoys an extensive plot with plenty of scope to further extend and potential to mark the cottage with one's own designs both inside and out.
