Property Details

4 2 2
A fabulous opportunity to purchase a bright and roomy terraced character home arranged over three floors, situated in the favoured Gold Street area of the town and within the conservation area. The property is just a short walk to the high street of one of Dorset's smallest towns, which has an award winning independent supermarket, family run butchers, post office and dentist surgeries. There is also a highly rated primary school. The property retains many character features, such as beautiful sash windows with some windows having a seat underneath, Victorian style fireplaces, picture rails and exposed floorboards. To cater for modern day expectations the property benefits from gas fired central heating and also enjoys some delightful rural views in the distance. The cottage has been the very much loved and enjoyed home to our selling family for the last two years and during this time it has been well maintained and the garden has benefited from a make over. The property must be viewed to really appreciate the well proportioned rooms and layout as well as its location.
