Property Details

4 3 1
A charming semi detached stone cottage offering adaptable accommodation and four good sized bedrooms. The property sits in grounds extending to about a third of an acre, backing onto fields and enjoying a peaceful laneside location in the small village of Mappowder, which lies on the edge of the Blackmore Vale. The village boasts a very pretty church, delightful stone cottages and a listed K6 telephone kiosk, facilities are available about one and half miles away in Hazelbury Bryan where there is a public house, village store and primary school. We believe that the cottage dates to the mid 19th century and formed part of the Digby Estate and was used as workers accommodation. The property has dated from an historic sympathetic two storey extension, which nearly doubled its original size. The cottage has been a very much loved and enjoyed home to our seller for the last eight years, during this time it as been extremely well maintained and improved with some replacement windows and new electrics, ceilings and walls. The kitchen units have also been replace with a range of country style floor and larder cupboards with granite work surfaces, new flooring has been laid and an inglenook fireplace revealed. Outside, a timber garage and summerhouse have been added. A viewing is an absolute must to truly appreciate this lovely home and its environment.
