Property Details

4 1 1
A charming detached character cottage with four double bedrooms, enjoying a lane side position with views over the beautiful Blackmore Vale countryside and located in one of Dorset's largest villages. The cottage lies within a short walk of the village pub, the shop and the primary school are also close by. We believe that the property is around two hundred years old with an extension to the rear in 1999 and has been the much loved and enjoyed home to our sellers for the last fifteen years. During this time, the cottage has been exceptionally well maintained and improved with a new modern and stylish bathroom suite, new cottage style windows to the front of the cottage and a new oil fired central heating boiler. The property has also been redecorated and new carpeting laid. In addition, the cottage retains many character features, such as, windows with shutters, deep sills and window seats, exposed stone wall, fireplaces and wood flooring. The property offers well proportioned rooms that will certainly go a long way to meet many potential buyers, from those looking for a more rural lifestyle and equally for those looking to move to a larger village home. The cottage must be viewed to really appreciate its space, both inside and out, as well as its location, which is just five miles to the market town of Sturminster Newton and twenty minutes drive to the historic town of Sherborne where there is a mainline train station. The vendors upward chain is complete.
