Property Details

4 2 3
Offered with no onward chain and available from October 2021. A rare opportunity to purchase a charming detached cottage that just oozes kerb appeal with four double bedrooms and boasting an idyllic and peaceful lane side position in the pretty and desirable village of Glanvilles Wootton. Part of the cottage served as the village post office until September 2000 when it closed and in recent years has gone through a complete transformation and renovation with a sympathetic extension to the rear that has almost doubled its' size. The current sellers have created a stylish, contemporary property, where old world charm sits alongside modern day expectations and although it has been run as a very popular and successful holiday let, the cottage is equally a great family home for those seeking a country life style. The cottage retains character features, such as exposed timber lintels and fireplaces as well as deep window sill and cottage style pane glass windows in uPVC or sustainable wood framed. The property also has oil fired central heating to radiators, fully fitted kitchen with built in appliances and up to date bathroom suites. This delightful home must be viewed to truly appreciate what it has to offer with its bright and spacious interior, but also the outside space, which adjoins Dorset's beautiful countryside and its location. Glanvilles Wootten boasts a village hall and a beautiful parish church dating back to the 14th century plus a tennis court for community use.. Sherborne is about seven miles away, here there is a good selection of branded and individual shops along with a variety of public houses and restaurants plus a mainline train station and schooling for all ages.
