Property Details

2 2 2
A charming detached stone cottage with two double bedrooms, presented to the market with no onward chain and situated in a quiet country lane where town and country merge and boasting some fabulous far reaching views over the beautiful Blackmore Vale countryside. The property lies on the fringe of one of Dorset's smallest town, which offers a range of day to day facilities including an award winning supermarket, family run butchers, post office and highly rated primary school, as well as a dentist, community run library and entertainment venues. This delightful character home is believed to have been an old coach house that was converted many years ago into a residential dwelling. The cottage has been held by the selling family for nearly eight years, during this time it has been well maintained and improved with a replacement conservatory and additional work surfaces in the kitchen and utility as well as creating a permanent double bedroom. This lovely home also benefits from uPVC double glazed windows with an attractive double bar inlay, gas fired central heating and character features, which include open fireplaces, deep windows sills and window seat plus exposed timbers. The cottage makes a great first time home, downsize in retirement or even a bolt hole from a hectic working week and must be viewed to truly appreciate what it has to offer as the frontage does not reflect the size of the accommodation.
