Property Details

3 1 2
A bright and roomy Grade II listed character cottage that oozes charm and has a wealth of character features, with three good sized bedrooms, situated in one of Dorset's largest and most popular villages. The property is situated in a lane-side position and within reach of all the village's amenities, which include a shop that caters well for everyday essentials, public house, village hall and primary school. There is also a large recreational ground, which hosts many events. We believe that the cottage dates to around 1812 but could be even older and boasts original features, such as Blue Lias flagstone flooring, leaded light windows - some with seats below and original shutters. There is also a fabulous inglenook fireplace with Bressumer beam, exposed ceiling beams and original floorboards. Catering to modern day expectations the cottage benefits from oil fired central heating to radiators. During the course of ownership our sellers have updated the cottage with new work surface in the utility, new central heating programmer, some new flooring and a re-decoration throughout. A viewing is absolutely vital to truly appreciate what this special home has to offer the next lucky owner, as well as its' environment.
