Sitting at the end of a no through lane is this much improved and extended Victorian cottage with countryside views, three double bedrooms, large garden and situated in the sought after Enmore Green area of the hilltop town of Shaftesbury.

There is a grade II listed church nearby and the town centre is about half a mile away where there is a range amenities. This delightful cottage dates to around 1875, reputedly a farm worker cottage and has been a much loved and enjoyed home to our sellers for the last five years. During this time the property has been very much improved with a large extension to the rear that offers flexible room usage as well as having a complete overhaul to the original part of the building.

The extension benefits from a wonderful kitchen/dining room with vaulted ceiling, views over the garden and countryside. Some of the other rooms will be left unfinished for the potential purchaser to add their own touch. Viewing is vital to appreciate this home for its size and location.
