Property Details

2 3 2
An endearing semi detached stone cottage, offering bright and spacious adaptable accommodation of over 1000 square feet (93 sq.m) with two double bedrooms, situated in a rural but not isolated location with views over countryside and just over a mile from the historic hilltop town of Shaftesbury. The town has a selection of independent shops and chain stores and a range of entertainment venues plus schooling for all ages as well as doctor and dental surgeries. We believe that the cottage dates to the late 1800s and over the last year has benefitted from some tender, loving care and general maintenance. The cottage provides stylish contemporary living combined with old world charm and benefits from uPVC double glazing and oil fired central heating whilst retaining character details, which include exposed stone walls and feature ceiling beams, deep window sills and an open fireplace. The kitchen has recently been revamped and has a range of bespoke wood units plus a new induction hob has been fitted and a useful study/bedroom three has been created. The outside has also benefited from an overhaul and has a new decked seating area. This delightful cottage must be viewed to truly appreciate the ambience it has to offer and how it would easily satisfy many potential buyers needs. An early viewing is strongly recommended to avoid missing out on the chance to make it your home.
