Ryme Intrinseca, Sherborne - £250,000 For Sale

Property Details

2 1 2
A fantastic opportunity to purchase an attractive end of terraced stone cottage style home with two generously sized bedrooms, enjoying some wonderful views to the side and situated in the sought after and tranquil village of Ryme Intrinseca. This pretty village is renown for its interesting name and mention in the poem 'Dorset' by John Betjeman. The village also boasts an historic church dedicated to St Hippolyte and dating to the 13th century. The property forms part of a small courtyard development of eight properties, which we believe were converted in the late 1970's with Wriggle Cottage being a former garage. This lovely home retains character features such as exposed timbers, window with beautiful stone arch above and our vendor has installed a wood burning stove to complete the cottage feel. Catering for today's expectations, there is uPVC double glazing and electric heating via radiators. The property offers well proportioned rooms with scope to mark to one's own taste and will tick many potential buyers requirements. The cottage would make a great first time buy, an ideal retreat from a busy working week, lock up and leave UK base or even as an investment for holiday lets or the rental market. A viewing is a must to appreciate not just the property but also the location, which is just a mile from Yetminster where there is a range of amenities, including a church, public house, village hall, health centre, village store, a train halt and a primary school. Sherborne is only five miles away.
