A charming detached stone cottage with two double bedrooms, presented to the market with the advantage of no onward chain and boasting some fabulous far reaching views over the beautiful Blackmore Vale countryside. The property sits in a quiet country lane where town and country merge on the fringe of one of Dorset's smallest towns, 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. Over the last nineteen months the cottage has recently been improved with the addition of fitted wardrobes in bedroom one, extra cupboards have been added in the kitchen plus new work surfaces and splash backs as well as some built in appliances installed and a re-decoration throughout plus new flooring has been laid to the entrance hall, kitchen and conservatory. Outside a log and bin store have been added. 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 and a lovely brick arch over the kitchen window. The cottage makes a fabulous home and will satisfy many potential buyers' needs including those looking to downsize, a bolt hole from a hectic working week and an investment for the rental market or even holiday letting or Airbnb. The cottage has a terrific ambience and must be viewed to truly appreciate the interior as the frontage does not reflect the size of the accommodation.
