Property details

Inside

A stunning Edwardian property built in 1906 with far-reaching rural views. Sensitively maintained and presented to blend contemporary living with period character and charm, this generous semi-detached cottage includes garaging and stables, with approximately ¼ Acre Gardens, including a mini-orchard and paddock, and the assignment of additional grazing land/paddocks (approx 1.5 Acres) on an 3 year block-lease from Dorset Council for £950.

Backing on to the paddocks, entrance to the property is gained via a five-bar gate to the rear, beyond which is ample parking and the outbuildings. A stable door opens to a LOBBY/BOOT ROOM - a useful space to keep separate the mess of the outdoors from impinging on the farm-style COUNTRY KITCHEN/ DINING ROOM. This is a sociable space, able to accommodate a large table and chairs, has a generous window seat with views of the paddocks. At the other end, the kitchen area offers ample worktops, plus floor and wall mounted units. Further benefits include a sink, 5-burner gas hob, Electrolux oven, combination microwave/oven, plus space and plumbing for additional white goods. The UTILITY ROOM includes a sink with drainer, additional work tops and cupboards, and access to the CLOAKROOM with W.C and wash hand basin.

The SITTING ROOM is a warm, welcoming, space with an inset wood burner with brick surround and timber mantle. There is a convenient GARDEN ROOM with double doors opening to the exterior. This room forms a charming SNUG, though works equally well as an OFFICE or additional bedroom if desired.

Completing the ground floor, there are TWO DOUBLE BEDROOMS which can flexibly be configured into additional reception rooms if desired.

From the sitting room, stairs rise to the first floor, which contains the PRINCIPAL BEDROOM; a good sized room with far reaching views and walk-in wardrobe. The remaining DOUBLE BEDROOM is situated to the rear, also enjoying the rural vista. Lastly on this floor is the FAMILY BATHROOM with W.C., wash hand basin, bath and separate shower cubicle.

Outside

As appealing as the property is, the location is worthy of special note. Backing on to pastureland and enjoying views of Hod Hill, there are numerous trailways and walks, all on your doorstep. There is space for PARKING for several vehicles, a SINGLE GARAGE/WORKSHOP with light and power, TWO STABLES with water tap, light, power and water trough, and additional OUTBUILDINGS. The generous garden is primarily laid to lawn, with a delightful mini-orchard and further paddock. There is an additional garden area abutting the front and side of the property for entertaining and relaxation.

Possibly the most unexpected benefit of this property are the PADDOCKS AND GRAZING LAND which abuts the garden, with an ongoing historic lease agreement from the Dorset Council to use with the property for approx. £850 per annum.
