Property details

Inside

Welcome to ‘Anchorage’, a simply delightful 18th Century cottage (not listed) set within one of the most stunning and historic villages in Dorset. The cottage, constructed of the local, golden coloured Abbotsbury stone, oozes old world charm and traditional character, hosting a range of original features such as wrought iron scrolled window handles, exposed roof timbers and plank and batten doors with original latches. ‘Anchorage’ presents an exciting opportunity for restoration and renovation which will create a truly wonderful property that can combine modernisation with historic integrity resulting in a special home that can be enjoyed for years to come. The property comprises a kitchen and two reception rooms on the ground floor, and two good sized, double aspect bedrooms on the first floor, along with a family bathroom. A range of buildings outside offer the opportunity to work from home, or the potential to convert or adapt subject to relevant planning permissions.

‘Anchorage’ can be entered off Back Lane, through the front door which leads into the SITTING ROOM. The living space provides traditional features such as original beams, wooden casement windows, and a fireplace opening which is perfect for those coastal winter evenings. The SNUG leads off the living room, providing a cosy and quiet space in which to sit, read and relax; the room is also equipped with an open fire for those cooler days.

To the rear of the building, leading off the sitting room, a later ‘lean to’ extension comprises a light and airy galley KITCHEN which spans the entire width of the house, providing ample space in which to create a modern and well-equipped space to enjoy cooking, dining and entertaining. The kitchen is conveniently situated to enjoy direct access to the cottage’s garden and outbuildings; perfect for when spending leisure time outdoors with friends and family.

The first floor is accessed by a wooden winder staircase, which leads from the sitting room to the two bedrooms and the family bathroom upstairs. The south facing PRINCIPAL BEDROOM, complete with traditional floorboards, enjoys stunning views across the roof top vista of the village towards the sea. The bright and airy bedroom provides a perfect space in which to unwind after a day walking along the stunning local coastline. BEDROOM TWO enjoys a double aspect, with west facing views towards the historic marketplace and beyond. The room features an unusual, and original chimney stack which contributes greatly to the overall character of the room. The BATHROOM overlooking the gardens to the north, currently comprises a W.C., hand basin and bath, but is spacious enough to accommodate a suite commensurate with modern living requirements.

Outside

The outside space is varied, comprising a range of outbuildings including an attached small barn to the side of the house. An insulated shed provides the option for homeworking, or hobbies and the original privy contributes interesting historic and rustic charm. A paved area directly to the rear of the cottage is ideal for outside dining and entertaining.

The jewel in the crown of this wonderful property is undoubtedly the garden, which gloriously elevates from behind the cottage to allow breath-taking views across the village directly to St. Catherines Chapel and to the sea. The overall setting of the garden makes for the perfect place to enjoy the sun, the atmosphere, and the beautiful surroundings.

Location

Situated to the west of Back Lane in Abbotsbury, ‘Anchorage’ is ideally located for those who wish to explore and enjoy the best of both worlds; the undulating rural landscape of Dorset, and the jaw dropping coastline of the Jurassic Coast. The village of Abbotsbury comprises of mostly 17th, 18th and 19th century buildings, with little modern development, leading to the village being truly characterful and authentic. The village is well served by a village shop and a Post Office and has a small range of renowned pubs. Dorchester lies 9.5 miles to the northeast, and has a range of amenities including cinemas, restaurants, bars, and a mainline rail link to Waterloo
