Full description

An attractive detached Grade II Listed Thatch cottage set in a beautiful garden with outbuilding and central village location. No onward chain.

Cromwell Cottage is a superb detached cottage which as you would expect offers a huge amount of charm and character believed to date back over 450 years. The property is full of many traditional period features to include stunning flagstone floors, character Inglenooks, exposed beams and mullion windows. The property further benefits from a more recent extension which provides a superb family living area with generous farmhouse style kitchen and family garden room.

Internally the accommodation is spacious with well proportioned rooms and good ceiling heights. You are immediately greeted with character as you enter into the reception hall with beautiful flagstones, bay seats and mullion windows. In addition to the two reception rooms both with Inglenook and mullion windows the property also offers a superb farmhouse kitchen, utility and garden room which benefits from fantastic views towards the garden and outbuildings. The kitchen is fitted with a range of traditional units to include an oil fired Aga and separate pantry. A WC/utility room finishes off the ground floor with stairs rising to four excellent double bedrooms, the master bedroom benefiting from a super en-suite with walk-in wardrobe. A family bathroom completes the first floor arrangement.

A wonderful central village location compliments the country cottage with welcoming garden, pedestrian walkway and driveway parking to front. The rear garden is substantial, with level lawn, mature trees and shrub borders. Access is also provided to the rear of the cottage with additional parking a super detached stone and brick outbuilding which offers scope for development but currently providing parking and storage facilities.

Cromwell Cottage sits away from any passing traffic to the centre of the popular village of Leigh which itself lies in the beautiful Dorset countryside to the south of the historic Abbey town of Sherborne and the local regional centre of Yeovil. The village has a church, a garage/shop and a village hall to its centre, while both Sherborne and Yeovil lie within short motoring distance providing between them an excellent range of cultural, recreational and shopping facilities. Sporting, walking and riding opportunities abound within the area with many walks to be had from the village itself while the region is well known for both its public and privately funded schooling. Communication links are good with a railway station at nearby Yetminster on the Weymouth to Bath and Bristol line. A main line station at Sherborne links directly with London Waterloo while road links are along the A303 joined at Wincanton giving swift access to London and the Home Counties along the M3, M25 route.

To the front of the property a driveway leads to the rear of the property and garden with parking for two cars. The rear garden is laid to lawn interspersed with mature trees and shrub borders. The garden stretches back towards the brick and stone outbuilding where parking and storage is available. The outbuilding is approached to the rear by a gated tarmac drive and gravel parking area, light and power is connected to the outbuilding.
