Tenure: Freehold

Idyllic country retreat. A magical Grade II Listed 'chocolate box' thatched cottage set in a timeless rural hamlet in West Dorset. 2 Reception, 2/3 Bedrooms. Charming cottage gardens. Oil fired CH.

This enchanting detached period cottage is solidly built with massive stone walls set beneath a main thatched roof, with a small tiled extension at the rear and has recently undergone a programme of renovation. Improvement works have included re-wiring, a new central heating and hot water system with new boiler and modern oil tank, refitted kitchen and bathroom, new log burner and chimney liner, partial re-thatching and redecorating throughout. There is also planning and listed building consent to extend the kitchen into the garden room. This is now an ideal opportunity for a purchaser to apply their own personal taste to create an idyllic country home.

Hewood is an ancient rural hamlet tucked away on the Dorset/Somerset border and surrounded by stunning traditional countryside of rolling hills, small farms and woodland. The neighbouring village of Thorncombe offers local amenities that include an award winning post office/shop and Church whilst the towns of Chard, Crewkerne and Axminster are all within easy reach. The historic country house at Forde Abbey is within 1 mile and National Trust land at Lamberts Castle and Pilsdon Pen is also close by. The World Heritage Jurassic Coast is some 12 miles to the South at Lyme Regis.

The property is set in the most delightful cottage garden, abundantly planted and well maintained with colourful herbaceous borders, some fine specimen shrubs and lawned areas. The rear garden enjoys far reaching country views together with a secret 'sun trap' patio.
