Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Detached 4 bedroom village house, in outstanding order throughout, with wonderful far reaching views, a double garage and a summerhouse.

The cottage is believed to originally date back to the early 19th Century and has rendered elevations under a thatched roof. The property was extended in the 1990s and again within the last 5 years to create some well-rounded flexible accommodation. In recent years, at the same time as extending the property and building a detached garage, the property has been extensively refurbished taking in all the high cost items of the property to include the kitchen, three shower rooms, under floor heating on the ground floor (with the exception of the sitting room) and the redecoration of the property throughout.

The accommodation is arranged on the ground floor with a large kitchen/dining room to the front and centre, beyond which there is a large conservatory.

To the front of the cottage the kitchen window takes in some tremendous views over the Marshwood Vale, while to the rear there are views from the conservatory and the dining area over the gardens. The kitchen is equipped in some style with a pantry to one corner. To the centre of the house there is a useful utility room and a cloakroom to one side of the hallway with an entrance porch to the other. To the other end of the house there is an attractive sitting room that stretches from the front to the rear of the property centred around a fireplace equipped with a multi-fuel burner. The floors on the ground floor have been organised to take full advantage of the zoned under floor heating and are for the most part laid to Indian limestone tumbled flagstones and ceramic tile with the exception being the sitting room that is laid to carpet. Upstairs there are four good bedrooms, three of which have extensive built in wardrobe space, two of which have en-suite shower rooms with the two remaining bedrooms having use of a family shower room. The period feel of the property is complemented by both the hardwood windows and the painted framed, ledged and braced doors, while it should be noted that the property although a period one is not Grade II Listed and therefore can be adapted in the future by the owner. The property has oil fired heating, double glazing, and is hard-wired for both smoke and heat alarms.

The cottage lies on the north side of Whitchurch Canonicorum in an elevated position with some outstanding views over the Marshwood Vale. The village itself is a particularly attractive and popular one with a public house, a church and a village hall to its centre and is conveniently located midway between the vibrant town of Bridport to the east and the equally popular town of Axminster to the west. Local shopping needs can be catered for at the nearby farm shop in Morcombelake, while Axminster, Bridport and the county town of Dorchester lie within comfortable motoring distance providing between them an excellent range of cultural, recreational and shopping facilities. Sporting, walking and riding opportunities abound within the area while the Jurassic coastline lies nearby and is easily accessible. The region is well known for its public and privately funded schooling, while communication links are good with mainline stations at Axminster and Dorchester and road links along the A35 joined at Morcombelake.
