The Property
Mary Tudor Cottage is situated a highly desired, pedestrianised cobble street, in the heart of Old Town Poole. Believed to be built by Thomas Byngley circa 1567, the property was orginally part of the adjoining house next door. The property was believed to be separated in the 1700's to create what are now Mary Tudor Cottage and Byngley House.

The property has undergone extensive refurbishment in the last few years to create a perfect blend with the conveniences of modern living and yet tastefully retaining numerous period features. The property still boasts the original servant's stair case & exposed brick & oak beam work, which were part of the original building.

Walking in from the cobbled pedestrian street into the entrance vestibule & sitting room gives you the initial feeling of history that the property offers. The spacious lounge has a feature stone fire place, exposed brick work & oak beams. There are also sash windows to the front with matching shutters.


The inner hall leads to a main stairwell with the benefit of a separate downstairs WC. The hall provides access into dining room with ann open arch leading directly into a contemporary kitchen with doors opening onto beautifully landscaped garden. The dining hall also offers panelled doors which hide the secret winding staircase leading to the top floor and the second bedroom. The first floor boasts a spacious master bedroom to the front, enjoying large sash windows, secondary glazing and again matching shutters. The master suite also offers an open bathroom and fully fitted wardrobes.
