Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

An attractive detached period stone cottage with a delightful garden in a rural and peaceful Dorset village

Walnut Tree Cottage, which is Listed Grade II, is believed to have origins dating back to the C16th and comprises stone elevations under a thatched roof. The single storey extension to the rear of the cottage was added about 9 years ago and comprises brick elevations under a tiled roof. The extension blends agreeably with the original building and provides a contemporary living space with a kitchen/breakfast room, garden room with roof lights, doors to the delightful rear garden and views to open countryside. Character features such as inglenook fireplace and exposed timbers are found in the principal reception rooms in the period part of the property.

The cottage is approached from a quiet village lane from which there is access via double gates to an area of gravelled parking and a garage. A pedestrian gate on the front boundary opens into a pretty fenced front garden with lawn, shrubs and a path leading to the open porch and front door. The delightful rear garden has superb west facing views over rolling grassland and hills. The majority of the garden is laid to lawn interspersed with mature trees, shrubs, perennials and a paved terrace adjacent to the kitchen and garden room.

Mappowder is a small rural village amidst some of the most attractive countryside in the county. The village has the delightful parish church of St. Peter & St. Paul and is situated approximately 2 miles from the larger village of Hazelbury Bryan which has a village shop, public house and first school.
