Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Pippins is a charming, character semi-detached period cottage, delightfully situated in a peaceful country setting within the hamlet of Oxbridge. The property was formerly understood to be 2 cottages, constructed with stone and brick elevations under a slate roof. Under the current ownership since the early 1990's the property has been subject to comprehensive modernisation and refurbishment together with the construction of a delightful 2 storey extension. All the principal rooms enjoy a westerly facing aspect with glorious views over the gardens and surrounding countryside.

The extensive accommodation includes a most attractive sitting/dining room with brick fireplace and wood burning stove and oak flooring. Access leads through into a UPVC double glazed conservatory overlooking the gardens, again with oak floors, a high quality kitchen/breakfast room with solid painted wood units and beech work surfaces, built-in appliances and oil-fired Aga. A delightful 2 storey extension provides further accommodation which would be suitable for a dependant relative with a snug, utility room and shower room and staircase leading up to most impressive first floor studio/occasional bedroom.

On the first floor the original cottage has 3 bedrooms with the master bedroom having an en suite shower room and family bathroom.

Internally the accommodation is immaculately presented and internal viewings comes very highly recommended.

Outside there is a lay-by opposite the cottage providing parking for approximately 3 cars with further hardstanding to the front and potential off road parking to the side access.

To the rear are most attractive landscaped gardens, stocked with an abundance of shrubs and plants, enjoying good seclusion and privacy from neighbouring properties and enjoying a south and westerly aspect. Immediately adjoining the rear is a paved and timber decking area, together with 2 fishponds and large expanses of lawned gardens interspersed with a variety of shrubs and trees, flowers, vegetable garden, SUMMERHOUSE, SHED, WOOD STORE and CHICKEN HOUSE.

Oxbridge is a delightful hamlet tucked away in the Brit Valley and surrounded by beautiful countryside. There are many attractive walks in the locality. The historic market town of Bridport is only about 4 miles distant where there is an excellent range of amenities and a twice weekly street market. The beautiful World Heritage coast, known as the Jurassic Coast, is only 1½ miles further to the south at West Bay where there are bathing beaches, an 18 hole golf course and access to stunning cliff top walks.

The nearby villages of Melplash, Waytown and Netherbury have local amenities, whilst the picturesque town of Beaminster, approximately 3 miles to the north, has a further range of shops and recreational facilities. Dorchester, the County town of Dorset, is about 16 miles to the east with main line rail services to London and the West Country.
