Tenure: Freehold

Rarely available, this charming extended cottage offers a wealth of character and has deceptively generous accommodation.

Lower Bockhampton is a pretty hamlet and a super location for anyone wanting Hardy Country being the home to the school where Thomas Hardy first attended as a young boy. The area has excellent walking in the surrounding countryside and the convenience of the county town just a short distance away.

The accommodation comprises; entrance hall with exposed stone wall and tiled floor, sitting room with a very attractive exposed brick inglenook, wood burning stove and bread oven, flag stone flooring and double doors into a large kitchen diner, kitchen fitted with ample cupboards, wooden work tops with ceramic sink, integrated electric double oven and hob, painted brick chimney breast and tiled floor, utility room with space and plumbing for washing machine and tumble dryer, sink unit, storage cupboard and oil fired boiler.

There is also a separate dining room/snug with wood burner and French doors into a lovely conservatory overlooking the garden with dwarf wall and half pitch glass roof.

On the first floor are 4 double bedrooms, some with wooden floors and decorative fire place, fitted wardrobes and bedroom 4 has a sink unit for guests. Bathroom with white suite and part tiled. In addition, there is also a separate shower room.

The property is well presented throughout and of particular benefit is a gravelled off road parking area to the side of the house. Further benefits include oil fired central heating and downstairs cloakroom.

A particular feature of the cottage is the garden. The rear garden is long and well established with a variety of shrubs, trees and flowers.

There is an area of lawn near the house with surrounding beds and private patio area. A brick and gravel path leads to a vegetable garden with raised beds, green houses and garden sheds. At the end of the garden is an attractive summer house and a number of fruit trees.

Hillcrest is situated in the pretty hamlet of Lower Bockhampton in the vale of the River Frome.

Lower Bockhampton enjoys a fabulous rural location and yet is only 3 miles east of Dorchester, the County town. There is a pretty walk along the river into Dorchester.

The spectacular Jurassic coastline, including Ringstead Bay, is about 9 miles away. Apart from Dorchester, other nearby towns including Wareham, Weymouth, Bridport, Blandford Forum and Poole provide comprehensive retail, commercial and recreational facilities.

Strategic main roads including the A35 trunk road and a mainline station at Dorchester, to London Waterloo, provide good communication links close by.

Mainline stations are also available at Moreton, Wool and Wareham, to the east.

There is an excellent network of footpaths and bridleways in the locality and some of these connect with Puddletown Forest to the north. The area provides excellent sporting opportunities including sailing and water sports at Weymouth and Poole and golf and sports centres at Dorchester, Weymouth and Bridport. There are a number of first class secondary and independent Schools in the area, notably the Thomas Hardye School and Sunninghill Prep School in Dorchester, Milton Abbey and Bryanston near Blandford Forum and the Sherborne Schools.
