Full description

Tenure: Freehold

An attractive architect designed cottage in a peaceful and rural village location with lovely countryside views

The Property

Goose Knap cottage was constructed 18 years ago as one of three bespoke properties each with their own unique appearance sympathetic with neighbouring period houses. From the front of the
cottage there are delightful pastoral views towards Tizards Knap and the fine Oak Tree planted for The Queen's Silver Jubilee and from the rear to the Parish Church of St Wite. The accommodation is bright and spacious with a double aspect sitting room with feature fireplace and a large kitchen with vaulted ceiling and adjoining dining room. Charming features such as beams, flagstone floors, stable doors and exposed brickwork contribute to creating a contemporary home with the character of a traditional period cottage. The gardens are a
delight. The rear garden comprises terrace, a mixture of mature shrubs, established hedging and steps leading down to a path and a trickling stream within an area of copse containing wild cherry,
cobnut, beech and fruit trees. A gravel path from the back door leads to the single garage and parking with additional parking space to the front of the property. The front garden is enclosed by mixed hedging and planted with lavender, shrubs and climbers including wisteria and clematis. A pedestrian gate gives access to the rear garden.

Beauty with some of the most striking countryside in Dorset and only a few miles from the stunning Jurassic Coast. The village is an attractive mix of farms and cottages, a village hall, The Five Bells Inn. Pre-School and the fine Parish Church of St Candida (or St Wite). The 13th Century Shrine of St Wite survived the Reformation and consequently this ancient church is unique in being the only parish church in England to contain the remains of its patron saint. Nearby Morcombelake has a farm shop selling a variety of groceries and a post office.
Charmouth is within 2.5 miles and offers a
selection of village shops, primary school and a
medical practice. A wider range of amenities are
available in the nearby towns of Bridport which
has a Waitrose, Morrisons and a popular twice
weekly street market; Lyme Regis with its famous
Cobb, sandy beach and excellent range of shops;
Axminster which has a mainline railway station to
London Waterloo (2.45hrs).
