A detached 3 bedroom Purbeck stone detached village house with conservatory and double garage on a small quiet cul-de-sac in the heart of this popular village

SITUATION:  The property is the first of a small close of Purbeck stone houses and bungalows which adjoin the open countryside and just 50 yards or so from the local pub, The Crown.  The village also has a Methodist Chapel which is used for many community events, such as concerts, coffee mornings and brick-a-brac sales as well as church services and as a meeting place.

The area is a Conservation Area and the beautiful surrounding West Dorset countryside offers a network of scenic footpaths and bridleways.

The A35 lies just half-a-mile away giving easy access to the County Town of Dorchester (approximately 13 miles) to the east and the market town of Bridport (about 3 miles) to the west.  The Jurassic Coastline lies some 5 miles distant at West Bay, where there is a fishing harbour, access to coastal paths, beaches and opportunities to enjoy many leisure and water pursuits, including a golf course on East Cliff.
