3 bedroom cottage for saleNewtown, Milborne Port, Sherborne
Guide Price £215,000
Full descriptionA mid terraced Grade II listed thatched cottage enjoying a peaceful location within walking distance to the doctors' surgery and local public house with the village centre and garage/convenience store a little further on. The cottage boasts a light interior with rural views from the upper floor over the neighbouring fields. We believe that the property was built around 1818 and forms part of the village which was created to entice the residents to vote for a certain political party. The property has been a family home to our sellers for the last two years during which time they have improved and re-instated character features more in keeping with the era of the cottage - a new fireplace with timber mantel and slate hearth was installed and part of the original wall has been preserved behind a presentation glass on the landing. The property also boasts the original Fire Insurance Wall Plaque. For modern day convenience the cottage benefits from some new flooring, re-plastering of walls, increasing the size of the front drive as well as installing a contemporary and stylish bathroom. The cottage also has gas fired central heating via radiators. A viewing is an absolute must to truly appreciate this delightful home.
In brief, the ground floor accommodation consists of useful porch, sitting room with window seat and open fire, dining room and kitchen/breakfast room with access to the utility/lean to. On the first floor there is the bathroom and three bedrooms. Outside, the gravel drive provides off road parking for two cars. The rear garden is mostly laid to lawn and has the original 200 year old privy house at the end of the garden. There is also access to the fields at the back of the property.
