2 bedroom cottage for saleSherborne Road, Charlton Horethorne, Sherborne
Situated in the sought after village of Charlton Horethorne is this delilghtful Victorian stone cottage enjoying an elevated position and just a short walk to the village centre where there is the hall which hosts many events, shop, garage, public house/hotel, primary school and church. We believe that the row of cottages date to the late 1800's and were homes of related families, however, over the course of time the cottages have been sold off, yet the new residents have formed their own community where one may be as involved as one would like. Our sellers have lived in the property for the last seven and half years, during which time they have invested time and energy to create a comfortable home, which has been improved by installing Upvc double glazing, some re-plumbing, re-plastering and re-wiring, as well as a wood burner in the sitting room and a re-configuration on the first floor. The cottage also benefits from economy 7 heating but the heaters have been removed from the rooms and are stored, however they could easily be reconnected, if required. This lovely home really warrants a viewing to truly appreciate the feel of the cottage and size of the rooms.
In brief, the ground floor accommodation consists of useful porch, combined sitting and dining with wood burner, kitchen/breakfast room and rear porch. On the first floor there is a shower room, a double bedroom and a single bedroom. Outside, there is parking to the front of the property, front garden and very long rear garden which is situated behind the old wash house.
