Full description

Delightful thatched cottage.

Austin Estate Agents are delighted to offer for sale this quintessential semi-detached period cottage, which is being offered for sale with no onward chain. The cottage is situated in the heart of Netherbury, an attractive village between Beaminster and the market town of Bridport in Dorset.

We believe the cottage was constructed around 1860 and is steeped in history. It has been beautifully restored by the current vendors throughout, whilst still retaining certain character features, including solid beamed ceilings, which we understand from the vendors, originated from old sailing ships.

The sitting room is situated to the front of the cottage. A generously sized room, it enjoys a double-glazed sash bay window with an attractive seating area overlooking the garden and a stone fireplace to centre with a cast-iron multifuel stove.

The dining room is the heart of the cottage. Tastefully decorated with attractive double-glazed windows and seating areas, tiled floor and a beautiful Inglenook fireplace surrounded by rustic stone with a cast iron multifuel stove.

The kitchen is everything one expects a country kitchen to be. It has a modern, bespoke, cottage style range of eye level and base units, four ring gas hob, gas oven with extractor hood, Belfast sink, solid wood worktop surfaces and a pretty, double glazed window overlooking the garden.

The ground floor also benefits from a modern shower / utility room with a double shower cubicle, pedestal wash hand basin, low-level WC, a double-glazed window to the side with plumbing and power for washing machine and tumble dryer.

The first floor landing is light and airy. There are three double bedrooms some featuring wonderful bespoke built-in wardrobes and all with attractive double-glazed windows with recess areas adding to the charm of this cottage. In recent years the current owners converted a fourth bedroom to a spacious first floor bathroom. The bathroom offers bright natural light from a double-glazed window and seating area to side overlooking the wonderful gardens, with a low-level WC, pedestal wash hand basin and panelled bath.

Externally, an attractive pathway runs alongside both cottages to the side, giving access to the cottage and additionally leading to the garden. The garden has been wonderfully maintained and is predominately laid to lawn with an extensive range of attractive plants, shrubs and mature trees to ensure interest all year round. Other features include a raised decking area with storage below. This beautiful garden enjoys views from the decking area of the cottage and village church in the background. There is also a large garden shed to the rear of the garden providing additional storage.

Netherbury is said to be one of Dorset's prettiest villages, with elegant houses and a beautiful church nestling in the tree-filled Brit Valley. Local schools, shops and amenities can be found in Beaminster, approximately 1½ miles away. The bustling market town of Bridport is four miles away. Stunning countryside walks can be enjoyed throughout the region, with the coastal resort of West Bay offering further walks along the World Heritage coastline.

Vendors' Comments:

?We have greatly enjoyed our past 15 years at Yew Tree Cottage, being made extremely welcome into the friendly community of the pretty village of Netherbury and falling in love with the surrounding area which offers the tranquillity of charming countryside, vibrancy of nearby Bridport, with its art scene and delightful markets and all only a short distance from the World Heritage Jurassic Coast at West Bay "Broadchurch". It is only the lure of a long admired and nearby property (just a short walk from Yew Tree) that has convinced us that it is time for us to move on. We would never have left this beautiful home otherwise."
