Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This superb Grade II listed cottage, dating back to 1750, is situated in the historic hamlet of Buckland Ripers.

Pretty steps lead up to the front door, which opens into a lobby area, off which is a CLOAKROOM with WC, hand-wash basin, and vanity storage. An inner door from the lobby leads to the KITCHEN/DINING ROOM, which is divided into two almost separate spaces. Upon entering, only the dining area of the room is apparent, with the kitchen tucked round a corner, concealed from view. The flexible dining area offers a welcoming and functional fireplace with wood-burner, and enjoys an exposed brick feature wall. The kitchen offers a range of wall-mounted and base units with work surface over, and benefits from a dual aspect making the room light and airy all year round. From here is access to the extensive full-height CELLAR, which is used as a larder and additional storage space. The cellar itself benefits from four window slits, and an external door to the garden.

Adjacent to the dining area, entered via a wide solid wood door, the SITTING ROOM features an exposed stone wall with wood-burner infront. Enjoying generous proportions and dual aspect views of the garden, the room makes for an ideal entertaining space.

In typical cottage style, stairs rise from the kitchen/dining room to the FIRST FLOOR. BEDROOM ONE is an excellent double room with the convenience of a generous built-in wardrobe, and views over the garden. BEDROOM TWO, also a good-sized double, enjoys a functioning feature fireplace, and views of the chapel from a beautiful window with original inner shutters. The BATHROOM offers a sit-in bath with overhead shower, WC, hand-wash basin, and vanity unit.

Outside
A gravelled DRIVEWAY bordered by colourful shrubs leads to the front of the property, where there is an area of lawn, plentiful PARKING, and a single GARAGE with power, light, and a useful sink and drainer.

Predominantly to the side of the property lies the extensive GARDEN, which extends to just under a third of an acre (0.27 acres). Behind the garage is a gravelled patio area and a lawn bordered by mature trees and shrubs. A beautiful stream divides the garden, crossed by a picturesque foot bridge fashioned from railway sleepers. Beyond this, the garden opens up to a large area of lawn with mature shrubs and ornamental trees creating a peaceful, private environment. There is also a SUMMERHOUSE, greenhouse, and potting shed.

Location
Set in the delightful, secluded hamlet of Buckland Ripers, the property is nestled quietly among the rolling Dorset countryside. Despite the ambience of rural tranquillity, the hamlet is advantageously positioned within easy reach of both Weymouth and the country town of Dorchester. The mainline railway station at nearby Upwey offers a journey time to London Waterloo of approximately 2.5 hours.
