Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A charming, period cottage in the heart of the village with garden and parking. Recently refurbished throughout.

Pear Tree Cottage is a truly charming period cottage, believed to date back to the 1800's. The house has been sympathetically renovated throughout in recent years. Whilst providing modern living conditions it retains much character with many period features. These include a fireplace, wood and flagstone flooring, sash windows and deep window sills. The decoration is very much in keeping with the age of the house and has a real "olde worlde" feel.

Accommodation
On entering the front door one is immediately aware of the character of the house, with the original flooring. The sitting room to the side is a delightful room with fireplace, flagstone floors, under-stairs storage cupboard and privacy shutters to the front.

The kitchen/dining/family room is the real heart of the home. The kitchen is fitted with an excellent range of floor and wall units including an attractive free-standing dresser unit. The electric 4 oven Aga stove is included in the sale and there is an integral washer/dryer and dish washer.

Part of the recent renovations included replacing the roof, and during this work 2 velux windows were installed, making this is a lovely, bright room. There is plenty of space for a dining table, and sofa/play area - whatever is required.

To the rear of the property is a delightful double bedroom, a single bedroom (currently used for storage) and a recently installed shower room with a large shower cubicle, low level wc, pedestal wash hand basin and heated towel rail.

Also to the ground floor is a useful hallway area which could be utilised as a study.

To the first floor is another lovely double bedroom with oak flooring, and a bathroom with freestanding roll-top bath, shower cubicle, wc and basin. There are fabulous views to the rear overlooking the hills and countryside beyond.

Outside
Double gates lead to the gravelled driveway with parking for 2 cars. The raised garden to the side is mainly laid to lawn with a good size paved patio area with roofed pergola and timber summer house. There is a large vegetable garden (easily returned to lawn if preferred). There is an additional parking space for a small car to the front of the house.


Bishops Caundle is a small village on an elevated ridge overlooking Blackmore Vale countryside. There is the historic village church and the popular White Hart public house. Also, there is a village shop and post office, primary school, village hall and garage with shop.

6 miles away is the Abbey town of Sherborne with its historic architecture, boutique and national high street shops, sports centres and two supermarkets. Educational facilities are excellent with the well regarded Gryphon state secondary school and the renowned private Sherborne Schools and Leweston. There is also access to the A30 trunk road and mainline railway station (Waterloo 2 hours 15 minutes).
