Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Bavewell Cottage is an extremely well presented six bedroom family home set in beautifully landscaped gardens. During the extensive renovations and alterations the current owners carefully selected materials in keeping with the age of the original house, ensuring that the character has been maintained throughout. These include oak panelling, oak doors, beams and flagstones.

Sitting alongside these period features are modern facilities and materials, including 4” thick insulation to the inside external walls, state of the art computerised air source heating with under floor heating, and double glazing throughout.

The real heart of the home is the open plan kitchen/dining room, which opens into the garden room. As seen from the photographs this is a beautiful space with double doors to the front and side, and enjoying garden views. The kitchen is very well appointed with a range of floor and wall units, integral dish washer and fridge, Belfast sink and additional corner “cooks” sink, wooden work surfaces and Rangemaster stove. To the side is a walk-in pantry with space for additional fridge/freezer, and door through to the utility room with space and plumbing for the white goods.

The sitting room is a charming room with oak panelling and beams, inglenook fireplace with freestanding wood burner and door to the staircase.
The first floor has two double bedrooms (one en-suite), a single bedroom and family bathroom. Further stairs lead to the second floor where there is a delightful room, currently a bedroom but would lend itself to a home office if required, and en-suite shower room.

To one end of the property an extension was added to provide an annexe, although now the ground floor is used as an office it would also make a substantial dining room. This has its own entrance and garden, but is also accessed from the main house. It should be noted that the water and electrics are all in place to convert this space to a kitchen and sitting room. The first floor provides a bathroom and two bedrooms. The bedrooms are separated by a bi-fold wall, easily pushed to one end to provide a large room. Currently installed is a remotely operated projector and screen which drop down from the ceiling, and the room becomes a fabulous cinema room (not included in the sale but open to negotiation).

Outside
The gardens are a delightful feature of Bavewell Cottage, having been completely landscaped by professionals, who have created a magnificent semi-formal garden, with ponds, fountains, box hedging, rose garden, a small orchard, charming paved seating areas and extensive vegetable garden. Being located on the very edge of the village, the gardens enjoy views over the surrounding country side.

There is a gravelled driveway which provides ample parking, and leads to the double garage, workshop and garden store.

The design and layout of the refurbishment of this house is first class and it is obvious that the current owners were intending to remain in the property for many years to enjoy their labours, but circumstances have changed and they find they have to move away.
All in all, Bavewell Cottage offers someone the opportunity to acquire a beautiful house, offering flexible accommodation to meet a variety of needs. Only on viewing can one fully appreciate the quality and features of the house.



Situation
Bavewell Cottage is on a quiet road on the edge of Milborne Port. It offers easy access to the local countryside walks but is also conveniently situated for the village amenities. These include a public house, church, vets, doctor’s surgery, paper shop and renowned butcher.
Milborne Port is only 3 miles from the popular Abbey town of Sherborne (frequent buses) where there is an excellent range of boutique shops, 2 large supermarkets, a range of sport facilities and frequent trains direct to London Waterloo.
