Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A period 4 BEDROOM cottage in a rural hamlet with a lovely garden. In about 1.2 ACRES.

Laurel Cottage is tucked away off a quiet slip road in this rural hamlet, nestling within rolling countryside. The cottage is believed to date
from the late 1700’s with later additions. On the ground floor are two reception rooms, study, kitchen/breakfast room, garden room, utility,
wc and boot room with, upstairs, a spacious landing, main bedroom with en suite shower room, further three bedrooms and family bathroom. The cottage could benefit from some updating.
The majority of rooms enjoy a south-easterly view over the lower garden and with a terrace along this side of the cottage. There is ample parking on the gravel forecourt above the cottage and fronting the double garage. The garden abuts farmland and has three distinct areas with some natural woodland to the far end.
The gateway opens to the gravel parking area above the cottage and fronting the detached DOUBLE GARAGE with up and over door, power and light. Steps down to the paved terrace along the garden elevation. To the drive side of the
cottage is a rose bed; there is a paved path around the other (south-west) side with the oil tank and a pedestrian gate to the road. The delightful garden is predominantly laid to lawn and there are three distinct areas, with hedging, some shrubs,
specimen trees and other trees including a fine mature horse chestnut. There is vehicular access to the garden via an access track just beyond the driveway. Within the upper garden is a productive large soft fruit cage; beyond is some natural
woodland with a pleasant meandering path. Summerhouse. Sheds. Outside water tap. Oil tank.
In all about 1.2 acres (0.48 ha)
Note: Two other properties have a right of way over an initial section of driveway including a bridle path (not inside the gateway).

The cottage lies beside a small lane off the Cerne Valley A352 road
which provides convenient access to the historic Abbey town of
Sherborne (about 8 miles to the north) and the county town of
Dorchester (about 12 miles to the south), as well as Yeovil. They all
provide a wide range of shopping, commercial and educational
facilities including leisure centres and supermarkets. All three towns
have mainline railway stations to London/Waterloo. Cerne Abbas,
about 3 miles, is noted for its excellent facilities with a doctors’ and
dispensing surgery, village store/sub post office, first school, church,
village hall and three public houses.
