Full description

Tenure: Leasehold

Abbotsbury has to be one of the loveliest villages, close to the coast and with the wonderful St Catherine’s Chapel dominating the landscape providing a dramatic backdrop.

The property is a Grade II listed semi-detached old stone cottage, dating from the 1600's and renovated to an impeccable standard internally whilst retaining some incredible features. SITTING ROOM contains a large inglenook fireplace with gas-fired stove and old bread oven, plus an old stairwell in the corner still which maintains a spy hole – an charming indicator of the villages less genteel past as a hot spot of smugglers, thieves and wreckers! There is a useful LOBBY as you enter the cottage which leads through to the sitting room and then to the KITCHEN/DINING ROOM beyond which is a large room with beautiful duck egg blue wall and base units, together with a Belfast sink, gas hob with extractor hood, a double oven, dishwasher and washing machine. A glazed back door provides a lovely view of the garden and there is a downstairs CLOAKROOM with WC and hand washbasin.

Stairs rise from the kitchen to the FIRST FLOOR which opens to a good-size landing. The BATHROOM too is spacious with both a bath, mixer tap, separate shower, WC and washbasin. There are also two storage spaces that run the length of the bathroom. Both bedrooms are double rooms: the MASTER BEDROOM has extensive fitted wardrobes and BEDROOM 2 also has a large fitted wardrobe and the old chimney breast which is an impressive feature.
