Property Description

Full description

A charming brick and flint detached cottage, and a perfect project in a popular village setting.

Tanglin is a pretty brick and flint detached cottage with a good sized garden that will provide the next owners with a perfect project. Although the cottage is generally in good order and has oil fired central heating, it is over 30 years since it was last modernised, and it would now benefit from a comprehensive programme of updating and refurbishment. The accommodation on the ground floor is very generous and comprises a split level sitting room and garden room with an open fireplace (blocked) a separate dining room or study, a fitted kitchen and a downstairs WC. Upstairs there are two double bedrooms and a family bathroom. The single storey elevation at the back of the house is particularly suitable for extension, and it would be quite easy to enlarge the footprint out into the garden as well (subject to obtaining the necessary consents).
Tanglin provides an excellent opportunity to restore a pretty country cottage or refurbish, extend and enlarge to create an attractive family home.

Set back from the village street behind a low wall with a path to the front door, most of the garden is behind the house where there is an enclosed level lawn surrounded by well-stocked mature borders. Immediately behind the house there is a terrace accessed from the garden room and the kitchen, and to one side of the garden a generous gravel parking area in front of a large double garage and workshop.

The property is situated on a quiet lane on the edge of Buckland Newton, a much sought-after village lying midway between Dorchester, the county town and Sherborne with its impressive Abbey and grounds. The village has a busy and thriving community with a successful primary school, village shop and post office, busy village hall and parish church and a soon to re-opened pub, The Gaggle of Geese. The lovely countryside around the village provides many good opportunities for sport and recreation with excellent walking, riding and cycling all around, as well as golf and other sports clubs in and around Dorchester, Sherborne and Yeovil. The coast is under an hour’s drive to the south and the Dorset coastline has now been recognised as a world heritage site.

This part of Dorset is also well served with good schools at all levels and as well as an excellent primary school in the village there are secondary schools at The Gryphon in Sherborne and The Thomas Hardye School in Dorchester. Private schools in the area include Sherborne, Bryanston, Leweston and Milton Abbey as well as prep schools at Sunninghill, Perrott Hill and Knighton House.
