Property description

Tenure: Leasehold

Located towards at the top end of this convenient Dorset Village and near to the Church is this circa 1700’s charming semi detached cottage. The property has a colourful history and offers good accommodation throughout including an elevated garden, plus a garage. Viewing is highly recommended to appreciate this lovely home.

The cottage was owned in the late 18th century by Isaac Gulliver, Dorset smuggler turned gentleman and Mayor of Wimborne, along with three adjacent cottages, two of which remain, retaining much of its character. The cottage is South Facing so the rear raised garden catches the full extent of the sun during the day, whilst enjoying the partial shade of a walnut tree. The cottage is within walking distance of the local village First School and St Mary’s Church in one direction and a convenient shop in the other. The property is located in the Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with stunning local walks and scenery.

On the ground floor you enter into the kitchen/dining room which in turn connects with the cosy living room which has a wood burner and stairs that rise to the first floor. Also on the ground floor is a third bedroom which in years past has been a shop and could provide accommodation for an elderley relative as the bathroom is located opposite.

The first floor has two further bedrooms one of which is dual aspect, plus a shower room.

Outside there is a raised garden which is laid partially as lawn and the remainder as a patio. The garage has an up and over door and adjacent to the garage is an allocated parking space.

The village of Sixpenny Handley lies in the heart of the scenic Cranborne Chase in Dorset and is part of the Cranborne Chase and West Wiltshire Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Village amenities include a local store and good quality local butcher's shop, and there is a 13th Century church towards the upper end of the village. Immediate health and educational needs are served by a Doctors' surgery and Sixpenny Handley First School respectively, with further schooling at Cranborne and Wimborne. There are excellent sporting facilities on the edge of the village and the outdoor enthusiast is well catered for by the surrounding countryside. The local road network provides convenient access for the regional centres of Blandford, Salisbury and Shaftesbury and there are mainline rail links at Salisbury. International airports are found at Bournemouth and Southampton.

To the front is a courtyard style area.

The elevated rear garden is approached from the parking area alongside the garage via a set of steps and is arranged as a lawn and a patio area, perfect for alfresco dining in the warmer months.

PARKING – There is a parking space adjacent to the garage with a right of way from the High Street providing access.
