Property description

Tenure: Freehold

An attractive Grade II listed cottage with an annex, planning potential and delightful garden close to the town centre.
24 Bimport is an attractive green sandstone and brick cottage under a slate roof which has been extended in recent years. Although in need of some updating, the cottage has sensibly configured accommodation with good ceiling heights, beamed ceilings in the sitting room, drawing room and dining room and a well fitted kitchen/breakfast room overlooking the garden. In recent years a large single storey extension has been added, incorporating the former garage. Informal discussions with planning consultants have led us to believe that an application (subject to planning) to extend at the rear with a two-storey extension overlooking the garden could be favourably received by the local planning authority.

In addition, there is a useful single storey building, comprising a foreshortened garage with an annex behind which provides an additional source of income or alternatively (subject to planning) could be converted into further car parking/office space.

The property is approached off Bimport through timber gates onto a gravel forecourt flanked on either side by colourful flower and shrub borders bordering the cottage and annexe. The majority of the garden lies to the rear of the property and is a particular feature; it is of good size, flanked on both sides by close boarded fencing and is principally to lawn, with attractive terraced areas, raised flower beds and a wide range of flower and shrub borders. There is a large timber shed and two further timber sheds at the end of the garden. At the centre is a mature silver birch.

Shaftesbury, a Saxon hilltop town which dates back to the times of Alfred the Great who founded the Abbey in the 9th century, has a good range of facilities. These include cafes, restaurants, niche retailers, a boutique hotel, banks, supermarket, a small hospital, library, health centre and an arts centre. More comprehensive facilities can be found in the Cathedral city of Salisbury to the east, the Georgian spa town of Bath to the north and Sherborne to the west. There are mainline railway stations at both Gillingham and Tisbury (London Waterloo) and the A303 lies some 8 miles to the north, giving access to the south west and London, via the M3.
