Tenure: Freehold

Clover Cottage is a pretty double fronted cottage peacefully situated in the picturesque village of Litton Cheney, constructed with solid stone external walls under a slate roof. The cottage offers a host of character features typical of its age and type including Inglenook fireplace, exposed beams, wood panelling, cottage/panelled internal doors, window seats and small pane windows. Under the current ownership an extensive list of refurbishment has been undertaken to a very high standard including installation of LPG gas fired central heating, part replacement of timber sealed windows, new first floor bathroom/shower room featuring a roll-top bathroom, redecoration (Farrow & Ball), new floor coverings, upgrading of the electrics and lighting and extensive landscaping of the gardens.

The accommodation faces principally south enjoying fantastic views and is very well presented. On the ground floor are 2 reception rooms, galley style kitchen and shower room whilst on the first floor is a large landing with reception area, 3 bedrooms and bathroom/shower room.

Outside are gardens to the front and rear together with off-road parking and additional parking nearby.

The cottage is set well back from the lane with a front garden measuring approximately 90ft in length being laid to lawn, stocked with a variety of shrubs and plants. Immediately adjoining the front of the cottage is a paved patio area designed to take advantage of the south facing aspect over the Bride Valley and surrounding West Dorset countryside. To the front is a newly gravelled off-road parking area.

At the rear of the cottage steps lead up to an extensive landscaped garden which has been designed for ease of maintenance with various gravelled borders and railway sleeper retaining walls. Within the garden is a useful garden store. At the far end of the lane is an additional parking area for the cottage.

Litton Cheney is a picturesque village situated in the heart of the Bride Valley surrounded by attractive countryside, only a few miles inland from the coast. It is a delightful Conservation village consisting largely of period stone and thatched cottages, for which the area is particularly well known. There is a church, village hall, primary school and public house.

The immediate locality is designated as being one of Outstanding Natural Beauty and there are excellent walking opportunities from the cottage. The beautiful World Heritage coastline is within only a few miles. The nearby A35 provides good access to the market town of Bridport about 6 miles to the west and to Dorchester, the County town of Dorset, about 9 miles to the east. From here there is a main line rail service to London. The larger centres of Weymouth and Yeovil are within easy driving distance.
