THE PROPERTY
A very rare opportunity to acquire a charming end of terrace period cottage with a cottage annexe/wing in a very picturesque village setting. The cottages, originally 3, are believed to date back over 300 years and are Listed Grade II of architectural or historic importance. The current ownership dates back to 1957. The properties have main walls of solid stone under predominantly thatched roofs. There is a host of character features including an Inglenook fireplace, window seats, exposed beams, cottage doors and small pane windows (with secondary double glazing). Both cottages have wood burners. They enjoy a very attractive front outlook over the church and Puncknowle Manor.

Burwell Cottage and Little Burwell are interconnecting and could be used as one large home. Alternatively Little Burwell would be ideal as an annexe or for holiday/long term lettings producing a good source of income.

Both properties have been well cared for over many years although general modernisation is now ideally required.

There is also the option of purchasing a nearby lock-up garage which includes a small adjoining garden with stream.

OUTSIDE
Small front area with borders. Burwell Cottage has a rear courtyard which is paved together with a variety of flower and shrub borders, potting shed and a side pedestrian gate onto the village street. Little Burwell has a small back yard. Both have access to a stone shed with power and light.

SURROUNDING AREAS
The cottages occupy a very picturesque location within the heart of the village with attractive views over the church and Puncknowle Manor. Puncknowle is located in the beautiful Bride Valley. The village has a thriving community and amenities include a thatched pub, church and village hall plus bus service. The nearby village of Litton Cheney has a primary school and, within 3 miles are the coastal villages of Burton Bradstock and Abbotsbury.

The area is designated as being one of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the stunning World Heritage Jurassic coast is very nearby at West Bexington. The historic town of Bridport is only about 6 miles with excellent amenities, a twice weekly market and a leisure centre. There is a golf course at West Bay. Dorchester and Weymouth, both with rail services to London, are about 12 miles.
