A charming detached period property only a short walking distance from the centre of this highly sought after conservation village.

Priorsdean is an attractive period cottage situated in a peaceful central village location with pleasant views over the countryside from many of the rooms. The cottage has origins dating back to the 1800s and has been altered and extended in recent years now providing spacious and versatile accommodation over three floors. The south facing reception rooms are located in the older part of the cottage and the kitchen/breakfast room, a later addition, has doors to a modern conservatory leading directly to the private rear garden. From the conservatory there are views towards the fine church tower belonging to The Parish Church of St Mary, with a backdrop of Giant Hill beyond. The second floor attic room is very useful with exposed timber roof trusses and together with three further bedrooms on the first floor and two reception rooms plus a study on the ground floor there is plenty of accommodation to suit a family.
The front garden comprises steps up to a small raised terrace enclosed by railings and pedestrian access to the front door. A driveway to the eastern side of the property leads to private parking, a double garage and access to the rear of the cottage and garden. The delightful landscaped mature garden is enclosed by walls with raised brick and flint flowerbeds, pathway, terrace, circular lawn and small garden shed.
The conservation village of Cerne Abbas with its fine parish Church of St Mary, lies within the unspoilt Dorset Downs about 8 miles north west of the county town of Dorchester.
