Tenure: Freehold

An enchanting thatched cottage, packed with character, situated in the centre of this thriving Dorset village

A charming Grade II listed cottage in the heart of Okeford Fitzpaine. Believed to date back to the 17th Century, the current owners have lived here since 1996. The property was turned into the village inn some 200 years ago, and it was only in the 1960's that the house became a private residence. Since owning the property they have vastly improved it by entirely refurbishing throughout, adding a fantastic kitchen/family room extension, as well as the indoor pool located at the end of the garden. The thatch was completely renewed seven years ago. Nutmeg Cottage has three bedrooms in the main house, with family bathroom and an en-suite shower facility. There is a further guest bedroom in the self contained annexe which itself has, en-suite, kitchenette and sitting room. This space is infinitely suitable for guests, or as a holiday let, which it is casually used as now. The kitchen/family room is a superb space, with views over the rear garden and patio area, it has a pitched ceiling and Velux windows, flooding the room with light. The kitchen is equipped with gas fired Rayburn, which does all the heating and hot water, and a single electric cooker. The whole room has solid oak flooring and floor standing units with oak worktops. The utility room has plumbing for various appliances and leads through to a cloakroom. The sitting room has a fantastic inglenook with an open fire, it is believed this used to be the main bar, it is now a relaxing room decorated in soft pale fabrics and honey-coloured wood. The dining room leads conveniently off the kitchen extension.

The property is approached via a gravel driveway to the side, leading to a thatched double garage. The rear garden is well designed and has a fantastic patio area off the kitchen, perfect for al-fresco dining. The indoor pool is clad with Canadian Cedar Wood and has a pitched tiled roof, it is located about half way up the garden, with a further patio area outside. The garden continues on and at the top is a flat lawn area, ideal for kids. The rest of the garden provides interest throughout the year, with a range of herbaceous and shrub borders, specimen trees and hedges bordering the property.
