Full description

A fantastic chance to purchase a partly attached cottage, which just oozes charisma and will hold one captive once through the front door. This delightful cottage is believed to be at least two hundred years old and hides its treasure well from the world behind stone walls as well as keeping its magical gardens a secret. The property lies within easy reach of all the village's facilities which includes a Co-op, post office, butcher, newsagent and chemist. There is also a church, primary school and doctors surgery. There are local buses and sevices to London, Poole and to Dorchester. The closest of these is the beautiful historic town of Sherborne which is within three miles. Our seller has created a fabulous home where old world charm and modern day expectation co-exist in harmony complimenting each other and enhancing this very special cottage. A wonderful inglenook fireplace with wood burner and Bressumer beam take centre stage in the sitting room, many of the windows have deep sills or seats under, there are also exposed timbers and stone walls. To cater for today's needs there is gas fired central, some under floor heating and uPVC double glazed windows benefiting from a Georgian bar. The property has also benefited from an historic extension, which does hold a wow factor, as do the attractively landscaped gardens. This lovely home must be viewed to truly appreciate its uniqueness and ambience.
