Full description

Tenure: Freehold


This attractive semi-detached stone former schoolhouse has been comprehensively rebuilt and refurbished by the present owners over the last 5 years or so.

The accommodation is beautifully presented and has many old and new features, including natural stone and timber floors, oak doors and exposed beams. The large sitting room has an open fireplace with wood burner. There is a separate dining room and a fabulous modern kitchen with an excellent range of high quality appliances. Upstairs there are three bedrooms and two bath/shower rooms on the first floor and two more bedrooms and an ensuite bathroom in the attic.

The house also benefits from extensive double glazing and modern oil fired heating which make it an easy and economical home to manage. It would be ideal as a local base for Dorchester or Weymouth and is secure and quiet enough to make a lovely coastal country retreat in one of the most attractive parts of the South Coast.

Grove Lane is a quiet backwater only providing access to about half a dozen other houses between the village, the Swannery and the coast (about ½ miles away). The main village and Swannery traffic runs along a parallel lane well away from the cottage.
The south west facing gardens all lie behind the house and can be enjoyed with a high degree of privacy. Immediately behind the house, there is a sunny terrace with access from the kitchen/breakfast room. Beyond that the gardens are largely laid to lawn, with a central water feature and beautifully stocked colourful borders, which run alongside the garden up to a wooded hillside above the property.

The picturesque village of Abbotsbury, famous for the Swannery and Subtropical Gardens, is just a mile inland from the coast at Chesil Beach, a World Heritage Site. It is a thriving community with excellent facilities including shops, pubs and other attractions, and for a wider range of services and amenities it is only short drive to the county town of Dorchester, Georgian Bridport or the seaside town of Weymouth, all within 10miles. To travel further afield the A35 is close by and both Dorchester and Weymouth have mainline railway stations around 2 ½ hours from London Waterloo.
