Formally The Tea Clipper tearooms (1975 to 2007), this substantial cottage is now a spacious and versatile family home, offering a potential income from two self-contained holiday apartments to the rear of the main residence.

With colour washed rendered elevations under a thatched roof, this Grade II listed cottage has versatile accommodation arranged over two floors.

The former tea room is a large L-shaped room situated at the front of the property, enjoying a pleasant aspect through a pair of bay windows to The Street beyond. There is an attractive fireplace with Bressumer, quarry tiled hearth, bread oven and an inset multi-fuel stove.

The sitting room is dual aspect with a partially vaulted ceiling and an attractive fireplace with inset multi-fuel stove.

To the rear of the property is a large kitchen with a range of cupboards below a laminate worktop.

With an integrated oven, there is a walk-in pantry and space for a fridge freezer. In addition, there is an oil fired ‘Stanley’ which heats the radiators both in the house and the holiday apartments as well as providing hot water.

There is a spacious utility, accessed via the kitchen which has a door to outside, a high level window and space for a dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer. There is a Belfast sink and a useful airing cupboard.

Completing the ground floor accommodation are two separate cloakrooms, both with a WC and wash hand basin, adjacent to what used to be the kitchen for the tea room. This former kitchen is currently utilised as a craft room by the current owners.

Rising to the first floor, there are three double bedrooms, all of which have fitted cupboards. Bedrooms 1 and 2 are to the front of the cottage and enjoy quaint window seats looking across The Street. Bedroom 3 has windows to the rear aspect.

The family bathroom has an obscured glass window to the rear and has a bath with shower attachment over, W/C and wash hand basin.

The holiday apartments are located at the rear of the property and are accessed separately from the cottage. Each apartment has its own private entrance, living room, shower room, kitchen and bedroom. One apartment has an additional bedroom. Both are heated via the Stanley in the main residence and have Velux windows to the rear elevation.

The gardens have been beautifully landscaped and rise through a number of terraces. There is off road parking to the side and front of the property and a courtyard garden providing access to the large garage/workshop. The garage/workshop has light and power and houses the oil tank. Steps rise to either side of the cottage giving access to the two holiday apartments and to the rear gardens. The rear gardens are terraced into the sloping hillside and are well stocked with an abundance of plants, shrubs and trees. There are two greenhouses and an atrium towards the top of the garden.

Steeped in history, Milton Abbas offers a well-known public house, a post office, Steeptonbill Farm Shop and a church as well as a doctor's surgery and the famous Milton Abbey School with its own golf club.

The nearby market town of Blandford Forum is approximately 7 miles and the County town of Dorchester, with mainline station is approximately 10 miles and both offer commercial, shopping and sporting facilities.

There are a range of excellent local schools in the area including Milton Abbey, Bryanston and Clayesmore in the private sector. Local state schools include The Blandford School and Thomas Hardye School in Dorchester. The larger towns of Poole and Bournemouth are approximately 20 miles and 25 miles respectively and the coast is within easy reach by car.
