Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A quintessential Dorset cottage, comprehensively restored in the heart of this popular village.

The Homestead is a most attractive property constructed of stone elevations under a pitched tiled roof, with a later brick addition and is believed to date from the mid 17th century. The property has recently been subject to a comprehensive refurbishment using traditional materials throughout, enhancing the many period features and at the same time using quality fittings providing for a comfortable property. Great attention to detail is prevalent throughout and where possible restoring features including fireplaces.

To the front is an attractive timber and tile entrance, with a door opening to the kitchen. The kitchen has stone flooring and an excellent range of wall and floor units with wooden worktops incorporating one and a half bowl white enamel sink with attractive views over the front garden. An attractive brick built recess with gas point for a range. A side latch door leads to the utility with base units, worktops, stainless steel sink, plumbing and space for washing machine and door to a boiler cupboard and guest cloakroom, and a part glazed door to the outside. The kitchen opens into the wonderful dining room with original stone flooring and attractive fireplace, staircase to first floor and open to the sitting room, again with restored original stone flooring, fine stone fireplace with oak bressemer beam, window seats and latch door to the new oak framed garden room. Off the sitting room is a rear hall which could be a small playroom, and the door to the study, which interconnects back to the utility.

A staircase leads to the first floor landing with part exposed stone walling, under eaves storage and doors to the three bedrooms. The master bedroom has a large ensuite shower room with tiled shower, pedestal wash hand basin, WC, heated towel rail and attractive tongue and groove panelling. The two further bedrooms are served by a spacious family bathroom with panelled bath, part tiled walls, overhead shower, pedestal wash hand basin, heated towel rail, WC part tongue and groove with pigeon hole storage, and of particular note is the secondary staircase leading down to the sitting room.

The Homestead is approached over a gravelled parking area with double timber gates leading to the side entrance. The cottage gardens are mainly to the front and side with areas of lawn, and traditional stone retaining edges and a path with iron gate leading to the front. A newly laid path leads round to the side of the house adjacent to the garden room, with a further side gate and access to the study/playroom. Overall the gardens provide attractive amenity space, whilst at the same time being easily maintained.
