This is a delightful semi-detached cottage located in a truly lovely location in the highly attractive village of West Knighton with its pub and wonderful period properties. It is nestled amongst a development of individual and characterful old barns that back onto wonderful countryside and is in the very heart of the village.
Deceptive from the outside, the property is surprisingly extensive inside with a notable sense of space. It has good-size ENTRANCE HALL which has a downstairs CLOAKROOM with WC and washbasin and two large storage cupboards. There is a small SECONDARY HALLWAY which opens into the SITTING ROOM with lovely floor to ceiling windows and French doors overlooking the appealing garden with a handsome hedge and enjoying wonderful rural views over fields and agricultural land beyond.
It is a comfortable room with a recently fitted cosy gas coal-effect fire and a door leads into the CONSERVATORY which again has floor to ceiling windows and a sliding door to the garden all of which combine to make the most of the beautiful views. There is a generous KITCHEN/DINING ROOM with wall and base units, gas hob, double oven and plumbing for a dishwasher.
The staircase rises from the entrance hall to the FIRST FLOOR; the wonderful high apex roof with timbers is immediately apparent and creates a considerable feeling of space and light.
The MASTER BEDROOM has double aspect windows over the views beyond and there is a built-in double wardrobe. BEDROOM TWO overlooks the front of the property and has an in-built cupboard and a hand washbasin. BEDROOM THREE could either be a small double room or a good-sized single bedroom which overlooks the garden. There is a FAMILY BATHROOM with bath with mixer tap, WC and washbasin and a cupboard for storage on the landing.
There is a small front garden with paved pathways interspersed with borders. To one side is the SINGLE GARAGE which can also be accessed from the garden. A passageway connects the garden to the front of the property and provides storage room for refuse bins. The garden to the rear is wonderfully peaceful and is currently divided by a large hedge with an area of lawn with borders and paths on one side and the other, an area of lawn which is enclosed by hedging and wire fencing, accessed via a garden gate to one side of the hedge.
The ever-popular village of West Knighton is situated approximately 3 miles South East of Dorchester and within easy reach of the town's amenities and mainline (London/Waterloo) station. Of medieval origins, the village has an 11th century church and a village pub, The New Inn. The village of Broadmayne is less than one mile and benefits from a well-regarded First school, village shop/Post Office and public house.
From our offices in High West Street, turn right and follow HIGH WEST STREET down to the bottom. At the set of traffic lights before the bridge, turn right into King Street and at the roundabout take the first exit/A3143. At the next 3 roundabouts follow the signs to Wareham via the A352. After several miles, take the turning signed West Knighton and continue on this lane for a mile or so. At the junction, turn left following through the village and after the 2 sharp left hand bends and just before the village pub, you will see a sign Gabriel Cottages on your left. Turn into the development and the property will be found on the left hand side over the other side of the large tarmac area.
