A charming Grade II Listed four bedroom cottage with an enchanting, deep garden in the heart of this sought after village.

Crown Cottage is believed to date back to the 16th century and has a wealth of character mixing a fine blend of period features with modern fitments.

An open covered porch forms the entrance to the house with the front door opening into the entrance hall with doors to the kitchen and sitting room.

The shaker style kitchen has a range of floor and wall mounted units with wooden worktops and an oil fired Aga. From the kitchen you can access the dining room with a fitted storage cupboard, room for table and chairs and French doors opening out to the garden. An inner hall, off the kitchen, takes you down to a good size utility room which provides space for further white goods. From the hall there is also access to a back door leading outside and a modern shower room with shower, w/c and hand wash basin.

The sitting room is lovely room brimming with character with exposed beams and exposed brick inglenook fire with inset wood burning stove. Leading off the sitting room is a study/play room.

Returning to the entrance hall and stairs rise to the first floor landing which has four bedrooms, three of which are double rooms. The master bedroom benefits from fitted wardrobes and an en-suite bathroom.

Outside, the cottage enjoys a beautiful garden which gradually rises with different areas to enjoy the sun throughout the day. The garden is bordered by a variety of flowers and mature shrubs with raised area of decking at about halfway taking in views over the property to the surrounding countryside.

The garden also benefits from a summer house and a gate at the top providing rear access via a footpath.

Crown Cottage is conveniently set within Piddletrenthide which lies in the heart of the Piddle Valley. It is within a conservation area and the village has a variety of local amenities including a store/post office, parish church, two public houses, a village hall, a modern first school and a hairdresser.
Dorchester is about nine miles away and provides a selection of shopping, educational and recreational facilities. The historic Abbey town of Sherborne is about eleven miles to the north.
Both towns have a mainline railway station to London (Waterloo).
There are a variety of sporting and leisure pursuits in the area including golf at Dorchester (Came Down), Sherborne and Yeovil; sailing and water sports along the Jurassic coast.

There is excellent walking and riding in the immediate vicinity with a network bridle/footpaths.

The area is well placed for both state and independent schools. The Piddle Valley Church of England First School, which was rated outstanding in its latest Ofsted report, is within the village and is the feeder school for St. Marys Church of England Middle School in Puddletown.
