Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 3
Lovely detached stone village house with a wealth of accommodation and character, in a peaceful location away from passing traffic.

The cottage is believed to have originally been built in the 19th Century and was substantially extended in the late 20th Century to create some comfortable well-balanced accommodation with huge character. The property was originally built as a carpenter's cottage and has retained a great deal of its original charm which has been subsequently enhanced by the later additions built in the same warm local stone, with brace and ledge doors and ceramic floors on the ground floor giving continuity throughout. The kitchen/breakfast room is undoubtedly the daytime hub of the house and is custom built by Marc Smith Bespoke of Lyme Regis with hardwood worksurfaces and an oil fired Aga as a centrepiece with, to one side, space for an everyday dining table. Behind the entrance hall there is a cloakroom, while to the other side of the hall there is a comfortable sitting room centred around a fireplace equipped with a wood burning stove. To the other side the room, opposite the fireplace, there is a bespoke substantial built-in display unit/bookcase. Beyond the sitting room there is a garden room with doors to the garden on two sides and a second built-in bookcase with space for a television to its centre. This room is particularly attractive during the Summer months, taking the sights of the garden and the sound of the stream throughout the day and well into the evening. Upstairs there are three good bedrooms, the principal of which has an ensuite shower room that has been recently reworked in contemporary style. The two remaining bedrooms share a family bathroom. Two of the bedrooms have good built-in wardrobe space while the property has oil-fired heating, double glazing and is in good decorative order.

Agent's Note: The property has no designated parking or vehicular access.

Much of the garden lies to the front of the property and is a plantsman's paradise. The garden is arranged in a cottage style and is packed with mature and shrub planting, designed to give shape colour and form throughout the seasons. To one side by the kitchen is an attractive stone terrace that makes an ideal entertaining area during the summer months while the main body of the garden is laid to lawn edged by hard landscaping and herbaceous and shrub borders. The property becomes less formal the further it is away from the cottage and the closer it gets to the stream, which lies at the bottom of the garden. On the gable end of the house there is a doorway to a boiler room which houses the oil-fired central heating boiler.


Mains water, drainage and electricity are connected. Oil fired central heating.
