THE PROPERTY

Haddon Cottage is a fantastic, unique property which comprises a substantial, detached period cottage alongside a detached single storey lodge, set within delightful gardens in a private setting within the sought-after village of Morcombelake. Owing to the property's position, lovely views can be enjoyed across the village to the National Trust-owned Golden Cap estate, particularly from Haddon Cottage and the gardens. Despite Haddon Cottage having historic origins, which are believed to have begun some 300 years ago, and Haddon Lodge dating back to the 1930s, the property is not listed and in recent years has undergone an excellent programme of modernisation with the current owners continuing to maintain the property as a whole to a very high standard. Consequently, this comfortable and characterful home offers every modern convenience alongside highly versatile accommodation suitable for a broad variety of lifestyles including extended families, those expecting regular guests or anyone seeking a property ideally set up to provide an income stream as well as a home.

HADDON COTTAGE

Haddon Cottage offers very spacious and well proportioned accommodation which is presented in excellent order throughout. On the ground floor are two interlinking reception rooms, arranged as a good sized sitting room and a charming dining room, which both connect to the sizeable entrance hallway which is used to great effect as a breakfast room. Alternatively, there is space within the large kitchen for a family breakfast table alongside the fitted, farmhouse-style units, range cooker and integrated dishwasher and slimline fridge/freezer. This is serviced by a well appointed utility/laundry room with an adjoining larder and a door leading directly to the rear terrace, adjacent to which is a gardener's loo. There is also a cloakroom accessed from the entrance hall.

On the first floor, the bedrooms are arranged around a wide galleried landing along with a family shower room and separate bathroom which is luxuriously appointed with a slipper bath beneath a porthole-style window. Of particular note is the principal bedroom which is of very generous double proportions with built-in wardrobes and an ensuite shower room. From bedroom 4, a door opens into an additional room which could lend itself to use for a number of purposes including a fifth bedroom, a secluded study or a playroom, amongst many others. There is also a detached outbuilding close to the rear door which is appointed as a workshop and home office, ideal for those working from home.

HADDON LODGE

Haddon Lodge is a detached, timber-framed single storey dwelling which is appointed and presented to the same high standard as the cottage. Currently used as a successful holiday let, this part of the property also offers spacious accommodation comprising two double bedrooms, two reception rooms, fitted kitchen, utility room, bathroom and cloakroom. Being completely self-contained and set slightly apart from the cottage, Haddon Lodge is perfect for many uses including lodgings for guests, a large home office or to continue to realise an income via holiday or long-term lettings, to list but a few of the possibilities. Furthermore, the contents may be available by separate negotiation if desired.

OUTSIDE

The property is approached via a long gravelled driveway which passes Haddon Lodge and culminates in a parking and turning area between the two buildings. This is bordered by attractive and well stocked flower and shrub borders, with much of the grounds found to the rear of the cottage where there is a charmingly landscaped garden including a series of shallow terraces leading down to a sweeping lawn. Abutting the cottage is a large sun terrace which is framed by a stunning wisteria, believed to be contemporary with the oldest part of the cottage. Haddon Lodge benefits from its own enclosed garden, further enhancing its use as a holiday let or annexe. There is also a double garage at the entrance to the driveway. In total, the plot extends to 0.58 of an acre.

SITUATION

The property is located in a tucked away position in the sought-after village of Morcombelake. Within the village there are a range of amenities including a village hall, tea rooms, farm shop, church and regular bus services, and the pub in Whitchurch Canonicorum is a short drive away. A key asset to the village is the stunning countryside with fabulous walks from the doorstep including the National Trust owned Golden Cap estate on the Jurassic Coast, the South West Coast Path, and the area is justifiably designated one of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site at Charmouth, just 1.5 miles away, and Bridport and Lyme Regis, both less than 5 miles, are all within easy reach.
