THE PROPERTY

93 Common Lane is a charming thatched character cottage located in one of West Dorset's most sought after coastal villages, and set just a short walk from the glorious Jurassic Coast. Believed to be more than 200 years old with later additions, this attractive property is justifiably Grade II Listed and has the classic cottage appearance so often seen in picture postcard with main walls of mellow solid stone beneath a thatched roof and period-style features inside including cottage doors, open fireplaces and window seats. Offered for sale with no onward chain, the property offers excellent scope for sympathetic improvement and modernisation, representing a rare opportunity for a new owner to create a stunning permanent residence, second home or letting cottage ideally tailored to their individual needs.

Internally the accommodation is well proportioned and includes two reception rooms, both with fireplaces, kitchen, ground floor shower room and a sun room overlooking the garden, with three bedrooms (two of which interlink) on the first floor. There is a degree of flexibility within the accommodation and, with an integral, externally-accessed store room abutting the sitting room and a fitted WC and wash hand basin in bedroom 3, there is great scope for alteration of the layout to create additional living space, ensuite facilities or even an annexe, subject to any necessary consents being achieved.

OUTSIDE

93 Common Lane enjoys a sizeable garden to the side which extends to approximately 0.1 of an acre and benefits from an easterly accessed. Well screened from the public road by an established hedge, the garden is primarily laid to lawn with flower and shrub borders,

SITUATION

The property is located very close to the National Trust Hive Beach with its popular cafe/restaurant which forms part of the beautiful World Heritage Jurassic Coast. Located within the West Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Burton Bradstock is one of the area's most popular villages and has excellent facilities including a garage/shop, post office, public houses, church, village hall, library and primary school.

Dorchester and Weymouth are within about 15 miles with main line rail services to London.
