THE PROPERTY

1 Knapp Cottages is a fantastic, semi-detached family home which enjoys a highly desirable position on the edge of the popular village of Powerstock, overlooking a nature reserve. Having been fully refurbished over the last 20 years, the property offers every convenience expected from the modern home within the characterful shell of a charming historic cottage. Believed to date back to the 19th Century, features typical of this period of architecture are still seen within including high ceilings and striking fireplaces, now enhanced by a fresh, neutral scheme of decoration.

 

The original cottage has been extended to great effect to the rear, creating an impressive farmhouse-style kitchen/dining room which links with the former stone outbuilding, now converted to a useful ground floor bedroom or study. Previously 2 rooms, which have now been connected, the sitting room is beautifully proportioned and enjoys two fireplaces, one with a wood burner, creating an atmosphere of great comfort. Domestic convenience is well catered for on the ground floor with a sizeable cupboard beneath the stairs providing excellent storage and a cloakroom/utility room which benefits from plumbing for laundry facilities as well as a WC. Upstairs, there are two generous bedrooms and the family bathroom which is attractively fitted with a contemporary suite and stylish tiles.

OUTSIDE

The property is approached from the lane through a 5 bar gate leading to a walled, gravelled parking area at the front and side of the cottage, where a large shed can also be found. To the rear is a primarily level garden which is arranged as a paved sun terrace abutting the cottage, onto which the glass doors from the kitchen/dining room lead, providing a superb setting for al fresco dining and entertaining. There is also an established lawn, surrounded by a fence ensuring security for children and dogs.

SITUATION

1 Knapp Cottages enjoys a tucked away, peaceful position at the end of a small country lane on the edge of Powerstock which rates highly among the many desirable villages in the West Dorset Area of Outstanding Beauty. Within the village there are a variety of appealing attributes including a primary school, pub and excellent walks, with a livery a short distance from the property and an attractive nature reserve, over which 1 Knapp Cottages enjoys views. Nearby Nettlecombe also has a pub. The market towns of Bridport and Dorchester are both nearby, and the Jurassic Coast is easily accessible.
