A spacious character home with scope for improvement, located in a tucked-away position close to the centre of Burton Bradstock. Versatile accommodation including 4 bedrooms and 3 reception rooms. Large garden, parking and detached double garage. No forward chain. EPC Band C.


Kitty's Cottage is a fascinating character home which is located in a tucked away position on a no-through road close to the centre of Burton Bradstock. Believed to date back more than 200 years, and greatly enlarged by a two storey extension in the 1990s, the property offers spacious, flexible accommodation, particularly in the more modern part, alongside character features in the original rooms such as exposed beams and parquet flooring. Under the current ownership this endearing property has been a much cherished full-time home, yet there is now scope for a new owner to undertake improvements and personalisation to ensure this superb cottage can continue to cater for the modern lifestyle.

The benefit of the extension are felt to their fullest advantage upon exploring inside as the proportions and flexibility of the rooms comes into focus. On the ground floor there are two reception rooms, a kitchen/breakfast room with adjoining cloakroom/utility room and a large hobby room which would alternatively lend itself to use as another reception room, home office or ground floor bedroom. Upstairs there are four bedrooms, one of which forms the entire upper floor of the modern extension, and the family bathroom. It is thought that the modern extension offers scope to create a self contained, 2 storey annexe (subject to any necessary consents), giving the opportunity to create a versatile home ideally suited to a variety of lifestyles.


Kittys Cottage stands in glorious, established gardens which adjoin the village allotments and measure just over a quarter of an acre. Stretching down to the picturesque River Bride, where a seating area overlooks the meandering water, excuses for spending time out of doors in this tranquil garden are everywhere. Those with green fingers will appreciate the greenhouse, the mature fruit trees and the exciting array of plant life, with scope for further landscaping if desired.

Parking is well provided for on a gated driveway which also leads to a detached double garage.
