Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 2
Charming period village house in mint condition, with lovely views over the Marshwood Vale and into Devon.

This is one of a pair of cottages believed to have been built circa 1900 and has stone elevations with brick quoining under a slate roof. The property lies in an elevated position with views to the front across the Marshwood Vale towards Pilsdon Pen, the ancient highpoint of Dorset, and to the rear deep into the East Devon countryside. The property has over the last couple of years undergone a substantial programme of renewal and refurbishment taking in many of the high cost items including the kitchen, a shower room, central heating, the electrics and plastering while the roof, chimneys and double glazing are in excellent condition. In short this is a very polished house indeed.

The two main living spaces are the sitting room and the kitchen, with the sitting room having a stone fireplace equipped with a wood burning stove as its centrepiece to one end and to the other a door that leads out onto the terrace and takes in the best of the views to the West. The kitchen is a lovely vaulted space that has had a stylish new kitchen fitted with Silestone worktops, a built-in dishwasher and wine cooler, a range cooker and a fridge freezer. To one end there is a pantry cupboard while the breakfast bar is useful for everyday dining. The floor is laid to attractive yet practical ceramic tile. Off the kitchen there is a utility room with an office area to one end and a cloakroom area to the other, beyond which there is a bathroom that has to one corner plumbing for a washing machine and space for tumble dryer. Upstairs there are two good double bedrooms each of which take in the best of the views to the East, served by shower room that has a double size shower and two storage cupboards to one side. There is access to a good sized, part boarded loft with loft ladder. The property has oil fired central heating and UPVC double glazing.

To the front of the property is a five bar gate that gives way to a substantial area of driveway laid to gravel, providing turning and parking for a number of cars and access to the garage. The garage is double length with a useful workshop area to one end and it is equipped with an up and over door, light and power. To the right hand side of the driveway there is an area of formal garden laid to lawn and edged by mature herbaceous and shrub borders from which to enjoy the sun in the first half of the day. To the rear of the property there is a substantial area of paved terrace that makes a good entertaining area during the Summer months and takes in views to Devon over the adjoining fields. This area is largely laid to lawn, remains a blank canvas and is enclosed by timber fencing.
