Quarr Lane, Poole, Dorset


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 3
A delightful 3 bedroom detached Grade II Listed 18th century thatched cottage along with a detached barn comprising a 1 bedroom apartment and a substantial double garage, tucked away off a long, private lane on the south side of Lytchett Matravers village, with some outstanding views over the surrounding countryside towards Brownsea Island and the Purbeck Hills.

This beautiful period cottage extends to just over 1000ft, and the apartment and garaging amount to over 1850ft. Both are presented in exemplary condition, and no expense has been spared in their restoration and refurbishment. Quarr Barn currently generates an annual income of circa £17,000.

The cottage is traditionally constructed of brick-faced cob, with a ridged thatched roof. It is connected to mains electricity and water, and has private drainage and oil fired central heating. The barn is heated by an airsource heat pump.

There are outstanding, attractively landscaped gardens featuring a winterborne stream.

Quarr Lane is a truly idyllic rural setting. The centre of Lytchett Matravers village, just 1.3 miles away, provides local shops and a Primary School, and the towns of Wareham and Poole are about 5 and 7 miles away respectively. The area is well served by both state and independent schools.

An entrance vestibule leads to a utility room and a useful storage room.

There is a spacious lounge with an inglenook fireplace, a beamed ceiling, and a stable door overlooking the garden. There is a separate dining room with a beamed ceiling, and a refitted country kitchen with quartz work surfaces, high quality units, oven, further warming oven and Calor gas fired hob.

The bathroom features an extra length whirlpool bath.

On the first floor there are 3 bedrooms. Bedroom 1 has wall-to-wall wardrobes, and bedroom 2 has a double wardrobe, a shower cubicle and a door to an en suite cloakroom.

In the grounds of the cottage, the second dwelling has been constructed (to housing standards) of brick and tile, in the style of a barn, in keeping with the rural surroundings.

The ground floor comprises a generous double garage and workshop (with WC) plus additional carport, log store and barn store, which could be adapted to provide further garaging, or converted into accommodation, subject to planning consent.

The first floor is currently arranged as an apartment extending to about 850ft, comprising a double bedroom with a south facing balcony overlooking beautiful countryside and the Purbeck Hills, a modern en suite shower room, and an open plan lounge/kitchen with a vaulted beamed ceiling and a large picture window giving impressive rural views.

There are beautifully designed and well stocked gardens.
