A most attractive period stone and thatched cottage, delightfully situated in this highly sought after and picturesque village, close to the world famous Jurassic coast.

Dating from circa 1740 and originally believed to be a blacksmiths, this detached cottage has a host of character features typical of its age and type including deep sill windows, exposed beams and inglenook fireplace.

Under the current ownership for the past 20 years, the cottage has been subject to considerable improvement and modernisation and well-presented throughout.

On the ground floor, side access leads into an attractive hand built kitchen/breakfast room with a range of wall and floor cupboards, built in Bosch double oven and hob, enjoying a triple aspect. The sitting room is a particular feature with impressive character features, exposed beams and original inglenook fireplace with multi fuel stove and original cupboard staircase to the main bedroom above. Double doors lead into a dining room extension with patio doors opening to the rear garden and stairs to the first floor.

On the first floor are 3 double bedrooms and family bathroom. 2 of the bedrooms enjoy a double aspect with the main bedroom having stairs back to the sitting room together with freestanding wardrobe.

Outside, timber gates to the side lead onto a large tarmac driveway with off road parking for numerous cars and leading to a detached double garage. Attached to the rear of the cottage is a useful utility store housing gas fired boiler. Immediately adjoining the rear is a paved patio with stone retaining walls, stocked with a variety of shrubs and plants.

The gardens are a real feature, enjoying a favoured south west aspect and privacy from neighbouring properties. There are large expanses of lawned gardens, interspersed with a variety of shrubs and plants, various fruit trees and summerhouse.
