About the property

THE PROPERTY
East Cottage is a very attractive detached period home which was formerly the lodge to the neighbouring impressive country house Seaborough Court. The exact age is unknown but it is believed the cottage dates back some 500 years with later additions. The accommodation is well proportioned and many of the rooms enjoy far reaching views over the surrounding countryside and hills. Character features include exposed beams, inglenook fireplace with former bread oven, window seats, cottage doors and colour washed stone. There is the benefit of oil-fired central heating, replacement aluminium UPVC sealed unit windows, Oil-fired Aga and a solid pine painted kitchen with oil-fired Aga. Under the current ownership since 1972 the property has been generally well maintained, although is now in need of some updating.

The property also offers good parking, garage and a range of outbuildings and secluded well stock gardens.

OUTSIDE
East Cottage is approached through double metal gates onto a tarmac driveway with parking facilities.

DETACHED SINGLE GARAGE and LEAN TO LOG STORE plus TIMBER SHED and GREENHOUSE

At the front and adjoining the lane is a small area of garden with low retaining walls. The main gardens lie to the side/rear and are arranged over a number of levels and down to lawn together with a wide variety of shrubs and paved areas. At the far end is a timber SUMMERHOUSE taking advantage of its elevated position and enjoying lovely far reaching views over the surrounding countryside.

SURROUNDING AREAS
East Cottage enjoys a very pleasant setting with good open views. Seaborough is a peaceful hamlet set in beautiful rolling countryside on the Dorset/South Somerset border. It lies within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and there are many walking opportunities right on the doorstep. Although enjoying a rural location, Seaborough is far from isolated being very convenient to many facilities.

The villages of Mosterton and Broadwindsor are both within about 3 miles with local facilities. The town of Crewkerne is also about 3 miles where wider amenities are available with a mainline rail service to London. The country town of Beaminster is within about 5 miles and the larger towns of Yeovil and Bridport are about 9 miles. The A303 is also within about 7 miles providing fast east - west road access. The beautiful World Heritage coast is about 10 miles away.
