A quintessentially pretty Dorset cottage on the market for the first time since 1963, occupying a large and secluded plot in the centre of this popular village.
In many ways Tudor Cottage is the epitome of a traditional Dorset cottage, with stone walls, leaded light windows all under a thatched roof which was re-covered in recent years. It is Listed Grade II and has an interior offering a wealth of charm and atmosphere, characterised by features such a cross beamed ceiling in the drawing room with a fine dressed stone fireplace, window seats and exposed crook trusses. The house has been in its present ownership since 1963 and has consequently being offered for sale for the first time in 53 years. Whilst the house does need modernisation and some fabric renewal, given the quality of its situation, it is considered to have enormous potential.
The frontage to Church Street takes the form of a stone wall. An entrance leads through to a gravelled parking and turning area, adjacent to which is a garage. The gardens are level and stretch out to the south of the house, where a paved terrace overlooks a sweep of level lawn set with fine, mature trees. There is a kitchen garden area and the whole plot offers a good degree of peace and seclusion.
