The cottage is a charming stone and thatched semi-detached cottage together with a self contained annexe. It is believed to date back 200/300 years and is Listed Grade II as being of architectural or historic importance. Under the current ownership since 1997 it has been subject to considerable refurbishment including a large single storey rear extension and conversion of the outbuildings to provide an annexe together with a useful large studio/workshop. The front roof was re-thatched in 2016.
The cottage offers attractive accommodation with a whole number of character features typical of its age and type including exposed beams, wood panelling, window seat, exposed floor boards, exposed stone, flagstone floors and cottage doors. There is gas fired central heating with a gas fired Rayburn cooker range together with the benefit of sealed unit and part secondary double glazing. The rear of the cottage enjoys distant country views.
On the ground floor is a reception hall, sitting room with beamed fireplace and wood burner, kitchen/breakfast room with solid pine units and Rayburn cooker range providing central heating and hot water, dining room with vaulted ceiling and sky lights and the bathroom.
On the first floor there is a landing, 3 bedrooms together with a WC with wash basin.
On the second floor is an attic room/occasional bedroom with vaulted ceiling and exposed beams
The annexe features a vaulted ceiling with exposed beams and exposed stone. It would be suitable for a whole range of uses, i.e. for a dependant relative, for someone working from home or for home and income use (bed & breakfast or holiday/long lettings etc) subject to the necessary planning consents.
The annexe has a living room/bedroom, en suite shower room and kitchen/breakfast room with fitted units, granite/beech worktops and electric oven/hob.
Adjoining the annexe is a large workshop/studio (with inter connecting door to the annexe) which could easily be adapted for a living room.
The cottage stands slightly set back from the road with front borders. Double wooden gates lead onto a parking courtyard.
The good sized gardens enjoy a sunny south facing aspect with a large expanse of lawn, wide variety of shrub beds, small ornamental pond and adjoining paved terrace. There are lovely views over the surrounding countryside and hills.
The property is situated in the centre of this popular and picturesque village. The centre is principally made up of period houses and thatched cottages, of the type for which the area is well known. There are very good local amenities, including a post office/shop, public houses, parish church, village hall, Roman Catholic chapel and bus services. The immediate locality is designated as being one of Outstanding Natural Beauty and there are numerous walking opportunities right on the door step. The beautiful World Heritage Coastline is only about 1 mile away at Seatown, with access to the beach and also spectacular cliff and coastal walks through land mainly owned or controlled by the National Trust.
The Georgian market town of Bridport is only a short driving distance providing comprehensive facilities and leisure centre with swimming pool. The historic resort of Lyme Regis is also within about 15 minutes driving distance to the west. Axminster is just beyond with main line rail services to London and the West Country.
