The cottage is a classic, substantial and character rich period cottage in a very picturesque location. As the name implies, the cottage was formerly the village butcher's shop and is estimated to date back over 300 years, having solid stone walls under thatched and slate roofs. It is not Grade II Listed, although lies within the Conservation Area. The cottage has been very well maintained under the current ownership. There are a whole number of character features typical of its age and type including exposed beams, an inglenook fireplace, exposed stone, window seats, panelled doors, flagstone flooring and a vaulted ceiling to the second floor. The accommodation is very spacious and well presented enjoying views over the village and distant countryside.
There is also the benefit of an integral garage/workshop with store and a sunny well stocked south facing rear garden.
The availability of this cottage onto the open market is a rare opportunity.
Re-thatching to the rear and the porch plus re-ridging was undertaken in 2015.
INTEGRAL GARAGE/WORKSHOP Bi-folding doors. Power & light. Workbench.
STORE (Former model railway playroom).
The rear garden enjoys a sunny south facing aspect and is extremely private and well stocked. Immediately adjoining is a stone terrace with low stone walls and steps up to an area of lawn, together with a whole range of flower and shrub borders and featuring a palm tree.
The cottage enjoys a very picturesque and peaceful position in a delightful back lane within the favoured old part of the village. Burton Bradstock lies on the coast and is considered to be one of the most attractive villages in West Dorset. It is a conservation village and the centre consists largely of period stone and thatched cottages for which the area is particularly well known. There are excellent local amenities including a shop/garage, post office, library, public houses, church, village hall and primary school. There is an excellent beach which forms part of the Jurassic Coast. Virtually on the doorstep there are public footpaths giving easy access to open countryside, riverside walks and to the beach and cliff tops beyond.
The thriving market town of Bridport and the harbour/coastal resort of West Bay with its 18-hole golf course are both within about 3 miles to the west. The beautiful coastal road is also nearby giving access to the larger towns of Dorchester and Weymouth, both with main line rail services to London and the West Country.
