The cottage is a most attractive detached double fronted cottage, built of stone and colour washed brick under a slate roof. It was understood to have been converted from a barn about 80 years ago and subject to an extension about 35 years ago. Under the current ownership since 2015 the property has been subject to an extensive programme of refurbishment to a very high standard. The comprehensive works include a new oil fired central heating system, re-wiring, re-plumbing, alteration of the layout, new kitchen, new cloakroom and new bathroom, new sash style double glazed UPVC windows, external and internal redecoration and new floor coverings. There has also been extensive landscaping and new stone front retaining walls. The cottage is now offered in superb order throughout.
On the ground floor there is a small hall with bespoke hardwood panelled front door, double aspect sitting room with fireplace and wood burner, a very large open plan kitchen/dining room with attractive units, BOSCH electric fan assisted oven, NEFF electric ceramic hob, NEFF cooker hood, integrated BOSCH dishwasher and down lighters, together with attractive ceramic tiled flooring and a cloakroom with modern suite. On the first floor the principal bedroom has 2 built in wardrobes, there are 2 further bedrooms and an attractive bathroom with panelled bath with mains shower and period style pedestal basin and WC.
The attractive garden is easily maintained.
There is also unrestricted adjoining on lane parking.
The cottage stands set back and slightly elevated from the lane with attractive natural stone retaining boundary walls, laurel hedging and a 5 bar pedestrian gate with a paved pathway and steps to the front door. The garden extends to the front and side being principally down to lawn together with part raised flower and shrub borders.
Litton Cheney is a picturesque village situated in the heart of the Bride Valley surrounded by attractive countryside, only a few miles inland from the world famous Jurassic Coast. It is a delightful Conservation village consisting largely of period stone and thatched cottages, for which the area is particularly well known. There is a church, village hall, primary school, stream side pub, YMCA, successful farm, organic and other artisan businesses.
The immediate locality is designated as being one of Outstanding Natural Beauty and there are excellent walking opportunities from the cottage.
