THE AGENTS SAYS...
Anvil Cottage is a true retreat, set in splendid seclusion in the verdant pastureland of rural Dorset. Surrounded by a large lawned garden, with a lovely vegetable plot, greenhouse, and borders bountiful with roses, Anvil cottage is a country lover’s dream. Inside, the property is just as inviting; the farmhouse style kitchen offers a lovely social space, while upstairs there are wonderful, scenic views from the bedrooms.

THE PROPERTY
The front door opens under a rose covered porch into the entrance hallway. There is a small W/C to the right and stairs rise ahead to the first floor. Doors from the hall lead to the two reception rooms and the kitchen/breakfast room. The sitting room has a feature brick fireplace with large log burner, window to the front and french doors opening to a patio dining area and the garden at the rear. In the dining room there is plenty of space for a large tableand additional storage furniture. The kitchen/breakfast room is the heart of the home with a range cooker, eightseater farmhouse table and a comfy chair in the corner.

A door opens to the gardens and off the kitchen is a utility room.

Upstairs is the family bathroom and four bedrooms: the generous principal room with en-suite, two further double bedrooms and a single room. On the landing is an airing cupboard and a useful built-in store. The principal bedroom is dual-aspect with views over the garden and open farmland beyond. This room and bedrooms 2 and 3 benefit from built-in wardrobes. Bedroom 4 would make a wonderful nursery, home office or craft room; there may be potential to add additional space to this bedroom by reconfiguring the large landing area at the top of the stairs.

GARDENS AND GROUNDS
The predominantly lawned gardens, extending to 0.41 acres, wrap around the property and offer plenty of space to grow your own and a ready made area to keep chickens with a run and house. To the left of the property is a large parking area which is accessed from the road through double width, timber 5-bar gates. Adjacent to this is a sizeable double garage which could also be used as a
fantastic workshop.
