Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 2
Beautifully presented two bedroom cottage, with wonderful far-reaching southerly views over the countryside to the sea set in approx 0. 43 acres.

The cottage is all about position and potential. The house occupies an elevated position within a substantial plot with 180 degree views over countryside towards the sea at Charmouth and has the space, subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents, to be substantially extended. In recent years the property has undergone an extensive programme of renewal and refurbishment taking in the majority of the roof, the reorganisation and refurbishment of the kitchen, the refurbishment of the shower room, the installation of an economical pellet-fuelled boiler and the complete redecoration of the property throughout. In short this is a very polished property indeed.

The property is currently organised with a large entrance hall that in turn gives way to a large kitchen, a sitting room and a garden room. It has been suggested that, subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents, the property could be re-organised on the ground floor to create a third bedroom with an ensuite shower room that could be independently accessed. The kitchen is a particularly attractive room and, as with all the principal rooms, is orientated towards the view with space for a substantial dining room to its centre. It is equipped with a comprehensive range of floor and wall mounted units and cupboards with worksurfaces over with an ESSE stove, equipped with an induction plate as well as a hot plate, two conventional ovens and a warming oven, set into the chimney breast. Within the kitchen there is an attractive and practical Butler's sink and space for a large dresser and a dishwasher. Beyond the kitchen is the sitting room that has a brick exposed fireplace with an inset wood burning stove as its focal point and which flows into the garden room that enjoys the best of the views out towards Conegar Hill, Stonebarrow and the sea at Charmouth. Upstairs there are two good bedrooms with the principal bedroom having a double aspect and a built-in wardrobe. The bedrooms share a stylish contemporary shower room equipped with a double sized shower. The property is in excellent decorative order throughout and which further enhances the feeling of light and space throughout as all the principal rooms face south. On the ground floor the floors are laid to a quality insulated Oak effect plank while upstairs there are carpets.

Outside, immediately to the front of the house there is a gated parking area, while further along the lane there is a second gated area of parking. Immediately to the rear of the garden room there is a raised paved terrace with wide countryside and sea views that makes an ideal entertaining area in the Summer months. On the East side of the house there is a drop down to a second terrace, beyond which there is a substantial timber outbuilding equipped with light, power and water that has been used as both the workshop and a Summerhouse. The plot/garden is a substantial one with a wildlife pond to the bottom end and is for the most part laid to lawn, punctuated by shrub and tree planting. Adjoining the gardens there is open countryside and the plot is enclosed by a mixture of post and rail and mature hedge planting.


Mains water and electricity are connected. Private drainage to Klargester biotreatment plant.

Wood pellet boiler for heating and hot water.
