A charming detached 18th century school house which enjoys stunning views across the valley and farmland.


Set in the heart of the rolling Dorset countryside in an idyllic yet accessible position, the village of Thorncombe offers local amenities including a post office/shop and primary school. Axminster to the west, is a popular local market town with a good range of local shops and a weekly market as well as a mainline railway station to London Waterloo and Exeter. There is access to the Jurassic Coast at popular Lyme Regis, 7.9 miles away, which has a theatre and is well served by several medical and dental practices, a well-known secondary school and is within easy reach of the renowned Colyton Grammar School. There are international airports at Exeter (29 miles) and Bristol (57 miles).


Schoolhouse Cottage is a delightful detached family home with parts, we believe, dating back to the 18th century, enjoying the most stunning views across the valley and farmland to the front with well stocked elevated gardens to side and rear. The property benefits a gated driveway with garage and car port and ample parking for several cars. Internally the accommodation comprises of an all-weather porch over the front door leading into a lobby with a triple aspect lounge and dual aspect dining room, utility and cloakroom with a triple aspect modern fitted kitchen breakfast room which has access to the garden. Upstairs there are four good size double bedrooms: a master bedroom with en suite dressing room and en suite bathroom; two further double bedrooms with large walk in wardrobes and a fourth double bedroom, currently used as a study. Separating the four bedrooms is a walk-through room with fitted wardrobes and cupboards, currently used as a second study. There is also a shower room.


Lawned gardens with mature flower and shrub borders surround the house with a brick built outbuilding which is divided into three separate storerooms. At one end is a delightful and secluded stone and shingled patio area. The gated driveway to one side leads up to a timber framed car port with enclosed garage.
