Nestled in the heart of the Cranborne Chase, within the village of Tollard Royal is this charming detached period cottage. Much of the beautiful surrounding countryside is owned by the local Rushmore Estate who pride themselves on preserving the area's special character and beauty. This thriving village has a whole host of groups and events going on throughout the year. Residents also benefit from free entry to Larmer Tree Festival and End of the Road Festival.
The village is located conveniently for access to Shaftesbury, Blandford and Salisbury for every day amenities and facilities. The cottage is pleasantly situated near the village pond and directly opposite the village orchard, villagers can help themselves to the fruit.
The property itself offers a wealth of character and charm with the first part of the cottage dating from the 1780’s with later additions. The ground floor has undergone some improvements by the current owners in sympathy with the property's age, including slate slabbed flooring throughout the ground floor accommodation in addition to a feature through fireplace which serves both the sitting room and the kitchen/dining area. Other features to the ground floor include exposed beams in the sitting room, in addition to French doors giving access to the garden. The kitchen is full of character with the fitted units having been formed from period pieces of furniture giving it a French Farmhouse style.
Accommodation to the first floor comprises 3 bedrooms, 2 of which are of generous double proportions.
Externally there is an attached garage, and an adjacent drive way with off road parking for 2 vehicles, and a pretty original well next to the drive. The garden is set out in terraces, with a mix of lawn and planted borders, with lovely views over the village from the top, and a brick built store. Further benefits include oil fired central heating and the property is offered to the market with no onward chain.
The cottage is marketed with a guide price of £390,000.
