About the property
ATTRACTIVE & IMPOSING DETACHED CHARACTER COTTAGE IN DESIRABLE VILLAGE - with garage/workshop, parking, stunning large garden and requiring modernisation - Ideal to put your own stamp on!
Believed to have been built in circa 1760 this character cottage is located in the Dorset hamlet of Shitterton on the edge of Bere Regis and retains a great deal of character with many of the houses being picturesque thatched cottages, with the Bere river running through with nearby riverside walks.
A welcoming entrance hallway leads through to the living room, with inglenook fireplace and exposed beam, with the room large enough to currently hold a sofa suite and upright piano. The room then leads through to a convenient ground floor bathroom with fitted bath, w.c, wash hand basin and fitted shower cubicle.
Also from the entrance hallway access can be obtained to the second reception room, with Purbeck stone fireplace and electric fire (previously open fire) which in turn leads to a sizeable kitchen and dining room, with a matching range of wall and floor kitchen units, with gas hob and fitted oven, with pleasant views down the garden. The kitchen also houses the boiler and has space for a dining table and chairs, with a pair of upvc doors which lead straight out to the garden.
On the first floor, the master bedroom has built in wardrobes and a useful storage recess which leads to a wash hand basin and w.c. The guest bedroom also provides fitted storage and vanity area and the third bedroom also has a fitted cupboard. Stairs then lead to a fourth child's bedroom or attic space but access via the staircase has very restricted head height. The room has a roof light and eaves storage.
The property has an attached garage/workshop with vaulted ceiling. The stunning rear garden has a tree lined outlook and predominantly lawn interspersed with flower and shrub beds with access to the rear of the garage and parking area.
