About the property
A CHARACTER COTTAGE IN A QUAINT RURAL LOCATION
A delightful detached cottage located in the quaint village of Owermoigne. The village itself has a well-stocked farm shop, petrol station, village hall and a social club with a bar for village members. Some of Dorset's most iconic landmarks, such as Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove, are within easy reach. The coast (Ringstead Bay) is an hour's walk or 10 minutes by car, Wareham, Dorchester and Weymouth only a short drive. The nearest railway station, on the Weymouth-London line, is a mere 6-minute drive away in Moreton.
Set in a large plot measuring approximately 0.23 of an acre, this former Post Office, established in 1840, offers an abundance of character. The front porch opens into the entrance hall, with stairs to the first floor. The sitting room is double aspect and offers views over the gardens and a feature fireplace. The dining room is front aspect with a window seat and ample space for a dining suite. The kitchen/breakfast room is situated to the rear of the property and has a range of floor and wall mounted units with a "Rangemaster" cooker and cooker hood. A door leads out to the garden, a second double door leads directly onto the patio, and a further door leads to the utility room, which has a sink unit and space for four appliances. A door from the utility room gives access to a WC. Upstairs, there are three bedrooms, two of which benefit from walk-in cupboard space. The bathroom has a bath with a shower attachment, heated towel rail, WC and washbasin.
The front garden is mainly laid to lawn, with a driveway providing parking for several cars. The detached double garage is located to one side of the garden and has boarded loft space with a pull-down ladder. This could easily be converted into further accommodation, subject to the necessary permission. A natural woodland area with a small pond runs the width of the back garden, providing a quiet, reflective space. Within the woodland, there is a detached log cabin with two office rooms, and three work-spaces. There is also a shepherd's hut which is fitted with a seating area and a wood burner. The large garden is well established with mature trees and shrubs, and has a secluded, paved patio area ideal for al fresco dining.
Further benefits include gas-fired central heating and recently fitted double glazing.
