Renovated TWO bedroom character cottage located in the sought-after village of Portesham. Off-road parking for TWO cars. Landscaped garden with rear access & TWO reception rooms.
An exceptional example of a tasteful, two-bedroom cottage dating back to the 1800s. The owner has renovated this property to a beautiful standard since initially moving in, in 2018. The SITTING ROOM is presented beautifully. The inglenook fireplace makes a wonderful central feature to this room, still rooting the property back to its character roots but with the tasteful decorative touch of deep lilac coloured walls, complimented by thick, high-quality carpet.
The DINING ROOM also serves as the entrance into the property and access to the first floor. A modern but rustic style, hard wearing wooden floor is laid throughout this room which is sufficient in size to accommodate meals with family or guests. The KITCHEN has a lovely view out to the rear garden with dark grey gloss units and white, quartz effect laminate worktops, with an integrated washing machine, eye level oven and electric induction hob. The BATHROOM was also fully renovated with dark wood flooring, a large walk-in shower, floating bowl sink and modern WC. There’s also a small privacy window for ventilation. The CONSERVATORY currently serves as more of a utility room for the property and leads out to the feature landscaped garden.
The FIRST FLOOR landing has a window looking over the rear garden and into the fields beyond and leads into the two bedrooms. The bright and airy, dual aspect, MASTER BEDROOM is spacious enough for a Kingsize bed with two, built in wardrobes with further room for additional standing units. BEDROOM TWO is configured as a single, guest bedroom/hobby room with further built-in storage. It’s also worth noting the thick, high-quality carpet in the sitting room, can also be found on the stairs, landing and both bedrooms.
This property has two allocated parking spaces to the front of the property. The REAR GARDEN has undergone a huge amount of work to create a flat, easily manageable and enjoyable place to be. The main lawned section is laid with high quality artificial grass, with various boarders around the garden showcasing some beautiful flowers, shrubs and bushes. There’s also a small log shed and a rear gate, leading over the small stream behind the property. You can also access the main road from the rear of the property with access granted through a yearly renewed license with the owner of the land behind.
I always search for that ‘feeling’ when coming round to appraise a property. How does it feel when you are inside? How does it feel when you are in the garden? Is it accommodating and cool in the Summertime? Would it be warm and cosy in the Winter? This property ticks all those boxes for me. You can tell great love and care has been put into making this cottage what it is today. A perfect home with great neighbours for retiring into, a perfect home for anyone aspiring to live the village life, a lovely freehold property for a holiday let investment or second home. A place which has been so tastefully decorated you could imagine this property as a feature piece in a lifestyle magazine.
The parking to the front of this property is a great addition and its general location means you are enough away from the hustle and bustle of local towns but still only a short drive away from them, relatively speaking. I would highly recommend anyone looking for the above to get in touch.
The village of Portesham can be found approx. 6 miles southwest from Dorset’s County Town of Dorchester and superbly located for the World Heritage Jurassic Coastline, South West Central Coast Path and only a short drive to other places such as Weymouth and the famous Abbotsbury Sub Tropical Gardens.
