Enjoying a prime location, just a short stroll to the centre of Dorset's smallest town, is this delightful and charming terraced cottage that has recently been sympathetically restored. The property lies in the favoured and sought after Gold Street, which forms part of the conservation area. The town caters well for everyday needs with an award winning supermarket, family run butchers, post office and dentist surgery. There is also a highly rated primary school. We believe that the cottage dates to the 18th century and rumour suggests that at one time might have been used as a Cider House. Over the last six years our sellers have transformed the cottage into a stylish home with many character features that were revealed during the course of the restoration. More of the sitting room fireplace was uncovered, as was some of the stone work to the dining room fireplace. The original extra wide floorboards have also been exposed and the rear of the cottage has been re-pointed. In addition, the cottage has had a new bathroom suite fitted and new country style kitchen units installed with solid wood work surfaces. Outside, a viewing platform has been erected, which hosts a terrific far reaching view over the Blackmore Vale countryside. The property also benefits from gas fired central heating. Viewing is absolutely essential to truly appreciate this wonderful home and its outside space.

To the front of the cottage there is a pebbled area, which is ideal for pot plant display. The rear garden has been beautifully landscaped with various areas of interest. Immediately to the back of the cottage there is a seating area with original flagstones - steps rise to a lawn that is bordered by shrub and flower beds and shallow stone steps rise to a meandering stone path leading to a gravelled area, the two stores, ideal for garden tools and furniture and steps rising to the viewing platform that has plenty of storage under for logs and other items. The garden is of a good size and enjoys plenty of sunshine.
