Welcome Cottage forms part of a Grade II Listed terrace of period cottages believed to have been built in 1870 in the heart of Canford Magna. The property is a pretty double fronted end of terrace cottage with mellowed brick elevations relieved by Victorian gothic style mullioned windows under a tiled roof. In recent years the cottage has been sympathetically modernised to a high standard whilst retaining a wealth of period features. These improvements include a quality Shaker-style fitted kitchen by Country Image in Blandford complete with granite worktops and a part brick/hardwood conservatory both with under floor heated stone flooring. There is a useful brick built outhouse currently used as an office.
Please see floor plans.
The gardens and courtyards are an outstanding feature of Welcome Cottage. There is a beautifully established and fully enclosed 70' x 44' South facing side garden with mature well stocked flower/shrub beds and borders incorporating a pond and water feature. To the rear of the property there is a private terrace area and further gravelled courtyard behind the outhouse. There is an attractive climbing Wisteria to the front and side elevations of the main house.
Garage and Parking
Welcome Cottage has the advantage of a private detached garage located at the rear of the garden with a parking space to one side. This is a shared driveway with the adjoining neighbouring property.
