Picture postcard listed Grade II cottage in this most sought after village.
St. Nicholas Cottage is a quintessential Dorset village property with part stone, brick and Cobb elevations under a pitched thatched roof. The property is justifiably Listed Grade II as are a number of properties in the village and save for the addition of a garage the external appearance of property has remained unaltered for centuries. The accommodation is arranged over two floors including of note on the ground floor, a cosy cottage kitchen with AGA cooker and Island unit, a dining room with fireplace and wood stove, a drawing room with exposed ceiling timber and a Bay window flooding in light, as well as a particularly nice old granary on the ground floor providing guest bedroom with vaulted ceiling and en suite or a lovely home office. The first floor is accessed via two staircases, one leading to the principal bedroom suite with vaulted exposed Oak timber ceiling, the other to two further double bedrooms and a bathroom and a study / bedroom five.
To the front of St Nicholas Cottage, steps lead up from the lane and an old stone wall wraps around retaining the pretty front garden, with an old brick pathway to the front door, interspersed with mature shrubs, hedging and flower borders. The majority of the garden is to the rear providing privacy and seclusion and is mainly laid to lawn with well stocked beds and borders, an old apple tree and a grass bank, awash with Bluebells and Daffodils in the Spring months. At the rear of the garden is the vegetable patch with raised beds, a greenhouse and a terrace. On the northern boundary is a private drive which provides parking for several cars and access to a double garage. There is also a single garage / workshop integral to the house.
