Stunning 18th-century cottage with many period features and beautifully handcrafted bespoke kitchen, located conveniently for access to the coast and the famous White Horse.
Full of original charm, this end-of-row 18th-century cottage sits just half a mile from the sea at Osmington. Inside, original features abound with exposed stone, beams and fireplaces, while outside the sunny rear garden backs onto a grassy footpath. Set out on foot and stroll into the village, stock up on local delicacies at the farm shop before heading south to the coast at Osmington Mills (0.5 miles) for a picnic on the beach or a long walk along the South West Coast Path.
Retaining its original bread oven and inglenook fireplace, the kitchen/diner is brimming with character. Bespoke handmade kitchen worktops, an oak dining table and a delightful window seat add to this room’s charm. Next door, a more contemporary lounge has been finished with fresh neutral decor, oak flooring, a wood burner for cosy evenings in and French doors to the garden for sunny days. Upstairs, the three bedrooms are all beamed, with views over the garden to the wooded hillside beyond. Stepping outside, a sunny patio area with garden furniture leads to a good-sized lawn area surrounded by flower beds and shrubs, setting the scene for relaxing summer BBQs. There is ample parking.
Surrounded by beautiful unspoilt Dorset countryside, this property is perfect for keen walkers. After a stroll to see the famous White Horse on the South Dorset Downs, head to the coast at Osmington Mills for a hearty lunch with a view at the Smugglers Inn. Beach lovers do not have far to go, with the sandy stretch at Weymouth just 5.5 miles away and the stunning white pebble bay at Lulworth Cove just 11 miles to the east.
