A lovingly restored former granary sitting in an idyllic location within a quiet village, perfectly situated to explore the town of Dorchester and the enchanting Jurassic Coast and its attractions.
Situated between the peaceful villages of Winterbourne, Steepleton and Martinstown, this cottage enjoys a rural location that promises a relaxing retreat to the countryside. Attached to the owner's home with fields all around, don your walking shoes and explore the surrounding countryside; an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty by foot, before taking refuge in the local pub located less than 1 mile from the cottage. The historic town of Dorchester, home of the Dinosaur Museum, Maiden Castle and charming shops and eateries is just 4 miles away. Travel 8.5 miles south to arrive in Weymouth, home to a colourful harbour, the Jurassic Skyline exhibition and a beautiful sandy beach.
Make your way up two steps and into the welcoming open-plan triple aspect living space compromised of the kitchen, lounge and dining area. The comfortable lounge area offers two sofas so you can sit back and relax in front of the TV following a day along the coast. Behind the lounge sits the bright and airy kitchen area complete with a Rayburn, drier, dishwasher, Butler sink, fridge with ice-box and French doors to the garden. Enjoy a spot of home cooking before sitting down to the well-lit, spacious dining table. There’s also a WC located on the ground floor. When the day is done, make your way upstairs to the restful bedroom with 5ft double bed, offering enviable views from its very own Juliette balcony with French doors. Please note, there is reduced head height above the bed. Next door, you’ll find a spacious bathroom boasting a freestanding bath; perfect for long candlelit soaks.
There’s much to appreciate outside also. To the rear of the cottage sits a private garden complete with gravelled seating area and well-maintained lawn. Enjoy a morning coffee as you soak up your countryside surroundings or throw down a picnic blanket and enjoy an afternoon in the sun with your favourite book or magazine, or simply make the most of the wonderful views as far as the eye can see. The cottage offers off-road parking.
