DOMVS is pleased to offer this farm cottage in the heart of one of the most popular areas of Preston. This HIDDEN TREASURE provides THREE BEDROOMS and a light, practical living space. A PRIVATE WALLED GARDEN is a further advantage.
Charm and character can be found in abundance at this period farm cottage, believed to date back to the 19th Century. Located close to the coast at Preston and secluded within its own private gardens, the property still retains some fine character features, but is in need of some restoration and updating. The generous GLASS PORCH with tiled flooring leads to a carved wooden front door and open-plan SITTING ROOM. The feature arches and open stone fireplace, with deep wooden mantle and stone hearth, create a unique living space. A wooden latch door leads to an internal turnaround STAIRCASE. An additional archway leads to the INNER LOBBY with access to BEDROOM THREE, complete with built in hand-wash basin and shower cubicle. The KITCHEN/BREAKFAST ROOM has plumbing for a dishwasher, an electric point for a cooker, and plenty of space for wall and base units to be installed should they be desired. The OUTER LOBBY has an arched door leading to a high-level WC, with further access to a second driveway, and a door to the SINGLE GARAGE with electric up-and-over door, power and light.
Upstairs, the LANDING offers two separate hatches to loft space, and wooden latch doors to the following rooms: BEDROOM ONE has views over the garden, and two built-in double wardrobes with a dressing table. There is also a shower cubicle with Mira shower attachment. BEDROOM TWO also has a window overlooking the gardens, along with a vanity wash-hand basin and built-in cupboard. The BATHROOM offers a coloured suite comprising a panelled bath, hand-wash basin, and low-level WC.
The driveway sits behind a feature stone curved wall and mature hedging, surrounding a very private and much loved mature garden, with magnolia tree, apple tree, and a range of further mature shrubs and plants. Stone steps lead down to a flag-stoned patio and pathway, which leads to an arched gate and a further driveway leading to the aforementioned SINGLE GARAGE with automatic door.
A short distance from the property are many spectacular country and coastal walks along Furzy Cliffs to the South West Coast Path and Weymouth town. The beach at Overcombe is a short walk away, and excellent local facilities include a doctors surgery, delicatessen/off-licence, post office, convenience store, St Andrews Junior School, and a garden centre.
From DOMVS office at 7a Preston Road, turn left and continue along Preston Road until you reach Chalbury Roundabout. Take the second exit and continue along for a short distance. The property can be found on the left hand side.
