Wonderfully located in stunning gardens within the equally stunning setting of Winfrith Heath, this Grade II listed cottage is simply charming. Brimming with character, inside and out, and with the addition of a 2 double bedroom cottage, presently offering a generous holiday let income.
As you walk up the avenue of sculptured trees you just know this is going to be a delight. Stepping in through the stable front door into a vestibule and then through to the generous SITTING/DINING ROOM, with a 7kwh gas stove to pump out warmth during the winter months, set into a characterful fire place; you can really imagine yourself cosily curled up with a book. With ample space for a formal dining table, this room is surprisingly large. All under attractive beams and with windows overlooking the gorgeous garden. Step up and out onto the HALLWAY and the polished flagstone flooring that runs the length of the rest of house. The pretty KITCHEN has a rustic feel to it and you can almost imagine yourself baking bread, or better still, looking out over the garden while you prepare a delicious dinner. Fully equipped with attractive granite work tops and bespoke timber units, a useful pantry, an inset belfast sink and dual fuel range, set into a tiled hearth, the kitchen has been well considered. From here you step into the BREAKFAST ROOM, with a further gas stove adding to its charm. This room takes you through to the GARDEN ROOM, a wonderful sunny space with timber vaulted ceiling and superb views of the gardens. Back into the hallway and you will find a good sized STUDY overlooking the terrace, open the window and listen to the birdsong! At the end of the hall and into a large UTILITY ROOM, with stable door onto yard which leads to a further external UTILITY. There is also a ground floor WC.
A wonderfully quirky staircase rises to the FIRST FLOOR and the bedroom accommodation. BEDROOM 1 is a good sized double with built-in wardrobes and a contemporary EN-SUITE SHOWER ROOM. This lovely room overlooks the garden and the SSSI heathland beyond. BEDROOM 2, another double has the same superb view and BEDROOM 3 is a large single room with views across the gardens. There is a good sized contemporary FAMILY BATHROOM at the end of the landing.
STABLE COTTAGE sits at the entrance of the driveway and is perfect as an overflow for family or an income. It presently provides a good annual income and consists of a good sized open place SITTING/DINING/KITCHEN and 2 DOUBLE BEDROOMS with EN-SUITE SHOWER facilities. The present owners are able to provide the Cottage with a secluded area of garden for guests and visitors.
The outside space is just stunning; walkways, hidden gardens, ponds, a large terrace, masses of sheltered spots for sitting and soaking up the peace and quiet, fruit trees, a large kitchen garden, green houses and a variety of sheds. It is an abundance of colour and mature shrubs and trees, disturbed only by birdsong. A more tranquil spot would be hard to find.
The attractively paved driveway wends up to the large garage and workshop and sits adjacent to the stable door at the rear of the house. The garage contains a full size pit. Access to the heath and its wonderful walks is a step away.
