A BEAUTIFULLY PRESENTED AND SYMPATHETICALLY RESTORED GRADE II LISTED COTTAGE, SET IN THE VERY HEART OF ONE OF DORSET'S MOST PICTURESQUE VILLAGES, WITH THE OPTION TO ACQUIRE THE NEIGHBOURING PROPERTY TO CREATE ONE EXCEPTIONAL FAMILY HOME, OR INDEED AN ADDITIONAL INCOME STREAM. Myrtle Cottage is a most attractive and beautifully presented Grade II Listed property, constructed of stone elevations under a thatched roof, and is superbly located in the pretty village of Netherbury. The property is adjoined by one other; Pear Tree Cottage, which is for sale separately. They originally formed one large house that was later split into two, but there is planning permission and listed building consent in place to join them together again if required. Having been sympathetically restored by the current owners, they have been successfully holiday let for a number of years and offer a range of possibilities and uses. With wonderfully light and well-proportioned rooms Myrtle Cottage has a cosy yet spacious feel throughout with an abundance of period features including exposed timbers, window shutters and a large inglenook fireplace, adding to its charm and appeal. The garden path leads through the pretty front garden to the main door of the cottage, which opens into the spacious central hallway with rear door to the end. To one side is the fabulous kitchen / dining room. With dual aspect windows and ample space for a large dining table this room is a light and bright space, ideal for entertaining. To the other side of the hallway is the comfortable sitting room, with an attractive inglenook fireplace with open fire and original bread oven, retained from the cottage's days as the village bakery, exposed timbers and a cosy reading nook. Leading from this lies a useful study area and downstairs shower room. The former barn has been cleverly converted into a family room / snug. With windows to two sides and large, partially glazed doors leading to the rear garden, this light and airy room is a useful addition as a second reception room. However, with a separate staircase rising to a large bedroom with bathroom, the independent access this room allows could equally lend itself to a variety of uses, such as guest accommodation or indeed multigenerational living. The main staircase leads from the kitchen to the rest of the first floor accommodation, with a large landing with study area, two large double bedrooms with fitted cupboards and a good sized family bathroom. All of the accommodation is beautifully presented and maintained to a very high standard. All in all this superb, characterful cottage would make a wonderful primary or secondary home, with the added advantage of the smaller adjoining Pear Tree Cottage for sale to open up a range of further possibilities. OUTSIDE A formal lavender hedge lines the pathway leading to the front entrance, with a climbing wisteria complementing the pretty stone facade. The rear garden is a true delight, with a large lawned area bordered by mature trees and shrubs with views to the village church. There is a private driveway with parking for several vehicles, and in addition, there is planning permission in place to erect a detached double timber framed cart shed at the rear of the property.
