A delightful character cottage only a short walk from the centre of the picturesque village of Cerne Abbas.

THE PROPERTY

A pretty terraced cottage with considerable character, which would make a great investment property or second home. It was originally part of the Pitt-Rivers Estate, and has a view across fields to the back. The ground floor offers open plan living space, with original flagstone flooring and a pretty brick-built fireplace with dual-fuel burner. There is also a storage heater in the living area. The kitchen area has a variety of units, with space for a cooker, washing machine and fridge, but would benefit from updating. It has tiled flooring and a back door leading to a small garden. The bathroom, located on the ground floor, has a white suite, including a bath with separate shower unit over, tiled flooring, a storage heater and a window with extractor. On the second floor, there are two good sized bedrooms, with convector heaters. The enclosed back garden has a small terraced area, with outside tap and sink, then a number of steps leading to a lawned area with shrubs and a garden shed. Situation The conservation village of Cerne Abbas, with its fine parish Church of St Mary, lies within the unspoilt Dorset Downs about 8 miles north west of the county town of Dorchester. The village itself has an excellent range of facilities including a general store and post office, tea rooms, 3 public houses, a first school and doctor's surgery, all within easy walking distance from the property. From the front door, it is only a short walk to the heart of the village. There is superb walking and riding in the surrounding countryside along the extensive network of footpaths and bridle ways that cross the beautiful countryside around the village. There are many other good opportunities for sports and recreation in the area with golf and other sports clubs in and around Dorchester and Sherborne, and it is a relatively short drive down to Dorset's beautiful heritage coast line between Weymouth, Lulworth and Bridport.
