A charming house built in the 1990s tucked away in this lovely village with very well-proportioned and light rooms, four bedrooms and a delightful garden. Tucked away near the heart of this lovely village, first glimpses of Chantry Cottage are most impressive with its attractive faade constructed of local stone under a pitched slate roof. On first entering the property there is a real sense of light and space with a large hall and pretty tiled flooring. There are many rooms in the house worth a special mention including the family bespoke kitchen with plenty of room for a breakfast table and incorporating a large amount of wall and base units, a range of Neff cookers and a five ring electric hob. The kitchen also boasts wonderful views over the delightful garden and direct access to the garden via the utility room which is directly adjacent to the kitchen. Also on the ground floor is a lovely dining room which would equally make a very good playroom, a study and a sitting room which is a very good size with a pretty brick fireplace and double doors opening out onto the garden with paved terrace, ideal for al fresco dining. The principal bedrooms are situated on the first floor with a large and light landing and the four beautiful bedrooms include a large master bedroom suite with an en suite shower and bathroom and views over the garden. There is also a family bathroom. The real surprise however is the truly delightful garden which would not be out of place at the Chelsea Flower Show, with a paved terrace at both ends of the garden, ideal for relaxing on a nice summer's day. There is a very pretty brick path that meanders through the garden with a lawn to either side and well-stocked herbaceous borders. The garden is totally private with the church to one side. To the front of the house there is plenty of parking and a double garage. In all approximately 1/3 acre. All in all, this would make a wonderful family home in an idyllic and very convenient location. LOCATION West Knighton is an attractive and peaceful village very conveniently located just a few miles from the County Town of Dorchester, with a regular bus service both into the town and also Weymouth. The village itself has The New Inn public house, a 12th Century church and the adjoining village of Broadmayne has a its own public house, the Black Dog, and a post office/shop, community hall and sports ground. Nearby Dorchester has an excellent range of facilities including shops, restaurants, public houses and supermarkets including a Waitrose, Tesco and Sainsbury's Local. Also worth a mention is the vibrant development at Brewery Square with its cinema, bars, restaurants and leading shops. There are two railway stations with regular services to London Waterloo and Bristol and Dorchester County Hospital. The coast at Osmington Mills is just over 5 miles, with Weymouth under 9 miles away, meaning Chantry Cottage is delightfully situated for coast or countryside.
