A most charming property nestled in the heart of this most picturesque village with a delightful garden and lovely views. THE PROPERTY Nestled in the heart of the most picturesque village of Powerstock, first glimpses of number 2 Sunnyside are most impressive with its pretty pitched tiled roof and local stone elevations. As soon as the front door opens, there is a real sense of charm and space with very well-presented accommodation to suit most peoples' needs. There are many rooms in the house worth a special mention, including the lovely sitting room with its perfect proportions and a central fireplace with an open fire and stripped wooden flooring. Alongside the sitting room is a good-sized kitchen with a number of wall and base units and incorporating a large six hob Rangemaster cooker. There is also plenty of room for a breakfast/dining table. From the kitchen is direct access to the delightful garden and paved terrace, ideal for al fresco dining and for entertaining. This also takes advantage of the lovely views due to the property's elevated position. The principal bedrooms are situated on the first floor, with two lovely bedrooms and a separate shower room with a newly fitted power shower. Accessed via a loft ladder there is a real surprise of the lovely attic room which would make an ideal light and peaceful home office. To the rear of the property is a delightful but very manageable garden, with a paved terrace, pond, lawned area, large wooden shed, greenhouse and log store. All in all, this would make a wonderful primary or secondary home in a truly idyllic situation. LOCATION Powerstock is a particularly sought-after village principally made up of handsome stone cottages and houses forming a most appealing street scene. In the village there is a primary school, the church of St Mary the Virgin, and the popular Three Horseshoes public house, with the The Marquis of Lorne Inn on the other side of the valley in the hamlet of Nettlecombe. The countryside in this part of Dorset is wonderful, with narrow lanes, rural pastures, undulating chalk downland, coppices and woods. Just 2 miles away is the iconic Eggardon Hill known for its iron age hillfort and from which there are commanding views west over the Bride Valley towards Golden Cap and Lyme Bay. Powerstock Common nature reserve is just a mile away. The Jurassic coast, a world heritage site, is also just a short distance - West Bay with its pretty harbour, and Burton Bradstock home of the popular Hive Beach Café and Seaside Boarding House, the cliff top creation of the former Groucho Club owner. The Georgian town of Bridport is just 5 miles and has an excellent range of independent and high street shops, restaurants and supermarkets including a Waitrose. To the east lies the county town of Dorchester, which is just over 12 miles where there is a further range of excellent shopping and leisure facilities including a main line railway station to London Waterloo.
