A SPACIOUS AND WELL PRESENTED SEMI-DETACHED COTTAGE IN A PERFECT VILLAGE SETTING ON THE EDGE OF CRANBORNE CHASE Wyndbrook Cottage is one of a pair of white painted and rendered cottages, that although much altered and extended over the years still retains the look and feel of the local Dorset style. Inside it is a spacious property with accommodation extending to about 2,250 sq ft and comprising an entrance lobby with a dining room and small study to one side, and on the other side a large kitchen/breakfast room with separate utility room, a sitting room with woodburning stove and beyond that a recently refurbished garden room with a lovely outlook. Upstairs there are three good bedrooms and two bathrooms. The cottage is neatly presented and very well appointed with extensive double glazing, underfloor heating and oil fired central heating. A second entrance into the dining room and a separate staircase up to the 4th bedroom also enables Wyndbrook Cottage to offer the flexibility of a small annexe or a lucrative holiday cottage. However you chose to occupy the accommodation, Wyndbrook Cottage really offers a great opportunity to have a lovely country home or weekend retreat, in a very popular village (with a great pub) on the edge of Cranborne Chase. Wyndbrook Cottage sits back from the lane behind a brick and flint wall with a picket gate opening into a small front garden and up to the two front doors. The majority of the garden, which extends to over 1/3rd of an acre, lies to one side and backs onto open fields with a lovely view towards Cranborne Chase. The first part of the garden is laid to lawn with neat borders running up to a detached garage and parking area. Beyond that the garden is enclosed by tall hedges and trees and kept more natural with a raised bed and path mown through the wildflower garden. Tarrant Monkton is one of the prettiest villages along the picturesque Tarrant Valley. It is well known for the Langton Arms public house and restaurant, and surrounded by the distinctive rolling countryside of Cranborne Chase, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). Although the four Tarrant villages at this end of the valley (Gunville, Hinton, Launceston and Monkton) are very rural they are by no means isolated and there is a thriving community. As well as the pub there is an excellent local butcher and farm shop, a church and busy village hall, and a rather good wine merchants in Tarrant Hinton. Blandford Forum with its historic Georgian market square is only a short drive away and has an excellent range of amenities including an M&S food hall, Lidl and Tesco superstore. For a wider range of amenities Salisbury, Dorchester and Poole are all within about half an hour's drive, and communication links around the village are excellent. The business centres along the coast from Poole and Bournemouth through to Southampton and Portsmouth are all within reasonable driving distance. The A31 is nearby and provides a quick link to the M27 and M3 up to London. The A303/M3 via Salisbury provides another route to London and Salisbury has the most convenient railway station, with a regular service to London Waterloo. There is lovely walking, riding and cycling in the countryside that surrounds the village, and Poole harbour and Dorset's renowned Jurassic coastline are only a short drive away to the South. Mains water and electricity are available at the property. Private drainage (septic tank). Oil fired radiator central heating. Good Broadband service .
