The Detail
Charming Detached Cottage with Stunning Countryside Views

This spacious detached cottage, nestled on a generous plot just under a quarter acre, offers breath-taking views of the picturesque countryside. Located in the highly sought-after village of Godmanstone, and just moments away from the vibrant community of Cerne Abbas, this property combines rustic charm with modern convenience.

Historic Charm Meets Modern Potential

Believed to date back to the 1700s, this characterful home is mainly Cobb construction. It has been well maintained, yet it provides an excellent opportunity for you to add your personal touch. The property is accessed via a gravel driveway, with ample parking available. The top driveway is also suitable for parking several vehicles, access is shared with the neighbour.

Inviting Interior Spaces

Step inside to find spacious and welcoming rooms. The cosy yet spacious sitting room overlooking the front garden, features a charming wood-burning stove, perfect for those chilly evenings. The entrance porch leads to a convenient WC and an inner hallway with an under-stairs cupboard. The separate dining room, with its dual aspect views of the front garden and pond, provides a picturesque setting for family meals. With parquet flooring and room for a large dining table, it's ideal for entertaining. The traditional shaker-style kitchen offers plenty of storage with imitation granite work surfaces and a handy large cupboard. The adjoining utility room, accessible from the main driveway, houses the oil-fired boiler, additional sink, and space for white goods. Relax in the sunroom, a tranquil space to unwind while taking in the stunning views of the garden and the rolling green hills beyond.

Comfortable Bedrooms

Upstairs, discover three generously-sized bedrooms. The principal bedroom, situated off a split staircase for added privacy, includes fitted storage and a large en-suite shower room. Bedroom two, a dual-aspect room, offers some of the best views in the house, overlooking both the front and rear gardens with hills in the background. Bedroom three also features a fitted wardrobe and views of the front garden. The spacious main bathroom includes a shower over the bath and a built-in airing cupboard housing the hot water cylinder.

Enchanting Gardens

The outdoor space is a true delight. The front garden features a well-tended lawn and a charming pond. This leads to the main garden, with a circular lawn bordered by stone slabs. Mature shrubs and trees, including apple, pear, and plum trees, along with a rare Japanese ginkgo tree, create a serene and inviting atmosphere. A separate vegetable and fruit garden offers plenty of space to enjoy gardening and the stunning surrounding views.
