Directional Note: From the main roundabout in Christchurch take the first exit into Stony Lane. Continue on and take the 2nd turning right into Footners Lane. At the end turn left into Salisbury Road and the property can be found almost immediately on the right-hand side opposite the village green.

This detached and characterful cottage occupies an excellent position on the village green in the centre of the village of Burton. We understand that the property was first constructed in the late 1800's and in the past has been the village store, bakery and post office. It is said that the property was often known locally in the village as the 'Marmalade House' as a former post mistress had a penchant for making marmalade. The current owner has occupied the property for the last 6 years and in that time has lovingly restored and redecorated the property throughout and it is now offered for sale in superb condition throughout and offers much charm and character. The village of Burton is situated approximately 1.5 miles from Christchurch Town Centre with its historic 11th Century Priory, Town Quay and various restaurants, coffee shops and bars, there is also a main line railway station to London, Waterloo. Being on the village green itself the property is a stone's throw from the local village shop/post office and doctors' surgery.

An early internal inspection is highly recommended to fully appreciate the condition and character of this property which is approached via a covered porch at the front and once through the front door there is the spacious lounge/dining room with feature fireplaces to either end and there is a further door leading to a reception room/bedroom 4 on the ground floor.

From the dining area there is a trap door with stairs leading down to the considerable cellar area which is divided into 2 separate ares and we understand from the vendor, has been tanked and provides useful space for all sorts of uses or would make an ideal storage area.There are also 2 radiators.

From the lounge/dining room a door leads to a cosy snug which benefits from a feature fireplace with log burning stove and this in turn leads to the garden room which offers a light and airy space and overlooks the rear garden.

At the very rear of the property is the country style kitchen with a fitted range style cooker within the chimney breast. There are integrated appliances to include the dishwasher and washer dryer. The kitchen would accommodate a small table and there is a useful larder cupboard.

From the snug an inner hallway leads to the refurbished ground floor shower room with walk-in shower cubicle.

There is a return staircase leading to the first floor where there are 3 good size bedrooms and an exceptionally well appointed family bathroom with a free-standing claw foot bath with part tiling and wood panelling.

To the right-hand side of the property is a driveway providing OFF ROAD PARKING for 1 car. There is a pedestrian gate leading to the rear garden. There is further scope for extra off road parking by taking down the fence and we understand from the vendor there was an original garage in the rear garden which was removed but potentially could be re-instated with necessary permissions.

A real feature of the property is the delightful country cottage style rear garden which has been lovingly attended to by the current owner. The garden is crammed with a variety of mature plants and shrubs to include camelia, clematis, azaleas, lilacs and climbing and shrub roses. There are a wealth of other plants also and there is a herringbone block paviour path leading to the rear of the garden where there is an area of lawn with timber GARDEN SHED and wildlife pond. The remainder of the garden is laid to loose shingle and there is a degree of seclusion from all sides.
