THE PROPERTY

Seven Dwarfs, 105 Southover is a delightful thatched cottage which occupies an enviable position towards the end of this no-through lane close to Burton Bradstock village centre, beach and coast path. Thought to be one of the oldest properties in the village with origins in the early 1700s, and extended to great effect in the 20th century, this endearing cottage is full of character features providing lasting reminders of its extensive history, now dovetailed with all the usual modern conveniences.

Entering the property through the front door, the lasting first impression is of spacious rooms with modern convenience catered for at every turn as you are welcomed through the stable front door, through the entrance lobby and into the expansive dining hall which benefits from a forgiving tiled floor and sliding glass doors to the rear courtyard. From here a door opens into the wonderful sitting room which, with a striking feature inglenook fireplace, exposed beams and wood floors, sets an appealing, comfortable atmosphere for all types of entertaining. Also on the ground floor is the kitchen which benefits from an integrated double oven and gas hob and space for a dishwasher, and a cloakroom. Upstairs there are three double bedrooms, each with built in storage and one benefitting from an ensuite shower room, alongside the family bathroom and a useful laundry cupboard with plumbing for a washing machine.
