A charming detached period cottage in a popular village set in the heart of the West Dorset countryside. EPC Band F.


Homeleigh is a detached period cottage of stone elevations beneath a slate roof and sits in a set back position in this popular village. The cottage has an abundance of character, with a charming brick fireplace and log burner in the sitting room and a farmhouse style kitchen. Having not been listed, the property has modern conveniences including UPVC double glazing and a conservatory which is ideally positioned to enjoy the garden.


The accommodation comprises sitting room, dining room, conservatory, farmhouse kitchen with solid wood units and a Rayburn, rear lobby, utility room and a separate cloakroom. On the first floor are two double bedrooms and one single bedroom, one of which has a cast iron fireplace and hand basin, and a family bathroom. The property has been in the same ownership for a number of years so would benefit from a degree of updating.






Homeleigh enjoys a mature south facing cottage garden which offers a degree of privacy from the village lane.


The garden is laid primarily to level lawn interspersed by mature tress, flowers and shrubs. To the rear of the property is a parking space and semi detached garage with light and power connected. There is a patio area to the rear of the cottage with a path that leads to the main garden.
