  • Bedrooms: 3
An attractive individually built detached cottage, delightfully situated in a tucked away position within this highly sought after and picturesque village, close to the world famous Jurassic coast.

Built in 1976 with Purbeck stone elevations under a slate roof and under the same ownership since new, the property was extended in the 1980's creating a spacious home with a host of character style features.

On the ground floor, a triple aspect reception porch leads into a most impressive open plan sitting and dining room with open fireplace and beamed ceilings, study area with feature panelled walls and stairs to the first floor. An inner hall leads to a cloakroom and spacious, well appointed kitchen/breakfast room with oak fronted wall and floor cupboards, electric double oven, halogen hob and integrated refrigerator. Access leads through to a lobby with large utility room and conservatory with doors opening out to the gardens.

On the first floor are three double bedrooms, enjoying fabulous views over the gardens and Osmington village. The main bedroom suite is extremely spacious with dressing room and en-suite bathroom with enclosed bath, double sink and separate

shower cubicle. There are two well appointed shower rooms servicing the other bedrooms.

Outside, the gardens are stunning and a particular feature, being fully landscaped with good privacy from neighbouring properties and extending to around 0.5 of an acre.

A shared tarmac drive from West Farm leads to a parking area and detached garage. Gates lead to the front garden, interspersed with paved paths and terracing, gated access to brick paved hardstanding and a detached stone built studio/home office, referred to as the 'School House'.

Lawned gardens are stocked with an abundance of shrubs and plants, brick paved side patio, stone built store, workshop and outside WC. Immediately adjoining the rear is a paved patio, enjoying a favoured south and west aspect over the gardens which are truly stunning.

Large expanses of lawned gardens are interspersed with a variety of shrubs, plants, rockeries and trees, which lead to the historic ruins of the original Manor House (Grade II Listed) which creates a wonderful backdrop to the grounds and include the remains of the stone mullion windows, fireplaces and bread oven. Gated access leads to a further garden with an abundance of shrubs, plants and roses. Within the ruins of the Manor House is the original historic gate to the churchyard of St Osmund's Church.

Osmington is a highly desirable village situated close to the World Heritage Jurassic coastline. The village itself has a Norman church and farm shop. A mini supermarket, post office, general store, three public houses, takeaway, restaurant, and primary school can be found very close by in Preston. Nearby is the old smuggling hamlet of Osmington Mills with access onto the coastal path and well regarded thatched public house. Within 4 miles is Weymouth, with its sandy beaches and inner harbour, and the neighbouring isle of Portland.

The county town of Dorchester is within approximately eight miles of Osmington. Both Weymouth and Dorchester provide a wide range of shopping and leisure pursuits and main line rail links to both London Waterloo and Bristol Temple Meads. There is excellent walking and riding in the immediate vicinity with a network of bridle and footpaths over the surrounding rolling countryside and along the stunning coastline.
