SITUATION

Winterborne Kingston is nestled in the countryside betwixt Wimborne and Dorchester, just a few minutes South of Blandford. Cobblers Cottage is one of two and sits adjacent to the Village Hall of this small, thriving village which also has a local pub, village school and a bus service running to the popular market towns of Blandford and Dorchester. Other amenities including a doctor's surgery, post office and shop can be found in nearby Bere Regis (2 miles and on the bus route).

THE PROPERTY

The cottage is thought to date back to the 18th century but has been extended over the years including the addition of a cobbler's shop in Victorian times, which is now a delightfully sunny and bright snug/study. Period features abound (such as the inglenook fireplace and bread oven in the sitting room and brick fireplace in the dining room and are in perfect harmony with the very thorough refurbishment works undertaken by the current owners which includes a new roof (with reclaimed slate tiles), windows, combi boiler and heating system, chimney lining, full electrical and all new plumbing, dampproof with guarantee, all new kitchen and bathroom, broadband phone line and so very much more.

The ground floor is well laid out with an entrance porch opening to a comfortable sitting room, a dining room opening to the kitchen, the snug/study, a good-sized utility room and family bathroom. Upstairs there is good headroom height and three nicely appointed double bedrooms (one with an ensuite wc).

GARDEN AND GROUNDS

The cottage has a pretty, walled cottage garden to the front with flower beds and a seating area. To the rear a charming, walled garden with flower beds, a stone patio with French doors to the sitting room and a raised wood deck is the perfect spot to sit and relax – no lawn mower required! A brick arch leads to the garden store, log store and a detached single garage.
