Owner says, "It's a bit like 'The Good Life' here!" A rural semi-detached with space for chickens, a vegetable patch, and close to a quayside market town too. Freehold
Sitting in a pretty, semi-rural setting, this semi-detached cottage offers super views and seclusion but you are not isolated, and just a short drive to the Saxon walled market town of Wareham. From the private track a path runs along the two cottages. Walking through the picket gate to the front of the cottage you are surrounded by lovely bucolic views. The sunny entrance porch offers space for coats, boots and sitting enjoying the view across the fields. Stepping into the dining room and you immediately feel the cosiness and character of this cottage. The solid wood burner set in an attractive brick hearth warms you on the coldest winters day. From here the wide galley kitchen sits off to the left; fitted units, a waist height double oven, built-in electric hob and masses of work space offer you all you need. Windows to the side and front bring in light and give you lovely views whilst preparing meals! Then into the utility room, which gives you space for the other necessary white goods, washing machine, fridge freezer etc. The boiler is safely located in an enclosed cupboard and a back door takes you out to the large patio and pond. Through an inner hall to the sitting room which has light flooding in from the windows and double patio doors which also take you out to the patio and offer views across the fields. The bathroom is located off the inner hall and is fully tiled with bath tub and overhead shower, WC and wash basin.
From the dining room the stairs take you up to the 2 generous double bedrooms. Both with vaulted ceilings and original beams and superb countryside views. Bedroom 1 has plenty of room for two large wardrobes and large chest of drawers and Bedroom 2 has the original built-in cupboards.
A track from the A352 takes you to the cottages and the parking area which is owned by this cottage. The cottage is accessed via a path from the track, the front has a lawned garden that then runs along the side of the adjoining field, both offering veiws across to the Purbeck Hills. To the side of the cottage is a large patio with a pond, plenty of seating areas for outside entertaining and family meals and again, great views across the adjacent field.

There is a mainline station to London/Waterloo from both Wool and Wareham and the beaches at Swanage, Studland and Lulworth Cove are all close by.
