A delightfully appealing cottage with garden, plenty of parking and a garage, which also has planning permission to extend. Situated in the heart of this thriving village, the detached house currently offers accommodation comprising: three double bedrooms, one being particularly large, a stylishly re-fitted shower room, a cosy lounge with a double sided chimney breast housing a multi-fuel stove, which can also be enjoyed from the dining room, which in turn is open to the pretty farmhouse kitchen. A ground floor w.c. and utility room complete the internal space. Outside, there is a garden to the front (south facing), which is well screened with laurel hedging and parking for 4-5 vehicles as well as a garage attached to the side of the house. The planning permission provides an opportunity to extend on the garage side, providing a double garage with workshop above, as well as a slight re-arrangement of the internal space creating four bedroom, two bathroom accommodation. The house currently enjoys the benefits of solar panels which generate electricity and hot water, these combine with double glazing throughout and oil fired central heating.
The village of Mosterton lies in West Dorset close to the Somerset border. The pretty market town of Beaminster is about 3 miles to the south where there is a Comprehensive School and to the north, about 2 miles is Crewkerne station offering mainline train services to London Waterloo. The village has a strong community with many events throughout the year but especially in summertime and is lucky enough to still have a local shop and pub as well as a Church and school. The village is surrounded by beautiful countryside being primarily a farming area and has a long history dating back to the Doomsday book.
