With regards to viewing properties, please bear in mind that there will be strict controls in how we do this. Viewings can only be carried out where there are no vulnerable occupants in a property and where no viewers (or agent) are showing any symptoms. More than one person (but only from the same household and no children) will be allowed inside the property and viewers will need to bring their own mask and gloves and be asked not to touch anything during the viewing. Social distancing will have to be observed as much as possible. Please only view if you are sure the house might be 'the one' for you. Thank you for your understanding!
A delightful and interesting modern cottage-style house with fabulous views, situated in this thriving West Dorset village. The property is a semi-detached house constructed by C.G.Fry & Co about 19 years ago set in a small development in the heart of the village within a short walk of the shop, village hall, school etc. The accommodation comprises four double bedrooms, master with en-suite shower room, family bathroom, galleried landing, entrance hall with cloakroom, spacious lounge with open fire and French doors to the garden, separate dining room, kitchen/breakfast room and utility room. Being built on a curve, the rooms are unusually shaped, which gives the house character. There is an enclosed easily maintained garden at the back of the house with steps up to a small terrace and a garage. At the front of the house are beautiful countryside views which can be enjoyed from both ground and first floors.
