A detailed planning consent has been granted for a spacious detached 4-bedroom thatched cottage within the Dorset AONB and in a picturesque village setting within the Conservation Area. The cottage is approximately 1530sq.ft, with a lounge, kitchen, dining room, utility room; porch and larder on the ground floor, on the 1st floor are four bedrooms and two bathrooms, 1 en-suite. The cottage sits to the north of the site to allow for a large south-facing garden. Adjacent to the cottage will be a double garage. The cottage will sit in an elevated position with countryside views. Much of the village consists of cob and thatch buildings within the Conservation Area, this one will benefit from lime wash render and a thatched roof.
The Site
The plot extends to approximately a quarter of an acre with a large south-facing garden and is on a quiet no-through lane. The plot is currently being dug out by the present owners. The final building level will sit approximately 0.5m above the line of the retaining wall. The retaining wall needs to be further extended around the plot by the new owners. The plot has a chalk upland surface.

The plot has access to electricity and water but will require a septic tank or similar arrangement as there is no mains drainage. We would advise potential purchasers to check with suppliers before exchange of contracts.
The plot can be viewed on an open-viewing basis but we would appreciate times and dates of your visit in order that we can advise the owners.
