£695,000 via Woolley & Wallis, Fordingbridge: 01425 209371

A beautifully refurbished, extended 4-bedroom character cottage in the heart of the sought after village of Cranborne believed in parts to date back approximately 180 years. NO ONWARD CHAIN.

Butts Cottage is a lovely, detached period cottage that occupies a central position within the thriving village of Cranborne, within walking distance of all principal village amenities. The cottage has been extensively remodelled and extended during the present owners' tenure and is presented in beautiful condition throughout, with well-proportioned rooms on both floors that benefit from a high degree of natural light. The ground floor is home to an impressively spacious kitchen/dining/living room, a separate sitting room and a generous ground floor bedroom with en suite wet room, that could serve equally well as a further ground floor reception room. The sense of space on the ground floor is echoed by the three bedrooms on the first floor, two of which are sizeable double rooms and one has the benefit of an en suite. Externally, the cottage sits to the front of a private rear garden and there is ample off road parking space alongside. NO ONWARD CHAIN.

The property is located in the heart of the sought after village of Cranborne, tucked just inside Cranborne Chase, a National Landscape and designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty that covers 380 square miles of countryside, overlapping the boundaries of Wiltshire, Dorset, Hampshire and Somerset. A diverse natural landscape, Cranborne Chase is also recognised as an International dark Skies Reserve. The popular community of Cranborne offers a good range of local facilities including reputable primary and middle schools, an excellent, Cranborne Estate managed village shop, a Post Office, public house, Garden Centre and restaurant, all of which is within close walking distance.

Cranborne itself is well positioned to capitalise upon the local road network, and there is ready access to the Avonside town of Fordingbridge, the Cathedral City of Salisbury, Blandford and Wimborne. The surrounding Cranborne Chase provides myriad walking, cycling and riding opportunities amidst the lovely rolling Downland countryside.

A 5-bar wooden gate opens to gravelled driveway running alongside the property leading to an open timber-framed car port with slab base, beyond which is a further gravelled area.

The garden is primarily located to the side and rear of the house where there is two interconnected patio and seating areas with low level retaining stone walls. For ease of maintenance the garden is principally laid to lawn that gently rises away from the house, again with low level retaining stone walls. A garden shed is located in one corner.

We are advised that a small section of garden located in the north west corner of the garden is currently rented on an annual basis from Cranborne Estate for £150 p.a.
