Located in the picturesque Dorset village of Witchampton, this quintessentially English grade II listed thatched cottage is set in an elevated position with delightful views of the Cranborne Chase area of outstanding natural beauty. The property is spacious and well-proportioned, affording great versatility for family living with a generous drawing room and separate sitting room each with feature fireplaces.
Malthouse Cottage was sympathetically converted from two cottages and an attached cart barn in the 1980s. Character features abound in this property that dates back to the 1600s, including latched internal doors and a wealth of exposed beams and timbers. The dining hall forms the heart of the cottage and is complete with limestone flooring and an inglenook fireplace. The adjoining split level kitchen breakfast room incorporates a four oven Aga, granite worktops and hand built units. The drawing room, once the cart barn, features a high vaulted ceiling and full height brick open fireplace, completing this social space that is perfect for entertaining.
An inner hallway leads off the dining hall to the utility room, with additional integrated appliances, cloakroom, and a cosy family sitting room with dual aspect windows and fireplace.
On the first floor there are four double bedrooms all enjoying views over open farmland. Both the master and bedroom two benefit from ensuite bathrooms and shower rooms respectively. A family shower room serves the remaining two bedrooms; all bathrooms have been fitted by Ripples of Westbourne.
Outside there are two driveways providing parking for a number of vehicles in addition to a double detached garage. The large garden has a southerly aspect and enjoys a good degree of privacy with lawns, herbaceous borders, and a cedar garden office/studio. From the main garden a gate leads to a heated outdoor swimming pool set in a slate terrace with views to open farmland.
This property is offered for sale with no onward chain.
