The home is situated within the sought after village of Osmington, a charming Dorset village with a strong sense of community and vibrant village hall offering a full calendar of activities throughout the year. It is one of Dorsets most famous villages; at nearby Osmington Mills, smugglers in the 18th century used the precipitous cliff faces and hidden cove-ways to store contraband. Today, its maritime history is remembered in the form of the Smugglers Inn which stands on the cliff edge and is a popular local haunt, offering unrivalled views of the world famous Jurassic Coastline. There is an ancient thirteenth century church. The seaside town of Weymouth is 4 miles away where there are several superb marina facilities. Weymouth is nationally renowned for its sailing facilities, together with its lovely sandy beach and safe swimming. The county town of Dorchester is 7 miles distant and from both Weymouth and Dorchester there are regular train services to London (Waterloo 2.5 hours).
The sitting room enjoys a large window overlooking the gardens. There is a feature fireplace with an electric stove, and an option of a working fire (there is a working chimney).
The kitchen offers a good selection of fitted cupboards and includes an integral oven with four ring hob, and space for a dishwasher. The floor is laid to tile. The property features a separate utility cupboard with space and plumbing for a washing machine along with shelves for additional storage.
Both double bedrooms are located at the front of the property and feature a southerly facing aspect with views over the village. The second offers fitted wardrobes and the airing cupboard.
The bathroom is generous in size and comprises a white suite of low level WC, bidet, pedestal wash hand basin and a large bath with fitted shower over and glass screen. The room is fully tiled with fresh white tiles.
There is an additional room with exposed wooden floorboards currently utilised as a dining room, with French doors leading to a part of the garden. Stairs lead to a converted loft room with velux window, an excellent area for an artist’s studio or home office!
Well-tended gardens surround the home, and offers a large grassed area, a patio with southerly facing aspect, and an excellent selection of raised beds which act as a boundary for the property. The bungalow is approached via a set of external stairs leading from the generous driveway, an area providing off road parking for several vehicles.
