3 Bedroom End Terraced House (Now Sold)
Marmaduke Cottage, Bridport Road, Drimpton, Beaminster, Dorset
Marmaduke Cottage is a friendly and cosy three bedroom cottage, with oil fired centrel heating and a multi-fuel burner in the sitting room. Because the house is double glazed throughout this property remains cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
The cottage consists of a porch into the sitting room and a door into the kitchen. The kitchen was fully fitted in 2012 and still carries a guarantee. There is a stable door into an undercover area from which steps lead up to the garden.
The stairs from the first floor go up from the sitting-room onto a landing off which there are two double bedrooms and one single bedroom. There is a large well fitted bathroom with bath and power shower over.
A loft ladder leads up to the converted loft which has two dormer windows with outstanding views over the local countryside. The roof space has been very well insulated and floored and the sides have been tongue and grooved from ceiling to floor. At the sides there is plenty of room for storage.
There is a second quite large loft space which has not been converted.
At the front of the house there is an integrated garage which could be converted into another room in the house with planning permission.
The lane in which the cottage lies has room to park a car and the lane is a very quiet cul de sac.
The village of Drimpton has an excellent community atmosphere with things happening in the village and village hall all the time. There is a local pub and a very pretty village Church on the entrance to the cul de sac.
Broadwindsor, which is two miles away, has an excellent village primary school and a community run shop. Also the Broadwindsor Craft Centre is a thriving buiness in that village
The property is in the West Dorset District Council area and is Council Tax Band C
