2 Bedroom End of Terrace House For Sale

An end of terrace period house with an outstanding garden.

Coachmans Cottage is a fine period house located in a quiet, yet accessible, enclave of the town. It is rumoured to have been the coachmans accommodation for Vine House on the old Pelly Estate. A real feature of the house are the gardens which are a delight with a level lawn area, a large greenhouse, a summer house and an al fresco dining patio adjacent to the reception room. This is all accessed from either directly the house or the side of the house along a path from the lane.

The entrance hall has a good staircase rising to the 1st floor and the shower room is to the rear. The reception room is dual aspect, front to back and has a fine period fireplace with wood burning stove, feature alcoves and good storage.

Across the hallway is the kitchen with a good array of units, an electric oven and space for a dining table and access to the garden. Off to the side is a workshop or potential utility room that has scope for other uses if required.

The landing upstairs is generous for a cottage and the principle bedroom being above the reception room is also dual aspect and large for the house. A smaller 2nd bedroom is a double with space for wardrobes and a view over the garden. The family bathroom is to the rear of the house with bath, wc and wash hand basin.

Sturminster Newton is a traditional market town. The town has a weekly market on Mondays, a range of shops including traditional butchers and delicatessen, supermarket, cafes, pub, library, doctor and dental practices, health centre, churches and schools. The town also has an exceptional and active arts centre which provides a wide range of music, theatre and other events, a recreation ground and the surrounding area has some fantastic walking countryside. The larger towns of Blandford Forum, Shaftesbury and Sherborne are within easy reach by road and Gillingham has a main line station to London Waterloo (approximately 2 hours).

From Symonds and Sampson, walk through Market Place in the centre of Sturminster Newton, going past Holebrooks butchers and down to Penny Street. Take the first left and Coachmans Cottage is the last house on the right hand side before the footpath linking to the other side of Sturminster.

A wonderful and private garden. Accessed from the side path or from the kitchen is a patio area, ideal for al fresco dining with a pergola above. The garden is level with a good lawn and surrounded by flower and shrub borders. Backing on to extensive gardens of Vine House, Coachmans Cottage has a lovely rear aspect
