Dormers Cottage has been restored and updated to a high standard in recent years, and has many character features including an inglenook fireplace, a wealth of exposed beams and timbers, and latched, ledged and braced oak internal doors.
The kitchen has been completely re-fitted, with framed cabinets, oak work surfaces, double butler's sink, Italian marble floor, Smeg range cooker, and integrated dishwasher and fridge. There is also a large utility room with a door to the garden.
The ground floor bathroom has a free standing rolltop bath, and the first floor boasts two spacious double bedrooms and a shower room.
A 5-bar gate leads to a paved and stone driveway giving space to park several vehicles, and an attached garage, and the attractive, private garden is screened to the front by a high laurel hedge. There are established shrubs including rhododendrons, conifer and holly, a flat lawn and paved terracing.
Originally built in the 18th century and now around 300 year old, this attractive cottage has lime rendered, mostly cob walls, and the water reed thatch was replaced in 2016 by Kevin Hammond of Fordingbridge (with a 4-year warranty.) Dormers Cottage is connected to all mains services and has timber leaded windows, oak flooring and a part gas heating system with electric heaters to the first floor.
