An exceptional Grade II listed, thatched cottage steeped in character,nestled in extensive parkland style gardens and boasting two self contained holiday cottages,with ample parking, pleasantly located in a tranquil countryside location on the Southern Jurassic Coastline.
The Old Nursery is the quintessential English cottage which sits proudly within its plot showing whispers of its past with various fruit trees and other well tendered shrubs. Whilst the cottage has an abundance of period features that one would expect, exposed beams, flagstone floors and inglenook fireplaces with Bressumer beams over there is panelling in the sitting room which has a history of it’s own, the wood panelling was preserved from the RMS Mauretania, a splendid Ocean liner which was the largest ship in the Cunard fleet in1906. The cottage has generous sized, characterful living rooms and three double bedrooms complemented with the bathroom and claw footed, freestanding bath. Within the grounds the old barn has been sympathetically converted into two very tasteful, one bedroom holiday cottages ‘Bluebell and Heather’ which Generate a healthy income. A separate building has been converted into a handy laundry room which is easily accessed from the property.
