Full Description

DESCRIPTION A two bedroom Grade II Listed cottage situated in the heart of Okeford Fitzpaine. The cottage was once the village jail confirmed on a plaque on the property and the old ‘village gaol’ door still fitted at the front of the property. Although requiring some updating, the property offers spacious accommodation and plenty of charm throughout.

The property is entered into the hallway, which has doors to the sitting room on the left and dining room on the right. The sitting room has a fireplace with a log burner, and archways open into the kitchen. The kitchen is a large space which spans the width of the property, with fitted wall and base units, a sink with drainer, a fitted fridge/freezer, an oven with electric hob, and an under stairs larder cupboard. A door opens into the large conservatory which has doors opening into the rear garden. There is also a shower room on the ground floor which is fitted with a shower cubicle and pedestal hand wash basin, with a further door into the separate WC. Upstairs there are two double bedrooms, both of which benefit from fitted wardrobes and access into the eaves storage.

Outside, the property has a large, mature rear garden. Adjacent the property is a patio area with a side gate giving a right of way access through the neighbouring property. Steps lead up from the patio area up to a lawn area with flower beds and shrubbery. At the top of the garden is an open space used for a vegetable plot.
