This double fronted period cottage is Grade II Listed and dates from the mid 18th Century. The current owners purchased in 2014 and set about transforming it into the beautiful home we see today. Kingswall is undoubtedly one of the most sought after locations in the town, conveniently close to the High Street, with a lovely south facing garden and country aspect to the rear. The kitchen was relocated to the rear of the cottage and enlarged and now provides a delightful dining and family space with bi-fold doors onto a large terrace. The cottage was re-roofed and the first floor remodelled to create a large bedroom with adjacent bathroom, while the second reception room can double as a guest bedroom. Storage space has been maximised with plentiful cupboards and extensive wardrobes in the main bedroom. There are oak doors throughout, together with hard wearing wood effect flooring to the ground floor.
The solid front door gives access to a central hall which leads to the kitchen at the rear. On the right is a reception room (currently used as a bedroom) with a brick fireplace fitted with a gas log burner. Opposite is the sitting room with a stone fireplace and wood burning stove, with stairs off to the first floor and a cupboard under. Steps lead down from the hall to the kitchen/dining/family room, a delightful room taking full advantage of the garden and south facing rear aspect. There is a range of units with wooden work surfaces, two corner carousels and a dual fuel range cooker with ducted extractor over. The dishwasher is integrated and there is space for the fridge/freezer and washing machine. The room is exceptionally light and airy by virtue of the bi-fold door and an electrically operated conservation roof light. On the first floor the main bedroom is generously proportioned with a part vaulted ceiling, exposed beams, two sets of double wardrobes and shelved cupboards over. There is ladder access to a useful roof storage space over the bathroom next door, which has a shower over the bath, a vanity basin, fully tiled walls and pine floorboards.
At the rear, the large paved terrace essentially becomes another room in spring and summer, and is a wonderful entertaining space. Steps leads down to the lawned gardens, enclosed on both sides, with fruit trees, raised beds and a shed with power connected. At the far end of the garden a picket fence secures access to the stream with St Aldhelms Mead park beyond.
All mains connected. There are cupboards either side of the steps leading down to the kitchen housing the consumer unit, zoned wi-fi, the gas boiler, gas meter and a water softener. The electricity meter is in a secured cupboard in the kitchen to the left of the bi-fold doors. Council Tax Band D - £2,289.65 payable for 2022/23. There is no EPC as the cottage is Listed.
