THE PROPERTY

Hollis Hill Cottage is a charming detached period home, occupying a lovely edge of village position close to open countryside and the excellent amenities of Broadwindsor. The property has main walls of solid stone and is estimated to date back over 200 years with later additions. It is listed Grade II of architectural or historical importance. The cottage has been under the current family ownership since 1996 and over the years a whole number of improvements have been carried out, and although well cared for, would benefit from some general updating. The accommodation is very well proportioned and many of the rooms enjoy views over the village to the surrounding countryside including the well-known viewpoint of Lewesdon Hill. The cottage also backs onto open fields. The property boasts numerous character rich features typical of its age and period including stone mullion windows, cottage doors, exposed beams, window seats, two inglenook fireplaces and a port hole window.

On the ground floor, the principle rooms are all generously proportioned comprising a sitting room with inglenook fireplace and exposed beams, dining room also with an inglenook fireplace which incorporates a stone bench, exposed beams and the feature port hole window, inner hall leading to a large kitchen/breakfast room which is a very social area and offers potential to expose the vaulted ceiling, and beyond is a shower room, utility/boot room, side lobby and useful walk-in store. On the first floor, there is a very large principle bedroom with extensive wardrobes and cupboards, offering potential to create an ensuite shower room (subject to any necessary consents), a second double bedroom and a bathroom. On the second floor is the third double bedroom and a large walk-in attic.
