A charming 1960s bungalow with glorious country views, set in a secluded rural hamlet. generous, mature gardens amounting to 0.25 of an acre. Excellent enlargement/redevelopment potential (STPP). EPC Band E.


Columba Cottage is a charming detached bungalow which is located in a semi-rural position with glorious country views across neighbouring farmland. Dating back to the 1960s, and sympathetically extended since, the property offers spacious and light accommodation with delightful features such as high ceilings and large windows in most rooms. Under the current ownership, which has lasted more than 20 years, the property has been a much loved home yet scope now remains for sympathetic updating and improvement . There may also be potential for enlargement, either by extending or loft conversion, or possible redevelopment (all subject to any necessary consents) giving an incoming purchaser the opportunity to create a fantastic countryside home ideally suited to their individual needs.

Internally the accommodation is versatile with the flexibility to suit a variety of lifestyles and includes a farmhouse style kitchen/breakfast room, fitted with traditional fitted units,an oil-fired Rayburn and several useful cupboards. The sitting room benefits from a wealth of natural light owing to the large picture window to the rear aspect, allowing this room to fully enjoy the stunning country views, as well as a fireplace with wood burner.

One of the most flexible rooms is the dining room, which could also be used as a third bedroom if required. From here, double doors lead into a large conservatory which enjoys a south-westerly aspect with double doors opening to the garden. The conservatory also gives access to bedroom 2 which is of generous double proportions and features an ensuite cloakroom. Bedroom 1 is also well proportioned and, with a large re-aspect windows, enjoys the same lovely views as the sitting room as well as excellent built-in wardrobes. There is also a family bathroom.


Columba Cottage benefits from a generous, primarily level plot measuring more than a quarter of an acre, within which the bungalow stands in a central position and therefore well secluded from passers by. Divided from the neighbouring fields by what can only be likened to a Ha-Ha, so as not to lose the impact of the views with fences or hedging, the garden offers an atmosphere of great privacy and is therefore the ideal setting for spending time out of doors. Currently comprising areas of lawn interspersed with mature shrubs and trees, the garden offers great potential for further landscaping to create a wonderful outdoor lifestyle. The property further benefits from ample parking and a large detached garage.


The property is located in a picturesque rural setting in the small village of Waytown which, together with the neighbouring village of Netherbury, enjoys a friendly and active community and amenities including a pub, church, village hall, playing fields and miles of footpaths through the stunning surrounding countryside. The charming towns of Beaminster and Bridport are both within easy reach, offering between them a broad range of shopping, leisure and cultural facilities as well as essentials such as doctors and dentists surgeries, supermarkets (including Waitrose in Bridport) and schools for children of all ages. The area is designated one of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site is just a few miles to the south at West Bay.
