Hallway and Bathroom
These bedrooms are connected by the hallway, which offers built-in shelving, bookcases and a feature stone archway which leads through to the bathroom.
The bathroom is currently fitted with a panel bath with shower attachments over and two vanity unit wash hand basins with storage underneath. The walls are partially tiled and the window looks to the south over the garden.

The rear garden faces to the south and is split into several different areas offering fantastic space to sit and enjoy the sunshine. The garden is bordered on one side by a footpath leading to the Fleet and on the other side by fields and is enclosed by tall and private hedges. There is an initial patio area which is accessed either from the front gate or from the sunroom.
From this initial patio there are large planting beds occupied by mature shrubs and plants and a few steps leading up to a large lawned area with a mature apple tree and remnants of the old cottage wall. This then leads to a small pathway bordered by mature bushes leading through to a further lawned area, which the previous owner at one point used as a large allotment planting bed, but which has now been cut back and could be put to a variety of uses. To the side of the property there is a large greenhouse offering plenty of space for potting and planting. The garden faces to the south and can enjoy sun throughout the day, though several large trees to the east may take away some of the morning sun. The bush on the western side of the garden border could also be removed offering views over the fields and fantastic views of the sea and towards West Bay and Lyme Regis.
