14 Gold Hill is a truly quintessential 2-3 bedroom Grade II listed thatched character cottage situated on the much sought after Gold Hill in Shaftesbury. This beautiful property retains many character features and hallmarks of its history, including exposed wooden beams and inglenook fireplace, whilst benefitting from sympathetic remodelling and modernisation over the current vendors ownership, creating a flowing, light and deceptively spacious home.
The immaculately presented accommodation is arranged over four floors and consists of :
On the ground floor a charming dual aspect open plan sitting room/dining room with a attractive window seat and a glorious inglenook fireplace, that is currently unused. The bespoke kitchen/breakfast room is situated off the sitting room to the rear and is well appointed with lovely views across the surrounding Blackmore Vale countryside. The kitchen has a range of wall and base units and some integrated appliances. There are several useful storage cupboards and ample space for a breakfast table. Completing the ground floor is an entrance hall with recessed doorway allowing the entrance hall to be closed off from the ground floor.
On the lower ground floor is the master suite, a wonderful double bedroom with patio doors leading to the rear garden terrace, ample walk through storage in a dressing room and a shower room, that has a washing machine cupboard within it. There is in addition a rear lobby, the perfect conduit when coming in and out of the garden via a separate back door.
On the second floor there is a further well proportioned double bedroom, that is a generous size and has a lovely exposed brick wall. The further bedroom is a sizeable single bedroom or useful study. The bedrooms are serviced by a well appointed family bathroom.
A large loft storage area is accessed from the second floor via a hatch & drop down wooden stairway & is boarded off & has lighting.
The flexibility of this home is vast, having been a much loved family home & B&B, & could be a potential holiday let or the picture perfect weekend getaway. We thoroughly recommend viewing this property to fully appreciate the charm and character this unique and unquestionably special home has to offer.
