Property description

A charming Grade II listed character stone cottage with garden and parking within easy level walking of the town centre

Sparepenny Cottage is a Grade II listed detached cottage believed to have been built originally in the 1700s on a site of a building that was in existence in the 1500s as part of Shaftesbury Abbey.

The cottage has a tremendous amount of character with a dual aspect sitting room in the middle of the house having a wood burner and original front door. The kitchen is to the rear with a range of work surfaces, electric oven with hob above, 1 1/2 bowl, stainless steel sink space for work washing machine, wall mounted boiler and door to outside. There is a ground floor shower room and on the first floor two bedrooms. There is also an extremely useful traditional cellar. The cottage is located close to the heart of Shaftesbury, a short walk to the High Street via Abbey Walk with the wonderful views over the Blackmore Vale. An added bonus is the cottage has off road parking and also a lovely garden, not overlooked for the centre of town.

The property is approached from Magdalen Lane on to a drive where there is ample parking for a large car. A large stone wall runs around the boundary and the garden is laid to lawn with decking area which in the summer time is in the sun most of the day.
