The Courtyard Puddletown
Dorchester DT2 8TH
County: Dorset
Sale Type: Sold STC
Ref #: MEY03886


A sunny 2 bedroom end terrace house on the south facing side of a garden courtyard created within the original walled garden of a country house. The award winning courtyard complex comprises a small number of modern cottages and original converted stable block in a very tranquil setting accessed via a private archway. The cottages have been exceptionally well designed for retirement living and have very spacious bedrooms. A single garage is available within the complex. The property has been newly redecorated with newly fitted flooring throughout although the kitchen and bathrooms would greatly benefit from updating. The complex is designed for retirement with a lower age limit of 55, although the properties lend themselves as a lock up and leave for those still wishing to travel extensively but plan for their future. The property has its own small front and rear garden and sits within extensive and beautifully maintained communal grounds with a fully managed service by Cognatum which includes all exterior building maintenance. This property must be viewed to appreciate what is on offer.


Puddletown has an excellent range of facilities including a Doctor's Surgery, well stocked shop, pub, church and good public transport, all within easy walking distance of the property, and is surrounded by a rich variety of countryside and woodland walks. The County hospital and County Town shopping are within an easy 15 minute drive.
