02 Mar 2016

How do you define a country cottage? There are various definitions: A small house; a small house in the country; a small, old-fashioned house.

The two bedroom Claygate cottage at The Old Orchard, Linden Homes’ development in Charlton Marshall is compact but perfectly proportioned. It’s set in the breathtakingly beautiful Dorset countryside, nestled within this lovely Dorset village. And, although it’s traditional in style, The Claygate is far from old fashioned.

To start with its been built to the very latest building regulations, so it meets stringent energy efficient requirements; it’s secure and it’s extremely well designed, maximizing the space available to give the cottage a light and airy feel.

Downstairs the central hallway leads to a spacious open plan kitchen/dining room which has been completed with fully guaranteed appliances, including a fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washer/dryer, oven, hob and extractor fan.

Across the hall is the living room which has patio doors, so you can open up the front of the house on warm, sunny days and breathe in that fresh, country air. The cottage has its own garage too.

Upstairs there are two good sized, double bedrooms one of which has an ensuite bathroom. There is also another bathroom for guests.

With this modern cottage, you have the best of both worlds – a cosy, stylish, beautifully proportioned two bedroom house in a lovely rural setting. All it needs now is some roses growing around the front door…

Charlton Marshall itself is within a short drive of the market town of Blandford Forum and within easy reach of Poole, Bournemouth and Dorchester.

The Claygate cottage floorplans are available on the Linden Homes’ website.
