Property Summary


Silverbirch are absolutely delighted to be offering Slepe Cottage to the sales market in BH16. An absolutely charming opportunity boasting three / four bedroom , three / four reception rooms; Grade II listed Cob and Thatched DETACHED cottage.

Offering its future new home owners well appointed and versatile accommodation and set upon a very generous plot - to really be enjoyed. This design of cottage (Cob & Thatch) is fairly common style to Dorset. The cottage is located in prominent position alongside the A35 between Lytchett Minster and Bloxsworth in the hugely sought after Hamlet of Slepe very close to desirable village Lytchett Minster / Lytchett Matravers.

The current homeowners have thoroughly enjoyed living at Slepe Cottage for many years and are moving purely to downsize locally. As you will see not only is Slepe cottage well apportioned throughout and very versatile (which is perfect depending on your circumstances), it is in well maintained good order internally throughout all bedrooms and receptions but allows scope for really making it your own. We recommend you use the virtual tour technology to get a good feel of the footprint and opportunity it offers you.

On the ground floor, a great sized boot-style room via side access (which the current owners use as their main access point), a recently renovated cloakroom, spacious kitchen / breakfast room with doors leading out to the gardens; three adjoining reception rooms currently configured as a sewing room, an office and a dining room and of course offering stunning character features throughout. The main reception lounge area (fourth reception) with open fireplace and access to the gardens.

On the upper living area, a spacious principle bedroom with en suite bathroom and plentiful fitted storage, not to mention the wonderful dual aspect windows to front and rear, two further double bedrooms and main bathroom with scope to open up further through into the adjoining 'airing room' again with plentiful storage and possibility to reconfigure as a larger bathroom if it suits.

Originally we believe it would have been a pair of semi-detached cottages and would most likely have had an association with Slepe Farm which is across the road from Slepe Cottage down a private driveway. These farms were all part of the larger Charborough House, also known as Charborough Park, which is a grade I listed building, the manor house of the ancient manor of Charborough, just north of Lytchett Matravers . The cottage was officially listed in 1984.

The gardens surrounding the property are certainly above average in size , with access either side and boasting plentiful parking at the front and side -rear. The rear garden comprises a paved patio area accessed from the kitchen breakfast room and lounge area. This compliments the rear aspect of the property, upon which sits a circular decorative ornamental brick built well and as you can see the garden is delightfully laid to lawn comprising an array of mature plants, shrubs, trees and bushes and fruit trees.

There is scope for a change of use to A3 (restaurant and cafe - light refreshments) as we are of the belief that the cottage may well have been used as a tea rooms. Externally the cottage has been well kept and sits upon a sizeable plot which has been adored and enjoyed well by the current homeowners.

Please note, the homeowners currently have a new ridge on the thatch being completed and can provide official reports of condition. This property has been lovingly restored and maintained over the years and needs to be viewed to truly appreciate the opportunity.
