Pond Cottage is an attractive detached house standing in landscaped grounds on the outskirts of the popular village of Langton Matravers approximately three quarters of a mile from the village centre and Parish Church. Originally part of Manor Farm, the cottage is thought to date back to the late 18th Century and has external elevations of natural Purbeck stone under a stone tiled roof.

Immaculately presented and finished throughout with a stylish decor, the cottage is an ideal main residence or investment property within easy reach of open country and the Jurassic Coast nearby. Amongst the fine features of this property is the extremely spacious garden room with double doors opening to the landscaped rear garden which offers the perfect entertaining space.

The village lies 2.5 miles to the West of the seaside resort of Swanage and some 9 miles from the market town of Wareham, the latter having main line rail link to London Waterloo (approximately 2.5 hours). Much of the area surrounding the village is classified as being of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The entrance porch opens to a generous sized living room with attractive brick fireplace, wood burning stove and flagstone flooring. Leading off, the equally spacious dining room with feature brick fireplace, exposed Purbeck stone wall with window seat and flagstone flooring. An archway leads to the kitchen beyond which is fitted with a range of coloured units and contrasting worktops. From the living room, the inner hall leads to the exceptional dual aspect garden room with vaulted glazed ceiling and double doors opening to attractive landscaped garden. There is also a shower room on the ground floor.
