A house on Dorset’s most famous street has become available and this is how much it costs to buy

Once voted as one of the UK’s prettiest streets, Gold Hill is a true Dorset gem. It was immortalised by Ridley Scott’s (Gladiator) 1973 commercial ‘Boy on Bike’ for Hovis and the stunning views of Thomas Hardy’s Blackmore Vale are well worth the huff and puff to the top.

Updown Cottage (the cream coloured house located approximately half way up Gold Hill) has now come on to the market. It’s believed to date back as far as the 16th century, is Grade 2 listed and boasts a number of period features, including an inglenook, open fireplace, wooden beams, cottage windows with shutters and plenty of character and charm.

The cottage has four bedrooms, a kitchen and dining room, two sitting rooms and three bathrooms. The house also has a beautiful and matured terraced garden to the rear with views towards Cranborne Chase and across the Blackmore Vale.

The cottage could be yours for a guide price of £575,000. The only downside is the steep walk to the front door!
