SITUATION AND AMENTIES

This stunning home sits close to the centre of the historic town of Beaminster, Hardy's 'Emminster' in the popular West Dorset countryside. The town has a wide range of amenities with convenience and bespoke shopping of a surprising variety for a town of its size. There is a thriving local community well serviced by the churches, primary and secondary school, public houses, medical centre, dentist surgery, community leisure centre and popular cafes, restaurants and brasseries. There is a wealth of local events and activities to add to the diary and which cater to all tastes. The vibrant market town of Bridport lies approximately seven miles away and has a larger range of shops and services, including a library, art centre, cinema, a number of supermarkets, bi-weekly markets and regular farmers' and vintage markets. The beautiful Jurassic coastline is also approximately just over seven miles away at the quaint harbour of West Bay with its assortment of pubs and restaurants and the breathtaking coastal path. The historic and well regarded Lyme Regis is nearby and the whole coastline provides a variety of excellent beaches for angling enthusiasts, a spot of rock pooling, a fossil hunt or just a swim. The larger centres of Crewkerne and Dorchester are within commuting distances with mainline rail services to London and the West Country and the whole area is well supported by good road links and bus services.

DESCRIPTION

This characterful Grade II Listed property stands out in this street of artisan cottages. Offering unique tall arched windows and high ceilings it merits its prime position so close to the popular main square which is under a 5 minute walk away. The stone and slate semi - detached property was originally a Victorian Chapel, and now provides elegant and well proportioned rooms, full of natural light. On entering the property it has a lovely large entrance hall which leads through the house to a large double bedroom on the ground floor which overlooks a small private courtyard outside. Door to the courtyard outside and cupboard under the stairs. Up the stairs on the first floor there is a good sized master bedroom with lovely views across the memorial gardens and sports fields. Spacious family bathroom with bath, basin and WC. A well fitted kitchen with plenty of cupboards and nice views from the window. Leading along the landing is a very light and airy sitting room with a feature cast iron fireplace. This property is a real gem in Beaminster and is splendidly illuminated with daylight from arched windows on three sides. The property is completely versatile to anybody's needs. You could for example convert the downstairs bedroom and hall into a large kitchen/dining room creating a generous entertaining space and opening onto the outside space (STRC). Upstairs the kitchen could potentially be made into another bedroom or a dressing room for the master bedroom (STRC).

OUTSIDE

There is a single garage located under the building with a parking space in front. At the back of the property is a private walled courtyard garden with a lovely seating area for entertaining and al fresco entertaining.
