A wonderful historic home with beautiful gardens, located at the heart of Burton Bradstock. Well presented accommodation with fabulous character features including a stunning kitchen/breakfast room, 2 reception rooms and 5 bedrooms. Grade II Listed.

THE PROPERTY

The White House is a charming character home located in a picturesque and peaceful setting at the centre of Burton Bradstock: one of West Dorset's most south-after villages. Understood to date back to 1635 with a rich and interesting history, including at one time being part of the Pitt-Rivers estate, this wonderful property has undergone a transformative programme of improvements under the current ownership with high quality contemporary fittings, such as the stunning Charles York kitchen, carefully chosen to blend seamlessly with the endless period features. Expansive yet elegant reception rooms, twinned with the gorgeous kitchen/breakfast room and five sizeable bedrooms arranged over the two upper floors, provide ample living space for a variety of lifestyles, as well as setting an appealing environment for all types of entertaining.

With many character features throughout, the property's Grade II Listed status is very much justified. Both the sitting room and the dining room are full of period charm with their exposed beams and striking fireplaces, and upstairs the two largest bedrooms are just as fascinating with a superb plank and muntin panelled wall in bedroom 2. Originally created as accommodation for a housekeeper, the second floor rooms include two double bedrooms, a bathroom and a large landing area, giving scope for use as a semi-independent apartment if desired, and there are excellent domestic facilities on the ground floor where there is a cloakroom, a useful utility/boot room and a covered passageway to the side with two store rooms which also leads to an enclosed, secluded courtyard area.

OUTSIDE

The White House enjoys glorious gardens which are stocked with an exciting array of flora. The first part of the rear garden is walled and primarily laid to lawn with charming borders, a sun terrace and a summer house, providing a delightful setting for spending time out of doors. A gate leads through to a further garden which has a superb sense of seclusion and tranquility.

To the front, the charming stone frontage is framed by an attractive yet easily maintained area of garden, surrounded by a low stone wall. Double gates lead onto a gravelled parking area for several vehicles, from which both the double garage and the useful workshop/studio outbuilding can be accessed.

SITUATION

The property is situated in the heart of Burton Bradstock; one of the area's most popular villages. Located within the West Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty this picturesque village includes the National Trust Hive Beach with its popular cafe/restaurant which forms part of the beautiful World Heritage Jurassic Coast. The village also has excellent facilities including a garage/shop, post office, public houses, church, village hall, library and primary school, and the village centre is a Conservation Area. The thriving and historic market town of Bridport is only about 3 miles to the west. Dorchester and Weymouth are within about 15 miles with main line rail services to London.
