Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A charming Grade II Listed former water mill with detached holiday let, set away from passing traffic, nestled in gardens and grounds of approximately 4.57 acres (1.85 ha).

As suggested from its title, this farm was originally a water mill, believed to have been owned by the local "Moores" family who are renowned for their biscuit production. This striking stone house is Grade II Listed being of Architectural and Historic Importance incorporating such features as an inglenook fireplace and exposed timbers, alongside modern day conveniences such as an oil fired central heating system. There is a welcome income to be generated from the 2 bedroom holiday let known as "Old Bakehouse" which enjoys its own garden area and water frontage to the River Char. A studio has also been created within the attic rooms of the house accessed by its own external steps. This would make an ideal area for a dependant relative, subject of course to any necessary consents. The total site extends to approximately 4.57 acres (1.85 ha), incorporating various paddocks which are dissected by the River Char, providing a picturesque setting alongside the luxury of considerable privacy and seclusion. Within the grounds are various outbuildings but of particular note is the modern stable block which lends itself ideally to the equine enthusiast.

N.B. Such Dorset gems rarely come to the market and this wonderful package with its own photovoltaic panels sets the scene for any potential purchaser to enjoy "the good life".

The site and situ is a particular feature being located at the end of a no through road whilst forming part of the popular Marshwood Vale.

The hamlet of Broadoak has a variety of period properties and is situated approximately 4 miles to the north-west of Bridport and close to the delightful Marshwood Vale, all situated in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Bridport has a twice weekly market as well as regular farmers' markets and offers a range of quirky and artisan local shops as well as a vintage quarter. The town's amenities include restaurants and hotels, a cinema and leisure centre, supermarkets, a museum, a health centre and a number of excellent primary schools and secondary schooling. Bridport has good access to the famous Jurassic Coast from the pretty harbour of West Bay with its assortment of pubs and restaurants and picturesque coastal path.
