Charming Grade II listed farmhouse close to the beach with separate converted barn for holiday use.

Location

Seatown Farmhouse is nestled in the quaint coastal village of Seatown, just half a mile from the larger village of Chideock in this glorious part of South West Dorset.

The village lies at the heart of the Jurassic Coast, a UNESCO World Heritage site with Golden Cap, in the hands of the National Trust, forming its backdrop. Seatown is made up of just a cluster of properties with the award winning Anchor Inn and the beach being the draw, both of which are a short distance from the house.

In the Summer months there is a shop serving visitors using the beach and just half a mile away is the larger village of Chideock which has a village post office and stores as well as The George Inn and The Clock public houses. About three miles away is the attractive Georgian market town of Bridport with its regular street market, an excellent range of shops, restaurants and public houses together with supermarkets including Morrisons and Waitrose.

The county town of Dorchester is about eighteen miles. Axminster, with its mailine railway station to London Waterloo, is about ten miles. Exeter airport is about one hour.

Description

Seatown Farmhouse is an immensely attractive and prominent village property with a converted barn situated in an enviable location just moments from Seatown Beach. This former farmhouse and old barn have part stone and white painted elevations under thatched roofs and some lovely traditional features including fireplaces, exposed beams, stripped floors and window seats. In recent years the house and barn have undergone significant refurbishment, with the works being carried out by renowned local builders C.G Fry. The house now provides practical, attractive modern accommodation including a fantastic south facing family kitchen, flooded with light within a quintessential period Dorset property and that coupled with its idyllic coastal location has enabled the barn, known as The Beach House to let extremely successfully for holiday use (more information available on request).

On the southern side of the house is a well stocked, gently sloping garden and lawn with raised deck (accessed from the kitchen), a stream running through, a summerhouse and views through to the sea. There are two additional parking spaces available opposite The Anchor Inn.
