Situation And Amenities - 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 substantial modern, handsome property in the heart of Beaminster, was built in 1989 by the current owners. The flexible accommodation is on three levels. An entrance lobby with wooden flooring, with a good sized utility room to the right and a guest bedroom/office to the left. From the first floor landing you approach the dining room/ sun room area with stone flooring and a wood burner with views onto the private garden and the open plan kitchen/ breakfast room to the right. The well-appointed kitchen has beautiful bespoke granite worktops, and modern appliances throughout, with a wonderful central island which is ideal for informal entertaining. Off the dining room is an inner hallway which holds a cloakroom and guest double bedroom with en suite. Stairs lead from the first floor landing to the second floor. Leading up the stairs to the right is a dressing area/walk in closet/ occasional bedroom or can be opened up to create a bigger sitting room on this floor. The main sitting room area is on this floor with a wood burner and large patio doors open onto a large timber decking roof terrace overlooking the Beaminster sports fields and countryside beyond. There are also French doors to a reading area overlooking the sun lounge downstairs with further doors onto the roof terrace. The master bedroom is a very good size double and currently has an open plan bathroom with shower cubicle and cast iron bath with claw feet. On the second floor there are two further guest bedrooms and a family bathroom. One good sized double bedroom with its own port hole window and storage and at the other end of the landing a single bedroom with another feature port hole window with plenty of room for storage. This property is perfect as a flexible family home or for someone looking for a lock up and leave property.
