25A Chantry Lane Beaminster


SITUATION: The property is situated on the north-eastern fringe of Beaminster in quiet backwater location off Chantry Lane within an active walk of the town centre and with close-by access into the open countryside. The location is quiet and tranquil with little passing traffic and no main road noise, set amongst an enclave of individual homes of various ages within a good local community.

The centre of the historic town of Beaminster lies about a mile to the south with its Co-op convenience store, good medical practice, butchers', hardware shop, bakers, range of independent boutique shops, pub and restaurants, recreational ground, museum and the central Square which hosts many events and festivities.

The larger and vibrant market town of Bridport lies some 5 miles to the south where there are many events, festivals and markets throughout the year.

The coastal village of West Bay lies another 2 miles further south with its fishing/boating harbour, beaches, range of marine and leisure pursuits and access to the Jurassic Coastline and South West Coastal Path.

THE PROPERTY comprises an individual detached house featuring stone elevations under a concrete tiled roof probably dating from the 1980's. It was obviously a luxury build in its day but is now in need of some improvement and updating to meet today's modern lifestyle requirements. It has the benefit of practical, good-sized family accommodation with mahogany-style double-glazed windows and mains gas-fired fired central heating to radiators throughout and enjoys pleasant views over its gardens and the meandering adjoining stream boundary.

The gardens extend to the front and rear and provide beautifully stocked and established gardens to the south with double-gated opening to a potential parking area. To the rear there is a good-sized wooden chalet offering work from home/workshop accommodation and hard landscaped garden.
