A fantastic family home situated in the heart of this picturesque village with a delightful garden, outside office/barn, pony paddock and stables. Believed to date back to the mid-17th century, Medway House is situated in the heart of the most picturesque village of Askerswell. Although the property was once listed this is no longer the case so therefore offers greater flexibility for a purchaser to create their perfect family home. Constructed of local Askerswell stone under a very pretty thatched roof, first glimpses of Medway House are most striking. On first entering the property there is a real sense of charm and space with many rooms in the house worth a special mention. The family kitchen for example is a fantastic room with plenty of room for a breakfast/dining table and incorporating a two oven Aga (blue) and a number of wall and base units. The hall and kitchen benefit from very attractive oak flooring. Alongside the kitchen is a large utility room/cloakroom (please see floorplan). The dining room is a magnificent room with wooden panelling and a most attractive stone fireplace. This leads through to the sitting room with windows to either side and a large open fireplace and exposed wooden beams. The house, which undertook a fastidious program of works by the present owners, is a perfect juxtaposition of old and new, with many modern features in place yet with many period features still remaining such as window seats, window shutters and exposed wooden beams. The summer/garden room was cleverly added by the present owners and is used all year round with French doors opening out to the paved terrace and pretty pergola, ideal for al fresco dining. Just to the side of the stairs leading up to the summer room is a large study/office and unlike many properties in this part of the world the property benefits from fibre broadband to the home and very quick internet access. The principal bedrooms are situated on the first floor and ideally laid out for family living. There are four bedrooms in total including a superb master bedroom and en suite shower room. The two spare bedrooms are a very good size, as is the family bathroom. To the rear of the property is the most delightful south facing garden with a pony paddock beyond. This includes a paved terrace and pergola and lawned area, car port, wooden stable block with two loose boxes and a tack room and plenty of parking. Also worth a special mention is the barn which would be ideal for an outside office or games room. All in all, this would make the most fantastic family home in this very popular and picturesque village close to the Jurassic coast.
