A truly exceptional family home tucked away on the edge of the delightful market town of Beaminster with beautiful gardens and grounds amounting to approximately 1.4 acres. Tucked away on the edge of the delightful market town of Beaminster, Whatley Mill is an exceptional family home in an idyllic yet very convenient location. Justifiably Grade II Listed of architectural and historical importance, the property underwent a fastidious program of works in 2011, including an open plan kitchen/dining area, replacement electrical wiring, plumbing, heating and radiators, and is now presented to the highest possible specifications. On first entering the property there is a real sense of charm and space with a perfect juxtaposition of old and new, including very pretty exposed ceiling beams throughout, yet with all the modern comforts ideal for family living. There are a number of rooms in the house worth a special mention, including the beautiful dining hall with dual aspect and a log burner, which flows very nicely into the wonderful bespoke kitchen incorporating very attractive Corian worktops with integral sinks, oak and pine storage units (supplied and fitted by Dorset Kitchens), electric oven, gas hob (LPG) and a stable door to the kitchen courtyard, ideal for al fresco dining. The sitting room is also a beautiful room with triple aspect and French doors opening out onto the morning terrace. Like many rooms in the house, this is a perfectly proportioned room and boasts views over the garden, grounds and unspoilt countryside. Three bedrooms are situated on the first floor, including a superb master bedroom suite with large built-in oak wardrobes. There is a family bathroom and separate shower and a large airing cupboard. The real feature however is the fantastic loft with solid oak flooring; this makes an incredible entertaining space/games room/teenage den. It is fully equipped as a home office with TV, broadband and Wi-Fi connections, with an en suite shower, basin and WC. Subject to consents the loft could be converted to provide additional bedrooms. All in all, this is a truly wonderful family home in an idyllic and very convenient location. OUTSIDE The gardens and grounds are a particular feature of the property amounting to approximately 1.4 acres with extensive lawns and attractive well stocked borders. There is an exceptional two bay open garage, secure workshop/boiler room, biomass pellet store and garaging for garden machinery. Also worth mentioning is the pretty orchard and large vegetable garden (poly tunnel, raised beds and fruit cage; plus two stand pipes). There is also a rainwater harvesting tank for garden irrigation. LOCATION Beaminster is justifiably one of the most sought-after towns in the area. This vibrant, attractive market town has an excellent range of facilities including a butcher, baker, post office, chemist, hardware store, convenience stores, greengrocers, two doctors' surgeries, veterinary surgery, independent gift and tea shops, restaurants, public houses, hotel and leisure facilities. There is a wide variety of clubs and societies to choose from and Beaminster Festival, an annual event, hosts local and national artists, writers and musicians. Nestled in the countryside surrounded by hills, woodland and rolling pasture, much of it designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, it is a short walk to nearby footpaths and a vast network of routes. The Georgian town of Bridport and the coast at West Bay are within 20 minutes' drive and Crewkerne with a main line railway service to London Waterloo is approximately 7 miles, both with a further range of facilities and supermarkets, including Waitrose.
