THE PROPERTY

A charming 1920s semi-detached cottage with delightful gardens in an idyllic country setting with stunning countryside views. Number 2 East Mead Cottages is nestled in an idyllic countryside location with magnificent far reaching, south facing views enjoyed by all the principal rooms in the cottage. Situated in the village of Seaborough, the property enjoys a most peaceful position, yet is only minutes from the historic town of Beaminster and bustling market town of Crewkerne with its main line train station to London Waterloo and Exeter. Dating back to 1923, the accommodation is arranged over two floors and has rendered elevations under a tiled roof. On first entering the property there is a real sense of space and charm, with wonderfully light and well-proportioned rooms. There are many rooms in the house worth a special mention, including the delightful sitting room with its central art deco fireplace with stone hearth and wood burning stove, parquet flooring and glorious views to the open countryside to the front of the property. The truly exceptional family kitchen has been very cleverly designed to a high specification and boasts a wide range of cream wall and base units and solid wooden worktops with a double butler's sink and a comprehensive range of built in appliances including a Smeg fridge freezer, microwave, double electric oven, induction hob, coffee machine, dishwasher, washing machine and water softener. There is a generous walk in larder and alongside the kitchen is a very useful boot room and shower room with access to the garden, ideal for countryside living. The real surprise however is the addition of the fantastic garden room. Ideal for entertaining or relaxing, this flexible space would also make a fabulous dining room with double doors leading from the kitchen. French doors open out onto the patio, a lovely spot for al fresco dining or enjoying a peaceful drink in the evening sun whilst taking in the delightful garden and views. To the first floor are three double bedrooms, with lovely character features such as original wooden floorboards, doors and window sills. Two of these bedrooms enjoy views to the countryside at the front of the property, whilst the third has views to the fields behind and there is a good sized family bathroom with both a bath and separate shower. The delightful gardens extend to approx. 0.3 acres with an attractive mix of hard and soft landscaping with mature planting and many lovely spots in which to sit, relax and enjoy the tranquility. There is a large lawned area, a patio ideal for alfresco dining and attractive ornamental lily pond. The garden is a wildlife haven and over fifty species of bird have been identified by the current owners. To the far end of the garden is a well nurtured vegetable patch with greenhouse, raised beds, brassica cage, fruit cage and a chicken cage, all showing off country living at its very best. There is also a double garage with lighting, power and roof storage and an ample graveled parking area. All in all, this would make a wonderful primary or secondary home in an idyllic yet very convenient location. LOCATION The quiet village of Seaborough is a collection of farms, houses, church (St Johns) and is located in Dorset's Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty close to both the Somerset and Devon borders with nearby public footpaths to take full advantage of the surrounding countryside. Famous Seaborough Gallops are a stone's throw away. The Jurassic coastline, now a World Heritage site is a short distance away with sailing and water sport facilities. Golf courses at Chard, Lyme Regis, Bridport and the county town of Dorchester. There are local horse livery facilities nearby and the nearby village of Drimpton has a good sense of community with a village hall and public house, The Royal Oak. The attractive market towns of Beaminster and Crewkerne provide a more extensive range of facilities, including a Waitrose and Lidl supermarket and main line rail station to London Waterloo and Exeter at Crewkerne.
