A beautiful and historic property situated in the heart of this most popular village, with five bedrooms all with en suite bath/shower rooms, and a delightful and private garden. THE PROPERTY Situated in the heart of the most popular village of Broadwindsor, The Old George is a fantastic family home bursting with character, charm and history. Justifiably Grade II listed of architectural and historical importance, (it is well documented that Charles II stayed in the property in 1651). The property itself dates back to the early 1600s but was extensively refurbished in 1856 and now retains many Victorian features. It is immaculately presented and offers superb and very flexible family accommodation. On first entering the property there is a real sense of charm, space and light with a perfect juxtaposition of old and new with many period features still remaining yet many modern improvements in place. There is a large hallway with beautiful flagstone flooring, high ceilings and cornicing. Just off the hall is a most fantastic dining room with an open fireplace and views over the picturesque village square. There is also a very good-sized TV/snug room with a large inglenook fireplace with woodburning stove, a perfect room to enjoy a cold winters day. The real surprise however, especially for a property of this type and age, is the truly exceptional open plan family kitchen and dining area. This is quite simply 'as good as it gets' and forms a perfect hub of the house with a study area to one end and plenty of room for a large breakfast/dining table. There is even a breakfast bar/island and electric Aga. Just off the kitchen is a large utility room and further workshop with direct access to the delightful garden and a mezzanine storage area above. This property is currently used as a very successful Bed & Breakfast but has very much retained its character as a wonderful family home. The principal bedrooms are situated on the first floor with five beautiful bedrooms in total, all with en suite shower/bathrooms and with views over the garden or village square. The garden to the rear of the property is absolutely delightful and private with a large lawn, established flower beds, a pond and several areas which are ideal for al fresco dining. All in all, this is a truly fabulous family home in an idyllic, picturesque and very convenient village. LOCATION Broadwindsor is a popular village with a lively community feel which benefits from a village community shop, the White Lion Inn public house, church, village hall, primary school, playing field, and popular craft & design centre with restaurant. The small market town of Beaminster is under 3 miles, a vibrant and attractive market town with 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 5.8 miles, both with a further range of facilities and supermarkets, including Waitrose.
