    About this property

    • Seatown Farmhouse is an immensely attractive and prominent village property with a converted barn situated in an enviable location just moments from Seatown Beach. This former farmhouse and old barn have part stone and white painted elevations under thatched roofs and some lovely traditional features including fireplaces, exposed beams, stripped floors and window seats. In recent years the house and barn have undergone significant refurbishment, with the works being carried out by renowned local builders C.G Fry. The house now provides practical, attractive modern accommodation including a fantastic south facing family kitchen, flooded with light within a quintessential period Dorset property and that coupled with its idyllic coastal location has enabled both the farmhouse and the converted barn, known as The Beach House to let extremely successfully for holiday use (more information available on request).

      Outside
      The house fronts onto the village lane (a no through road) leading to public parking for the beach, The Anchor Inn and just a few other houses. To the front of the property which looks towards the hill and sea is an attractive flint wall enclosing the front garden and an area of parking. On the southern side of the house is a well-stocked, gently sloping garden and lawn with raised deck (accessed from the kitchen), a stream running through, a summerhouse and views through to the sea. A fence separates The Beach House garden which has a fine old stone wall and level lawn with a path leading to a deck with glass pod providing seating.
