Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 6
A unique property comprising a 3 bedroom picture-postcard cottage and a 3 bedroom barn conversion, located in the heart of a highly desirable coastal village. West-facing central courtyard, garage, workshop/studio and parking. Grade II Listed


This highly desirable, individual property comprises a pair of charming cottages located in a peaceful position close to the centre of Burton Bradstock. Converted from barns once forming part of Shadrach Farm, both parts of the property enjoy a wealth of period features throughout with a classic picture-postcard external appearance, particularly Shadrach Farm Cottage which has a thatched roof above its solid stone walls, befitting its Grade II Listed status. Under the current ownership, which has lasted more than two decades, the property as a whole has been greatly improved yet with sympathy to its historic origins, and is presented in excellent order throughout both the cottage and the barn. The result is a comfortable, convenient and characterful home which, due its very nature, offers spacious and highly versatile accommodation suitable for a broad variety of lifestyles including extended families, those expecting regular guests or anyone seeking a property ideally set up to provide an income stream as well as a home.


Despite having been converted from a barn, Shadrach Farm Cottage has all the appeal of a romantic English cottage with features including an impressive natural stone fireplace with a gas woodburner-effect stove and stripped pine internal doors. There are two spacious reception rooms which comprise a charming sitting room (where the fireplace can be found) and a superb dining room which hints at the property's agricultural origins: the large window to the front aspect, vaulted, wood-panelled ceiling and minstrels' gallery have all been adapted from the attributes of the former hay store and loft. Also on the ground floor is the kitchen, which has been fitted with Shaker-style units beneath solid oak worktops, and a useful utility room/cloakroom. Upstairs, three well proportioned bedrooms, a bathroom and a shower room are arranged around the landing, part of which forms the minstrels' gallery.


Located across the central courtyard from Shadrach Farm Cottage, the barn also provides generous accommodation including three bedrooms (principal ensuite), family bathroom, kitchen/dining room and a large sitting room. The conversion of this part of the property is believed to have been carried out around 30 years ago and was clearly completed to a very high standard; the barn exhibits many character-style features including a farmhouse-style Dorset kitchen, a multi-fuel stove and Norwegian wood flooring throughout the ground floor with panelling in the sitting room. Being completely self-contained and set slightly apart from the cottage, the barn is perfect for many uses including to realise an income via holiday or long-term letting, as lodgings for guests or even as a large home office, to list but a few of the possibilities.


The two parts of the property are arranged around a central west-facing courtyard which provides a delightful setting for spending time out of doors. There is a paved terrace adjoining the barn, whilst the cottage further benefits from an area of garden to the front which is raised above the lane and is also paved. Accessed from the courtyard is a sizeable workshop/studio which is a useful asset to the property, and there is also a detached garage with an electric door, an adjoining carport (or covered terrace) and an allocated parking space adjacent to the front corner of the property.


The side access drive is jointly owned by the 7 properties that use it.


The property is situated in the heart of Burton Bradstock; one of the area's most popular and picturesque villages. Located within the West Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty the village includes the National Trust Hive Beach with its popular cafe/restaurant which forms part of the beautiful World Heritage Jurassic Coast and is just a short walk from the property. The village also has excellent facilities including a garage/shop, post office, public houses, church, village hall, library and primary school, and the village centre is a Conservation Area.
