A stunning and well appointed mill conversion in a peaceful and private setting overlooking fields in the highly sought after coastal village of Burton Bradstock. EPC Band C.


5 The Flax Mill is a highly unique and well appointed mill conversion attractively situated overlooking fields in the highly sought after coastal village of Burton Bradstock. The Flax Mill is a select development undertaken by the well known award winning local builders CG Fry & Son Ltd in 2008/2009. It comprises the conversion of a historic former flax mill and just four new quality detached houses, all of distinct character. The Flax Mill dates back some 200/300 years, it is not Listed and has walls of attractive solid stone under slate roofs. It is an idyllic riverside setting yet very conveniently close to all amenities. The village centre is within only a few minutes' walk with Hive Beach only 10 minutes' walk whilst there is also direct access onto direct countryside.

The property principally faces south therefore enjoying a delightful sunny aspect with lovely views over the River Bride and the surrounding fields beyond. Originally with single storey accommodation, a superb first floor conversion was undertaken about 8 years ago to provide excellent additional accommodation.

The impressive high specification includes gas fired central heating, timber sealed unit windows, oak floor to reception hall, living room with integrated wood burner, well equipped kitchen with granite worktops, AEG electric oven and Neff gas hob plus AEG cooker hood, integrated fridge, freezer, dishwasher and washing machine, attractive quality bathroom and shower room fittings, extensive built in wardrobes and PV panels providing excellent revenue (installed in about 2011).

The accommodation is very well proportioned and has stunning character style features including vaulted and beamed ceilings, porthole window to the kitchen/dining room, cottage doors and deep window sills.

The accommodation extends to:

Ground floor- reception hall with solid oak and glass sided stairs to the first floor, living room with high vaulted beamed ceiling, integrated woodburner and bespoke oak bookshelves, well equipped kitchen/dining room again with a high vaulted beamed ceiling, principle bedroom with en-suite shower room featuring sky tube, two further double bedrooms, bathroom.

First floor large landing/reception area, 4th bedroom/study, bathroom.


There is a double garage within the Flax Mill with remote control door, power, light and storage cupboards with part boarded rafters over.

The front garden, with riparian river rights, enjoys the lovely open aspect and is predominantly laid down to lawn fronting onto the River Bride.

There is a lovely side walled courtyard garden which is landscaped featuring a paved terrace, lawn, well stocked with shrub beds and a rear pedestrian gate giving access to the double garage. A particular feature is a mature olive tree.


The Flax Mill enjoys a private and peaceful setting on the southern edge of Burton Bradstock adjoining the River Bride and overlooking fields. Burton Bradstock is considered to be one of the most sought after and picturesque villages in West Dorset and is designated a Conservation Area. The centre consists mainly of period stone properties of the type for which the area is well known. There are excellent amenities including a post office/shop, garage/convenience shop, public houses, church, library, village hall, popular primary school and regular bus service. There is also a popular National Trust beach, with a renowned café, which forms part of the beautiful World Heritage Coastline.
