Guide price

Bedrooms: 5
A very attractive charming and spacious individual detached character house with annexe, set in large gardens and well located on the western side of the sought after town of Beaminster.


Barrowdene House is a very attractive, spacious and highly individual detached character house with annexe, set in lovely large and well stocked gardens in the historic town of Beaminster and close to open countryside. It is believed to have been built in circa 1939 with stone and upper timber elevations, featuring attractive stone mullion and leaded light windows. The property has been subject to a whole number of improvements over the years and substantial enlargement with a two-storey extension to provide a self-contained annexe/additional accommodation.

The accommodation is very spacious and versatile either as two homes (ie the annexe is ideal for a dependent relative, long term letting or holiday letting/Airbnb etc.). Alternatively, it is one very large, spacious family home. Under the current ownership since 2016, a whole number of improvements have been carried out including partial window replacement, upgrading of the kitchen and shower room, new gas central heating boiler and extensive redecoration.

The net floor area extends to a very generous 2,300 sqft and there are lovely views to the front over Beaminster to the church and surrounding countryside.
