The Castle is a substantial and imposing detached period house with stone & brick elevations under a slate roof. It is estimated to date back about 130 years and until the late 1990's was operating as a public house by Palmers Brewery of Bridport and the former commercial unit as the local butcher's shop. Since 2000 the house has been subject to extensive refurbishment and alteration to bring it up to a very good standard. It offers well proportioned, versatile and extensive accommodation with a whole number of character features including stone mullion windows, high ceilings, ornate cornices and arches, period fireplaces, quarry tiled flooring, herringbone-style wood flooring and stripped pine joinery including doors, skirtings and staircase.
The property would make a fine family home and/or for home and income. The main house would be ideal for Bed & Breakfast Accommodation (carried out by the previous owners). The annexe would be suitable for long term/holiday lettings (see below) or for a dependant relative, and the former shop could be let out, converted to form part of the main house or as a further separate letting unit.
