Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 4
An exceptional historic home with endless character features, located in the heart of the popular village of Broadwindsor. 4 generous bedrooms, sitting room, dining hall and kitchen/breakfast room. Charming front garden and walled rear courtyard. Parking and single garage. Grade II Listed.


Of the many period properties within Broadwindsor's charming square, The Bricks must be among the most beautifully preserved and best situated, being in a somewhat secluded position elevated above the village road and well screened from passers-by. With stunning original features including a stone spiral staircase, a plank-and-muntin wall, impressive fireplaces and exposed beams in many rooms, the property is justifiably Grade II Listed and is believed to date back to 1521. The superb family home seen today offers spacious, comfortable accommodation and is presented in excellent order throughout with much to offer a broad variety of lifestyles as a result of a programme of significant yet sympathetic improvements carried out by the current owners.

The studded front door opens into the dining hall which, with the plank-and-muntin wall, flagstone floors and an inglenook feature fireplace very much in evidence, gives a lasting first impression of the character features. This lies open to the sitting room where another inglenook fireplace, which is occupied by a modern yet complementary wood burner, and several window seats give a great sense of comfort and tranquillity. The kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with traditional cottage-style units, a Nobel range cooker, integrated electric oven and electric 2 ring hob alongside plenty of room for a family breakfast table.

From the sitting room, the primary staircase rises to the first floor landing which gives access to four generous bedrooms, the family bathroom and a separate cloakroom. The principal bedroom is of particular note, spanning the full depth of the house with excellent fitted wardrobes, whilst two of the further bedrooms also enjoy built-in wardrobes and bedroom 4 is currently used to great effect as a study, perfect for working from home. Having been refurbished under the current ownership, the family bathroom is very well appointed and benefits from electric underfloor heating.


The Bricks is approached from the village lane via steps leading up to the front garden which enjoys a sunny aspect and is well screened by an established hedge, ensuring a sense of seclusion and privacy. Primarily laid to lawn with a paved terrace abutting the house, well-stocked flower and shrub borders and a shed, this is a wonderful setting for spending time out of doors. Furthermore there is a paved and walled courtyard to the rear which is arranged in two terraces and is designed for easy maintenance.

Off road parking for two cars is available to the front, and the property also benefits from a single garage and additional parking space located through an archway across the road.


The Bricks is pleasantly located close to the centre of Broadwindsor village which rates highly amongst the many appealing villages close to Beaminster and within the West Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Broadwindsor has much to offer residents of all ages with an active and friendly community and amenities including a well-renowned Craft Centre, village shop, pub, church, village hall and primary school as well as a broad range of clubs and societies to suit many interests. Charming Beaminster, with its characterful square and comprehensive range of independent shops, restaurants and pubs, is just 2 miles' drive away, and the popular market town of Bridport is also easily accessible at 7 miles distant.
