Beer is a highly sought after fishing village situated on the Jurassic Coast. A crystal clear brook runs down the main street to the pebble beach with its colourful fishing boats. The quaint village centre has various eateries, galleries, shops, gardens, primary school and local attraction 'Pecorama' with its steam trains. Close by are delightful coastal and country walks, including cliff-top walks to Seaton Hole and Branscombe.
Travelling from the Harbour Road towards the main roundabout on the seafront in Seaton take the 2nd turning left into Castle Hill. Bear left into the Beer Road and continue straight on and follow the road into the village of Beer. At the hair pin bend turn right into the Causeway, then take the next left into Mare Lane and Left again into Barline. The driveway and garage to Cherry Blossoms will be found on the left hand side.
Cherry Blossoms is a delightful attached period house believed to have been designed by David Carr, a renowned local Arts and Crafts architect in the early 1900's. As such the property has some interesting features associated with the era. The house occupies a commanding plot on the western side of Beer with superb views across this historic fishing village towards the sea. The property has been owned by the present owner since 1997 who has made improvements and extended since this time. There is a large single storey detached annexe which has been let out recently through Airbnb or could equally be the perfect space for a studio or even living quarters for a dependent relative. The annexe is currently one open plan living/dining/bedroom with a separate shower and WC. Sliding doors open onto a raised deck area which is easily separated from the main garden and enjoys the same lovely views as the main house. There is a fibre glass flat roof. The main house is entered via an entrance porch with tiled floor and internal attractive original wooden door with side window featuring intricate leaded light features inset. Doors lead to all main rooms from here with understairs storage. The rear of the property has been extended to create a large open plan living room which has a feature stone wall which encompasses an open fireplace. To one end there are large sliding patio doors to the side and rear which both open to the main terrace and afford superb far reaching views over the garden to the sea. Beyond this room is a formal dining room with patio doors leading to a rear patio area and a separate door to the kitchen/breakfast room. The kitchen is fully fitted with a matching range of base and wall units. The gas central heating boiler which was installed in early 2017 is situated in a deep cupboard. There is a stable door giving access to the side and two windows. A door leads to a utility room with room for further appliances and ample shelving for larder storage as well as to a WC. Stairs rise from the entrance hall with window at half landing to the first floor. Doors lead off to all four bedrooms, two of which have en-suite facilities. The Master Bedroom has a good-sized fitted wardrobe and sliding patio doors which give access to a large balcony with glazed railings. From here and the bedroom there are stunning views from the hilltops in the distance to a view which spreads across the village, past the church and towards the sea and Jurassic coastline. There is also a family bathroom on this floor. We recommend viewing this impressive property internally to fully appreciate the space and character within.
The property is approached via a five bar gate to the large driveway with ample parking for several vehicles. To the rear of the garage is a patio seating area which fronts onto the annexe benefitting from impressive views towards Beer. Immediately in front of the main house is a large brick paved terrace with railings and a side flower border. Central steps lead down from here with further brick paved seating areas running either side. Steps run down one side of the garden to two level lawned areas. The bottom garden area has several apple trees and a further brick paved seating area and pathway running along the rear boundary. The entire garden is well screened by a mixture of mature hedging and fencing and feels private and serene. The property has a side pathway with water tap which leads around to the front of the property and a patio space (accessed from the dining room) as well as higher level garden to the front boundary with mature shrubs and flowers.
