Sweet Briar Farm is a fine 18th century farmhouse nestled between the rolling hills on the outskirts of the village of Uploders, three miles east of Bridport and four miles inland from the World Heritage Jurassic Coastline. The location is rural yet easily accessible to the main route that leads east to Bournemouth and Hampshire and west to Devon and Cornwall. Together with the neighbouring village, Loders, there are two public houses, a church, primary school and village hall. Bridport is a popular market town that prides itself in being able to offer a number of butchers, bakers and independent shops and a number of excellent eateries. It is a desirable location that attracts new residents and tourists from afar.

The extensive six bedroom property is accessed off the road that leads through the village and is approached through wooden gates and up a gravel drive. The attractive plot also offers a double garage, Alitex greenhouse and a separate converted stable block that is advertised as a holiday home that rents for £1015 per week in high season. This is an ideal side business or perfect for visiting guests.

The accommodation within the principal house has been tastefully modernised and presented to a high standard whilst being sympathetic to the origins of the building. It includes an entrance vestibule which leads to an impressive open plan, multi-purpose living space which forms the social epicentre of this home with stunning fireplace and inset wood burning stove. The wooden floor runs the length of the room and is complimented by the wooden beams running parallel above. Double doors lead out into the south west facing walled courtyard and at the other end of the room to the garden at the side of the house. There is access to the study and to the office from this room and steps lead down into the attractive dining room where a feature fire place and log burner draw your eye. The stunning farm house kitchen is positioned off of the dining room, it offers ample storage, a double Aga, separate electric hob and double oven and space for a large family dining table. Doors lead to a well-equipped utility room, bathroom and an additional room which currently serves as a useful ground floor bedroom.

The striking first floor mezzanine acts as a walkway between the two wings of the house and overlooks the living space below. The stunning master suite is on one side of the house offering ample built in storage and two sets of double doors onto Juliette balconies. The en-suite for the master bedroom has a double shower, with separate freestanding bath. The guest wing at the opposite end of the house provides four double bedrooms each with an en-suite.

The main property together with the holiday cottage and a separate detached oak framed garage and store, sits in grounds of circa 3.25 acres. The interesting and mature gardens wrap around the property on all sides and offer a mix of paved courtyard areas and areas of grass with mature beds. 

Within the ground is an Alitex ‘National Trust’ greenhouse, a summer house and two fish ponds. The small formal paddock has access from the village road and leads to the large paddock (with water trough) on the steeper ground.
