Property description

High Croft is a former residential care home enjoying an idyllic location on the outer edge of this favoured village as well as truly stunning, far reaching countryside views. In need of renovation and refurbishment, High Croft offers an exciting opportunity for a project in the countryside.

The property is approached via double gates and a tree lined driveway leading to a large car parking area. There are three detached outbuildings, the largest being a former classroom, the second comprising two small classrooms and a store, and the third comprising a garage and four stores. From the main car park a further driveway leads to another car park with timber car port. From here there is access to a large garden area, laid to lawn, with a variety of interspersed shrubs and mature
trees. There is also an area of sloping woodland. High Croft also enjoys its own block of adjoining
rolling pastureland, which has previously been used for grazing and which is suitable for agricultural purposes.

Situated in the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (aonb), the picturesque village of Broadwindsor is surrounded by rolling countryside. The active community enjoys a good range of amenities including a local pub (The White Lion), village hall, church, primary school, community shop with a visiting Post Office, and a village craft centre which includes a tea room/restaurant.

The nearby town of Beaminster offers a wider range of facilities and amenities including a variety of shops, churches, Post Office, library, two schools, health centres, professional services, a variety of social and sports clubs, and an annual music festival.
