AN IMPRESSIVE DETACHED 'ARTS AND CRAFTS' HOUSE OFFERING SPACIOUS CHARACTER ACCOMMODATION IN AN ELEVATED POSITION WITHIN THE POPULAR FISHING VILLAGE OF BEER

Mount View is one of the select few properties designed by architect Carr in the early 1900's in an 'Arts and Crafts' style and represent some of Beer's finest houses.

The present owners have lived at the property for some 25 years and during that time have taken great care to retain it's many inherent character features whilst providing modern amenities and improvements including extensions very sympathetic to the original architecture. It has been a much loved family home.

The house has been maintained to a high standard and all improvements have been carried out by craftsmen including the bespoke windows and joinery. It is set in attractive mature gardens which are very secluded and extend to approaching 1/3 Acre.

From the bottom of the garden is a private pathway which leads to 'Pigs Path', a public footpath to the village centre.

The sunny accommodation enjoys fine views across the valley to farmland beyond. Barline is a quiet and much sought-after residential area in an elevated location on the western edge of the village.

The charming fishing village of Beer on the Jurassic Coast offers a selection of shops for day-to-day needs, pubs and restaurants, village hall, parish church, doctor's surgery and a highly regarded primary school. It has a thriving local community and an extensive beach in a sheltered cove which provides a base for a number of working fishing boats and a sailing club. Nearby are the larger towns of Seaton and Axminster (with a main line railway station on the Exeter to Waterloo line) and excellent secondary schools including Colyton Grammar.
