Live like the Mayor of Casterbridge in this magnificent Georgian house that may also have helped inspire a young Thomas Hardy to become an architect.<br />
<br />
South Lodge is in the street Hardy's fictional Mayor lived, and is described as the 'most handsome home in Dorchester' the county town that Hardy called Casterbridge in his novels.<br />
<br />
As a schoolboy Hardy would have walked past the six bed house on a daily basis on his way to and from school.<br />
<br />
And when he became a trainee architect he worked at a local company just a few doors down from South Lodge.
