THE PROPERTY

Foundry House is a very attractive, substantial and highly individual attached house with extensive south facing gardens and grounds in a tucked away setting within Bridport town centre, close to all amenities. The exact age is unknown but it is estimated to date back 200 years or so and was built as a private house for the adjoining former Foundry Water Mill. Under the current ownership since 1990, it was subject to extensive enlargement, alteration and refurbishment undertaken by professional local and well respected contractors. The house is of colour washed elevations under a slate roof and a particular dominating feature is the wonderful, full width south facing balcony. Modern amenities include gas fired central heating with a recently replaced boiler and replacement UPVC sealed unit windows.

The accommodation is both extensive and versatile, being arranged over three floors and facing principally south, enjoying views over the town to the church and the surrounding countryside. Character style features include: wood panelling ceiling to the reception hall and an ornate wood panelled ceiling to the living room together with a large stone and beamed fireplace.

Briefly the accommodation extends to:

Ground floor- entrance hall, living room, dining room, study/garden room, kitchen/breakfast room with solid limed oak fronted units, utility, rear porch, cloakroom.

First floor- landing, principal bedroom with access to the balcony enjoying the town views, second bedroom with en-suite shower room featuring a walk in shower, bathroom.

Second floor- landing with large under eaves storage cupboard, two further double bedrooms and bathroom.

Foundry House is a very special, one off home and viewing is strongly recommended.

OUTSIDE

In all, the main plot extends to a very generous 0.4 acre which adjoins the River Brit on the eastern boundary.

The house is approached through an ornate gate onto a tarmac driveway and there is an extra large detached garage.

The extensive garden and grounds are a big feature of Foundry House, being south facing, private, landscaped and very well stocked.

There is an adjoining paved terrace to the southern and eastern side, ornate pond with waterfall and large expansive lawns together with a whole variety of flower and shrub beds. There is also a former lamp post. To the side is a further garden area featuring a palm tree and a substantial detached greenhouse building with productive orange and lemon trees, along with a freestanding greenhouse. To the east side is a very large orchard with crab apple, walnut and hazel trees.

On the opposite side of the lane, there is an additional area of land which extends to about 0.07 acres and adjoins the River Simene.

The hand cut stone water trough in the driveway will remain.
