Bedrooms: 3
An attractive 1930s semi-detached house with a large south facing rear garden occupying a private, sought after location within easy reach of Bridport town centre.

THE PROPERTY

Briarway is a very attractive, character, older style semi-detached house featuring a south facing mature garden and far reaching views in a private and tucked away sought after residential area. It is understood to have been built in the 1930s having classic pebbledash colour washed elevations under a slate roof and subject to a rear single storey extension. It has been under the current ownership for the past 40 years.

The accommodation is good sized and enjoys a pleasant aspect both to the front and rear, overlooking the town and the surrounding countryside, down to West Bay (with a very small sea glimpse) and also taking in the well known view points of Allington Hill and Eype Down. Character features typical of its age and type include front bay windows, high ceilings, panelled doors and picture rails. The property offers potential for further enlargement, possibly to the side or a loft conversion, subject to the usual planning consents.

Although well presented and having gas fired central heating and replacement UPVC sealed unit windows, the house would now benefit from some general updating.

Briefly the accommodation extends to:

Ground floor- entrance porch, reception hall, cloakroom, living room with fireplace and sliding pocket double doors to the dining room with a fireplace incorporating a gas back boiler, sun lounge/garden room, kitchen, side porch and timber utility/store.

First floor- landing with access to attic which is part boarded, double sized main bedroom with shower cubicle and wash basin, double sized second bedroom, good sized single third bedroom and a fully tiled bathroom.

OUTSIDE

The house is set back and elevated off Lansdowne Road with pedestrian access only. On street parking is available in Lansdowne Road.

The house stands on a good sized, mature plot with generous front and rear gardens which are well established. The front garden features an ornamental pond with waterfall, areas of lawn and a variety of trees and shrubs. The rear garden enjoys a sunny south facing aspect with views over the town to the distant hills and is principally down to lawn interspersed with a whole number of shrubs, together with a paved terrace, two sheds and a greenhouse.

SITUATION

The house enjoys a private and tucked away location within a sought after, well established area close to Bothenhampton village and within easy reach of the town centre and amenities. Bothenhampton offers an arts and crafts church, a village hall and playground and there are many nearby footpaths offering access to lovely open countryside. Bridport town centre has an exciting range of shopping, leisure and cultural experiences to suit all tastes including a twice weekly street market, arts centre and leisure centre with swimming pool. There are schools for children of all ages within the town and further afield the county town of Dorchester and the famous historic resort of Lyme Regis are within easy reach. The area as a whole is one of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and the stunning Jurassic Coast is just a few miles away at West Bay.
