Bedrooms: 3
Spacious detached three-bedroom house set in a large plot in a peaceful location, a short walk to Bridport town centre and shops.

The property was built in the late 1980s, tucked away from passing traffic in the orchard of 'The Gables' that lies below the house. What makes this property so unusual is its position to the end of a quiet private road, in an elevated situation taking in the sun throughout the day yet within short with walking distance of Bridport town centre. Add accommodation that is composed of a series of generously proportioned rooms and a house that sits the centre of a substantial plot and you have something very special indeed.

The accommodation is conventionally arranged around a spacious galleried hallway that stretches up to an equally light and airy landing creating space between all the principal rooms. Off the hallway the sitting room centres around a fireplace equipped with a gas coal effect fire opposite which there are sliding double doors onto a south and west facing garden. Double doors give way to a dining room that also looks over the gardens beyond which there is a good farmhouse sized kitchen. The kitchen is equipped with a comprehensive range of floor mounted units and cupboards with integrated appliances that include a ceramic hob with extractor hood over, an electric double oven, a dishwasher and a fridge. To one side of the kitchen there is space for an everyday dining table and chairs and access to the useful utility room with an outside door and cloakroom.

The principal bedroom lies on the ground floor and enjoys double doors out onto the garden as well as benefitting from an en-suite shower room. Upstairs, either side of the landing there are two bedrooms each with double wardrobes, served by a bathroom equipped with a standalone shower. There is a separate WC. The landing is equipped with a series of storage cupboards that will be of particular interest to those downsizing from larger houses. The property has gas fired central heating and UPVC double glazing.

The property is approached by a private road at the top of which is a gated entrance providing vehicular access an extensive area of driveway laid to tarmac providing parking and turning for a number of cars and access to a double garage. The garage is equipped with an electric up and over door, light and power with space behind for a workshop, subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents, if so required. The gardens are a particular feature of property with a lovely, paved terrace running along the southwest side of the house topped by a Wisteria clad pergola. This makes an ideal entertaining area during the summer months while outside the sitting room there is an extendable sun blind. The gardens are enclosed by a mixture of wall and high hedge creating a secure and private outdoor space with lawn punctuated by mature tree shrub and herbaceous planting designed to give shape, colour and form throughout the seasons. Within the garden there are various sitting areas, both sunny and shady allowing the sun or shade to be enjoyed throughout the day. Beside the house there is a useful stone out house for tool storage.
