Bedrooms: 4
A charming Grade II listed Georgian town house with generous accommodation, an enclosed rear garden and off street parking.

This five bedroom house is positioned at end of one of the most popular streets in the town and further benefits from that most precious of Bridport town centre commodities - off-street


Believed to have been built in the late 1700s, the property boasts many features one would expect of a house of this period with an ornate fanlight, high ceilings, large sash windows, cast iron feature fireplaces and flagstone flooring to the ground floor,to name but a few. With the accommodation arranged over four floors, the property has been a comfortable family home for the past 15 years, during which time it has been sympathetically improved without disturbing any of the character features.

On the ground floor you will find the main living accommodation with the sitting room to the front of the house, a cosy room with a grey carpet, sash window with wooden shutters and wood burning stove. Toward the back of the property is the sizable dining room also benefiting from a wood burning stove, under stairs cupboard and a large original Georgian built in cupboard. A door leads out to the garden.

This is a versatile room which could be arranged in a number of ways, large enough to accommodate an everyday dining table and chairs as well as additional furniture. The dining room flows through an open doorway into the kitchen with its variety of floor and wall mounted units with white gloss cupboards creating a lovely bright space. A bespoke concrete worktop contrasts with the gloss units tying together the period features

with the modern improvements that have been made. There is a butler sink with mixer tap, integrated dishwasher, space for an Americans style fridge/freezer and a SMEG dual fuel ranger cooker with extractor hood above. A set of double doors open onto the garden patio. Off the kitchen is a utility room with a W/C, wash hand basin and some additional worktop with space for an under counter washing machine and tumble dryer.

On the first floor are two of the five bedrooms, one generous double room and one comfortable single. The double bedroom benefits from a double aspect, fitted cupboards and an ornate cast iron fireplace. In addition on the first floor is the recently updated bathroom with grey Karndean floor, corner shower unit, bath, counter top floating basin and heated towel rail.

Off the landing is a separate W/C. Two further bedrooms are found on the second floor, both large double rooms with fitted cupboards and on the third floor is the final bedroom, taking up the entirety of the loft space with eaves storage and exposed beams.

Further improvements made to the property include a new gas fired boiler and fuse box.

To the front of the property is a pretty garden enclosed by a stone wall and decorative metal gate. A path leads to the front door and there is an area laid to shingle with ample room for potted plants and a garden bench. The walled rear garden is totally enclosed with a pedestrian gate providing side access. A patio immediately abuts the house which can be accessed from both the dining room and kitchen. There is a pergola and a further area of circular patio with lawn and flower borders. At the end of the garden is substantial studio/garden room.

The property has a private parking space which is accessed via the left hand side of the terrace.
