Bedrooms: 4
Handsome Grade ll Listed four bedroom period townhouse in excellent order, to the centre of Bridport

The property is believed to have been built in 1807, was reconfigured in the 1940s and extended in the 1970s, to create a spacious family sized home with huge character and flexible accommodation that can be used in any number of ways. The property has in recent years undergone a rolling programme of refurbishment and redecoration and the result is a beautifully presented period property ready to move into. In addition, the configuration of the property and its proximity to the beach have enabled the current owners to run the top floor as a successful AirBNB, generating a good income.

The property is arranged with the principal living room to the front and side of the property, with two seating areas and a study area with one of the seating areas having a focal point of a woodburning stove. This in turn flows through to the dining/garden room which is a particularly attractive South facing space that looks onto the courtyard garden behind and takes in the sun for much of the day, with a substantial roof light further enhancing the feeling of light and space. Off the study area a door leads through to a well-equipped kitchen, with a comprehensive range of floor mounted units and cupboards and a breakfast bar with a built-in double electric oven, a 4 ring induction hob and space for a fridge and a dishwasher. Beyond the kitchen there is a useful utility room with a cloakroom off - this currently being used as a workshop. On the first floor there are three good bedrooms, two of which are spacious doubles served by a shower room while on the second floor the accommodation is for the most part open plan to allow for the Airbnb with a sleeping area one end, a sitting area to the other beyond which there is a second shower room. The property is in excellent decorative order throughout and has gas fired central heating, with a 4 year old Vaillant boiler.

To rear of the property there is a private fully enclosed courtyard garden facing due South taking the sun for much of the day, laid to gravel for ease of maintenance with mature shrub planting to the sides. To the rear of the garden there is a pedestrian access, communal to the terrace, with a useful storage shed across the pathway that was originally the cottage privy. From the property a private path leads directly to the Asker river and the meadows. At the end of the footpath there is a lovely informal riverside communal garden, frequented by the properties that have access to the footpath Askers Meadow allows access to the network of paths that lead all over Bridport and down to the beach at West Bay, a pleasant 35 minute walk.
