THE PROPERTY

11 Bridport Road is an individual detached chalet-style bungalow located in an advantageous position on the edge of a West Dorset village with lovely, far-reaching views over the surrounding countryside. Originally built as a single storey dwelling in the 1960's or 70's, the property has been subject to an extensive programme of improvement over its lifespan, such as conversion of the loft space, and has been well maintained with every modern convenience available including uPVC windows and doors, oil-fired heating and an oil-fired Aga. There is, however, scope for a new owner to carry out further improvements if desired, giving an excellent opportunity to gradually tailor it to their individual needs. With gardens and grounds amounting to just under a third of an acre, which are well screened from passers by to the front and adjoining open fields to the rear, the property enjoys a healthy sense of seclusion and therefore offers the outdoor lifestyle for which village homes are so highly desired.

Internally the accommodation is spacious and is orientated to take full advantage of the views at every opportunity. From the porch, the front door opens into a welcoming reception hall which gives access to the majority of the ground floor rooms including the large sitting/dining room with an open fireplace and adjoining conservatory, the well equipped kitchen (complete with Aga), two double bedrooms and the family bathroom. Of particular note is the principal bedroom which enjoys a large ensuite shower room and plumbing for laundry facilities. On the first floor is a very generous third bedroom along with a spacious landing area, ideal for use as a study area.

OUTSIDE

The property is approached from the public road through double wooden gates which lead onto a tarmac driveway, offering parking for several vehicles and giving access to the twin doors of the double garage, which is currently sub-divided to provide an office/hobby space and two adjoining store rooms. To the front is a well stocked, lawned garden which is well screened from passers-by and enjoys the far-reaching views to the front. Gates to both sides of the property lead to the rear garden which is also laid to lawn with flower and shrub borders and backs on to fields.

AGENTS NOTE

Vacant possession is available from the end of May 2021 due to the existing tenancy.

SITUATION

The property is located at the heart of Drimpton which rates highly amongst the many appealing villages close to Beaminster and within the West Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
