Broadenham Cottage is an endearing period cottage which is advantageously positioned on the edge of a popular village just 2 miles from Bridport, yet enjoying a glorious country outlook to the rear. With it's whitewashed elevations and thatched roof (recently re-thatched), the appearance of the property is reminiscent of a chocolate box but is not listed. Having been a much-loved home under the current ownership, which has spanned some 30 years, the property has been updated over the years including the installation of replacement uPVC double glazed windows and an LPG central heating system, as well as recent internal and external redecoration, however scope remains for a new owner to carry out further improvements and personalisations to tailor the property to their individual style.

Internally, the accommodation is arranged in a simple, classical layout and is well proportioned throughout. The stable front door opens into a welcoming entrance hall with a large coat and shoe cupboard, from which doors lead into the two reception rooms, including a dual-aspect sitting room with double glass doors to the garden and the charming dining room which features a stone fireplace. From the dining room a door opens into the kitchen which is fitted with traditional farmhouse-style wooden units. There is also a ground floor bathroom, and from the entrance hall stairs rise to the first floor landing which gives access to 3 spacious bedrooms, the largest of which benefits from built-in wardrobes.


Broadenham Cottage enjoys generous and established gardens to the rear and side which are primarily laid to lawn with well stocked flower and shrub borders. The double doors from the sitting room open onto a paved sun terrace from which steps lead up to an extensive lawn with a mature apple tree. From here, the wonderful countryside outlook across neighbouring fields to the stunning Marshwood Vale beyond can be enjoyed to its fullest advantage. Also within the garden, there is a timber shed and a greenhouse, and to the side of the house at street level is an off road parking area.


There is excellent potential to create a new parking area within the garden, accessed from the side/rear lane.
