  • Bedrooms: 3
Handsome and beautifully presented Grade II Listed three bedroom former farmhouse with parking, garaging and a garden within close walking distance of Bridport town centre.

The house is believed to have been built in the 18th Century with a classic double fronted configuration and warm hamstone elevations under a slate roof. The property has all the character and charm one would expect of a house of this age with open fireplaces and good ceiling heights, complimented by a sympathetic programme of refurbishment that has taken place over the last few years bringing it firmly into the 21st Century.

The accommodation is centred around a large hallway on the ground floor and equally spacious landing above off which all the principal rooms are accessed. The main daytime living space, the kitchen/dining room, focuses on a large original fireplace equipped with a wood burning stove, the seating area to one end and a fully fitted kitchen to the other. The kitchen has a range of floor and wall mounted units and cupboards with hardwood worksurfaces over, with a five ring gas hob and electric oven under with space for the dishwasher and fridge freezer. To the other side of the hallway there is a sitting room that overlooks the rear garden which also centres around a wood burning stove with book shelving either side of the fireplace into the chimney breast alcoves. Behind the sitting room there is that most useful of rooms, a utility room, that has plumbing and space for a washing machine and tumble dryer, with a further hardwood worksurface over and a butler sink. To one end there is a cloakroom and to one side is an exterior door making it ideal for a dog in the room. The flooring downstairs is practical with the kitchen, utility and hallway laid to a mixture of ceramic tile and quality laminate flooring. Upstairs there are three good bedrooms, the principle of which looks out to the south and west. The three bedrooms are served by a family bathroom with shower over the bath.

The property has gas fired central heating and has been decorated in some style throughout.

The property currently has planning permission to change the double garages into a studio/workshop space to include an apex roof and cladding – Application Number WD/D/16/002624.
