THE PROPERTY

Hopyard is a spacious, individual detached bungalow which occupies a set-back position within the popular village of Chideock and benefits from a generous plot with established, landscaped gardens. Owing to its location within the village, the property enjoys a stunning rural outlook across the surrounding countryside to the hills beyond, taking in the historic ramparts of the ruined 14th century Chideock Castle, where the local landmark known as The Martyrs' Cross now stands.

The property is believed to date back to the 1970s and, having been under the same ownership for some 37 years, has been sympathetically extended and is presented in excellent order throughout. Scope remains, however, for a new owner to further improve and personalise elements of the property, including great potential for further extending or conversion of the garage (STPP) providing an exciting opportunity to create a single-storey home which is ideally tailored to their individual style.

Internally the accommodation is very well proportioned and offers a great degree of flexibility. The living rooms are primarily arranged to the rear of the property and therefore take full advantage of the charming outlook and views. This is particularly the case in the sitting room which benefits from French windows leading directly to the rear garden and a stone feature fireplace with an electric fire. The kitchen/breakfast room also enjoys the same aspect and is well appointed with fitted units providing excellent storage and integrated appliances including electric oven and hob, slimline dishwasher and fridge/freezer. Adjacent to the kitchen is the utility room which benefits from fitted units and plumbing for laundry facilities.

Each of the three bedrooms is well proportioned with built-in wardrobes. Bedroom 1 is of particular note due to its expansive size, which suggests potential to create ensuite facilities if desired, whilst bedroom 3, which is a large single, is where the versatility of the property is particularly prevalent; this room could easily be utilised as an additional reception room or study, to name but a few potential uses. The property further benefits from two shower rooms, both equipped with modern suites comprising shower cubicle, WC and wash hand basin, and the integral double garage offers potential for conversion to additional accommodation, subject to any necessary consents.

OUTSIDE

The property enjoys one of the largest plots of bungalows in the locality with delightful, landscaped gardens, which are well stocked with an exciting array of established flora, wrapping around the property on three sides. To the front, the property is set back and well screened from the public road by the front garden which is primarily laid to lawn bordered by a hedge. There is also a driveway to the front offering excellent parking space for a number of vehicles as well as providing access to the double garage.

The gardens extend around the side of the property where there is a further smooth lawn, interspersed with flower and shrub borders, and a charming circular paved sun terrace. To the rear, a further sun terrace runs the full length of the property, providing the optimum place to overlook the lovely adjoining borders and enjoy the stunning views.

SITUATION

The property is located in an enviable position tucked away from the main road in the highly regarded village of Chideock. This most charming village is close to the beaches and sea at Seatown with facilities including two pubs, a shop/post office, churches and village hall. The area is designated as one of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is close to National Trust land with spectacular cliff and coastal walks along the World Heritage Site Jurassic Coast. Plenty of year-round arts, crafts and cultural events are held in Lyme Regis and Bridport, and regular bus services operate from the village to both towns, with a bus stop just a short walk from the property.
