  • Bedrooms: 4
If you are looking for character, space, a central position and parking you have certainly found it here. The property is believed to date back to the mid 18th century and has all the features one would expect of a house of this period with high ceilings, large sash casement windows with original working shutters and a good staircase to name but a few. Over the last 7 years, the property has undergone a programme of refurbishment and renewal, bringing it firmly into the 21st century. All the rooms are beautifully proportioned in a way that is seldom found in modern houses. And lastly the house lies within a two minute walk of Bridport town hall and of all the town's amenities and has that most precious of Bridport town centre commodities, off-street parking.

On the ground floor, the hub of the house is undoubtedly the kitchen/dining/living room that has two original rooms opened up into one another, with a generous sitting area to one end with a fireplace, and to the other end a large stylish kitchen. The kitchen has a large island unit to its centre with an extensive range of floor and wall mounted units and cupboards and a gas-fired Aga. The kitchen and sitting area, and the rear hall are all laid to attractive yet practical travertine flooring, giving continuity to the spaces. To the other side of the house there is a drawing room which has also been organised with an archway between the original front and rear rooms, making it a good entertaining space. There is also a sitting area to one end which is centred around a fireplace and a more informal end to the other, with double doors out onto the garden. In addition, downstairs there is a study/library room with cupboards and book shelving built into the chimney breast alcoves, and a cloakroom.

Upstairs, both the principal and second bedrooms have ensuite shower rooms. In addition, there are two further bedrooms served by a family bathroom equipped in some style with a rolltop bath, a console basin, and a corner shower unit. The property is in very good decorative order throughout, has some secondary glazing and has gas fired central heating.

To the rear of the property there is an attractive south and west facing courtyard garden laid to stone paving with areas of herbaceous and shrub planting to the edges, designed to give shape colour and form throughout the seasons. This makes an ideal space for alfresco dining, enjoying sun all afternoon during the summer months. Beyond the garden a doorway leads through to that most precious of Bridport town centre commodities, dedicated off-street parking for two cars.
