Guide price

Bedrooms: 4
A very spacious, detached house of individual character, enjoying lovely town and country views in one of Bridport's most sought-after roads within easy reach of the town centre. EPC Band E.


Hill House is full of charm and quality, occupying an elevated position with fine long-range views over the town and surrounding hills, well located in Allington Park, one of Bridport's most desirable addresses.

The house has classic elevations with a whole number of distinctive design details of the Arts and Crafts era including corner bay windows, stone mullion windows and leaded light windows. It principally faces south and takes advantage of its wonderfully sunny elevated aspect with far reaching views over the town, taking in the church, town hall and the surrounding hills down to East Cliff at West Bay.

The house was built in 1923 by a very well-known and wealthy local businessman, William Edwards, for his daughter and no expense was spared. Mr Edwards was the principal of Edward's Nets who specialised in the production of sports nets. The company is still trading and producing nets for Wimbledon. Mr Edwards was also a local MP and the mayor of Bridport.

The house still retains a whole number of original features including panelled doors, deep skirting boards, high ceilings, wood panelling, solid oak flooring virtually throughout the ground floor and the original wardrobes in the principal bedroom.

Under the current ownership since 2002, numerous improvements have been undertaken although there is scope for further upgrading with excellent potential to create a very large kitchen/dining/family room.

The accommodation comprises:

Ground floor- entrance porch, reception hall, inner hall/lobby, comfortable living room with fireplace and wood burner (a particular feature is the handsome corner bay window), sizable dining room with bay window, spacious study, utility and kitchen.

First floor- wide landing with inner landing and store cupboard with window, substantial principal bedroom, again featuring a corner bay window and having an en-suite shower room, ample second bedroom, large third bedroom with airing cupboard, fourth bedroom (originally the maid's bedroom and is now sub divided to create the en-suite shower room), good sized bathroom with pull down ladder giving access to the extensive part boarded attic (this may offer conversion potential for additional accommodation).


The house stands on a well-proportioned plot.

There is excellent potential to create off road parking with a driveway and garaging on the south-east corner off Allington Park.

The gardens are a further lovely feature, principally facing south, attractively landscaped and well stocked. Adjoining is a broad raised stone terrace down to the lawn. There are also further gardens to the western side. On the northern side there is full width timber decking.


Hill House occupies a peaceful and elevated position on the southern slopes of Allington Hill and enjoys wonderful town and country views. It lies at the far end of Allington Park, a no through road made up principally of original detached properties and one of the most sought-after roads in Bridport. The property is very conveniently located within easy walking distance of the town centre with excellent shopping, business and leisure facilities together with the very popular twice weekly market. The property is also within close walking distance of open countryside and the river meadows and highly regarded schools are not far.

The beautiful World Heritage Jurassic Coast of West Bay is only a few miles from the south with its bathing beaches, 18-hole golf course and access to the stunning cliff and coastal walks. The coastal village of Eype and the hamlet of Seatown are also within only a few miles. The larger centres of Weymouth, Dorchester and Yeovil are all within about 20/30 minutes' driving distance with mainline rail services to London. The historic coastal town of Lyme Regis is just 12 miles along the coast.
