THE PROPERTY

Tir-A-Mor is an individual detached bungalow enjoying a secluded, tucked away position within the popular and accessible village of Morcombelake. With its Welsh name translating as Land and Sea , this must be one of the most aptly named properties in the area, owing to its glorious views across both the National Trust-owned Golden Cap estate and the sea, whilst the secluded south-facing gardens are a haven for wildlife. Under the current ownership for the past 14 years, the grounds have been organically managed and, alongside the summerhouse which was built using sustainable materials, offer a highly desirable outdoor lifestyle with eco-friendly credentials. There remains enormous scope for further improvement or enlargement of the bungalow itself, giving a new owner the opportunity to create a home ideally suited to their individual needs as well as a chance to further lower the environmental impact of the property, for example by installing solar panels (subject to any necessary consents).

Inside, the accommodation is well proportioned and includes a spacious sitting room, from which large picture windows and sliding glass doors allow the views to be enjoyed to their fullest advantage, a kitchen/dining room with traditional, cottage-style units, two double bedrooms, a bathroom with separate shower cubicle and a garden room to the front. The summerhouse, which is well insulated with sheep's wool and benefits from power and light, is a useful additional space perfect for those working from home or expecting regular guests.

OUTSIDE

The gardens at Tir A Mor are an undoubted feature. Surrounding the bungalow, and measuring more than a third of an acre, the gardens offer great seclusion which, coupled with the south facing aspect and exquisite views, make spending time out of doors a joy. The sliding glass doors from the sitting room open onto a sun deck, stretching nearly the full width of the property and overlooking the rest of the rear garden which is arranged as shallow-tiered lawns with established plants as well as an area suitable for use as a produced garden, complete with poly tunnel and fruit trees. The garden is a haven for a variety of plants and wildlife, giving a sense of getting closer to nature, including the front lawn which is frequently a riot of wild flowers and borders the driveway, which provides off road parking.

SITUATION

Sun Lane is a small. tucked away road in the sought-after village of Morcombelake. Within the village there are a range of amenities including a village hall, shop/post office, tea rooms, farm shop, and church, and the pub in Whitchurch Canonicorum is a short drive away. A key asset to the village is the stunning countryside with fabulous walks from the doorstep including the National Trust owned Golden Cap estate on the Jurassic Coast, the South West Coast Path, and the area is justifiably designated one of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site at Charmouth, just 1.5 miles away, and Bridport and Lyme Regis, both less than 5 miles, are all within easy reach.
