Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 5

Substantial detached five bedroom bungalow set in just over half an acre, with wonderful views over the Marshood Vale.

The property is situated on the edge of the village of Morcombelake less than a mile from the sea, a short distance from the vibrant rope making town of Bridport and just a short step from a good local farmshop. The bungalow has been positioned to take full advantage of wonderful far-reaching views over the Marshwood Vale with the property sitting to the centre of a generous plot extending to approx. 0.59 acres. In recent years the property has undergone a programme of enlargement and refurbishment to create some unusually spacious and well-rounded family accommodation that takes full advantage of its views and can be used in any number of ways.

The property is currently arranged with the living areas to one side of the bungalow and the sleeping accommodation to the other. The living and bedroom accommodation consists of a series of generously proportioned rooms and, if required, a number of the bedrooms could be used to increase the number of living spaces. The hub of the house is of course the living room, an unusually good space that is divided into three areas with a kitchen that flows into a sitting area that in turn flows into a dining area. The kitchen is equipped with a comprehensive range of floor and wall mounted units and cupboards, with a large island unit topped by granite to its centre. The sitting area is arranged around a wood burning stove while the dining area takes in the views which stretch for miles over open countryside. Beyond the living room there is a utility room that is equipped with a butler style sink, with a cloakroom to one corner and a door through to an integral garage, which is equipped with light, power and double opening doors. The sleeping accommodation is made up of five spacious bedrooms, one of which has an ensuite shower room, with the remaining bedrooms sharing a family bathroom. The bedroom on the East side of the house has the best of all the views with a large picture window framing the views over the garden.

Access to the property is through a gated entrance to the driveway laid to a mixture of Cotswold stone and tarmac providing parking and turning for a number of vehicles and access to the garage. The gardens are a feature of this property and are particularly attractive with areas of herbaceous, shrub and tree planting punctuating the lawns that surround. Immediately to the rear of the property there is a substantial area of paved terrace that makes an ideal entertaining area during the summer months while to one side there is a useful garden shed besides which there is a fully enclosed vegetable garden complete with raised beds. To one side of the garden there is a large summer house with an area of decking with the summerhouse itself being equipped with light and power. To the very corner of the property there is a fully enclosed chicken coop and the second timber garden shed. The garden adjoins open countryside while the plot itself extends to approx 0.59 acres

On offer with no forward chain.
