Glenhaven is a charming detached bungalow which is located in a semi-rural position, yet within easy reach of Bridport town centre. Dating back to the 1950s, the property offers spacious and light accommodation which has been carefully maintained and improved under the current ownership with the modern benefits of mains gas fired central heating, uPVC double glazing and cavity wall insulation. Scope remains for enlargement (subject to any necessary consents) which could include conversion of the loft space, for which plans have previously been drawn up, or extension, giving an incoming purchaser the opportunity to create a fantastic countryside home ideally suited to their individual needs.


Internally the accommodation is versatile with the the flexibility to suit a variety of lifestyles and includes a farmhouse style kitchen/breakfast room providing ample fitted units with built in electric oven and gas hob, a useful larder/coat and shoe cupboard and a corner cupboard housing the boiler. The sitting room benefits from a wealth of natural light from glass doors leading directly to the garden and a large bay window, as well as a stone fireplace into which a wood burner is set. Three generous bedrooms can also be accessed from the wide, central hallway, one of which could also be used as a second reception room if required. Two bedrooms benefit from built in storage and the principal bedroom enjoys an ensuite shower room. There is also a family bathroom, in which a utility cupboard houses plumbing for laundry facilities.


Glenhaven enjoys a spacious plot amounting to just over 0.2 of an acre backing onto fields. Primarily laid to lawn and surrounded by established hedges, the south-facing garden offers the sense of seclusion and privacy which makes spending time out of doors so enjoyable, particularly on the charming deck adjoining the stream on the southernmost boundary. There is also a Woolaway single garage with adjoining workshop, which benefits from power and light, and off road parking tandem to the up-and-over vehicle door.


The property backs onto fields on the edge of Bothenhampton; a highly regarded and picturesque village in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Lovely walks are on the doorstep, including a footpath along Marrowbone Lane leading towards West Bay. Bridport town centre is just 1 mile away, offering a broad variety of shopping, leisure and cultural experiences including a sports centre, twice-weekly street markets and an Arts Centre. The Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site at West Bay is just 2 miles drive, and Lyme Regis and Dorchester are both nearby.
