THE PROPERTY

16 St James Park is a spacious and attractive terraced home located in a highly regarded development for over 55s, tucked away in a peaceful village setting close to Bridport. Built in the late 1980s in a charming cottage style, and under the current ownership for the past decade, the property has been well cared for and maintained to a good standard, with scope remaining for personalisation or improvement if desired. With a generous, level rear garden, gas-fired central heating and a single garage in a block nearby, this superb, well-rounded property offers a highly convenient, independent lifestyle.

Internally the well proportioned accommodation is arranged over two floors, which are connected by a wide, straight staircase. The front door opens into a welcoming entrance hall from which both the cloakroom and the open plan sitting/dining room can be accessed. With sliding patio doors leading directly to the private rear garden and a window to the front overlooking the attractively landscaped communal garden, the sitting/dining room is a light and spacious room with a delightful outlook in both directions. The kitchen enjoys the same lovely view across the rear garden and is fitted with modern wall and base units with spaces for appliances. Upstairs there are two generous double bedrooms, both with excellent fitted storage, and a bathroom which is appointed with a walk-in shower.

OUTSIDE

16 St James Park benefits from a lovely, private rear garden which is understood to be one of the larger plots in the development. Comprising a paved sun terrace and a well-kept, level lawn with established flower and shrub borders, the garden enjoys a south-west facing aspect and is a wonderful setting for spending time out of doors. The property also benefits from a single garage which is located in a block just a short walk from the front door, as well as use of the beautifully landscaped communal grounds to the front and parking for residents and visitors alike (subject to availability).
