THE PROPERTY

174 St Andrews Road is a very attractive and highly individual detached character house, occupying a private tucked away setting, enjoying lovely open views, yet in a highly convenient location within easy reach of Bridport town, local amenities and schools. The property was believed to have originally been a coach house, dating back to the Victorian period and was skilfully converted to a unique private home, having colour washed brick and upper tile elevations. Under the current ownership since 2010, a comprehensive programme of refurbishment and alteration has been undertaken, and it is offered in excellent order with all modern amenities, although still retaining a whole number of character features including woodblock flooring throughout the ground floor, deep skirting boards and panelled doors. The accommodation is very bright due to the principal south facing aspect, well presented and good-sized, whilst enjoying the lovely views over the nearby fields. The many excellent features include gas fired central heating, uPVC sealed unit windows/doors, well equipped modern kitchen with oak worktops and comprehensive appliances and a modern attractive bathroom.

On the ground floor there is a good-sized reception hall incorporating a large built in storage/utility cupboard with plumbing for a washing machine, sitting room with feature fireplace and part wood style panelling, study/dining room or fourth double bedroom, and a large kitchen/dining room enjoying a double aspect and a very well equipped kitchen with comprehensive units, solid oak worktops, Lamona gas hob, electric double oven, cooker hood and integrated dishwasher, downlighters, large understair cupboard and uPVC outside stable door and a bathroom equipped with a modern suite, comprising a P-shaped bath with mains shower over, WC and wash basin and chrome towel rail (dual - central heating or independent electric) plus downlighters. On the first floor there is a very large landing with extensive under eaves storage cupboards and three double bedrooms, all enjoying the country views (and two of the bedrooms have extensive under eaves storage cupboards).

OUTSIDE

The property is set well back off St Andrews Road, and approached over a shared private road and through double wooden gates onto a long gravelled driveway, leading to a turning and parking area and to a side lean-to/carport and a good-sized detached brick store/workshop (most likely dating back again to the Victorian period) with power, light and stable door.

There are good-sized level and private gardens, principally facing south and again enjoying the lovely open views across the nearby fields. There are large expanses of lawn, interspersed with a wide variety of mature trees and shrubs, including apple trees, a small wildlife pond, and in a sheltered corner a paved terrace with productive vine.

SITUATION

The property enjoys a great location, being set well back and hidden off St Andrews Road, in a secluded and tucked away setting, yet very conveniently located within easy reach of Bridport town, local supermarkets and primary and secondary schools. There is also easy access to open countryside including the nearby water meadows and a cycle path (giving safe access down to West Bay, Bridport town and up to Loders). Bridport is a thriving and historic market town, offering an excellent range of shopping, business, and social amenities, together with a popular leisure centre with swimming pool. The popular harbour coastal resort of West Bay is only about 1.5 miles to the south, forming part of the stunning Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site and the West Dorset area as a whole is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
