THE PROPERTY

6 Ridgeway is a delightful detached home located around 1 mile to the north of Bridport town centre and benefitting from extensive, spacious accommodation throughout. The property is understood to date back to the 1950s and enjoys the healthy room proportions, high ceilings and large windows typical of this period of architecture with some original features still in place including picture rails in several rooms. However the property has been greatly improved and modernised under the current ownership and is presented in excellent order throughout with every modern convenience available, creating a fantastic, individual home suitable for a broad variety of purchasers. Owing to its somewhat elevated position on the edge of the town, lovely far-reaching views can be enjoyed from the property, particularly to the rear which faces south and takes in the surrounding hills.

From the porch, the front door opens into a wide, welcoming entrance hall with wood flooring from which most of the ground floor rooms can be accessed. These include a charming sitting room with an ornate stone fireplace with wood burner and an adjoining conservatory; a well proportioned dining room and the kitchen/breakfast room which benefits from fitted units and a cooker range. The kitchen is supported by a lean-to utility room which benefits from doors to the front and rear gardens, fitted units, plumbing for laundry facilities and a cloakroom.

Upstairs, three generous bedrooms, the family bathroom and a separate wet room can be found on the first floor. Each of these bedrooms is of double proportions and two benefit from built-in wardrobes. Both the bathroom and wet room have been improved under the current ownership and are now appointed with attractive, contemporary fittings and decor. A further improvement carried out is the addition of a space-saving staircase leading to the converted former loft which is now arranged as two useful room suitable for a broad variety of purposes including a study, hobby space or additional accommodation, to name but a couple of potential uses.

OUTSIDE

6 Ridgeway enjoys good sized, primarily level garden to the front and rear. At the front, the attractive rendered frontage is framed by an area of lawn with shrub borders, surrounded by railings. Being south-facing and therefore benefitting from a sunny aspect, the rear garden is the perfect setting for spending time out of doors. It has been landscaped to provide a wonderful environment for al fresco dining, relaxing and entertaining without the need for high levels of maintenance and includes a sun deck adjoining the house, a lawn with well stocked borders, a productive apple tree and a greenhouse.

Parking is provided beyond the rear garden where there is a hard standing offering space for 2 vehicles (accessed via Dodhams Farm Close) and there is also a single garage.
