An immaculate, stylish, detached 3/4 bedroom townhouse just a short step from Bridport town centre, with plenty of off street parking and views to the rear.

This property is believed to have been built in 1936 as one of three houses built in order to house a local businessman and his two daughters. The property sits within short walking distance of all the towns amenities in a sought after location and has lovely views over the towns roofscape onto open countryside. The property was built with comfort in mind with large rooms, high ceilings, big picture windows and features that include both a spacious hallway and landing above, two fireplaces, original doors, an original staircase, original oak plank and herringbone tiled floors to name but a few.

The principal living areas lie to the rear of the property overlooking the gardens with, on the right hand side, a large sitting room complete with bay window and fireplace equipped with a coal effect gas fire beyond which there is a study with a herringbone tiled floor. The kitchen lies on the left hand side with space for a large dining table to its centre and a comprehensive range of floor and wall mounted units and cupboards with work surfaces over. To one side of the room is a larder and to the other a useful storage cupboard.

To the end of the kitchen a doorway gives way to a utility room with a second sink and drainer. There is space and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer.

The formal dining room lies to the front of the house and has another fireplace equipped with a coal effect gas fire and an attractive bay window looking out over the front garden. In addition off the hallway, which has a lovely oak floor, there is a cloakroom and an entrance porch with a second herringbone tile floor.

Upstairs there are three good bedrooms off the spacious landing with a fourth bedroom accessed through one of the larger bedrooms and all the bedrooms served by a well-equipped bathroom and a second separate WC. It has been suggested that, subject to obtaining the necessary building consents, the second WC could be expanded into the airing cupboard to create a shower room. Above the first floor there is a good size attic area that could also, subject to obtaining the necessary building consents, be converted for further accommodation.

The property is in immaculate decorative order throughout, was re-plumbed and rewired in 2007, is fully double glazed and has gas fired central heating.

Outside

To the front of the house a pillar flanked entrance gives way to a substantial area of driveway and garden laid to a mixture of stone paving and tarmac providing parking and turning for a number of cars - a rarity in Bridport town centre.

To the rear of the property is a terrace that stretches the width of the house with a raised seating area to one side that makes an outstanding entertaining area during the summer months and from which to enjoy views up to Bothen Hill. Above the seating area there is an electric remotely controlled awning ideal for keeping out of the sun in the middle of the day. Steps from the terrace lead down to the main body of the garden that to the centre is for the most part laid to lawn and edged by well-stocked herbaceous and shrub borders. To one side there are three raised vegetable beds and beneath the terrace a useful storage area for both a mower and a barbecue.
