An individual detached bungalow delightfully located just off the coast road between Weymouth and Portesham, enjoying a secluded position with views over the surrounding countryside.

Originally of timber construction and dating from the early 1900's, the property has been subject to enlargement and rebuilding of external elevations. Under the same ownership for the last 44 years, the property offers excellent potential for further enlargement and modernisation or alternatively, for the erection of a replacement dwelling (STPP).

Approached via its own driveway from the lane with hardstanding for several cars and leading to the bungalow and attached garage. Internally, the accommodation is well proportioned with entrance hall, spacious sitting room with open fireplace, leading into a delightful triple aspect sun room with door opening onto a south facing terrace.

There is a kitchen/breakfast room, 3 bedrooms and bathroom.

Externally, gardens surround the bungalow and are mainly laid to lawn with mature trees and shrubs. At the rear is a stable block, tack room, greenhouse and open fronted store.

Beyond the garden boundary is a paddock of around 2 acres with derelict field shelter.

The property is situated in Shilvinghampton, close to the picturesque village of Portesham which lies just inland from the World Heritage Jurassic coastline, including the world famous Chesil Beach which stretches from Lyme Regis along the coast to Portland.

The county town of Dorchester and coastal resorts of Bridport, West Bay and Weymouth are all within around a 10 mile radius, providing a wide range of shopping and leisure facilities as well as schools and a variety of sporting pursuits including golf at West Bay, Weymouth and Dorchester (Came Down), sailing and water sports at Weymouth and West Bay. The picturesque village of Abbotsbury famous for its stone cottages and local amenities including village stores, St Catherine’s Chapel, the Swannery and Chesil beach is around 2 miles away to the west.
