3 bedroom Bungalow For Sale in 109 East Road, Bridport, Dorset, DT6


A detached 3 bedroom bungalow in need of updating and with scope for extension with extensive parking, garage and useful outbuildings, together with large level and very productive gardens

SITUATION: The property is located at the end of East Road with direct pedestrian access gate to the main road but is approached off King Charles Way by car to a huge driveway/parking area. The bus stops on the A35 offer buses into the town centre of Bridport (some 1 mile to the west) and to Dorchester (approximately 14 miles to the east). There are primary and secondary schools within walking distance and the Co-op supermarket and Lidl are on the lower slope of the hill with walks close to Happy Island river and across the meadows. The town centre of Bridport offers a wide range of mainly individual shops boosted by a twice-weekly street market, business parks, medical centre, art centre and Electric Palace community theatre/cinema, artists’ studios/vintage quadrant and Leisure Centre with indoor swimming pool.

THE PROPERTY dates from the 1950’s and features mainly brick elevations under a hipped, tiled concrete roof offering scope for conversion to additional accommodation, subject to any necessary planning permissions. The property has been progressively updated over the years but is now in need of improvement to meet today’s modern lifestyle.

The accommodation is light, spacious and versatile and presently comprises an entrance porch to a hallway with lounge, kitchen/dining room and cloakroom off. An inner hall leads to a storage/utility area with 3 bedrooms and bathroom off. The property benefits from a modern gas-fired boiler to radiators throughout and double-glazed windows.

Outside the level gardens extend to the front and rear and are well enclosed. Attached to the west is a covered way/storage room, a brick built garage with tiled hipped roof and an adjoining large potting shed. Vehicular entrance gates off King Charles Way (a private road) open to a long concrete driveway and parking area for approximately 7 cars with raised beds/gravelled area, cultivated vegetable plot, large greenhouse and the pleasure garden provides lawn with a profusion of plants and has an access gate direct onto East Road.

DIRECTIONS: From the centre of Bridport travelling East along East Road (the A35 to Dorchester), take the first left-hand turning at the top of the hill into Lee Lane and then first left into King Charles Way. Proceed a short way along and into the private lane section and double gates will be found marked “109 East Road”.
