A 3 bedroom Listed Grade II town house with attic room forming part of the historic street scene along Bridport’s South Street in need of some improvement and with a very productive garden with green-housing and sheds, just a few minutes’ walk into the town centre

SITUATION: No 133 features a minimal frontage on the raised pavement in South Street, with pedestrian passageway adjoining giving access to the main entrance door and to the garden. The popular street market extends along the higher part of the street on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Residents’ parking permits are available for parking on the street-side opposite. There are Churches of most denominations close by, together with walks along the river and meadows to Morrisons and into the town and West Bay, some 2 miles to the south. The community orchard, nature reserve, leisure centre with indoor swimming pool, the Electric Palace community theatre/cinema and the art centre, together with Bucky Doo Square, the venue for bands, groups and festivities throughout the year, are all just a saunter away.

The coast at West Bay gives access to the South West Coastal Path along the famous Jurassic Coastline, together with beaches, fishing and boating harbour and golf course on East Cliff.

THE PROPERTY comprises a Listed Grade II town house of mainly brick construction under a slate roof and extends substantially to the rear with good-sized productive garden attached. The property displays some original features including some wood panelling to the ground floor window, sash windows to the front, fireplaces, dado rails, old doors and some original exposed floor boards.

Some improvements have been made over the years as the property has been long-term tenanted including a new electric consumer unit (with key meter), smoke alarms and a wood burner in the kitchen. Other updating has included a comprehensive range of bespoke wooden kitchen/utility units.

However, it is fair to say that the property is now in need of further improvement to bring it up to modern-day standards. Mains gas has been connected in the past and there are radiators provided.

Without doubt, a main feature of the property is the highly productive garden area adjoining to the rear which has a wooden greenhouse/potting shed, vegetable beds and sheds which enjoy sunshine for most of the day and there are views to be enjoyed to Bothen Hill in the distance. There is also no forward chain.

DIRECTIONS: Walking South along South Street, the property will be found on the left-hand side just after St Mary’s Church which is on the right.

THE ACCOMMODATION comprises the following:
Timber front entrance door with glazed panes.
INNER HALL with wall boxing housing the electric consumer unit and key meter. Shaped staircase with wooden balustrading rising to the first floor with storage cupboard under.
SITTING ROOM with sash window to the street with attractive wooden panelled reveals, brick fireplace with raised tiled plinth, recess to wall (probably a former doorway), laminate flooring.
BREAKFAST KITCHEN with comprehensive range of bespoke base cupboards and wall-mounted cupboards including a “dresser-style” shelved section with worktops incorporating a one-and-a-half bowl sink unit with mixer tap with sash window overlooking the inner courtyard, tiled surrounds, electric cooker with gas hob and extractor hood over, arched brick fireplace with tiled raised hearth and fitted with a wood-burner with an open-fronted cupboard to the side, ceramic tiled floor. Step up to:
REAR LOBBY with further range of wooden cupboards providing upright and shelved storage cupboards, an airing cupboard with pre-lagged Fortic tank and a door opening to a walk-in workshop/utility space. Feature, part-glazed door to:
BATHROOM comprising a wood panelled Roca bath with Triton shower unit over, wash basin and WC. Part-tiled surrounds.
LANDING with door to staircase leading to the attic room.
BEDROOM 1: A double bedroom overlooking the street, rack shelving, former fireplace with tiled surround, built-in wardrobe.
BEDROOM 2 with tiled surround to former fireplace opening, TV aerial point.
INNER PASSAGEWAY with window to west.
BEDROOM 3: A good-sized double bedroom at the rear of the building affording north and east aspects with views to Bothen Hill.
An open room into the eaves with older-style roof window giving good natural light.

The main entrance door is approached via an open passageway to the side of the building and the pathway extends into a central yard area with seating provided. A raised terrace gives access to old but serviceable garden room/potting shed. A pathway to the east side leads to a gated garden allotment which has a couple of sheds and is well cultivated for produce. This garden enjoys much sunshine for most of the day and backs onto the adjoining property’s garden.

SERVICES: Mains water, drainage and electricity. We understand that mains gas was formerly connected.
