A beautifully presented detached 3 bed village residence with large garage and conservatory enjoying a private corner site and views to the hills in quiet location, 2 miles from Bridport and 5 miles from the coast

SITUATION: The property occupies a very private corner plot within a small well established close in the heart of the village of Uploders just a minutes' walk from the Crown pub and with Methodist Chapel closeby used as a local meeting place for many community events. This is a Conservation Area and there are many walks easily accessed across the beautiful West Dorset countryside.

The adjoining village of Loders has a large modern village hall used for a wealth of clubs and activities, a recreational ground, the Loders Arms pub, a small primary school and there are many community events.

The A35 is out of earshot but lies only about half-a-mile distant with the vibrant town of Bridport about 3 miles to the west and the County Town of Dorchester some 13 miles to the east with its main line rail station to London, Waterloo.

The Jurassic Coastline lies approximately 5 miles to the south giving access to beaches, a fishing harbour at West Bay and the South West Coastal Paths.

THE PROPERTY comprises a well appointed detached Purbeck stone and slate house with double garage, built in the 1970's and recently substantially updated and beautifully presented. The property benefits from uPVC double-glazed windows and doors, fascias and bargeboards, new flooring and internal doors, mainly new plumbing with full oil-fired central heating to new radiators and with a new water heater, quality fitted kitchen with mainly built-in appliances together with new bathroom and cloakroom suites, a multi-fuel stove to the sitting room and plenty of storage spaces. Re-design of the accommodation makes this now a lifestyle home from which to enjoy country life to the full.

There is every attention to detail and the large windows attract good natural flow of light to the interior and overlook the delightful sun-bathed gardens to the hillside views. There is much privacy to be enjoyed and the conservatory is a beautiful space bringing the outside in.

The garage with parking spaces in front is an additional benefit and provides workshop space too.

The property is being offered for sale with no forward chain as the sellers have temporary accommodation available to them.
