4 bedroom Detached House For Sale in Burton Road, Bridport, Dorset, DT6


A superior 4 bedroom detached, character 1930's house superbly modernised over the years to suit today's lifestyle enjoying magnificent views to the sea and coastline, together with detached double garage, extensive parking and beautiful garden pod room/home office.

SITUATION: The property occupies a corner site adjoining Wych Ridge, a private cul-de-sac, enjoying superior wide-span views over the coast, countryside, sea and sky. There is a close by access to the old railway line which now provides a direct footpath/bicycle route to the coastal fishing village of West Bay some 1.25 miles to the south (ideal for dog walking too). West Bay has a good fishing harbour, pebble beaches and range of facilities including renowned restaurants and cafes and provides excellent coastal pursuits. It is also a gateway to the Jurassic Coastline and South West Coastal Path.

The property is set well back off the Burton Road with pavement and grassed area to the frontage. The pavement affords a walk into the town centre of Bridport, some 0.5 mile distant. Bridport is a vibrant market town with many individual shops boosted by a twice-weekly street market, art centre, leisure centre with indoor swimming pool, Electric Palace community theatre, artists' and vintage quadrant and hosts many events and festivals all year round.

THE PROPERTY comprises a detached 1930's house featuring rendered and colourwashed elevations under a tiled roof. It has been in the same ownership for some 22 years and the builder/joiner owner has continually improved the property for full family enjoyment to a very high standard whilst retaining some original character features, including picture rails and some bottle coving. There are new doors, floor coverings and lighting. This is not a large rambling house but a beautifully appointed and presented property which would suit those downsizing or those looking for a work-from-home property.

The detached double garage has been built in keeping with the main home and provides a large garage/workshop space suitable for conversion
to an annex, subject to any necessary planning permissions. There is also a garden "pod" of unique design painstakingly created to provide a studio/garden room which overlooks the well landscaped gardens and would also be ideal for a home office.
