A spacious two bedroom ground floor ex-Local Authority flat in good order with garden studio/occasional bedroom, outbuilding, garden and on-site parking for several vehicles and within walking distance of Bridport town centre.


SITUATION:  No 29, Coronation Road enjoys a good-sized site in a quiet crescent known as Coronation Road on the south-western outskirts of the town within half-a-mile walk of the town centre.  There is a local corner shop close by, together with primary school, a recreational playing field and football ground, the leisure centre with indoor swimming pool and walks across the fields to the coast. 

Bridport affords comprehensive shopping facilities boosted by a twice-weekly street market, art centre, Electric Palace theatre and cinema and a wide range of professional offices, clubs and organisations. 

The coast at West Bay lies some 2 miles to the south and can be walked to across the fields.  West Bay affords an ancient fishing harbour with boating facilities, beaches, renowned restaurants, golf course on the east cliff and access on to the south West Coastal Path forming part of the Jurassic Coastline.  

Dorchester, the County Town of Dorset, lies some 15 miles to the east where there is a main line rail service to London, Waterloo.

THE PROPERTY  comprises a ground floor flat within a block of four ex-Local Authority flats of mainly brick construction under a tiled roof.  This is one of the older-style council flats with spacious rooms and large double-glazed windows affording light and views.  No 29 comprises an entrance hall, sitting/dining room, good-sized galley-style kitchen with views over the town to distant hills, 2 double bedrooms and a bathroom.  The property was updated and modernised some 9 years ago with re-wiring, cavity wall insulation, new kitchen and bathroom facilities, new central heating system comprising a gas-fired combi-boiler and radiators with individual thermostats. 

The seller is aware that a new bathroom or shower room would probably be priority for a buyer and will negotiate for re-designing and installing as required.

The property enjoys a much larger than average site which has been well re-designed for practicality to include an extensive parking area, terraced front garden, rear garden affording patio and large outdoor chalet/studio which has been well built to provide a useful room all-year round.  There is also a useful brick-built outbuilding ideal for storage/workshop.

There is no forward chain and viewing is highly recommended for full appreciation.
