4 bedroom Link Detached House For Sale in Garden Close, Litton Cheney, Dorchester


A rare opportunity to purchase a sought-after village house within the Bride Valley offering 4 bedroom accommodation together with garage/parking and cottage-style garden in a very quiet rural location but with good community spirit and facilities, just 2 miles from the coast.


SITUATION: No 1, Garden Close occupies a corner plot on this select small development within a former village garden setting - hence its name.  There is a local primary school with swimming pool, village hall with range of clubs and activities, a pub and excellent community spirit.  The A35 is approximately 0.5 mile away giving access to the towns of Bridport some 8 miles to the west and the County Town of Dorchester almost equi-distant to the east with its main line rail station to London, Waterloo.

The area is renowned as one of outstanding natural beauty and is popular for active retirement and families requiring a rural life-style change.  The close comprises a few select properties which have not regularly changed ownership, with most occupiers still there from new which portrays the longevity and support for which the lifestyle in Litton Cheney prides itself.

The Jurassic Coastline lies some 3 miles to the south with its beaches and access to the scenic coastal paths for which this part of West Dorset is renowned.

THE PROPERTY was built in the early 1980's by the local reputed builders, C G Fry and Son.  The property features reconstituted stone elevations under a slate roof. The attached garage is linked to the adjoining property's garage and hence it is link-detached.

The property enjoys a certain prominence alongside the village lane and occupies a corner plot within this small, select development.

No 1, Garden Close, has been lovingly maintained with modernised kitchen, bathroom and cloak/wet room facilities, fireplace with multi-fuel stove and renewed flooring.  The windows are mainly wooden and with secondary glazing provided and the heating has remained electrically provided on a 'White Meter Tariff'. There is some scope for updating and improvement over time.  The accommodation is light and spacious and well arranged and viewing is highly recommended.

DIRECTIONS: From the centre of Bridport travelling east on the A35 towards Dorchester, take the crossroad turning after approximately 3 miles down the hill into the village of Litton Cheney.  Turn right at the junction and then bear right in the centre signposted to Askerswell.  Garden Close will be found a short distance along on the left-hand side with No 1 situated on the corner.
