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


A virtually detached 4 bed family home set within a quiet cul-de-sac on the edge of this popular rural location of Litton Cheney in the Bride Valley, affording superb views towards the coast and with some scope for improvement.


SITUATION:  No 2 Garden Close is just one of a small select development built in the early 1980's by the local reputed builders, C G Fry and Son.  These properties rarely come for sale as their size and accommodation will suit a variety of needs.   There is a local primary school with swimming pool, village hall with a range of clubs and activities, a pub and excellent community spirit.  The A35 is approximately half-a-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 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 features reconstituted stone elevations under a slate roof and is virtually detached just linked by its garage to the neighbour's garage.  No 2 Garden Close has been lovingly maintained but there is scope for further improvement to update facilities.  The accommodation presently affords an entrance hall with connecting door to the garage, a cloakroom, lounge with Purbeck stone raised fire place, dining room with patio doors opening to the garden and kitchen/breakfast room with comprehensive solid wood units on the ground floor.  On the first floor there is a minstrel's gallery landing with 4 bedrooms and a large bathroom.  The property benefits from electric heating as well as an open fire with warm air ducts.

There is a pleasant enclosed rear garden enjoying the east and southerly sunshine with a large patio area and a front garden with driveway providing parking and leading to to the attached garage.

The rooms are light and spacious and there is some scope for lifestyle changes to meet today's modern standards.

Without doubt the advantage of this property is the complete tranquillity with no traffic noise and the enjoyment of birdsong and the delightful views and aspects.

DIRECTIONS:  From the centre of Bridport travelling east on the A35 towards Dorchester, take the cross road turning after approximately 3 miles down the hill into the village of Litton Cheney.  Turn right at the junction and bear right in the centre sign posted to Askerswell.  Garden Close will be found a short distance along on the left hand side with No 2 situated just within the cul-de-sac.
