New Year 2018. A fresh start.

New Year 2018.  A fresh start.

This is the time of year for making a fresh start and new resolutions.  Many will be considering making a change in circumstances which may be upsizing, downsizing or looking for new opportunities.  Bridport is an excellent place to make these changes it has all the charm and character one could wish with wide Georgian streets and a buzzing twice weekly market.  Bridport provides a good mix of independent shops, coffee houses and eateries.  It has a good medical centre and cottage hospital, dentists, banks and a mixture of supermarkets.  The town has a lively arts scene, literary, food and beer festivals, with access to a unique world heritage coastline and stunning countryside made famous in literature and on the big and small screens.  What more could one ask for other than a famous thatched brewery and it has that too!

For those upsizing, Kennedys are pleased to offer a traditionally built detached home in a quiet town centre location. This home offers just under 2000 square feet of accommodation including 5 bedrooms, 2 of which are en-suite, and 3 reception rooms together with an integral garage. In the garden is a large timber chalet ideal for extra summer visitors or as an outdoor office. The garden has a glimpse of countryside views, a raised terrace, patio and a further area of garden to the west side with lawn and shrubs.  A paved drive provides for off street parking. All this accommodation is very centrally located just a few minutes’ walk from the high street and in a quiet cul-de-sac. EPC band C. The guide price for this individual home is £460,000.

For downsizing we would suggest viewing a spacious but easy to maintain 2 bedroom ground floor flat.  The room sizes are good with large double glazed windows   This very well presented home is within walking distance of town, has parking for several vehicles and a garden too. The garden features a large timber fully insulated and double glazed chalet which can afford all year round accommodation suitable for use as a home office or studio space. There is also a second outbuilding/store shed. EPC band C.  The guide price for this flat is £142,500. The property is subject to a section 157 restriction (local buyer).

For those looking for new opportunities this year we have a lovely detached cottage sympathetically extended and renovated and located on the northern edge of the town adjoining open fields.  The accommodation has been renovated very thoughtfully with great attention to detail. There are attractive wooden floors, log burning stoves and Rayburn, a hallway, 2 reception rooms, kitchen, utility and cloakroom with 2 double bedrooms and a shower room upstairs. The gardens are very private and offer the “good life” factor with raised vegetable beds, greenhouse and space for chickens, etc. There is also a terrace area, formal gardens with shrubs and trees and a range of sheds and outbuildings which might provide a workshop, studio, home office or storage space.  The guide price for this pretty Grade II Listed cottage is £425,000.

Please contact us for property advice if you would like to make a fresh start this year. All the team at Kennedys would be delighted to help you if we can.
