Arrowfield Bridport

Apartment

SITUATION: The property is located on the southern fringe of Bridport within easy walking distance of a corner shop, the local primary school, recreational ground, leisure centre with indoor swimming pool, the allotment gardens and Morrisons supermarket. This is a popular location within easy reach of local facilities and with access to walks into open countryside, Eype and to the coast at West Bay some 2 miles to the south with access to the Jurassic Coastline and South West Coastal Path.

The property is tucked off the main thoroughfare of Alexandra Road, Skilling and adjoins the recreational field and allotment gardens. There is easy access into South Street, Bridport, with its adjoining community orchard and allotments.

THE PROPERTY comprises a purpose-built flat within a development of some 50 houses and flats built in the 1980's featuring brick elevations under a tiled roof, with double-glazed windows and gas-fired central heating. This is a Magna-owned development with s.157 occupancy restriction limiting purchase to those who have lived or have worked in West Dorset for the last 3 years or be coming to the area for employment. Other circumstances will be considered - please contact the agents for details.

The property enjoys superb views over the town to distant hills and towards the coast. The accommodation affords lounge/dining room, breakfast kitchen, 2 bedrooms, a wet room and a walk-in storage cupboard. It is fair to say that the property is in need of improvement internally.

Outside there is a large inner courtyard affording residents' parking and dustbin storage.

This is a golden opportunity for first-time buyers or any local person with building tradesmen skills given the existence of mould (a survey on this is available to prospective purchasers) and there is considered to be no damp prevalent at present. There is no forward chain and the property is offered for sale with vacant possession.

Take the second left-hand turning into Magdalen Lane and take the second left into Alexandra Road. Proceed around the corner, past the Green and corner shop and take the left-hand turning into Princess Road and the entrance to the Arrowfields flats will be found on the left-hand side. Follow signage to No 26.

Communal front and rear access doors on different levels open to the communal staircases rising to the first floor. The private entrance door to No 26 will be found on the right-hand side of the first-floor landing and opens to an
