Box Cottage Uploders Dorset

Semi Detached

SITUATION: No 1, Box Cottage, forms part of an attractive village street scene of almost all period properties in a Conservation Area. Uploders has a pub and Chapel whilst, in the adjoining village of Loders, there is a recreational ground, primary school, modern village hall, another pub and Parish Church. These are active villages with good community spirit and they are surrounded by walks and bridleways through scenic countryside.

The renowned and vibrant market town of Bridport lies just 3 miles away with its twice-weekly street market, art centre, Electric Palace Theatre/Cinema, vintage and artists' quadrant and leisure centre with indoor swimming pool.

The coast at West Bay lies some 5 miles to the south-west with its fishing and boating harbour, beaches and access to the Jurassic Coastline and South West Coastal Paths.

This whole area is renowned for its beautiful countryside and coastline and the wide range of leisure activities provided making this a popular area for living full-time or holidays.

THE PROPERTY comprises a semi-detached period cottage featuring deep mellow stone elevations under a slate roof. The property has been superbly updated over recent years harmonising today's modern lifestyle requirements with a wealth of character features which include a fine inglenook fireplace with woodburner fitted, old wooden internal doors and exposed ceiling beams. Modern improvements have included double-glazed windows and front doors, modern bathroom suite downstairs and en-suite cloakroom upstairs together with a new oil-fired boiler and laminate flooring to the ground floor.

Without doubt the very long rear garden with useful stone outbuilding is a very appealing feature as are the northerly views to the rising hillside beyond.
