West Road


SITUATION: Elmgrove enjoys a corner plot on the junction of West Road and Duck Street which leads into Symondsbury. This is an ideal location for walking into the vibrant town centre of Bridport, approx 0.75 miles distant, and across the fields to Eype on the Jurassic Coastline. Symondsbury Village is less than a mile away with its parish church, the Ilchester Arms pub, the Symondsbury Kitchen and business park and has the Symene Football/Cricket club close by.

The property is also ideally located for schools - not only the Sir John Colfox School and Bridport primary schools but there is a bus stop close by for travelling to Lyme Regis for Woodroffe School, Colyton for Colyton Grammar and Axminster where there is a main line rail station to Exeter for further education opportunities.

There are so many family opportunities for leisure and recreation too - and there are very local Parish allotment gardens within easy reach.

THE PROPERTY essentially comprises a period 3-storey town house with impressive frontage giving it a prominent street presence. Very much a unique property, it is not Grade II Listed but features mainly recently K-rendered elevations under a slate roof and has Georgian-style double-glazed UPVC sash-style windows to the main frontage with casement and Velux windows elsewhere affording good natural light and brightness to the interior. An extension to the rear of the property was carried out by a reputed firm of builders in the 1980's of cavity brick construction. A large single-storey conservatory/sun room extending into the hard-landscaped rear garden was added in August 2018 and enjoys under-floor heating.

The property has been well maintained and updated as necessary but in keeping with the character of the building. In particular there is a lovely landing area on the first floor with stained glass window feature and balustraded areas with Velux windows over and views to the open countryside.

DIRECTIONS: From the centre of Bridport travelling West along West Street, go straight over the two mini-roundabouts into West Allington. Continue for about 0.75 miles and the property will be found on the right-hand side on the corner of West Road/Duck Street, Symondsbury.

There is on-lane parking immediately to the side of the property for 2/3 cars with a turning area on the adjoining property. Double, wooden-gated vehicular doors open to the rear of the property into the well designed paved area which would provide additional parking if required on site and leads to the ADJOINING GARAGE which has power and light connected and lends itself for a workshop space or home-office area.

This enclosed rear courtyard area has been well hard-landscaped and provides plenty of scope for decorative pots and planters.

There are allotment gardens closeby for those wishing to cultivate fruit and vegetables (subject to any waiting lists).

The green area on the opposite side of the road is owned by the Highways Authority but they have previously been happy for this property to keep it tended and suitably planted.
