St Andrews Road Bridport


SITUATION: The property occupies an elevated position in a private and highly sought after residential area just to the north of the town centre. The setting is generally wooded and there are fine South Easterly views over the surrounding countryside to West Bay and the sea. It is extremely well placed being only 5/10 mins walk to the town centre. The property was built on the former kitchen garden of Coneygar Grove and was designed specifically for the site to take advantage of its aspect. Both primary and secondary schools are within walking distance.

Bridport is a vibrant historic town recently designated as the cultural centre of West Dorset. There is a popular twice-weekly street market, the vintage and artists' quadrant, mainly individual shops, an Art Centre, the Electric Palace theatre/cinema and leisure centre with indoor swimming pool. The central Bucky-Doo Square regularly hosts bands and there are many festivals and events all year round.

The coast at West Bay lies some 2 miles to the south with its fishing and boating harbour, beaches and is the gateway to the Jurassic Coastline and South West Coastal Paths.

THE PROPERTY is an interesting, individual chalet-style bungalow built in 2000 by a local builder to a quality standard, featuring mainly brick elevations under concrete tiled roofs, fully double-glazed with two dormer windows to a large converted attic, a hexagonal dining/garden room to the south and a boot/utility room at the rear. There are some 30 windows in total with all principal rooms enjoying spectacular views to countryside and hillsides, together with coastal views (with a glimpse to the sea) and marvellous skyscapes. These windows also bring good natural light and brightness to the interior.

There are many interesting design details including arched windows, vaulted ceilings and triple aspect glazed dormers to take in the views. Over recent years, the kitchen has been superbly updated with superior fittings and some built-in appliances, as has the en-suite bathroom and family shower room. The accommodation is well proportioned and versatile with lots of storage. The excellent specification includes gas-fired central heating via a modern combi boiler, wood laminate flooring, LED lighting and solid wood panelled doors.

Sitting on the eastern slope of the hill, the gardens are private, sheltered, tranquil and bathed in sunshine for most of the day with an old high brick wall to the north side. There is a sweeping drive to the front and a double garage/workshop.

DIRECTIONS: From the centre of Bridport walk up Barrack Street and into St Andrews Road when the pillared entrance drive will be seen on the left-hand side. Proceed a short way up the hill and "The Secret Garden" is tucked in on the right-hand side.
