THE PROPERTY
Port Bredy is a handsome stone built Grade II Listed building , which was converted by Harkstave Ltd in circa 2000 to provide an exclusive development of high quality apartments of individual character. Built in 1836 and mentioned in Thomas Hardy's "Mayor of Casterbridge", Port Bredy has a fascinating history. The building is constructed of local stone to the Greek Cross floor plan and was originally used as a workhouse which in 1929 became in infirmary and eventually a hospital. The hospital closed in 1996 bringing to an end Port Bredy's 160 years in service and creating the opportunity for its refurbishment and transformation.

The flat is a very spacious first floor apartment enjoying a prime south facing aspect with far reaching views over the town to the sea at West Bay. The excellent specification includes gas fired central heating with updated boiler, a well fitted kitchen with solid oak fronted units/worktops and comprehensive built in appliances (De Dietrich stainless steel 5 burner gas hob, cooker hood and eye level electric double oven, integrated fridge/freezer, washing machine and Miele dishwasher), attractive shower room fittings, solid oak internal doors and built in wardrobes to both bedrooms. Character features include high ceilings with wood panelling, beams and downlighters, exposed stone, exposed brick work, brick feature fireplace and sash windows. The property has been under the current ownership since 2005 and some upgrading is now ideally required.

The apartment also has the benefit of its own allocated basement parking space and store.
