SITUATION: Tern Cottage is the first property on the left within the private area of West Cliff managed by an Estate Management Committee comprised of local residents and unfrequented by tourists. There is a direct public footpath opposite the property affording a 2 minute walk to the main promenade, beach and coastal path.
West Bay has local shops, food kiosks, a boat harbour with boating trips available and piers for angling/crabbing and lobster pots as well as areas used for water polo, canoeing and gig rowing. The area is renowned for the Jurassic Coastline and there is a cliff-top golf course with popular club house. West Bay has also recently been host to the popular Broadchurch TV series and has always been a well reputed holiday destination for retreats as well as lifestyle homes.
The nearest town of Bridport lies some 2 miles to the north which is often described as Notting Hill on Sea with its large range of mainly independent shops, wide range of festivals including the hat festival, carnival and torchlight procession, beer, food and music festivals and popular street markets on Wednesdays and Saturdays, famed art and craft studios and workshop and active U3A group. There is also a leisure centre with indoor swimming pool, tennis, outdoor and indoor bowls clubs as well as an art centre and the Electric Palace which hosts many local theatre attractions and films.
THE PROPERTY comprises a mature, detached seaside bungalow of traditional construction with colourwashed elevations under a slate roof with attached garage affording scope for conversion to further accommodation.
The property has been well maintained over the years with the addition of the uPVC conservatory which affords good light, space and views and, with two sets of double French doors, integrates the inside with the outside. There are uPVC double-glazed windows, doors and rainwater goods and the chimney breast was re-built in 2007.
The property has the quaint charm of a seaside retreat, typical of West Bay with characteristics of its age still intact - such as picture rails and wood panelled doors.
The gardens are mainly private and secluded and enjoy easterly views.
