Property Description

Full description

A most attractive 3 bedroom (all with en-suites) detached Purbeck stone split-level bungalow providing extensive accommodation in this favoured rural village within easy reach of Bridport and the Coast

SITUATION:  The property enjoys a superb quiet location in the village of West Milton with an attractive outlook over the garden with a small stream forming the rear boundary.  The village comprises mostly period properties many of which were constructed of mellow stone with thatched roofs.  The village is situated amongst unspoilt countryside and is renowned for its outstanding natural beauty.  West Milton lies well away from any major road which helps to safeguard the peace and tranquillity, which is one of the area's attractions.  At the same time, it is not remote with the A35/Dorchester road lying about 3 miles to the south.  Close-by there are other villages of repute including Powerstock and Nettlecombe and excellent village inns, a parish church and primary school.  

The market town of Bridport is about three miles distant where there are the usual range of banks and excellent shopping centre, health and leisure centre and a further one-and-a-half miles beyond is the West Dorset coastline including West Bay, Golden Cap and Chesil Beach which is now designated with World Heritage status.

Dorchester, the County Town of Dorset, lies about sixteen miles to the east and here there is a mainline rail service to London, Waterloo.

THE PROPERTY:  Campions comprises a quality detached village property which we understand was built in the mid 1960's and features attractive Purbeck stone elevations under a tiled, lined and insulated roof.  Under current ownership since 2002 the property has been subject to extensive enlargement and improvements, including a two storey extension.   The property now provides a comfortable family or retirement home in a glorious village location.  Features include spacious rooms the majority of which overlook the garden. 

The property provides versatile living accommodation with three double bedrooms all with en-suite facilities together with a spacious hall, sitting room, well fitted kitchen/breakfast room, conservatory, study area and at lower ground floor level a study/bedroom 4, cloakroom.  Other features include oil fired central heating, mainly uPVC double glazed windows and a security alarm.

A driveway leads to a gravel parking area with an integral double garage.  Garden and grounds surround the property having been attractively laid out and stocked with a small stream forming the northern boundary.

DIRECTIONS:  From Bridport proceed along the B3066 Beaminster Road for approximately one mile and just beyond the Gore Cross round-about take the first right signposted West Milton.  Follow the road for approximately two-and-a-half miles through the village and just before the hump-backed bridge turn left into Ruscombe Lane.  Turn immediately left by Ashbrook and Campions is tucked into the corner on the left.
