Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Handsome detached 5/6 bedroom period property with a new build interior, a 2 bedroom coach house, extensive garaging, a substantial detached workshop, all set in approx 2.4 acres.

The property is believed to have been originally built back in the early 18th century as a farmhouse and has in recent years undergone a complete transformation including the stripping out the interior of the original house, rebuilding the coach house, the building of a workshop and the landscaping of the grounds. The result is a beautifully proportioned country house with 4 large reception rooms and a kitchen/breakfast room on the ground floor and 6 rooms spread over the 2 floors above served by 3 bathrooms. The interior oozes quality with the period feel of the property being maintained with oak and slate flooring throughout, heavy panelled doors, open fireplaces, traditional-style radiators, window seats and large windows. However, unlike many draughty high maintenance period properties, this house is to all intents and purposes a new build. The property has been replumbed, rewired, had new bathrooms installed and a beautifully crafted handmade kitchen built minimising the running costs and maintenance issues that plague old houses.

On the ground floor the kitchen is undoubtedly the hub of the house with an island unit to its centre and a dining area to one end with double doors overlooking the terrace and gardens behind. The kitchen is equipped with an array of handmade units and cupboards with integral appliances that include a dishwasher, a microwave oven, a high specification gas range cooker with a cooker hood over while to one side there is a walk-in larder. To the other side a doorway leads through to a back hall which in turn leads through to both a cloakroom and a utility room. There are 4 further living rooms on the ground floor that can be used in any number of ways, with 3 of them having open fireplaces. On the first floor there is a principal bedroom suite with a stylish contemporary en-suite shower room and a walk-in wardrobe with the 3 remaining bedrooms sharing 2 bathrooms, also equipped with contemporary quality sanitaryware. On the second floor there are 3 rooms, 2 of which could be used as bedrooms or further reception rooms if needs be.

The Coach House can be split into 3 parts. The main living accommodation consists of a large living room with a kitchen area to one side and a sitting area to the other, beyond which there is a utility room with a shower room off. Upstairs there are 2 good bedrooms each with an en-suite bathroom. To one side there is a large garage with space for 3 or 4 cars above which there is a room reached by an external staircase that could be used either as an office or perhaps a flat. The Coach House is 90% finished but will require some finishing before a building regulations certificate is issued.

The property lies to the centre of the village of Bradpole which lies to the north east side of Bridport, within walking distance of the centre of the town yet with country views from both the house and gardens.

Bridport is a vibrant former rope making town with the Jurassic World Heritage coast to be found nearby at West Bay and is conveniently placed with Dorchester and Weymouth to the east and Axminster to the west. Dorchester, Weymouth and Axminster provide between them a comprehnsive range of shops, public houses and restaurants while the town itself is sufficient for everyday needs. Sporting, walking and riding opportunities abound within the area with many walks to be had from Bradpole itself while the region is well known for both its public and privately funded schooling. Communication links are good with a mainline station at Dorchester and road links are along the A35.
