The property is a highly individual detached character home offering versatile accommodation and principally facing south with views over the village to the sea. It was originally the coach house to the neighbouring house Ewell Court and dates back to Victorian times. The Coach House was initially converted into two cottages and under the current ownership adapted into one large private family home. The property has colour washed brick faced elevations under a slate roof, together with cottage-style timber windows. Character style features include ceiling beams, open fireplaces and the original cobbled courtyard. The many excellent features include a fitted kitchen with solid limed oak units, oven and hob, a recently upgraded bathroom with Jacuzzi bath and upgrading of the family bathroom to a wet room. Planning permission was obtained in August 2009 to convert the remaining part of the loft space to provide a snug (with fixed stairs off the principal bedroom) and 2 dormer windows on the south side which would provide excellent sea views.

Further features include excellent parking with garaging potential and attractive well stocked private gardens.

The property is set well back off Shipton Lane and approached through double metal gates onto a long tarmac driveway leading onto a cobbled parking area.


The front gardens are terraced being principally gravelled together with a wide range of shrubs and a GREENHOUSE. The rear garden is walled has two vines and a selection of fruit trees (plum, peach, apple and pear) on the south facing wall with a herb garden.

The property occupies a private and elevated setting in Shipton Lane in this highly sought-after and picturesque village. Burton Bradstock lies on the coast and is considered to be one of the most attractive villages in West Dorset. It is a Conservation village and the centre consists largely of period stone and thatched cottages for which the area is particularly well known. There are excellent local amenities including a shop/garage, post office, library, public houses, church, village hall and primary school. There is an excellent beach which forms part of the stunning Jurassic Coast. Virtually on the doorstep are public footpaths giving easy access to open countryside, to the beach and cliff top beyond.

The thriving market town of Bridport and the harbour/coastal resort of West Bay with its 18-hole golf course are both within about 3 miles to the west. The beautiful coastal road is also nearby giving access to the larger towns of Dorchester and Weymouth, both within main line rail services to London.
