A superb period style modern property in a desirable edge of village location within easy reach of Bridport

Riverside house is a substantial and fine looking family house built about 15 years ago to an extremely high standard with Hamstone
elevations under a thatched roof and incorporates an attached but independent annexe. This substantial house is extremely well laid out,
flexible accommodation arranged over two floors including a large kitchen and sitting room and superb double height reception hall. The annexe currently configured to provide two bedrooms, living area, bathroom and a kitchen makes it suitable for a range of different uses and we are also advised that there is planning permission to further extend it. The primary accommodation is spacious and finished to a high standard with bespoke hardwood joinery and a large farmhouse
kitchen/breakfast room.
The house is situated in a large plot extending to 1.15 acres in a delightful edge of village location, backing onto farmland and just about 1 mile from the sought after Georgian market town of Bridport.
Riverside is accessed from a quiet village lane where there is a spacious gravelled private drive with ample parking and access to a double garage. The driveway sweeps around to the front of the house where there is a level lawn and mature trees. The rear, which can be accessed to the side of the property has a further large lawn leading down to the river Asker, beyond which is open farmland and lovely rural views.
Immediately to the rear of the house a terrace
overlooks the lawn interspersed with specimen trees and a superb pond with a decked seating area to one side. A useful paddock and large timber shed are located on the southern boundary.
Riverside is situated in a delightful location, with
country views on the eastern edge of the thriving
village of Bradpole about 1 mile from the centre of
Bridport. The village has a shop/Post Office, the
pretty Holy Trinity Church, village hall and a
butcher's shop. The attractive and vibrant Georgian
market town of Bridport with its immensely popular
twice weekly market and regular farmers and
vintage markets have an excellent range of facilities including shops, both national and independent restaurants, coffee shops and supermarkets including Waitrose, Morrison's and Co-op.
