Situation And Amenities - The village has a wealth of local amenities including a church, primary school, pub and post office/shop and a thriving and artistic local community. As well as a good variety of local primary and secondary schooling options, Marshwood lies within the catchment of the renowned Woodroffe school in Lyme Regis. The village is surrounded by the beautiful rolling countryside with Dorset's highest hill, Pilsdon Pen nearby and the surrounding countryside offering an abundance of walks and bridleways. Lamberts Castle, which is one of a number of impressive iron aged hill forts in West Dorset, is nearby and is very popular with dog walkers. The village is ideally placed to give access to Axminster, five miles away, which gives good rail links to London and the southeast and westwards to Exeter or further into Devon and Cornwall. To the south, there is access to the stunning Jurassic Coast at the pretty harbour town of Lyme Regis which has featured in many films over the years. There are also excellent walking and riding out opportunities which are easily accessible from the property.

Description - Wild Swans is an unusual and bespoke home that offers a wealth of possibilities and the most extraordinary view across the Marshwood Vale and out to sea. The house sits in a sizeable plot 0.68 of an acre and backs on to open fields that sweep down from the property, therefore maintaining the outlook. This Dormer bungalow has been extended upon over the years to create a sizeable home that could be an excellent plot (STRC) or just a home that would benefit from remodelling and updating. The accommodation currently entails; porch, hallway, kitchen breakfast room with Belling stove, dual aspect sitting room with multi-fuel burner and patio doors to the terrace with the views beyond, dining room with views, family bathroom, utility room and three downstairs bedrooms (one currently being used as a study). Upstairs there are three rooms, a master with en-suite shower room, a through room which could work as a sizeable dressing area to the master and a further double bedroom.

Outside - Outside, the property is approached via its own drive with parking for several vehicles with a detached single garage and an integrated garage beyond. The grounds encompasses the property largely extending to the sides, with uninterrupted views to the front. There is a small patio area off the sitting room and an abundance of space for a kitchen garden. The garden already houses a shed and a greenhouse. The plot could easily accommodate a house of a bigger footprint (STRC) although the current square footage has plenty of scope and potential as is.

Services - Oil fired central heating. Mains water. Septic Tank.

Directions - From the Bridport office leave the town to the west along the B3162 heading north towards Broadwindsor passing the village of Salwayash. At Broadwindsor turn left onto the one way system taking the next turning on the left for Birdsmoorgate on to the B3164.
