1 Howard Close is a spacious and beautifully presented home which is enviably positioned on a generous corner plot in one of Bridport's most sought-after residential addresses. The property was built in 2000 with attractive, cottage-style stone-and brick-faced elevations, giving it the external appearance of an older building, and has been enhanced in subsequent years with the addition of a conservatory to the side, providing a useful indoor-outdoor link between the house, the garage and the gardens. Under the current ownership the property has been further improved with the addition of uPVC double glazed windows, a new oven, hob and sink in the kitchen and a quality new front door, creating a comfortable and convenient home ideally suited to modern family life.

Internally the accommodation is arranged in a simple, classical layout. The front door opens into a wide, welcoming entrance hall which gives access to two delightful reception rooms, including a triple aspect sitting room with a feature fireplace and a large dining room, as well as the kitchen/breakfast room which is fitted with traditional units providing ample storage as well as a breakfast bar. From the kitchen, the conservatory can be accessed which provides a covered link between the house and the outside and benefits from a tiled floor, making this an ideal place to enter the house with muddy boots and dogs. There is also a ground floor cloakroom and storage beneath the stairs.

On the first floor 4 bedrooms, including three doubles, and the family bathroom are arranged around a central landing. Of particular note is the principal bedroom which benefits from built-in wardrobes, an ensuite shower room and dual aspect windows over looking the garden and the adjoining green. Bedroom 4 is a generous single which also enjoys built-in furniture including ample storage and a desk, making this an ideal study or single bedroom.


The property stands near the centre of a generous, established plot which borders the green on two sides and therefore enjoys an open outlook. The charming stone frontage is framed by an easily maintained front lawn which is interspersed with interesting flora including a Monkey Puzzle tree. Stretching around the rear and side of the house, the rear garden is fantastically landscaped to take full advantage of sun throughout the day and is centred around a superb water feature comprising two linked ornamental fish ponds. Stocked with a broad variety of exciting plantlife, the garden has been clevely designed with a tropical atmosphere, making this a wonderful place for al fresco dining, relaxing and entertaining.

Parking is well provided for to the side where there is a double garage with twin up-and-over doors, water, power and light, adjoining which is a tarmac drive with space for up to 4 cars.


Howard Close is a sought-after residential cul-de-sac located on the fringe of Bridport, yet within easy reach of the town's picturesque centre where there is a broad variety of shopping, leisure, dining and cultural experiences to suit all interests including a twice-weekly market. The area is designated one of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with Jellyfields Nature Reserve a short distance from the property, offering fantastic country walks, and the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site at West Bay just 2 miles away.
