Melbury is an individual detached home enjoying a tucked-away, semi rural position within easy reach of Bridport town centre and benefitting from glorious views across neighbouring farmland to the sea at West Bay. It is clear upon arriving at the property that it has been thoughtfully orientated to take full advantage of the vista both inside, where large windows and double- or triple aspects can be found in many of the rooms, and in the south-facing garden which is attractively landscaped and offers a delightful setting for a wonderful outdoor lifestyle. The accommodation is deceptively spacious throughout and, being arranged over two floors with sleeping and bathroom facilities on both floors, is highly versatile with a great degree of flexibility to suit a variety of purchasers. Under the current ownership, which has lasted some 25 years, the property has served as a much-loved home yet scope remains for an incoming purchaser to adapt and update the property to suit their individual needs and style.

Internally the accommodation is well proportioned and includes two interlinking reception rooms, one of which enjoys an open fireplace and sliding glass doors to the garden, a kitchen/breakfast room with adjoining utility/cloakroom and boiler room, a well-appointed wet room, two bedrooms and a study. From the kitchen stairs rise to the first floor where there are two further bedrooms, a family shower room and separate cloakroom. With an adjoining dressing room/office and two windows to the rear taking full advantage of the stunning views, bedroom 2 is a particularly versatile space which offers potential for a variety of uses in its current configuration, or could be sub-divided to provide additional bedroom space if required.


A significant asset to Melbury is the garden which enjoys the same far-reaching outlook as the house. With established, well-stocked borders and mature trees, the garden has been attractively landscaped including a paved sun terrace abutting the house, a sweeping lawn and a summerhouse, creating a fantastic setting for spending time out of doors. To the side of the property is a paved parking area and a detached double garage which benefits from twin up-and-over doors, power and light. In all, the plot measures approximately 0.36 of an acre.


The property is situated in a fantastic setting in Watton, which is a tucked-away hamlet on the edge of Bridport and therefore enjoys close proximity to the town and its broad range of amenities whilst retaining a rural outlook. In Bridport, extensive street markets are held twice weekly and the town has an excellent range of shopping facilities including national and independent retailers, primary and secondary schools, recreational and social amenities and a popular leisure centre with a swimming pool (located just a quarter of a mile from the property). West Bay is only 2 miles to the south, forming part of the stunning Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site, and the West Dorset area as a whole is designated one of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
