THE PROPERTY

Barn Corner is a charming detached family home located in one of Bridport's most sought after addresses. The property dates back to 1933 when it was built to a quality specification and is a superb example of this period of architecture, with many original features still visible throughout including picture rails, high ceilings and stunning fireplaces with wooden mantles in the reception rooms. Under the current ownership, which has lasted more than 30 years, the property has been sympathetically maintained and improved to a high standard with thoughtful additions such as the conservatory overlooking the rear garden and a two-storey extension providing additional accommodation with potential to create a self-contained annexe. With a detached single garage and a large south-facing rear garden, this delightful, well rounded property has much to offer and would suit a broad variety of lifestyles including growing or multi-generation families, those looking to achieve an income stream or working from home and anyone in search of a peaceful yet convenient spot to enjoy spending time outside as well as inside.

Internally the accommodation is spacious and well proportioned with a great degree of flexibility. The front door opens into a wide, welcoming entrance hall from which each of the rooms in the main house can be reached including the kitchen, which is well appointed with modern fitted units and spaces for the usual appliances, an elegant dining room and a comfortable sitting room which in turn leads through double glass doors to the expansive conservatory. Domestically, there is ample storage, including cupboards in the dining room and beneath the stairs which once formed a servant's passageway to the kitchen, and the ground floor of the extended part of the property is arranged as a utility room/second kitchen and adjoining shower room which could be used in connection with the bedroom above (accessed via an independent staircase) as an annexe or holiday let/AirBnB.

From the entrance hall, the main staircase rises to a wide landing from which four bedrooms and the family bathroom can be reached. Three of the bedrooms enjoy generous double proportions, whilst bedroom 4 is a sizeable single which is currently arranged as an excellent study. Along with the principal bedroom, bedroom 4 enjoys a stunning outlook over the rear garden, across part of the town and to the countryside beyond including Eype Down. The family bathroom is very well proportioned and is fitted with a contemporary suite including jacuzzi bath, separate shower with back jets, WC and wash hand basin.

OUTSIDE

The garden at Barn Corner is a further asset to the property's overall charm and considerable appeal. With a sunny, south-facing orientation, a plethora of charming seating areas and well stocked borders with an exciting variety of flora, spending time out of doors here is an absolute joy. Furthermore, there is also a workshop with power and light as well as several sheds throughout the garden. At the front of the house is a private driveway, and a detached single garage and parking area can be found across the private lane offering further parking for additional vehicles..
