THE PROPERTY

4 Valley Road is a superb detached home located in a popular residential position on the edge of Bridport and therefore within easy reach of town centre amenities, the sea at West Bay and the glorious West Dorset countryside. The property was built on the site of a former orchard some 50 years ago and has been beautifully cared for under the same ownership ever since with sympathetic improvements carried out over the years including thoughtful extensions to the side and rear, upgrading of the windows and central heating system and conversion of the former garage to provide workshop and studio facilities. Now available on the open market for the first time, the property represents an excitingly rare opportunity for a new owner to acquire an unspoilt family home with scope for further personalisation, if desired.

Owing to the somewhat elevated position, set back from the road and screened from passers-by, the property enjoys stunning, far-reaching views across Bridport town to the countryside beyond, a feature which can be fully appreciated at every opportunity throughout. On the ground floor, the spacious and free-flowing accommodation includes a large sitting room with original hardwood flooring and open fireplace, an adjoining dining area, a charming garden/sun room, a kitchen/breakfast room with supporting utility room, a useful study and a cloakroom.

Upstairs there are four well proportioned bedrooms, three of which are of double proportions and each benefitting from built in storage. Furthermore, the principal bedroom benefits from a built in shower, basin and ensuite cloakroom as well as access to a large private balcony overlooking the rear garden.

OUTSIDE

4 Valley Road enjoys delightful, established gardens to the front, side and rear. Being built on the site of a former orchard, two ancient apple trees take pride of place within the gardens, including a Beauty of Bath variety in the rear garden, alongside a host of other exciting flora such as palm trees. Both the front and south-facing rear gardens are primarily laid to lawn, interspersed with flower and shrub borders, whilst to the side is an arbour-covered terrace and a secret lawn. Best placed to enjoy the views, a pagoda can be found in the furthermost corner.

Parking is well provided for here with a gravelled driveway and car port offering parking for several vehicles. The former double garage has been converted to great effect into a workshop with adjoining dark room and studio, providing an excellent set-up for those working from home or requiring a hobby space outside the body of the house. Furthermore, there is a large garden store/potting shed which can be access both from the car port and from the side garden.

SITUATION

Valley Road is one of Bridport's most sought-after locations owing to its close proximity to the town centre, the stunning Jurassic Coast at West Bay and open countryside alike with many footpaths nearby including one offering a nearly entirely off-road route to West Bay. Bridport's vibrant town centre has an exciting range of shopping, leisure and cultural experiences to suit all tastes including a twice-weekly street market, Arts Centre and leisure centre with swimming pool. There are schools for children of all ages within the town, and further afield the County Town of Dorchester and the famous regency resort of Lyme Regis are within easy reach . The area as a whole is designated one of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site is just 1 mile from Bridport at West Bay
