  • Bedrooms: 3
A detached chalet style property with scope for improvement, set in large gardens with far-reaching views. Spacious, versatile accommodation including 3/4 bedrooms. 2 garages and ample parking. No forward chain. EPC Band F.


Underhill is a substantial detached chalet-style property which enjoys a central position within the picturesque village of Chideock and is set more than 80ft back from the road on a large plot amounting to approximately 0.4 of an acre. Owing to its position within the village, lovely, far-reaching views can be enjoyed from the property, particularly from the first floor, and encompass the hills surrounding Chideock with a distant glimpse of the sea at Seatown. Under the current family ownership, which has lasted more than 40 years, the property has been a much-loved home yet it is now requiring major improvement to ensure that the property can continue to cater to the needs of the busy modern family.

Internally the accommodation is spacious and well proportioned with a great degree of flexibility to suit a variety of lifestyles. The front door opens into a wide welcoming entrance hall from which each of the ground floor rooms can be accessed including a light and spacious sitting room with a large picture window to the front aspect and French doors to the side, a separate dining room which enjoys a dual aspect and could easily be used as a study or additional bedroom if required, and the kitchen/breakfast room with an adjoining lean-to conservatory/utility room and two walk-in stores . Also on the ground floor is a generous double bedroom with built-in wardrobes as well as a bathroom with separate WC.

From the central hall, stairs rise to the first floor landing which, benefitting from a window to the front aspect and being sufficiently spacious to be used as an additional living space, is arguably the optimum place to enjoy the views to their fullest advantage. The first floor accommodation also includes two further double bedrooms, both with fitted storage, a cloakroom and a study/office, ideal for working from home.


Underhill stands centrally in a generous, established plot amounting to approximately 0.4 of an acre, and is therefore well set back from passers-by. From the public road a tarmac driveway leads to the side of the property and culminates in a parking and turning area for several vehicles which also gives access to a detached pair of garages with twin up-and-over doors, and there is also an additional in-and-out driveway to the front. The gardens are primarily laid to lawn with well stocked borders and, surrounding the property on all sides, provide many opportunities for spending time out of doors with the backdrop of the lovely village and country views. This is particularly the case to the front where the garden has been charmingly landscaped to include a paved sun terrace abutting the property and a large ornamental pond.


The neighbouring property to the rear has Right of Way over the driveway.


The property is situated in the centre of the village and within walking distance of all facilities. Chideock is a delightful and historic village offering excellent amenities including a Post Office/ shop, public houses, parish church and village hall plus regular bus services. The centre is principally made up of period houses and thatched cottages of the type for which the area is well known. The immediate locality is designated as one of Outstanding Natural Beauty and there are numerous walking opportunities right on the doorstep.

The beautiful and stunning Jurassic Coast is only about 1 mile at Seatown with its landmark public house, beach and spectacular cliffs, much of which is owned and controlled by the National Trust. The thriving Georgian market town of Bridport is only about 5 minutes' driving distance, offering more comprehensive facilities and a leisure centre with swimming pool. The famous resort of Lyme Regis is also within only about 15 minutes' drive and Axminster is just beyond with mainline rail services to London.
