A substantial, immaculately presented Georgian-style home in a sought-after residential area within walking distance to Bridport town. EPC Band C.

THE PROPERTY

This lovingly improved home presents as an excellent and well considered opportunity for a new purchaser. The house sits in an enviable position within the development along Lodge Lane with easy access to the town whilst being far away from the road to not be burdened by road noise. Number twelve benefits from a larger than average plot that is of much benefit and makes the house and grounds more well-balanced than many similar Fry s homes in the development and across the area.

The accommodation currently comprises: entrance hall with tiled flooring and newly fitted downstairs cloakroom. Dual aspect sitting room with feature fireplace and French doors to the garden, a substantial newly fitted kitchen breakfast room with French doors to the dining room where there is further opportunity to create a large open plan kitchen diner. This gives the property at present the best of both worlds in being able to separate and divide the two spaces to suit a purchaser needs. The kitchen offers a contemporary feel and leads through into a utility which continues the themes of the kitchen.

The first floor holds three bedrooms, the master bedroom having a substantial en-suite and built in wardrobes. Two further bedrooms are of generous proportions and have the ability to create built in storage due to their configuration. These bedrooms enjoy views across the development with glimpses of countryside and hills towards Chideock, the rear room having views across the attractive and open rear garden. The top floor holds two further bedrooms, a sizable double and an exceptionally large bedroom which enjoys rear and front aspects, having plenty of space for storage. This floor also has a larger than average bathroom with a bath and shower, an airing cupboard with pressurised hot water tank and access to the loft along with a very useful L-Shaped built in storage cupboard which has easy access.

The whole property is presented in immaculate order throughout and has been lovingly tendered to over the years with many cosmetic and practical benefits which include a new boiler, radiators, door handles, furniture for the windows along with new bathrooms, kitchen and utility and a well known, local company Heavers, Bridport fitted new front door, back door and French doors and hinges on the windows. There is also a newly updated intruder alarm and smoke detectors. Low energy spotlights in kitchen and all bathrooms and low energy strip lights in garage are also a feature.

OUTSIDE

Outside the property is approached via a small continued area of garden where the exterior of the property has been recently repainted including the railing. This makes for an attractive approach. To the rear of the property, the garden is predominantly laid to grass with a small patio area directly to the rear of the house. The lawn is level and there are beds of flowers and shrubs to the rear of the plot which form an attractive refuge for birds. The garden, as previously mentioned, is above average size for the development and could allow the property to be further extended without issue (STP). Equally, the large garden would suit a family or keen gardening enthusiasts as there is plenty of further opportunity and scope. A path to the side of the garden leads to the double garage, which is in immaculate order and offers easy access and parking for two vehicles. There is further communal parking further up Lodge Lane for guests and ample on road parking also.
