Kingfisher House is an attractive and spacious family home which enjoys an enviable position at the heart of Pymore: one of the most sought-after villages within easy striking distance of Bridport Town centre. Along with many of the surrounding buildings, the property dates back to the early 2000s when it was built as part of the Pymore Village regeneration, which is explained in more detail below, and as such benefits from a variety of traditional-style features, blended seamlessly with every modern convenience. Care has also been taken during the current and previous ownerships to enhance and improve elements of the property, including a sizeable extension to the side and as a result offers flexible and well proportioned accommodation with stylish fixtures and fittings, complemented by an appealing scheme of decoration throughout.

The front door opens into a wide, welcoming entrance hall from which three of the principal ground floor rooms can be reached, including the charming and comfortable sitting room, the light and airy dining room and the kitchen/breakfast room, which features classically stylish fitted units with a black granite work surface, island with breakfast bar, range-style cooker and integrated appliances. The kitchen is supported by an adjoining utility room, where there is plumbing for laundry facilities, and a ground floor cloakroom, whilst the sitting room, which features a brick fireplace with woodburner and glass sliding doors opening to the garden, leads through into the family room. With a separate staircase leading to bedroom 5 and an independent door to outside, the family room is where the flexibility of the accommodation is most evident; currently used as a superb additional reception room, this set up could also lend itself well to use as a guest suite or semi-independent annexe.

The main staircase from the entrance hall leads to the rest of the first floor accommodation which comprises 4 well proportioned bedrooms, 3 of generous double proportions, and a family bathroom. Of particular note is the principal bedroom which enjoys an ensuite bathroom with contemporary fittings and ample built-in wardrobes. The family bathroom is similarly fitted with a contemporary white suite including bath with shower over, WC and wash hand basin.


A further benefit of Kingfisher House is the easily managed garden which is primarily arranged to the rear as a landscaped rear garden, designed to be enjoyed without the need for ongoing maintenance. Comprising areas of paved terrace, sun deck and gravel bordered by an array of established shrubs, this is a superb setting for spending time out of doors and, with direct access to both the sitting room and the family room, offers a highly desirable indoor/outdoor lifestyle when weather allows. A driveway to the side of the property offers off road parking for 2 vehicles.


Pymore is a unique former rope makers' village which is set on the River Brit and dates back to 14th century. By the 1700s, it had gained a reputation for ropemaking and its population depended for their livelihoods on rope and twine making at the village mill or growing flax and hemp in nearby fields. Rope walks were set up near the mill pond and outbuildings, cottages, a dairy and a brewery were built. A school was opened in 1870 as well as a girls' hostel. However the advent of man-made fibres forced the ropery to close in 1955, after which the village was deserted and the buildings became derelict until the village was regenerated in the early 2000s. The original properties were restored and new homes were built in a sympathetic local style. The result is a unique riverside village environment within very easy reach of Bridport town centre and a broad range of amenities.
