  • Bedrooms: 3
A delightful three bedroom cottage, with a large garden, nestled within a popular village on the outskirts of Bridport.

This property sits in an elevated position on the sunny side of Main Street, the no-through-road which runs the length of the idyllic village of Bothenhampton. This period cottage forms part of picturesque terrace of properties which sit along the raised pavement. The property has been beautifully maintained over the years, boasting many of its original features to include flagstone floors, fireplaces and panelled walls, not to mention the stunning garden hidden behind. The accommodation is spread over two floors and is arranged as follows.

Entrance to the property is gained via a partially glazed door which leads into a tiled hallway which houses the stairs, underneath which there is a handy cupboard, and provides access to the sitting room and the kitchen/dining room.

The sitting room enjoys a front facing aspect and centres around a working log burner with original built in storage cupboards either side of the chimney breast.

The kitchen floor is laid to wonderful flagstones, which continue throughout rest of the ground floor. There is a range of wall and base level, shaker-style units which provide a wealth of storage options. The walls and splashback are beautifully tiled, and a triple sink is fitted along the worksurface, as well as space provided for an oven or range cooker.

The dining end of the room is made particularly cosy by a further log-burning stove with wooden mantle above, and an attractive window seat. Further storage is provided by the large pantry, where the current owner keeps a fridge freezer but could be shelved out to make a most valuable kitchen commodity.

Beyond the kitchen is a lobby area, which leads on through to the conservatory and also the bathroom, and doubles up as a utility space. Located above is a large storage area with two Velux windows meaning it could be used for a multitude of purposes.

At the very rear of the property is a brand new white bathroom suite which has been beautifully fitted. The walls and floors are fully tiled, and the suite comprises a bath, a low level W/C and a ceramic wash hand basin with vanity unit built in below.

From the lobby to the left is a covered lean to conservatory which is a hugely flexible space, the current vendors house a tumble dryer and use it for additional storage

Stairs rise to the first floor where the excellent presentation and charm continues, and the central landing provides access to the three bedrooms. All three of the bedrooms are of generous proportions, with the principal bedroom enjoying built in storage and a front facing aspect, flooded with natural light via a south facing window. There is also a built in shower cubicle. Bedrooms one and two still have their original fireplaces which make for handsome features, and bedrooms two and three enjoy pleasant views across the garden.

One of the main features of this property is the stunning and exceptionally large garden. There are shared steps with the neighbour, which lead up to the lawn. The garden is on a steady incline and is separated into distinct areas, with the majority being laid to lawn, with borders either side which are well stocked with mature planting trees and shrubs. Towards the top of the garden the space really opens up, with attractive flower borders and there is a poly tunnel, a large vegetable patch and an impressive pond surrounded by wooden decking. At the top of the garden there are two very large summer houses both with power and lighting and a water supply, making them an ideal prospect for a studio or home offices. There is another decked area and trees making it a beautiful, secluded space whilst still being in very close proximity to Bridport and from here there are wonderful views over Bothenhampton and the hills beyond.

Parking is on street and is first come first served.
