THE PROPERTY

28 Bedford Place is a charming semi-detached period cottage/town house with the benefit of off-road parking and a large rear garden in a popular, peaceful and highly convenient location within just a few minutes' walking distance from Bridport town centre. The property is estimated to date back over 200 years and is Listed Grade II of Architectural or Historic Importance. It has classic colourwash rendered and brick elevations. From its elevated position, long range views are enjoyed over the town, taking in the Town Hall and Church to the sea beyond at West Bay.

Under the current ownership for some 40 years, it has been a well loved and well cared for home although there is scope for further improvement.

The accommodation is well presented and good sized with a number of character features typical of it's period including a fanlight over the front door, sash and small paned windows, panelled doors and high ceilings, gas fired central heating is installed with a fairly modern boiler together with part UPVC sealed unit windows and part secondary double glazing.

The accommodation comprises: Ground floor- a long reception hall, living room with brick open fireplace, separate dining room, kitchen/breakfast room with solid oak fronted units, electric eye-level oven and electric hob, rear hall, utility and cloak room. First floor- A very large principal bedroom enjoying the town views and sea glimpses, two further bedrooms and a fairly modern wet room which is fully tiled and has a Mira electric shower.

OUTSIDE

There is the immense benefit of off-road parking for one car (fairly rare in the town centre for properties of this type).

There is a small and well stocked sunny front garden. The rear garden is a big feature with a side walled courtyard, two brick and slate stores leading to a delightful part walled garden with lawn and well-stocked borders including roses and beyond, a greenhouse and former very productive vegetable garden.

The cottage has a pedestrian right of way over the neighbouring property onto a small side lane (Bedford Terrace).

SITUATION

Bedford Place is one of Bridport's most sought after addresses owing to it's position within easy reach of the town centre. It is just a short walk down Barrack Street or through Millennium Gardens and Downes Street into East Street and the main centre. Millennium Walk is also very nearby- a delightful foot path over Coneygar Hill. Bridport is a thriving and historic market town well known for it's wide streets. There is an excellent range of shopping, business and leisure facilities including restaurants, hotels, a cinema, arts centre, museum, farmer's and vintage markets. The town is well served by Primary Schools and a Secondary School. West Bay with its bathing beaches and access to the World Heritage Jurassic Coast is only a few miles to the south. The large centres of Dorchester, Yeovil and Weymouth are all within easy reach with mainline rail services to London.
