This is a very impressive and substantial character house offering extensive accommodation, lovely town and country views, together with the benefit of private off-road parking (rarely available in the town centre). It is an individual Victorian house understood to have been built in the late 1800's with brick elevations under a slate roof. The accommodation is extensive, being arranged over 4 floors and enjoys fantastic long range views over the town and surrounding countryside, including the well-known viewpoints of Allington and Coneygar Hills.
There are many classic features typical of its age and type including a mosaic tiled floor, period decorative timber and cast iron fireplaces, deep skirting boards, high ceilings, picture rails, stripped pine doors, exposed floor boards, exposed colour washed brick and the original gas lamp points. In the last 10 years or so a whole number of improvements have been carried out and a particular feature is the contemporary style large dining/family/garden room with vaulted ceiling, Velux windows and solid oak windows/doors. The many excellent features includes gas fired central heating (boiler recently replaced), replacement UPVC sealed unit windows, security alarm system, recently fitted contemporary kitchen with solid oak worktops (stainless steel Rangemaster and matching cooker hood available by separate negotiation) and attractive modern bathroom/shower room fittings.
There is also the immense benefit of private off road parking to the front and a good sized, west facing, long rear garden enjoying distant views. The availability of this type of Victorian house, with parking, is very rare in Bridport.OUTSIDE
