8 Green Lane is an impressive, individual detached house enjoying a generous plot of 0.42 of an acre, located within very easy reach of Bridport Town Centre and the Jurassic Coast at West Bay, Dating back to the 1930s, the property exhibits the generously proportioned rooms and high ceilings typical of this period of architecture with several character features including picture rails and panelled internal doors in most rooms as well as a brick fireplace in the play room and a lovely wooden staircase. Under the current ownership for the past 40 years the property has been significantly improved and enlarged including the addition of a large conservatory and creation of a new driveway to the front, whilst also retaining the original rear access. Due to the rear access, there are a wealth of exciting possibilities for improvement within the garden, including scope to create leisure amenities, additional garaging/workshop space or even ancillary accommodation amongst many other potential opportunities, subject to any necessary consents being achieved.
Internally the accommodation is family-orientated with a sociable emphasis. The five reception rooms, which include an expansive yet comfortable sitting room with a raised brick hearth with wood burner; dining room; play room, a well-appointed kitchen/breakfast room and a hardwood conservatory with underfloor heating, are arranged in a smoothly-flowing layout which works very well for entertaining whilst allowing the use and identity of each room to be preserved for everyday family enjoyment. Also on the ground floor is a useful study, providing an excellent space for those working from home which could alternatively provide a superb hobby space or snug if required. The property is well appointed to provide every domestic convenience with a large utility/boot/laundry room and a cloakroom, tiled- or engineered wood flooring throughout the ground floor and a well equipped kitchen of fitted maple-fronted units beneath a granite work surface with integrated appliances.
The charming, original staircase rises to a wide first floor landing from which the five double bedrooms can be accessed, along with two shower rooms, the larger of which also enjoys a separate bath. Each of the bedrooms is light and airy with several enjoying a lovely outlook, either to the front towards Bothen Hill, to the side, looking west over Bridport to the hills beyond or across the expansive rear garden to the rear. Additional, versatile accommodation is provided by the detached outbuilding which, currently comprising a large studio room, cloakroom, kitchenette and single garages, offers great scope for conversion to an annexe, workshop or home office block to suit the needs of the individual purchaser. In its current configuration, this room is ideal as a hobby room, games room or den.OUTSIDE
The property enjoys an enviable position, set well back from passers-by with a parking and turning area to the front providing space for a number of vehicles and giving access to the vehicle doors of the garages. Wrapping around the house, the large, south-westerly facing gardens are primarily laid to lawn with established, well stocked borders, a greenhouse, summer house and several sheds, providing a delightful setting and excellent facilities for spending time out of doors. A further benefit is the vehicular rear access which leads onto a hardstanding at the far end of the garden, providing additional parking or space for a caravan, boat or trailer. It is thought that there are a wealth of opportunities for possible development within the garden, subject to any necessary consents being achieved.SITUATION
