Little Orchard is a spacious and unassuming property that boasts excellent proportions and offers a contemporary and light home which has much further potential, also offering planning permission for a Grand Design! Whilst there is planning permission in place, there is an opportunity to develop the property to a lesser degree without carrying out the whole host of works which gives the property even more flexibility.
The entrance porch opens to a sizeable L shaped living area which enjoys high ceilings and lots of natural light. This leads on to a conservatory which overlooks the rear garden and makes the most of the private position, integrating the home with one's surrounds.
The property boasts a handy utility area with a small gardener's cloakroom to the back of the integrated garage. At the front of the property, there is a sizable kitchen which is well appointed and which benefits from a substantial pantry.
Beyond the L shaped living space, a hallway leads on to two double bedrooms, the master being of very generous proportions, having a large dressing area with built in storage that could certainly hold an en-suite (should a purchaser so choose and subject to any necessary consent). There is a separate family bathroom which can accommodate disabled access and the 2nd bedroom is also a decent double, containing built in cupboards and office space.
The plans for the property can be found at Dorset County Council. Reference number WD/D/18/002183. Planning permission runs out at the end of November although subject to negotiation and an arranged start, the planning permission could be there in perpetuity for a new purchaser - please ask the office for further details on this. These plans are for a Grand Design but given the scope, there looks to be flexibility, subject to any consent or amendments, although the property offers comfortable, easy living as is.OUTSIDE
The property sits in a very generous plot, measuring around 0.3 acre which is very deceptive from the first approach off Annings Lane which leads to a generous entrance with parking for several vehicles and the single garage. There is a level lawn here with mature shrubs and plants behind a walled garden which forms an attractive and well considered approach.
There is access around the side of the property to the rear garden which is predominately laid to lawn with several areas of interest with mature beds, shrubs, specimen plants and a vegetable plot to the side. To the rear of the plot there is further parking off Grove Road behind a gated access where there is also a substantial new studio room which would suit those looking for a home office, studio or just an attractive summerhouse. The garden is very generous which also means that any development of the house will be well balanced within the curtilage.SITUATION
Little Orchard enjoys a peaceful position within the favoured village of Burton Bradstock which lies on the coast and is considered to be one of the most attractive and sought-after villages in West Dorset. The village is in a Conservation Area and is particularly well known for its period stone and thatched cottages. There are excellent local amenities including a shop/garage, Post Office, library, public houses, church, village hall and popular primary school. There is an excellent beach which forms part of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site and the area as a whole is designated one of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Virtually on the doorstep there are public footpaths giving easy access to open countryside, riverside walks and to the beach and clifftops beyond.SERVICES
