THE PROPERTY

A beautifully converted detached character stone house adjoining the mill pond and enjoying far reaching countryside views. THE PROPERTY Tucked away in this wonderful historic village a mile or so from the most sought after and award winning market town of Bridport, first glimpses of Mill Cottage are impressive with its very pretty faade constructed of attractive local stone under a pretty tiled roof. Forming part of a well-known ropemakers village, Mill Cottage is a most attractive detached property which was very cleverly converted in 2007, recently refurbished and redecorated with the addition of new double-glazed windows and doors in 2019 and more recently a new ensuite shower. It enjoys a fantastic waterside location adjoining a most picturesque mill pond which brings a sense of uniqueness and tranquillity to the property.. On first entering the property there is a real sense of charm, space and light with a large magnificent sitting room with exposed beams and beautiful Travertine flooring. There is plenty of room for a dining room table to one end and a large log burning stove. There are also double doors leading out to the garden and views over the weir which is a lovely place to sit in the mornings. On this floor is also a cloakroom and the most beautiful hand-painted bespoke kitchen with a large picture window overlooking the beautiful garden and double doors giving direct access to the paved terraces, ideal for al fresco dining. Incorporated are a number of very attractive wall and base units including an 8 ring gas hob and oven, and plenty of room for a kitchen/dining table. There are also very attractive solid maple work surfaces and a ceramic Belfast sink. The kitchen is quite simply 'as good as it gets'. The accommodation is arranged over three floors, with the spacious and airy principal bedroom on the first floor with an en suite bath/shower room and dressing room, and with double doors opening onto a small enclosed balcony overlooking the weir, a perfect place to enjoy a morning cup of coffee. It also has solid oak flooring, exposed beams and fitted wardrobes and cupboards. On the second floor there are three bedrooms with high ceilings, the largest with lovely views over the weir and open countryside and a family bathroom, the perfect accommodation for guests and/or children. To the front of the property is an allocated parking space and directly adjoining is a driveway/parking. The garden is an absolute delight, private and well-screened, and has been very lovingly nurtured and looked after over the years. It boasts well stocked islands and borders, paved terracing and a wonderful range of flowers, shrubs and fruit trees including pear, fig, apple and plum. There is also a lower terrace and steps leading down to the mill pond. All in all this would make a wonderful primary or secondary home in an idyllic yet very convenient location. LOCATION Mill Cottage lies in a delightful waterside setting at the edge of the charming Pymore village surrounded by beautiful open countryside. Pymore was historically a rope making village and has been tastefully converted and transformed over the years with mixed construction that blends the new with the old, with extensive attractive well-maintained landscaping, bridle paths and beautiful walks nearby along the Brit valley. Pymore boasts a popular local pub, the Pymore Inn, with a large beer garden and the village itself has a real sense of community. There are several farm shops offering local produce nearby. The property is within level walking distance of Bridport, around 1 mile, along the purpose built footpath. Bridport is a most attractive Georgian town that retains an excellent number of independent shops and restaurants and a thriving street market on Saturdays and Wednesdays, along with a growing vintage quarter. A choice of supermarkets is available in or around the town including Waitrose and Morrison's. there is a cottage hospital, a large medical centre, a popular leisure centre, a successful Arts Centre and a number of independent festivals involving the arts are held throughout the year.
