THE PROPERTY

A fantastic and incredibly spacious family home with huge potential to upgrade, with a sizeable garden. THE PROPERTY Dating back to the mid-1890s and constructed of red brick under a slate roof with an attractive classic cast iron Victorian portico, first glimpses of this wonderful property are most impressive. It is in a very convenient situation, a short walk from the centre of the most popular market town of Bridport and local primary and secondary schools. On first entering the property there is a sense of charm and space with very well-presented accommodation, yet totally untainted by inappropriate modernisation. This property offers any family a huge potential to create the most amazing family home with very flexible accommodation. A large hallway immediately greets you with magnificent tiled flooring typical of the Victorian era. There are many rooms in the house worth a special mention, including the beautifully proportioned sitting room with high ceilings, a central marble fireplace, and double doors leading out to the paved terrace, ideal for al fresco dining. The dining room, which could also be put to a number of other uses, boasts similar proportions with large windows attracting lots of natural light. On the ground floor is also a study and cloakroom. The principal bedrooms are situated on the first floor with four magnificent bedrooms, three of which have views over the delightful garden and the countryside surrounding Bridport. They also have pretty Victorian fireplaces and high ceilings. On this floor is also a family bathroom. The added surprise is the incredibly good sized and attractive garden with a paved area and large lawned area with well stocked borders, a utopia for children and animals. There is also a greenhouse, several useful outbuildings and a double garage. All in all, this is a wonderful family home offering huge potential to extend and improve, in a very convenient and popular location. LOCATION 197 St. Andrews Road is situated within easy walking distance of the bustling market town of Bridport, local primary and secondary schools, West Bay and the famous Jurassic Coastline, a World Heritage site. 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. Much of the countryside is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty where strict planning controls apply to preserve its special character. West Bay is a popular small seaside resort with harbour, shops, restaurants and attractive beach. The Dorset coast is now recognised as a World Heritage Site. A further wider range of amenities, including a mainline railway station to London Waterloo can be found at the County Town of Dorchester, or Crewkerne.
