Classic detached, seven bedroom Georgian gem with a wealth of accommodation and huge character, within walking distance to Bridport town centre.

The property is a classic Georgian vicarage and is all about space, character and position. The property has accommodation arranged over three floors that can be used in any number of ways with all of the rooms being generously proportioned, with the added advantage of being able to separate various parts from each other in order to derive a substantial income if so required. The property oozes character with high ceilings, large casement and mullion windows further enhancing the feeling of light and space throughout, open fireplaces, picture rails, window seats, panelled doors and walls, with much of the flooring laid to stripped plank or stone. This property really has it all and most importantly is not listed.

The house is arranged classically around a central formal dining hall with a magnificent French fireplace to one side and access to many of the principal rooms off. The drawing room and the hallway are the most formal of the rooms, however in addition there is a sitting room/snug, a study and a garden room, with the main daytime hub of the house undoubtedly the kitchen/dining room. This room has a dining area to one end with window seats arranged into a bay window overlooking the front garden and a semi-fitted character kitchen to the other with an island unit to its centre. In addition downstairs there is a dog & boot room, a cloakroom/bathroom and a utility/laundry room. The bedrooms are arranged over three floors above, with the principal bedroom having an ensuite bathroom, two bedrooms sharing a family bathroom, a guest suite with a spiral staircase off the kitchen that can be closed off from the main floor on the first floor with its own ensuite bathroom and two further bedrooms on the second floor served by a shower room. The property has gas fired central heating, is in good decorative order throughout and is organised to be bullet-proof from the rough-and-tumble of family life.

To the front of the property there is an area of parking which gives way to the gardens which face principally to the South and West. A stone pathway leads up to the front door flanked by Box and Lavender planting, with areas of lawn either side. Outside the kitchen/dining room there is an area of stone terrace which makes an ideal entertaining area during the Summer months, while on the West side of the house outside the garden room/orangery there is a second stone terrace that takes in the evening sun. Above this terrace there is a substantial area of lawn edged by mature herbaceous and shrub borders, with to one corner a pergola-topped third terrace that makes a shady spot during the middle of the day. To another corner there is a useful utility area while on the North side of the house there is a large outhouse divided into a workshop, a garden store and an open fronted storage area
