This property presents a rare opportunity to acquire a delightful Grade II Listed character cottage, within a popular location in the heart of Bridport Town. Bedford Place is an offshoot of arguably one of the town’s most attractive roads, a stone's throw from all of the shops and eateries it has to offer, whilst being a quiet and secluded spot. The cottage forms part of a delightful terrace of cottages and is immaculately presented throughout, with rendered, painted front elevations and stone rear elevations under a slate roof.
The colourful front door leads into the entrance hall which houses the stairs and provides access to all principal ground floor rooms. The sitting room is of generous proportions, spanning the entire depth of the property and is flooded with natural light via front and rear aspect windows.
One end of the sitting room would make a great space for dining, being adjacent to the kitchen which is well appointed with a range of wall and base level units.
There is an integral electric oven with four ring hob and extractor hood over and spaces for below counter appliances. A door leads from here out into the courtyard abutting the rear of the cottage.
The immaculate presentation and character features continue to the first floor where there are two bedrooms and an additional third room which would make an ideal study or nursery. In here there is also a cupboard over the stairs which houses the electric immersion heater.
The principal bedroom enjoys a front aspect, across the Bridport roofscape and towards the hills beyond. Although the cottage has undergone an extensive programme of refurbishment, it still retains many of its character features such as original wooden doors and deep windowsills. Bedroom two is also a good sized double and overlooks the garden at the rear.
The bathroom has tiled walls and floor and is beautifully fitted with a stylish white suite, comprising a low-level W/C, a sink with built in storage below, a bath with a rainfall showerhead fitted above and a heated towel rail.
All of the garden sits to the rear of the property and is accessed via a door leading from the kitchen into a courtyard which is bordered by an attractive stone wall. A set of steps lead up to the main body of the garden which is predominantly laid to lawn and bordered by mature shrubs and hedges. There is a large wood store to one end and the garden is fully enclosed. A side gate provides separate access to the garden.
Please note that there is a right of way across the rear of the property in favour of the two attached cottages to be used should there by an emergency.
