Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 4
A spacious and individual four bedroom detached house on the outskirts of the town with a garage, a wooden outbuilding and beautifully planted gardens.

Howard Close lies on the eastern side of Bridport, within easy access of the town's amenities and close to some pleasant countryside walks. The house sits in a peaceful setting within a modern development believed to have been built in 2000. The property has during the current ownership, undergone a program of reconfiguration and redecoration to create some open-plan living accommodation that takes full advantage of its position, with beautiful countryside views to the rear.

On the ground floor an entrance hallway gives way to the majority of the living accommodation. The living room centres around a substantial wood burning stove and is fitted with a pair of South facing double doors that lead directly onto the terrace at the rear. There is a second reception room accessed via the living room through French doors which is currently set up as a library. The open plan kitchen/dining room stretches the length of the house and is arranged with a fully fitted contemporary kitchen to one end and a dining area to the other. Fitted appliances in the kitchen include a double oven with separate five ring gas hob and a washing machine. Double doors to one end of the room give continuity out onto a decked covered terrace providing an additional dining area in the summer months. To the other end of the house is a conservatory making an ideal space for coats and boots which provides an additional access out into the garden.

Upstairs are four double bedrooms accessed via a spacious landing. The main bedroom is situated at the back of the house and has an en-suite shower room, and some pleasant views to open countryside. The remaining three bedrooms are served by a bathroom which is currently fitted with a roll top bath with shower over.
