34 Folly Mill Lodge is a delightful end-of-terrace modern cottage which forms part of a popular development for residents aged 60 or over (please see agents' note below), located in a tucked-away position at the heart of Bridport town centre. One of only three self-contained houses on the development, this well-appointed home offers a rare blend of independent yet supported living with a private parking space, a walled garden and every modern convenience catered for within.

The independent front door to the property opens into a wide, welcoming entrance hall from which the floor rooms can all be accessed including a spacious sitting room with double doors leading directly to the garden. There is also a sociable kitchen/dining room with fitted units, integrated hob, fridge and eye-level oven and spaces for a washing machine and under-counter freezer, and the ground floor cloakroom can also be reached from the entrance hall. A wide, straight staircase rises to the first floor where there are two double bedrooms, one of which benefits from an ensuite shower room and built-in wardrobes. Also on the first floor is the main bathroom which is fitted with a modern suite comprising bath with shower over, WC and wash hand basin. A further feature of this room is the Velux window which ensures a wealth of natural light.


An enormous asset to the property is the charming rear garden which is arranged as a walled courtyard. Designed to be easily managed, this superb space is primarily laid to paving, decking and gravel, making this an inviting setting for spending time outside without the need for constant maintenance. The property further benefits from a private, allocated parking space which is located adjacent to the cottage and therefore within easy reach of both the front door and the side gate to the garden.


Leasehold. The remainder of a 125 year lease from 2002. Service charge £1824 per year. Ground rent £425 per year.


This property is subject to an age restriction of 60 years+, although in the case of couples cohabiting one resident may be aged 55+ providing the other is aged 60 or over.
