Saxlingham House is an exceptionally spacious and attractive 1930's property that has been lovingly restored and updated by the current owners to offer a great deal of flexibility and an excellent level of finish throughout. The property has much charm and character and it benefits from high ceilings and good light throughout which has been made the most of.

The property has been renovated with an excellent level of skill and attention to detail, including a biomass boiler located at the side of the house. The renovations include new bathrooms, new kitchen and the opening up of the kitchen/breakfast room to accommodate modern living. From the kitchen, a separate hallway leads to the front and back of the property, and also gives access to the attached annexe, giving it the flexibility to have separate access or to be used within the main dwelling. This annexe is presented in excellent order and has an open planned living space with a small kitchenette area to the side, complete with built in appliances including washing machine, fridge and cooker. A well appointed shower room sits behind as well as two bedrooms (one double with built in storage). The annexe has plenty of further scope and could be used for many different income streams including holiday letting, shorthold tenancy, or multi-generational living (subject to any relevant consents).

Upstairs, the bedrooms are all of very generous double proportions, having built in storage, and the master having an en-suite shower room. Most bedrooms enjoy excellent views to the front, over surrounding hills and countryside at the front, and uninterrupted views to Colmer's Hill, taking in the gardens and grounds at the rear.


The property is also presented in excellent order externally and has an abundance of parking to the front for several vehicles and boasts a turning area. The front garden is yet to be delineated where there will be a driveway to the plot at the rear of the house which will run through the existing double garage, which will be removed. There is however, plenty of parking which belongs to the house.

To the rear of the home, there is further gardens and grounds which are very mature and substantial, having plenty of areas of interest. The wood pellet boiler is housed in an attractive shed/outbuilding. There are areas from which to enjoy the sun throughout the day and views to Colmer's Hill can be appreciated. The lawn and confines are delineated by a new and attractive fence.


Saxlingham House is situated on the western fringes of Bridport, backing onto open countryside with a small campsite consisting of 6 caravans nearby offering spectacular views to Colmer's Hill and across the countryside. The pretty village of Symondsbury is within about 20 minutes' walk from Bridport where there is a pub and local community including a popular village school, church and the lovely Manor Barn where there are shops, amenities and a lovely café. The town centre can also be reached by a level stroll from the property, and there is a bus stop a short distance away, connecting to routes around Bridport as well as Lyme Regis, Dorchester and surrounding villages. Within the town there is a broad variety of shopping, leisure and cultural amenities to suit many tastes including a twice weekly street market, Arts Centre, leisure centre and a thriving high street of independent and national retailers, including a Waitrose supermarket, with schools for children of all ages within the town.
