The house offers a number of character features typical of its age and type including bay windows, high ceilings, deep skirting boards and fireplaces.

It enjoys probably some of the best coastal views in Burton Bradstock.

The house is set well back and elevated being approached over a long gravelled driveway with turning and parking area. As stated before, there is excellent scope for garaging.

The extensive and beautiful gardens provide a delightful setting for the property and are a further big selling point.

There are large front gardens down to lawn with hedged boundaries. The rear garden is elevated and attractively set out with extensive areas of lawn interspersed with a whole range of mature trees and shrubs together with a water feature incorporating a waterfall and many delightful sitting out areas, taking advantage of the wonderful views.

Anchor House occupies a lovely elevated setting with far reaching village, country and sea views. Burton Bradstock lies on the coast and is considered to be one of the most sought after and attractive villages in West Dorset. It is a conservation village and the centre consists of largely stone and thatched cottages for which the area is particularly well known. The excellent local amenities include a shop/garage, post office, library, public houses, church, village hall and primary school. There is also the very popular Hive Beach which forms part of the stunning Jurassic Coast. The immediate locality is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and much of the coastline is either owned or controlled by the National Trust. There are nearby footpaths giving easy access to open countryside, down to the beach and clifftops. The thriving historic town of Bridport and the harbour coastal resort of West Bay with its 18-hole golf course are both within easy reach and the stunning coastal road is also nearby giving easy access to the larger towns of Dorchester and Weymouth, both with mainline rail services to London.
