Well Cottage is a fantastic rural home with much to offer a broad range of discerning buyers. Located in a stunning rural position just a few miles from Bridport and the Jurassic Coast, this once unassuming Arts and Crafts-style house has been sympathetically rejuvenated, extended and improved inside and out under the current ownership to create what must be one of the finest homes in the locality. In addition to the great care and attention which has clearly been taken to enhance the fabric of the building and enlarge the accommodation, fixtures and fittings have been thoughtfully selected throughout to create the perfect blend of classical country house qualities, comfortable convenience and fresh, modern styling. The property boasts glorious views over the surrounding countryside and hills, and is filled with a wealth of natural light owing to excellent features such as the roof lantern and bi-folding doors in the kitchen/family room and dual or triple aspects in many rooms which also allow the views to be enjoyed at every opportunity.

Internally, the accommodation is beautifully proportioned with a sociable emphasis, particularly on the ground floor which includes an expansive kitchen/dining/family room, a charming sitting room, a dual aspect additional reception room or double bedroom, a utility/boot room, a shower room and a cloakroom. Upstairs, there are a further 3 bedrooms and two bathrooms, one of which is attached to the principal bedroom in a Jack-and-Jill arrangement.

As a result of the extensive improvements carried out, numerous superb features can be found throughout, with nearly every room containing an exciting surprise. The exhaustive list is seemingly endless but amongst those of particular note is the stunning kitchen with part-quartz and part-solid oak worktops, Everhot electric range cooker and integrated appliances. Solid oak flooring can be found throughout much of the ground floor, whilst the original wood block flooring can still be seen in the sitting room, where it is complemented by a double-fronted wood burner. The cloakroom, bath- and shower rooms and utility room have all been refurbished with quality fittings, whilst less visible improvements have included a new central heating system, re-wiring and re-plumbing.


Well Cottage stands centrally in attractively landscaped, secluded and well stocked gardens which face principally east, south and west and amount to approximately 0.6 of an acre. The bi-folding doors from the kitchen open onto a paved sun terrace which, with the backdrop of the far-reaching country views and rolling hills, is a fantastic setting for al fresco dining, relaxing and entertaining, whilst those with green fingers will greatly appreciate the broad variety of established flora.

From the public lane, a gate leads onto the driveway which offers parking for numerous cars and culminates in a large car port adjacent to the house. There is also a detached garage/store at the entrance to the driveway and a very useful timber store/workshop with great potential for use as a home office or studio, or for conversion to an annexe, subject to any necessary consents.


The property is located in a rural position close to Chideock which is a charming village within the West Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with good access to the World Heritage site Jurassic Coastline at Seatown. There are a number of facilities within the village including two pubs, a shop/post office, churches and village hall, and spectacular cliff, country and coastal walks can be enjoyed in the area. Lyme Regis and Bridport are both nearby, with plenty of arts, crafts and cultural events being held all year round.
