  • Bedrooms: 3
A much improved, individual detached bungalow with sea views, located within one of West Dorset's most sought-after coastal locations. 3 bedrooms (1 ensuite), open-plan sitting/dining room/kitchen. Set in a generous plot of 0.2 of an acre. EPC Band E.

THE PROPERTY

Cranford is a delightful detached bungalow which occupies an elevated position just a short distance from the beach within the popular and highly desirable coastal village of West Bexington and therefore enjoys stunning sea views. Under the current family ownership, which began in 2006, the property has been greatly improved including a thoughtful extension and internal refurbishment, all carried out to an exacting standard. The result is a spacious and beautifully presented coastalhome which takes full advantage of the south-facing aspect and impressive vista to the front.

Amongst the most significant of the improvements has been the reconfiguration of the living areas to create a fantastic open-plan kitchen, living and dining room with glass doors opening to the front terrace. With a fitted kitchen of contemporary units with comprehensive appliances and an adjoining laundry/utility area, this room is ideally suited to a sociable modern lifestyle. From the utility area a pedestrian door leads into the garage which is currently appointed as a store room but offers great scope for further improvement or conversion into additional accommodation, subject to any necessary consents being achieved.

The three generous bedrooms are set across the hallway from the living room, giving a good sense of separation, including the expansive principal bedroom which benefits from dual aspect windows with sea views and a well appointed ensuite shower room. There is also a stylishly fitted family bathroom with a contemporary suite including corner shower, WC and wash hand basin alongside complementary tiles.

OUTSIDE

Cranford sits centrally within a generous plot amounting to just over 0.2 of an acre. The property is well set back from the public road, owing to the long driveway with runs alongside a sweep of established lawn to the front aspect. A delightful paved sun terrace with clear glass balustrades adjoins the property, providing the perfect setting for al fresco dining, entertaining or relaxing with the backdrop of the far-reaching sea views.

Behind the property is a well proportioned rear garden which backs on to fields and, being accessed via a short slight of steps from the back door, also enjoys the fantastic sea vista. Primarily laid to lawn with established flower and shrub borders, this is another wonderful place to spend time out of doors.

SITUATION

The property is situated just a short walk from the beach and sea within West Bexington which rates highly amongst the many desirable villages along the Jurassic Coast, which is designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Amenities within the village include a choice of restaurants and pubs, including the highly regarded Club House, and a farm shop located a short distance from the property. Slightly further afield, the popular market town of Bridport is easily accessible, where there are a broad range of shopping, leisure and cultural facilities to suit many interests as well as excellent everyday healthcare amenities. The West Dorset area as a whole is designated one of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and there are many wonderful walking opportunities from the doorstep of Cranford, including along the South West Coast Path.
