Folly Mill Lodge, South Street, Bridport, Dorset, DT6 3QS


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 2
Elegant spacious two bedroom retirement apartment in the centre of Bridport town, within walking distance of all the town's amenities.

This flat at Folly Mill Lodge is part of a select development believed to have been built at the start of the 21st Century and has brick and rendered elevations under a slate roof. This elegant first floor flat is, in our opinion, one of the best in this over 55s development. Not only is it the most spacious of all the apartments within the building, it also has a lovely South and West facing aspect taking in the sun, the sights and sounds of the vibrant rope making town of Bridport on a daily basis. In addition the apartment is situated to the very centre of Bridport town within 100 m of Bucky Doo Square and within walking distance of all the town's shops, public houses and restaurants. In short this is a rare opportunity not to be missed.

The apartment is on the first floor of the building accessed by either a staircase or a lift, with a phone entry security system. The scene is set on entering the apartment with a large spacious hallway off which the accommodation is accessed. The living room and the main bedroom have the best of the views, with the living room currently arranged with the sitting area to the front of the building giving way to a dining area to the centre, behind which there is a fitted kitchen. The kitchen is organised with a comprehensive range of floor and wall mounted units and cupboards and integral appliances that include a ceramic hob, an electric oven, a fridge and a freezer. The principal bedroom has a sleeping area to one end and a dressing area to the other, while the second bedroom unusually is a good sized double. Both bedrooms are served by a contemporary shower room with a double sized shower. The property is in excellent decorative order and has electric heating. Within the development there is a communal lounge complete with kitchen, a laundry room and a guest suite for visiting relatives. There is a 24hr lifeline system and a warden on site on weekday mornings. The development is available to those over the age of 55.

Outside there is a communal landscaped terrace area and side gate to the road. There are also limited parking spaces, subject to availability and a communal bin store.
