THE PROPERTY

5 St Hildas is a highly individual property which is located enviably close to Bridport town centre and offers wonderfully spacious, characterful accommodation. The property is arranged over the entire upper two floors of a stunning former Victorian mansion house which is understood to date back to the late 1800s and was converted into 5 unique apartments in 1986. As such, fantastic, far-reaching views can be enjoyed from the property, stretching across Bridport and the surrounding hills to the sea at West Bay. Much of the character of the original building has been successfully preserved including ornate, part arched windows, exposed floorboards and deep skirting boards, now dovetailed with modern yet complementary features such as a fitted kitchen with solid oak worktops and built-in appliances and quality bath- and shower room fittings.

The internal room proportions expected from properties of this age are very much in evidence. From the communal entrance hall and first floor landing, the entry door to number 5 gives access to a private staircase rising to a wide, welcoming reception hall from which each of the primary floor rooms can be accessed. These include a large kitchen/dining room, sitting room and cloakroom alongside two of the bedrooms and the family bathroom. A further staircase rises to the upper floor where the principal bedroom can be found, which benefits from an ensuite shower room and walk-in wardrobe, as well as bedroom 3.

Outside, the property benefits from private courtyard garden which enjoys a south-facing aspect and is partly covered, providing a charming setting for spending time out of doors. There is also a large, personal parking area which is a considerable and rarely-available benefit so close to Bridport town centre.

SITUATION

The property is located in one of Bridport's most sought after positions within level walking distance of the town centre. Bridport has a twice weekly market as well as regular farmers' and monthly vintage markets and offers a range of quirky and artisan local shops. Bridport's mainstream amenities include restaurants, hotels, a cinema, art/leisure centre, supermarkets, a museum, a health centre and a number of excellent primary and secondary schools. West Bay, with its harbour, bathing beaches and access to the World Heritage coast, is only about 2 miles to the south. There is also a golf course. The larger centres of Dorchester, Yeovil and Weymouth are all within easy reach with main line rail services to London.
