A three bedroom ground floor apartment on the edge of Bridport with a wonderful enclosed garden and off road parking.
This comfortable apartment is found on the edge of Bridport within close proximity to both the town’s amenities and lovely countryside walks. With various period features this apartment offers good size accommodation and plentiful natural light. A real feature of the property is its enclosed rear garden which has been beautifully maintained by the current owner.
To the front of the property is an enclosed courtyard with space to park a car, typically used for visitors, a garden shed and space for a picnic table and various potted plants.

There is plenty of space for freestanding white goods and a cooker and in addition there is a large integrated pantry cupboard. Off the kitchen is bedroom three, this room could be arranged in many different ways having previously been used as a dining room but would also make a perfect home office.
The bathroom is a good size with a pale suite comprising W/C, pedestal hand wash basin and bath with shower over. There is a large airing cupboard between the bathroom and kitchen.
The sitting room is at the back of the apartment with a dual aspect overlooking the courtyard to the front and garden to the rear.
