A very attractive and spacious individual detached stone house with large beautiful gardens occupying a peaceful village setting. Council Tax Band F, EPC D , Freehold.


Montana is an attractive, and deceptively spacious, individual detached house, understood to have been traditionally built in the 1970s with later additions, having natural stone-faced elevations. It occupies an elevated position and enjoys lovely views over the village and the surrounding rolling West Dorset countryside.

Within the last 20 years or so, the property has been extended and upgraded to a very high standard. The impressive features include oil-fired central heating with recently upgraded boiler and hot water pressurized system, uPVC sealed unit windows/doors, well equipped kitchen with beech fronted units, Neff eye-level electric oven, Hotpoint electric ceramic hob and plumbing for dishwasher, upgraded en-suite shower room with walk-in shower with mains shower, wood burner to the living room and extensive storage/wardrobe facilities.

The well presented accommodation is both extensive and spacious, enjoying a south-facing rear aspect. There is potential to create an annexe.

The beautiful gardens are a further big selling feature, being attractively landscaped and very well stocked.



Montana is set well back from the village lane and approached over a tarmac driveway (shared by the two neighbouring properties) leading to parking and integral double garage, with remote controlled (upgraded) up and over door.

Generous area of lawned garden to the front together with flower beds and side pedestrian access with wide brick paved path. The main gardens lie to the rear and enjoy a sunny aspect, being attractively landscaped and well stocked. Adjoining the house is a large paved terrace and there is a further paved terrace enjoying the evening light. The gardens have been carefully planned and thought out, featuring extensive areas of lawn together with flower and herbaceous borders, small ornamental pond and vegetable/fruit cage, good range of outbuildings workshop/store (power), shed, greenhouse and lean-to greenhouse.


Montana is pleasantly located in the small and peaceful village of Askerswell, lying in the Asker Valley and surrounded by beautiful West Dorset countryside. The village comprises, in the main, period cottages and houses and the River Asker runs through the centre. There is a parish church, village hall and public house located on the doorstep. The immediate locality is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and the well known viewpoint of Eggardon Hill is close by. The stunning World Heritage coastline is within about 4 miles, with bathing beaches at Burton Bradstock and West Bay.

The Georgian market town of Bridport offers an excellent range of shopping, business and cultural facilities, whilst Dorchester is also within easy reach with mainline rail services to London Waterloo.
