  • Bedrooms: 3
A spacious and newly refurbished character home with off road parking in the centre of Bridport. Generous 1200sqft. Gated off-road parking and courtyard. EPC Band D.


15 Downes Street is a fine example of how a character cottage can be transformed into a beautiful, quality home which further benefits from close proximity to the town centre and off road parking. The property exhibits several character features but is not listed; a factor which has facilitated the renovation project as well as enabled the addition of the usual modern comforts, including a gas fired central heating system. Throughout this programme of improvements, great care has been taken to ensure that works have been carried out with great sympathy to the building's origins, and it is clear to see that stylish, quality fixtures and fittings have been selected to ensure that the new owners of this property can enjoy a sense of comfort and luxury expected from a new build without compromising on the appeal of an older home.

Internally, the accommodation is arranged in a simple, classical layout with two reception rooms, a well proportioned kitchen/breakfast room and a cloakroom on the ground floor and three bedrooms and the family bathroom/shower room upstairs.

The list of works carried out as part of this project is extensive to say the least. In addition to the visible improvements, such as new kitchens and bathrooms, attention has also been paid to elements of the property which are not immediately apparent including new windows, and a new combi boiler has been installed. The property has been re-decorated in a palette of fresh, bright neutrals; the perfect complement to the new carpets which have been laid in many rooms as well as the flagstone floor in the hallway.


The property can be approached through double wrought iron gates which lead into an enclosed, private courtyard area offering off road parking in addition to a sun terrace/patio.


The property is situated in a highly convenient location tucked away from the main thoroughfare through Bridport's thriving centre, yet within a minute's walk of a broad range of shopping, leisure and cultural experiences to suit all tastes. To name but a few, Bridport's many excellent amenities include a historic, twice-weekly street market, arts centre, leisure centre and schools for children of all ages. The town centre is a Conservation Area, and the area as a whole is designated one of Outstanding Natural Beauty with the stunning Jurassic Coast World Heritage site just 2 miles south of the town in West Bay. Lyme Regis and Dorchester are both within easy reach, and mainline stations in Dorchester and Axminster offer regular rail services to London (Waterloo).


Mains water, drainage, electricity and gas. Gas fired central heating.
