THE PROPERTY

35 Victoria Grove is a charming and unique mid-terrace character home which is superbly positioned within easy, level walking distance of Bridport town centre on one of the town's most highly sought-after streets. Believed to date back to 1870, the property exhibits the generously proportioned rooms, high ceilings and gorgeous character features typical of the Victorian era of architecture, now interlaced with modern conveniences. In addition to some rarely-seen attributes such as the sauna in the family bathroom, the property is decorated with great flair throughout, enhancing the sense of unique personality which sets this home apart from the usual Victorian house. A further benefit is the glorious outlook to the rear which stretches across Bridport and takes in the well-known local landmarks of Eype Down and Allington Hill.

From the entrance porch, the front door opens into a mosaic tiled hall, which in turn gives access to two charming reception rooms, the kitchen/breakfast room and a useful utility. Stairs rise, past the cloakroom located off the half-landing, to the first floor where there is a large principal bedroom, the generous walk-in wardrobe of which offers potential to create ensuite facilities, along with the family bath/shower room, completed with sauna. On the second floor there are three further bedrooms, each well proportioned, providing ample space for family life.

OUTSIDE

The unique and beautifully presented interior is mirrored outside, where there is a charming west-facing rear garden which has cleverly been arranged into rooms , each designed to take full advantage of the sun at different times of day. Each room enjoys well stocked flower beds with fruit trees interspersed throughout the garden and a delightful water feature, setting an appealing environment for al fresco dining, relaxing and entertaining. Quite individually for a property so close to town, the property also benefits from an above-ground swimming pool which, being positioned at the far end of the garden, is heavily screened from the view of neighbours. There is also a gardener's loo and a timber shed within the garden.

SITUATION

Victoria Grove is one of Bridport's most sought after addresses owing to its position within level walking distance of the town centre and two well regarded Primary Schools. 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.
