Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 2
A charming Grade II Listed former coach house with parking located on a no-through lane in the town centre. Distant country views and west-facing courtyard garden. 2 double bedrooms. Grade II Listed.


Merton Cottage is a superb character home found in a tucked away position at the heart of Bridport town centre. The property, which is Grade II Listed, was originally a coach house and it is possible on closer inspection to tell where the archways through which the coaches would pass used to be, now large windows and the front door which ensure the accommodation is filled with natural light. The entire ground floor is arranged as an open plan sitting/dining room with a fitted kitchen area, providing a highly sociable yet comfortable setting for all types of entertaining and everyday enjoyment alike. Upstairs there are two double bedrooms, one of which enjoys a vanity sink and the other benefitting from built in wardrobes, as well as the bathroom. The property is now in need of sympathetic updating to ensure it can continue to cater to the requirements of the busy modern lifestyle.


The property benefits from a private, walled courtyard which, owing to its west facing aspect, is somewhat of a sun trap and provides the perfect environment for relaxing and dining al fresco. Primarily laid to paved sun terrace, this charming, fully enclosed space further emphasises the property's suitability for a number of uses including as a full-time or second home, a buy-to-let investment or holiday let.


The property is situated in a convenient location on the corner of Rax lane and Barrack Street and is therefore very close to the vibrant Bridport Town Centre. With it's twice weekly market, a host of interesting shops, restaurants/cafes and businesses and the World Heritage Site Jurassic Coast just a short drive away, the town is popular with holidaymakers and locals alike. Further afield, the County Town of Dorchester is within easy reach, where there are mainline stations offering regular rail services to London (Waterloo), Bristol and Bath.


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