THE PROPERTY

4 Billets Mead is a charming end-of-terrace home located in a superb position on the edge of sought-after Symondsbury village and offering spacious, versatile and characterful accommodation throughout. Along with its neighbours, the property was originally a grain mill, believed to date back to the Domesday Book, which was converted into the four cottages seen today in 1836. As such, there are a host of character features throughout including stripped pine panelled internal doors, exposed stone and floorboards and impressive cast iron fireplaces. Under the current ownership, many improvements have been carried out which have greatly enhanced the accommodation, such as reconfiguration of the second floor bedrooms, refurbishment of the kitchen and bathroom suites and replacement of the boiler, to name but a few. Consequently, with just under an acre of south-facing grounds, a self-contained studio annexe, every modern convenience on hand and lovely views across the village and surrounding countryside to Colmers Hill, this would be a fantastic home for a broad variety of purchasers.

Internally, the accommodation is very well proportioned and has a sociable emphasis throughout the living rooms, which can all be found on the ground floor and include an L-shaped kitchen/dining room, a sitting room and a useful playroom, snug or office. These are supported by excellent domestic facilities including a large reception hall/boot room, a utility room and a ground floor cloakroom. Also on the ground floor is the annexe which is set slightly apart from the rest of the accommodation, across the reception hall, but is connected to the main house by an internal door, allowing it to be used as one larger home if desired. Comprising an open plan living room/bedroom with fitted kitchen and an adjoining shower room, the annexe is ideal for extended family, grown-up children or regular guests, and could also be used to realise an income stream via long term or holiday lets (the current owners have previously achieved a good income via AirBnB). The bedrooms are arranged over the upper two storeys with two double bedrooms and a bath- or shower room on each floor.

OUTSIDE

The grounds at 4 Billets Mead are a significant benefit to the property. Located to the front of the property, enjoying a sunny, primarily south-facing aspect, and extending to nearly 1 acre, the gardens provide a wonderful setting for spending time out of doors. In addition to the established formal lawn, which is perfect for al fresco dining, relaxing or entertaining, the garden offers a touch of the good life with a vegetable plot and a large orchard with pig and chicken runs. There is also a separate, enclosed garden adjoining the annexe.

A further benefit is the generous parking area to the front of the property, which provides space for several vehicles.

SITUATION

The property is set in a tucked-away position within the highly sought-after, picturesque village of Symondsbury which is situated just 1.5 miles from Bridport town centre and lies at the foot of the iconic local landmark, Colmers Hill. Within the village amenities include a primary school, a popular public house , a church and the Symondsbury Estate where there are several independent retailers and a cafe.
