Guide price

Bedrooms: 4
A spacious detached four bedroom village house with a wealth of accommodation and parking, to the centre of Charmouth with views to the sea.

Courtfield, as the name suggests, was built in a field in 1933 and has classic rendered elevations under a tiled roof. The beauty of this house is its position. The house lies away from passing traffic along its own private drive, to the centre of the village of Charmouth within walking distance of shops, public houses, restaurants and most importantly the world renowned fossil beach on the Jurassic coastline. The house, during our clients' tenure, has undergone a rolling programme of renewal and refurbishment that has taken in the gas fired boiler, the kitchen and the three bath/shower rooms creating a well-balanced family home in a good state of repair.

The accommodation is conventionally arranged around a generously proportioned hallway on the ground floor with an entrance lobby in front, above which there is an equally light and airy landing from which all the principal rooms are accessed. The sitting room lies on the South side of the house and is centred around an attractive stone fireplace beyond which bifold doors give way to a lovely garden room, with a second set of bifold doors that stretch across much of the width of the back of the house and look out over the garden and to the sea beyond. To the other side of the hall there is a formal dining room beside which is a fully equipped contemporary kitchen with a comprehensive range of floor and wall mounted units and cupboards with hardwood worksurfaces over. Integrated appliances include an induction hob, two electric ovens, a large larder fridge, a dishwasher and a wine fridge. Beyond the kitchen there is a similarly fitted utility room while off the hallway there is a downstairs cloakroom and a cloaks hanging cupboard. The ground floor is for the most part laid to an attractive hardwood floor with the exception of the garden room, kitchen and the utility room which have attractive yet practical ceramic tile. Upstairs the star of the show is undoubtedly the principal bedroom, which has a dressing table area to one end with a French door out onto the balcony which allows the best of the sea views to be enjoyed. To one side there is an en suite shower room with a double sized shower fitted with Wi-Fi operated control and twin floating wash hand basins. The three remaining bedrooms share a shower room and a bathroom, all similarly equipped in contemporary style. The property has recently replaced UPVC double glazing, a water softener, intruder/fire alarm and gas fired central heating.

To the front of the house vehicular access is via a gated pillar-flanked entrance along a private tarmac drive leading up to both the front door and a double garage, in front of which there is extensive parking and turning with a second area of parking to one side. Behind the second area of parking there is a large potting shed, a greenhouse, composting area, a storeroom and a workshop that adjoins the double garage. Both the double garage and the workshop are equipped with light and power. Beside the garage there is a utility area that makes an ideal bin storage area. The rear gardens are southerly facing with an area of terrace immediately to the rear of the garden room giving way to substantial area of lawn edged by herbaceous and shrub planting, designed to give shape colour form and privacy throughout the year. Halfway along the garden there is a sun house that is equipped with light and power while on the West side of the house there is a shaded garden laid to stone setts with a pergola over that makes an ideal entertaining area during the middle of the day. From the terrace and gardens views can be seen to the sea in the distance.
