A superb family house with a large rear garden in a wonderful village setting. Having undergone a complete renovation with complete eco-retrofit, the property now offers fantastic eco credentials and a healthy, comfortable home to enjoy. EPC A - Main House, EPC D - Chapel


The property lies in the heart of the picturesque Bride Valley village of Litton Cheney, with views up towards a vineyard on one side there is a real feeling of being surrounded by Dorset's rolling hills.

The community is very active, with public house, village hall, primary school and church. 'Litton Lakes' nearby offer wild swimming and camping with a café onsite. The village is in a conservation area and lies within an area of outstanding natural beauty. The stunning Jurassic Coast is just a few miles away at West Bexington and Burton Bradstock. The bustling market town of Bridport is just seven miles away to the west.


3 The Green offers a rare opportunity to live in a period house with super eco-credentials, making this a healthy and comfortable home, for a family, multi-generational living. When the property was purchased by the current owners it was in need of complete renovation, with outdated heating and plumbing, and in need of modernising. They have worked tirelessly during their ownership to seek out the best and most suitable materials to allow the house to breathe, as an old house should, using sheep wool insulation where possible and adding in a brand new air source heat pump which cleverly keeps the house at a comfortable temperature. We have attached a separate crib sheet of full works carried out and materials used for more detailed information for those interested.


Main House- briefly comprises four bedrooms on the first floor with family bathroom, a double bedroom with ensuite shower room and open landing area ideal for an office on the second floor.

On the ground floor is a spacious entrance hallway leading to the kitchen/diner on the right hand side along with a utility room and WC and conservatory. Turning left from the hallway is the study, and two reception rooms which are inter-linking with stairs rising to the first floor. The sitting room is a peaceful space with four large sash windows and a wood burning stove.

Chapel- briefly comprises open plan living, dining and kitchen with a superb inglenook fireplace at the far end. Two bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor. There is a pretty garden to the front of the chapel and parking on the driveway to the main house.

Outside- The whole plot amounts to 0.4 acre with the gardens being about a third of an acre. Directly behind the house, accessed from the kitchen is a beautiful terraced area with an established grape vine trained over a pergola to allow natural light to filter into the kitchen in the darker months, whilst offering a shaded spot for alfresco dining in the summer months.

There are a number of specimen trees, fruit trees and shrubs in the large garden, which is mainly laid to lawn, with wild areas and wooded areas to allow nature to thrive. In the spring the garden is awash with bluebells and wild flowers in the summer. Vegetable areas have been created on one side with a poly-tunnel for year round growing. A small, original stone outbuilding offers log storage or garden machinery storage and summer house.
