Beautifully proportioned four bedroom detached barn conversion with an annex and outbuildings, set in approximately 7.4 acres with wonderful views over Eype to the sea.

Beautifully proportioned four bedroom detached barn conversion with an annex and outbuildings, set in approximately 7.4 acres with wonderful views over Eype to the sea.

The property has a rare combination of space, position and view. The property itself is believed to date back to the 18th Century and was originally built as a barn. It was converted in the 1970s into the house, creating a series of beautifully proportioned rooms rarely seen other than in substantial country houses. The house is positioned in a quiet backwater just a short drive from the centre of Bridport yet within half a mile of the beach, away from passing traffic in open countryside, while the sea and country views are spectacular and ever-changing and can be enjoyed all year round from the comfort of the drawing room.
The stage is set on entering the house, with an understated hall complete with a classic staircase to one side with, to the other, a view straight through into the garden in the Georgian style. To the left-hand side of the hallway there is a large dining room, which in turn gives way to the drawing room which centres around an imposing Portland stone fireplace with an inset wood burning stove. To the South side large picture windows and two sets of double doors take full advantage of the views out to the sea. Beyond the drawing room there is a library/study that has been equipped with a set of handcrafted bespoke book shelves made of solid Maple, inlaid with Cherrywood. A door to one side leads through to a large studio with a vaulted ceiling that could be used in any number of ways. To the other side of the hallway there is a beautifully appointed contemporary kitchen tailor-made to our client?s specifications with Corian worksurfaces and extensive range of hidden units and cupboards designed to provide maximum storage but remain unobtrusive. To one side of the worksurface peninsular there is a Wenge hardwood breakfast bar while integrated appliances include two Miele electric ovens, a Neff induction hob and extractor fan. Bi-folding windows above the sink allow the room to open up in to the conservatory, which provides a breakfasting room and a daytime living area throughout the year. Beyond the kitchen there is a large utility room equipped with a comprehensive range of floor and wall mounted units and cupboards, a butler's sink, plumbing for a washing machine and space for a tumble dryer.
On the ground floor the floors are laid predominantly to solid Oak floors with the exception of the kitchen, utility room and the conservatory which are laid to quality ceramic tile. There is a contemporary cloakroom accessed off the hall. Upstairs the feeling of space is further enhanced by a spacious landing that stretches half the width of the house, with the principal bedroom suite having the best of the views out to the sea with an en-suite fully tiled shower room and a dressing room. The three remaining bedrooms have use of a bathroom equipped with both a shower and a bath and shower room. The bathrooms have been equipped in some style with Groehe and Villeroy & Bosch fittings and the use of Travertine and ceramic tile underpinning the quality contemporary theme. The property has gas fired central heating provided by three separate gas boilers, has an automatic backup generator, is fully double glazed and is in excellent decorative order throughout. In short it is a spacious and very polished house indeed.

The Annex has a sitting room, a kitchen equipped with a comprehensive range of floor and wall mounted units and cupboards with space for everyday dining table, a double bedroom and a bathroom equipped with both a shower and a bath. It is plumbed for central heating however no boiler is currently installed
