As the name implies, the property comprises a former village store/post office, together with a substantial house, understood to date back to the 1700's with later additions. It has natural stone and rendered elevations under a slate roof. Under the current ownership of about 4 years the property has been subject to a whole number of improvements and in particular a large single storey kitchen/dining/family room extension. There is the benefit of gas fired central heating, replacement UPVC sealed unit windows, a security alarm, well equipped kitchen with built-in appliances (AEG eye level electric double fan assisted oven, Lamona electric ceramic hob and stainless steel cooker hood) and a modern shower room.
The extensive accommodation is arranged over 3 floors enjoying lovely country views.
There is also the benefit of off road parking and a small easily maintained garden.
HOME & INCOME/BUSINESS/CONVERSION/ POTENTIAL
The shop/post office is a very well established business and was trading until the middle of October 2017. The business could be re-opened. Alternatively, it offers excellent potential for alternative business uses or conversion for an annexe, long term/holiday letting unit or incorporation to create one large house, subject to any necessary planning consents.
There is a good sized tarmac driveway/parking area and a side lawned garden. At the rear is a courtyard garden with lawn, side paved terrace and 2 sheds. At the front of the former shop is a small stone paved area.
The property is pleasantly situated within the centre of the old part of Bradpole village and enjoys country views. The excellent facilities include a butchers shop, public house, church and village hall. Secondary and primary schools are within one mile. It lies within the Conservation Area and also within an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with attractive rolling countryside and many footpaths including a cycle way down to Bridport.
The thriving Georgian market of Bridport is only about 1 mile to the south providing excellent shopping and business facilities together with a leisure centre. The beautiful World Heritage coast known as the Jurassic coast is a further 1½ miles at West Bay (the location for the ITV drama Broadchurch) where there is a picturesque harbour, bathing beaches, golf course and the South West Coastal path. The larger centres of Dorchester, Yeovil and Weymouth are all within about 20 - 30 minutes driving distance with main line rail services to London and the West Country.
