Pennyfields is a fine detached chalet-style residence traditionally built in the Canadian style in 1974 with re-constituted stone elevations under a tiled roof. It was cleverly designed so that most of the rooms take full advantage of the fantastic southerly aspect and country/coastal views. The extensive accommodation is well proportioned, very well presented and versatile being arranged over 3 floors. The property will appeal to a wide range of buyers either seeking an annexe or one large home. The annexe is ideal for a dependant relative or letting purposes (long term or holiday) or as a guest suite for friends and family. It has been designed to be self-contained if required with its own private entrance. Alternatively it would be very easy to incorporate the annexe into the main residence as one large property.
Under the current ownership since 2006 an extensive number of improvements and alterations have been carried out.
The many excellent features include:-
* Oil-fired central heating
* PV Roof panels generating very useful income (original high tariff rate - 21 year contract remaining)
* Replacement UPVC double glazed windows and UPVC fascias
* Large sitting room with fireplace and multi-fuel stove
* Kitchen/breakfast room with custom built solid oak units and Cannon LPG cooker range
* Large principal bedroom with en suite bathroom
* Newly installed annexe kitchen with electric oven and gas hob
* Glass floor feature to the annexe
* Large roof terrace/sun balcony
* Fitted carpets
* Solid oak engineered flooring and Travertine floor tiles
* Landscaping and fencing to the gardens and grounds together with a large timber summerhouse/studio
A further big feature of Pennyfields are the extensive south facing gardens and grounds including a good sized paddock, again enjoying the stunning open views over Bridport to the sea at West Bay.
Pennyfields stands in a private & elevated south facing position with extensive views over the southern part of Bridport and the surrounding countryside including West Bay and the sea. It is situated on the western outskirts of Bridport and close to the open countryside. The immediate locality is designated as being one of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the nearby Jurassic Coast, much of which is controlled by the National Trust and designated a World Heritage Site.
The thriving Georgian market town of Bridport is only about 0.5 - 1 mile to the east providing excellent shopping and business facilities together with Bridport Arts Centre and Electric Cinema/entertainment venue. Bridport Leisure Centre with swimming pool and playing fields is very nearby. The beautiful nearby Jurassic coast is within about 1.5 miles at West Bay where there is a picturesque harbour, bathing beaches, golf course and the South-West Coastal path with stunning cliff top walks. The pretty coastal village of Eype with an excellent pub and access to the coast is within 1 mile. Bridport also offers a great selection of primary schools and a secondary school. Nearby Symondsbury Village also has a primary school.
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.
