3 bedroom Cottage located at Wootton Fitzpaine, Bridport - Guide Price of £ 289,000
Full Description:A PICTURESQUE 'ARTS AND CRAFTS' COTTAGE IN AN UNSPOILT WEST DORSET VILLAGE
We understand that this pretty semi-detached cottage was built in 1906 in an Arts and Crafts style to a design by Scottish Architect Francis Troup who designed the impressive Village Hall and Thistlegate House.
The house does need some refurbishment but has been improved by uPVC double glazing, a fairly modern kitchen and there is a great deal of scope for extension/alteration.
The property is situated on the western edge of the picturesque small village of Wootton Fitzpaine in the heart of unspoilt Dorset countryside and it is quietly tucked away with good sized private gardens backing onto farmland with attractive views. The coastal village of Charmouth is only about 1.5 miles away and offers a selection of shops, church, primary school, pub etc. and an extensive sandy beach. Lyme Regis is approximately 3 miles and Bridport 7 miles. In Wootton there is a lively local community centred on the village hall and the club.

The cottage is set well back from the lane (about 20m) and a driveway providing ample parking runs along the upper side of the Garden.
The extensive front and rear Gardens (approximately 1/4 acre) are fairly level and secluded with hedges, shrubs and small trees (including apple trees) and backs onto meadows beyond the back boundary.
We understand that mains water and electricity are connected and that there is a private sewerage system serving No. 20 and neighbouring properties but applicants should verify this with their own enquiries.
Note: The Environment Agency has introduced new rules about surface water drainage from septic tanks to rivers or streams which come into effect on 1st January 2020. Nos. 18-21 Meerhay Lane (two pairs of houses) drain into a shared septic tank which in turn soaks away into a stream and accordingly attention is required to satisfy the new rules. The owners of No. 21 Meerhay Lane, Pass Trust, are intending to install a small Klargester treatment plant serving Nos. 20 and 21 Meerhay Lane which will satisfy the regulations. The total cost of this work we understand is around £8,000. The purchaser of No. 20 will be required to contribute £4,000 as a 50% share. The asking price of No. 20 has been reduced to more than allow for this additional cost.
