The Property

26 Market Street is a mid-terrace cottage in the heart of the picturesque coastal village of Abbotsbury. The property has two bedrooms, a good sized living room, modern fitted kitchen and a generous sized rear garden with tremendous potential.


Abbotsbury is a very beautiful village set in a spectacular location on the World Heritage Jurassic Coast. The village is well appointed with two pubs, an excellent butcher who specialises in local Long Horn beef, a village shop and post office and several art galleries and tearooms. To the east is the popular seaside town of Weymouth, with its Georgian seafront and 17th century harbour. Further west is the bustling market town of Bridport and the colourful, pretty town of Lyme Regis. The County Town of Dorchester lies just ten miles to the north east.


26 Market Street is located on the main B3157 Weymouth to Bridport road. From the Ilchester Arms Public House, travel in the direction of Bridport for approximately 50 metres and 26 Market Street is on the right hand side. Parking is on the roadside outside the property.



Enter via the front door into the living room. The living room features an open fire with built in shelving and cupboards on either side of the fire place. A doorway leads in to the recently modernised kitchen at the rear of the property. The kitchen has fitted floor and wall units, stainless steel sink, space for a freestanding cooker and plumbing for a washing machine. A door at the rear of the kitchen provides access to the rear yard and the outbuilding at the pack of the property.

The stairs which lead off the living room provide access to upstairs. At the top of the stairs is the bathroom featuring a white suite. The intention is to modernise the bathroom later this year. Also upstairs are two bedrooms, the master bedroom is located at the front of the property and is a very generous size being able to accomodate a double bed and a number of pieces of furniture. The second bedroom is a good sized single bedroom located at the back of the property.


The property has large garden to the rear which has been neglected for some time. The ingoing tenant will need to be able to see the potential of the plot and be willing to invest their time and effort to restore this garden to it’s former glory. There is also a large outhouse and yard between the garden and cottage which provide useful outdoor storage.


There is no off road parking but historically the occupier of this property has parked outside the property on the roadside.


In addition to the open fire there are night storage heaters throughout the property.
