An extended four bedroom house with potential for further enlargement if desired and double garage with room above/potential self-contained annexe set in a large plot of around an acre at Raymonds Hill, just over three and a half miles to Lyme Regis and two to Axminster, where there is a mainline train station.
The property began life as a bungalow but has been extended under the current ownership with accommodation now comprising: four first floor bedrooms, including a large master with en-suite bathroom, family bathroom, entrance porch, large entrance hall, dining room, lounge with open fire, adjoining reception/bedroom 5, very spacious kitchen/dining/living room, utility room and cloakroom.
Just behind the house is a large double garage, which has been built with double skin and therefore suitable for an easy conversion to annexed accommodation. The garage has a substantial first floor space, which could become a games room or office. The front of the property is well screened from the road with a driveway leading to the house and providing parking for several vehicles. The extensive garden is mainly laid to grass with a large variety of trees, both mature and young. In addition, there are fruit trees, vegetable beds, a small shrub copse, a pond and a greenhouse. There is enormous scope to further develop the garden and the house if desired, however, on offer is an good sized family home with
double garage on a large plot.
