With regards to viewing properties, please bear in mind that there will be strict controls in how we do this. Viewings can only be carried out where there are no vulnerable occupants in a property and where no viewers (or agent) are showing any symptoms. More than one person (but only from the same household and no children) will be allowed inside the property and viewers will need to bring their own mask and gloves and be asked not to touch anything during the viewing. Social distancing will have to be observed as much as possible. Please only view if you are sure the house might be 'the one' for you. Thank you for your understanding!
A very spacious four bedroom home, built in 1999 set in a small close of similar properties in the village of Thorncombe, within catchment for the Woodroffe Secondary School in Lyme Regis. The well presented accommodation comprises four double bedrooms, one with en-suite shower room, family bathroom, large landing, hallway with ground floor WC, spacious lounge with fireplace with log burner and doors to the conservatory, separate dining room, kitchen and utility room. The rooms are generous throughout, the accommodation well planned and the property has been well maintained. The garden is quite private with the garage at the far end accessed by a driveway to the side of the house, which is shared with the neighbouring property. There are lovely countryside views from the first floor. Windows and doors are uPVC double glazed and there is oil fired central heating as Thorncombe is not on mains gas.

Thorncombe village lies in the western corner of Dorset close to the Devon and Somerset borders and just 11 miles inland from the popular seaside resort of Lyme Regis on the Jurassic coast. The nearest towns are Chard (5 miles) and Crewkerne (6 miles) and the seaside town of Lyme Regis is just 10 miles to the south. The area has been designated as one of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the village itself has a very strong community with many local clubs on offer and an excellent community run shop/PO/cafe.
