This property provides a great opportunity for improvement/redevelopment. The building is a detached three bedroom, Woolaway bungalow in need of modernisation and repair set on a large plot of around 0.6 acre in a quiet wooded location above Lyme Regis. Alternatively, there is the opportunity to remove and replace the existing dwelling with a new build home (subject to consents). The existing footprint provides single storey accommodation comprising; a large lounge with good sized kitchen, three bedrooms, bathroom and additional reception room. The property is set along a quiet lane with a bridle path to one side and just under 5 miles by road (or just over 2.5 miles walk) to the beach at Lyme Regis. The existing home benefits from mains electricity and water with septic tank drainage. There are currently a large number of mature trees throughout the garden and with some reduction in numbers, the plot could provide a fabulous opportunity for greener living. There would be plenty of space to grow your own and the possibility of installing solar panels and alternative heating sources.

The seaside resort of Lyme Regis, famed for its historic connections and the Cobb Harbour remains popular with visitors. The town retains much of its original charm and a good variety of shops restaurants and places of interest to visit. There are many events throughout the year including a good range of live music and for those who would rather be on the sea, there are sailing and gig rowing clubs. This expanse of coast line has been designated a World Heritage Site and is affectionately known as the Jurassic coast. Bus services run regularly between the local towns of Bridport and Axminster, where the station runs a mainline service to London Waterloo and Exeter. The property is very well placed for proximity to the highly regarded Woodroffe Secondary School, which has been described by Ofsted as 'outstanding', with many house hunters seeking an address within the catchment area. Alternatively, the Colyton Grammar School, which is constantly ranked as one of the best in the country is approximately 8 miles to the west.
