The garden is large by most standards providing space for growing produce as well as formal planting and seating areas. To the side of the house is a garden shed and log store.
The house benefits from solar panels which generate electricity, is double glazed and has gas central heating. The small lane which provides vehicular access from the road is owned by this property with access across it for neighbouring houses. NO ONWARD CHAIN.
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.

Windows are uPVC double glazed and there is gas fired central heating throughout. Sold with the benefit of no onward chain.
