Property Description

Tenure: Freehold

A detached 1930`s house with a garage, garden and gated parking, situated on a one-way lane in the village of Uplyme. This cherished, three bedroom family home has been in the same ownership for almost 18 years and the previous owners were also there for 18 years, so it has been a happy home for two families. The property is set in a walled garden and enjoys good privacy and is within a short walk (about half a mile) of the Woodroffe secondary school, Mrs Ethelston`s Primary School and the village shop. The property has retained some attractive period features, including panelled doors and picture rails and has two large bay windows. On the first floor are three bedrooms, two generous doubles and a single bedroom, a spacious and bright landing and a bathroom, whilst at ground level, there is a hallway, a living room with bay window and fireplace with a wood burning stove, a spacious L shaped kitchen/dining / living room and a rear porch providing good space for muddy boots and coats.

Outside, the garden lies mainly on the south side of the house with the driveway (on the east side) leading to a garage. Behind the garage is a small yard which leads to a large outbuilding, currently serving as a utility/laundry space and offering copious storage. There is potential for this outbuilding to be converted into additional accommodation or a more formal substantial garage, subject to consents.

Uplyme lies just 1.5 miles to the north west of Lyme Regis. The village has a great deal to offer including a local pub, busy village hall, petrol station, with shop and post office, playing field, tennis court, cricket and football clubs and two local schools of excellent repute; namely Mrs Ethelston`s Primary and the Woodroffe Secondary school (both rated "Good" in recent Ofsted inspections).

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.
