5 bedroom House located at Lyme Regis - Guide Price of £ 750,000
Full Description:A DELIGHTFUL GEORGIAN HOUSE IN THE PICTURESQUE OLD TOWN (WITH PARKING FOR 5 CARS)
Lym House is one of Lyme's iconic period houses believed to date back to the mid 1700's and is Grade II Listed.
In 2003 the present owners embarked on an ambitious renovation project. They commissioned a highly regarded local architect to ensure that the scheme created a home which offered light, bright and well-proportioned accommodation with Georgian character and modern amenities.
Almost unique for a town centre property Lym House has a large private parking area for 5 cars.
The property enjoys an attractive riverside location in the historic 'Old Town' of Lyme Regis (part of the town's Conservation Area) within easy level walking distance of the shops and seafront via Coombe Street or alongside the tiny River Lym. Inland there is a pretty walk following the river to Uplyme.
Lyme Regis is a picturesque coastal town noted for its many character buildings, centuries old Cobb Harbour and unspoilt surrounding countryside. The town centre provides good shopping facilities for day to day needs and the larger centres of Taunton and Exeter are both about 28 miles away. There is a main line railway station at Axminster (6 miles inland). In Lyme Regis there is also a sailing club, bowls, golf course, museum, working town mill, library, theatre, cinema (currently closed) and numerous local societies.
The town is situated on the beautiful and unspoilt Devon and Dorset Jurassic Coast awarded World Heritage Site status by UNESCO in December 2001.
