4 bedroom House - Detached located at Uplyme - Guide Price of £ 725,000
Full Description:AN IMPRESSIVE DETACHED COUNTRY PROPERTY IN IMMACULATE ORDER THROUGHOUT
A PICTURESQUE SETTING WITH LOVELY VIEWS
The current owners purchased a small stone built cottage about 5 years ago and embarked upon a comprehensive refurbishment and extension project which was completed in 2015. The result has been a beautiful country house which successfully combines stylish modern features with the original character property. They employed a respected local building company well known for the quality of their workmanship and attention to detail.
The accommodation is spacious and bright and takes advantage of the lovely views across the Lym Valley to Knoll Hill and Rocombe.
We understand that Coachmans Cottage was originally the coachman's accommodation and stabling for the nearby country house (Woodhouse). It enjoys a quiet and secluded rural setting approached by a private lane just below Woodhouse Hill in an 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty' backing onto mature woodland - a 'Woodland Trust' Pinetum, with many delightful walks and bridleways in the vicinity.
There are excellent local village amenities at Uplyme (about 0.5 mile) including a post office and general store at the petrol station, village hall and parish church, pub, highly regarded primary school, football and cricket club, tennis courts etc. The Jurassic Coast at Lyme Regis is about 2 miles away and inland some 5 miles is the market town of Axminster with a main line railway station (Exeter - Waterloo line).
