Full Description:


Bell Cliff House is a delightful property, believed to be Regency but with much older origins (with a Victorian extension later added). The Fisherman's Cottage at the rear has its own unique character.

In our opinion, Bell Cliff House is one of Lyme s special properties exuding character and charm and occupying a sensational location adjacent to Bell Cliff and above the Marine Parade with views from most principal rooms taking in the panorama from the old town in the east, down the west Dorset coastline to Portland and westwards along Marine Parade to the Cobb Harbour. It also features it's own sun terrace taking in the views and enjoying a southerly aspect.

The current owners have carried out a considerable amount of remodeling and improvement, all with great attention to detail which, amongst other things, has included the conversion of the loft space into extra ensuite bedroom accommodation. The overall project has successfully resulted in the creation of a tastefully designed and unique property which combines an elegant mix of modern amenities whilst still retaining its inherent character features. It also has the benefit of solar PV panels on the southern side of the property which provide a useful income as well as upgraded energy efficiency.

The layout is extremely versatile and it has excellent potential to utilise part of the ground floor accommodation and the fourth bedroom as a self-contained cottage or B&B whilst still retaining a generous proportion of the property as a main home. Alternatively, it would make an excellent second home or holiday investment.

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, theatre 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.
