Full Description:


This semi-detached ex-Local Authority house is believed to have been built in the 1930's and many of the original features have been retained (panelled doors, floorboards and picture rails).

In recent years the property has been transformed by imaginative improvements and modernisation creating a unique character style. On the ground floor there is a delightful open plan living area with doors from the Conservatory leading into the pretty cottage style garden which includes a wide variety of trees and shrubs and a bespoke Studio/Garden Room as well as an excellent timber decking area.

Energy efficiency has been greatly enhanced by cavity and loft insulation, uPVC double glazing and PV panels (which we understand produce an average annual income of £1,500).

The house is situated in an established residential area just a short walk from the River Lym alongside which is a picturesque stroll via the Old Town to the shops and seafront and inland to Uplyme.

Please note: The property can only be purchased by someone who has been living and working in the area for 3 years or more or if there is a local family connection. However, other cases may be
considered but all enquiries should be directed towards Magna Housing Association.

Lyme Regis is an historic 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.
